I’m passionate about working with adults who are experiencing various struggles including current or past trauma, stress, mood disorders, anxiety, ADHD, and more. I use an integrative, holistic approach to therapy, focusing on more than just treating clinical issues in order to help my clients create a healthier, more balanced life.
I create an open and non-judgmental therapeutic environment and nurture a positive therapeutic alliance with my clients. I also work with staff who offer medication management, psychedelic therapy (SPRAVATO®) to patients suffering from treatment-resistant depression, or TMS evaluations for those struggling with depression, OCD.

Her goal is to have her patients leave treatment feeling better than when they walked in.
Mollie is a licensed clinical social worker at Relief Mental Health in Oak Brook, Ill., where she serves teens and adults struggling with depression, anxiety, relationship issues, trauma, self-harm, grief, and more.
Mollie focuses on practical solutions and personal development to help clients reach their goals and establish necessary skills to improve. She’s compassionate, straightforward, and builds rapport through honesty, transparency, and providing a comfortable space to open up.
She consistently uses Dialectical Behavior Therapy, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, and Exposure and Response Prevention frameworks to educate clients on how to apply what skills work for them inside and outside of therapy. One of her favorite things about working with clients is watching them learn their own ways of applying the coping skills learned in session creatively. Mollie has found that the more clients can learn their own ways of applying techniques being taught, the more likely they are to find those skills independently in the future.
During sessions, Mollie’s clients can anticipate strengths-based and solution-focused interventions to build a healthy foundation of appropriate short-term goals. Mollie always encourages her clients to build momentum through making smaller, personalized efforts towards change that lead to a more natural transition of building longer term changes. Through this approach, clients can reach their full potential of self-efficacy and empowerment through practicing being comfortable with the uncomfortable.
When she senses traditional psychotherapy could be enhanced by other innovative interventions, she provides referrals for Relief treatments such as transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) and/or SPRAVATO® (esketamine) therapy.
Mollie earned a Master’s degree in social work and a Bachelor of Arts in psychology from Dominican University in River Forest, Ill. She enjoys exercising, watching hockey and football games, and going to concerts.
