Short-Term & Wellness Counseling

Mollee is a Nationally Certified Counselor (NCC) and a Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC). She is able to offer short-term counseling to children, adolescents, adults, couples, and families to address a variety of concerns, including anxiety, depression, anger, stress, work-life balance, insomnia, holistic wellness, life transitions, family changes, behavior and school concerns, self-esteem, grief and loss, and communication concerns. Mollee draws from several theoretical bases, including Person-Centered, Family Systems, Experiential, Mindfulness-based, and Cognitive Behavioral Therapy. Mollee creates an intentionally eclectic approach that is tailored to the needs and goals of each individual, couple, or family. Should you choose to contact her for counseling, Mollee will work with you to identify counseling goals and determine whether short-term counseling is appropriate to meet your goals and needs. Mollee will work with individuals, couples, and families to navigate community providers if you determine together that short-term counseling is not appropriate for your situation.

Contact Mollee directly (see info on this page) to set up an appointment with her or request a referral to a community provider.

Navigation

If you are interested in counseling but would prefer to work with a community-based provider, Mollee can help identify and refer you to local counselors, social workers, psychologists, psychiatrists, and agencies that meet your treatment needs.

As the wellness director, Mollee can also partner with you to explore community resources that can meet your needs. She can help you navigate referrals to mental health counselors, continuing care retirement communities, in-home care providers, and more. To get started, contact Mollee directly (see info on this page).

Practices

Christ Episcopal Church recognizes that wellness is a path and practice, rather than a destination. As such, Christ Church aims to provide regular wellness offerings for parishioners of all ages.
