Professional statement

Molly is well-versed in Cognitive Behavioral Therapy and Dialectical Behavioral Therapy, which are both evidenced-based practices that focus on how changing thought patterns and behavior can influence a persons's day-to-day feelings and experiences. In addition, she has cultivated years of using different modalities such as motivational interviewing, trauma-informed care, harm reduction, and crisis management.

She has helped clients diagnosed with ADHD, depression, anxiety, eating disorders, suicidal ideation, and other behavioral or personality patterns that may interfere with living a fulfilled life. She has also worked with domestic violence survivors as well as clients who want to talk about relationship dynamics within family, and between partners and friends. Molly has a rich experience practicing with all different racial and gender identifying populations. As a white cis-woman, she recognizes how her own life experiences and privileges might vary from someone of a different race, religion, or gender identity.


Message to clients

So often in today's world we can feel like we are being pushed along rather than being the captains of our ship. Oftentimes we search to be seen and loved, but find ourselves in other roles we never imagined encompassing. So how do we take back our selves and identities, how do we learn to love ourselves more, create more community, be authentically us? If these struggles resonate with you, I would be grateful to join you on your journey.

I became passionate about social work in my final year of undergraduate school where I wrote my thesis on racism and incarceration. This passion led me to working in a non-profit organization where I worked with un-housed veterans for the last seven years. This work has allowed me to take a glimpse into the inner workings of nonprofits, homelessness, government involvement, and crisis management. Throughout my postgraduate education and experience, I learned that the therapy space is a perfect place to exercise my passion for social justice. As someone who deeply values inclusivity, radical change, and sex positivity, I want the space I create in therapy to reflect the nuanced world of today. If some of your goals include finding out more about yourself and the way you function in the world, creating sustainable behavioral change, breaking away from conventional systems, or finding more fulfilling interpersonal relationships, I would be a great fit for you on this journey.

Out-of-network billing options

Therapist's note

A Good Place Therapy providers are out-of-network for all insurance carriers except Lyra Health; some providers are also in-network with NYU student health insurance (CHP).

Prospective clients also have the option of seeing one of the many excellent LMSWs who take NYU CHP insurance; they also offer fees starting at $100/session if clients meet income eligibility.

Clinicians will file out-of-network benefits directly on behalf of clients, so that clients only need to pay the deductible or the copay up front. Many people have excellent OON benefits and after their deductibles are met, they pay only 20-50% of the fee. A Good Place also commonly reduces what clients pay until they reach their deductible.
