I provide Psychotherapy, Life & Clinical Coaching, Divorce Coaching & Mediation, Financial psychology counseling & expatriate counseling for individuals, couples and families; treatment and intervention for those affected by mood disorders (depression and anxiety), trauma, grief, loss and professional & personal transition. I have lived abroad, experienced numerous cultural, personal, and professional transitions myself which I draw on in my work. My combined background in business & mental health gives me a unique perspective that allows me to work with individuals who are facing challenges in their personal and professional lives.

I meet clients where they are to determine the most appropriate path & to set a customized therapeutic treatment plan. I work with many indivduals but, my "sweet spot" clients are young adult, middle-aged men & women in the midst of personal and/or professional transition, those struggling with anxiety, avoidance, attachment disorders, divorce & addiction.

My combined background in psychotherapy, business & divorce mediation allows me to effectively work and treat people with clinical challenges connected to professional and personal transition ones. My experience allows me to "counsel" and "coach". I specialize in Financial Psychology & run a group called the Psychology of Spending for Women.

Molly J. McDonald's Groups

The Psychology of Spending

Molly J. McDonald, LICSW, MBA, leads an instructional group exploration to help you identify what your money personality is, how it is connected to your mental health and wellbeing, and how to manage your money LIFE. Molly is a psychotherapist who works with individuals, couples and families. She also has an MBA and a long career in business, finance and investment. She counsels individuals on mental health challenges, but has also worked with individuals in career transition and provided financial planning and coaching. She understands how inextricably linked our money "personality" is to our mental health and wellbeing and has incorporated both into her practice.
