While our thoughts and emotions are important, equally of value are the somatic sensations experienced within the body.
The journey towards therapy can feel challenging. You may find yourself feeling alone, scared, misunderstood, or completely stuck. Having someone by your side to explore the parts of yourself that prevent you from living the life you desire can make a world of difference. I offer a compassionate and supportive presence. It is my intention to help guide my clients towards developing a healthy and strong sense of self, and an understanding of the feelings and emotions that emerge during the counseling process. Being human involves not just the mind but also the body and soul.

Do you struggle with frustrating issues that you, your family, or your partner(s) can’t seem to get past? If you’re going through a period of loss, change, or feeling stuck, therapy might be the way forward. My therapy style is collaborative and integrates the wisdom from my client’s experiences and from counseling theories rooted in empowerment and equity (Narrative Therapy, Person-Centered Therapy, Somatic Experiencing, and Emotionally Focused Therapy). My therapeutic work is rooted in anti-racist, anti-capitalist, anti-fatphobic, trans- and queer-affirming, polyam and kink-affirming, neurodivergence-affirming theory and practice.

I draw from several models such as Internal Family Systems, EMDR, Somatic Interventions and Psychodynamic theory.
As human beings we are incredibly resilient but weathering the storms of life can be difficult at times without additional support. Counseling can provide an outlet that allows us to explore our pain and gain an understanding of our true Self. I take an integrative, holistic, and trauma informed approach to counseling. Using a warm and open approach, together we will work to discover the resources you hold within you to promote healing and growth. I have experience working with survivors of both childhood and adult trauma.

I am skilled to go beyond one-size-fits-all approaches by weaving proven modalities with expressive/narrative techniques, body-based/ somatic practices, decolonized cultural understandings of complex trauma, and harm reduction principles.
I walk alongside folks moving through life transitions, intersectional identity exploration, and trauma recovery. My warm, relational, anti-oppressive approach prioritizes intergenerational healing in historically silenced Black and Brown communities by centering healing justice/collective liberation. Community members come to me with tension in their bodies, feeling stuck, and unsure what to do next. I help children/teens, young adults, parents, and families put down their "protective armor" in order to lighten the emotional load. Together, we can co-create the anti-racist, identity-affirming care that you have been longing for.

I am a somatic and existential therapist at heart.
If you're reading this, you are likely going through some type of transition and feeling like you need support sifting through the muck. Whether expected, anticipated, wanted, or frustrating, life changes can impact us at all stages, and come with complex behaviors and emotions. My clients are adults and teens (14+) navigating self esteem, identity, changing friendships, and changes in independence. You may be experiencing shifting roles in family and relationships and are curious about family patterns. The ultimate transition - death and loss - can come with its own depth of experience and new understandings of healing.

I utilize mindfulness practices and a somatic or body-centered approach as well as trauma reprocessing techniques such as EMDR and EFT.
I am not currently accepting new clients. Thank you. The collaborative relationship that we create in therapy is a powerful tool for positive change. Therapy leads to increased awareness about the kinds of past and present patterns that cause problems in our lives. As a therapist, I facilitate the change process, increasing a client's coping, self-esteem and self-awareness, and life satisfaction.

Hi, my name is Molly and I have been a mental health professional for over 10 years. I am a person centered, trauma informed, anti-racist, LGBQTIA+ affirming, passionate clinician and a strong advocate for my clients. Most of us were never taught how to handle stress in a healthy way, or how our mind and body affect one another. Stress & trauma get stored in our bodies, that is why my approach is a combination of somatic and talk therapy combined with psychoeducation and action oriented treatment plans. We might be a good fit if...

I have a specialization in Hakomi, a mindfulness and somatic -based approach to counseling, and a certification in the Treatment of Eating Disorders.
You are so much more than your thoughts and impulses! My approach to counseling is holistic, client-centered and depth oriented, which encourages personal growth, transformation, and self-empowerment. I invite the whole person to come forward, even those parts we may have strong aversions to within ourselves. I offer ways to explore the self with curiosity and compassion, assisting clients in developing more acceptance of their individuality. I believe that the mind and body work together as one, and that when we observe them together, there is potential for new insights and a deeper connection to your innate wisdom.

My multi-dimensional approach is shaped by the latest research in neuroscience and relies on trauma-focused treatment specialties, including EMDR and Somatic Approaches, Attachment Therapy, DBT and Narcissistic Abuse Recovery.
I work with clients whose PTSD, anxiety, depression, and addictions were caused by relational trauma. This kind of trauma occurs when the actions of another violate the trust on which a relationship was built. The experience of profound and unexpected betrayal (as children or adults) can be deeply traumatic and cause lasting changes in the areas of the brain responsible for regulating emotion, thought, and memory.

I also believe that our bodies can tell us a lot, so I incorporate basic somatic work in my practice to help you reconnect with your body in a healing way.
Reaching out for help in any capacity can feel incredibly difficult and scary. My goal is to welcome you into a space where you feel safe, seen and heard, and to work with you right where you are at. This is your journey, and I am here to offer support and resources to guide you in the direction you desire to go. Whether you are struggling with anxiety, have unhealed wounds and trauma from the past, or are currently struggling with issues such as infertility, grief and loss (not just death experiences), or just need a safe space to feel, process and heal, I am here for you.

I have received training in approaches such as psychoanalysis, CBT, DBT, Narrative Therapy, and somatic experiencing.
Through a social justice lens, I accompany people on their journey to a more grounded and liberated life by exploring how our intersecting identities and cultural experiences have led to the ways we are hurt, but also hold the keys to how we heal. For my clients, these layers of oppression may result in anxiety, depression, and racial identity concerns. We'll work together to process your experience, draw out your strengths, and support your goals. I love working with Asian American adults, and other POC, to connect the impacts of history, oppression, and culture on mental health and wellbeing.

What type of Beaverton mental health professional is right for me?
While most types of therapy have a lot in common, they also fall into clusters that share core features, such as cognitive therapies or psychodynamic approaches. It is important to seek someone who practices evidence-based therapy, meaning one or more forms of treatment that have been scientifically evaluated and tested, and demonstrate consistent improvement for a majority of patients.

If you are unsure about choosing the right therapist, it might be useful to first learn more about therapy types and modalities.
How to find a therapist in Beaverton?
When looking to find a therapist, it is certainly important to consider training and credentials. Studies also indicate that the therapeutic alliance, or the relationship the client develops with the therapist, is an important factor in their ability to work together to achieve the client’s goals.

What method of therapy is right for me?
When it comes to treatment methods, there's no 'right way.’ Each method of therapy can be beneficial for a variety of issues. Finding a psychologist or therapist who is a good fit for you is the most important step to discovering what type of therapy, or combination of therapeutic approaches, will meet your individual needs. Learn what to expect from different types of therapy and how they work.

How to use my insurance?
Understanding cost and insurance coverage is an important concern for many people. With some basic research and conversations with prospective therapists, you should be able to have a good understanding of the best way to afford therapy.
