I was raised in a Christian church and from a young age and much of my life my faith practice was about other people; serving others, supporting others, doing for others. All faithful things on the surface, however, in doing so I neglected and at times actively avoided where God was really calling me to be faithful; to know, cultivate, and celebrate who He made me to be. When I finally consciously decided to look inward I realized how filled with fear, anxiety, and shame I was. This was not who God formed when He knit me together in my mother's womb and breathed the breath of life into me. This was not who God sent into the world and told to go and proclaim the good news and freedom of the gospel. These were not thoughts and feelings coming from a God who rejoices over me and a Savior who died for me. I embraced an identity of shame because it allowed for me to hide from God, from meaningful relationships, and from myself. In doing so I remained protected from the chaos, unpredictability, and judgement of the world but the cost was great.
Thankfully, God is grace and mercy, full of unconditional love and works all things together for good. I firmly believe that the toughest battles and fiercest storms I faced were lessons in looking to God, and being equipped to faithfully support and encourage others amidst the storm. We are made with value, worth and purpose by a creator who loves us and made us in His image. He never intended for us to go through life alone or get to a place where we stop growing. I would be honored to partner with you as you seek who God is in your life and who you are in Gods purpose and plan. I leave with you a short list of scripture and quotes that guide my faith practice and I would encourage in our work together.

I’ve been working with Mollie for over a year. She’s counseled me through relationships, depression, anxiety, addictions, finding myself, healing from trauma as a child and helping me build my self to be who I have always wanted. She has giving me the space to cry and laugh during our sessions. She’s truly a diamond in the rough and is incredible at listening, observing and meeting my needs even when I haven’t been able to do so. She’s the counselor I’ve needed and I would recommend her to every body and any body. She is extremely talented, loving, kind, honest and very very safe to share all things with. She’s amazing! Thank you Mollie!
My faith and my life have greatly improved since working with Mollie. She provides a safe, judgement-free environment which helps me to share more and explore my faith and life in a deeper and more meaningful way.
She has helped me move from a ungodly situation to being right with the Lord in 2 weeks!
From the first message I received from Mollie till now, I have felt the presence of God. Every message I received from her was from the place of humility which reminds me of how Christ ministered to the broken people on earth. She told me the truth from a place of love. She encouraged me not just with her words but through her prayers and the word of God. I was also challenged to think differently about my situation which was such a healing experience. I honestly did not expect this when I signed up but it has been such a rewarding experience. I have already recommended 2 of my friends :)
I just start with her but she has enlightened me already in the few times we have talked.
