MOLLY SPAENI, MS, LMFT
Molly attended Edgewood College where she received a Studies in Education degree and a Master's degree in Marriage and Family Therapy. Molly was trained in Systems Theory and believes the symptoms an individual experiences are not always a reflection of the individual alone but may be a product of the environment, family, and relationships the individual is a part of. In order for one’s issues, concerns, or symptoms to change, the system the individual is a part of must also change.
Molly has experience working with anxiety, depression, trauma, perfectionism, relationship issues, disordered eating in-remission, body image concerns, borderline personality disorder, and affected family members. Molly has experience working with children and adolescents between the ages of 8 and 17, as well as adults. Molly has experience working with individuals with developmental and intellectual disabilities and enjoys providing support to the individual who has a developmental and/or intellectual disability as well as the individuals, families, caregivers, and teams that directly support individuals within this population. Molly also enjoys working with children, adolescents, young adults/college students, and adults.
Molly accesses several therapy modalities but most enjoys Systems Therapy, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Narrative Therapy, is knowledgeable in Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT), Internal Family Systems (IFS), and enjoys meditation, grounding, and mindfulness skills.
Molly is dedicated to providing a safe and comfortable therapeutic environment and fostering a safe and meaningful therapeutic relationship with her clients, which she believes is at the heart of healing.
Molly is an LGBTQIA2s+ affirming and supportive therapist.
