Molly loves to create a counseling space in which clients feel safe and can confidently build a trusting relationship with the counselor. Molly believes that counseling should be collaborative so that clients feel heard as well as guided. She is a Christian with a faith that impacts every area of her life but loves to work with those who don’t share her worldview. Her goal is to help individuals walk in more freedom, better understand themselves, and become more grounded in the lens through which they see the world.
Molly is happily married to Chris Hatley, who attends Reformed Theological Seminary in pursuit of a Masters in Divinity. Molly loves watching movies, playing games, shopping, dancing and having the most fun at all times!
Molly’s favorite quote comes from the end of a poem by Levi the Poet titled “Joy Seekers.” It says: “His resurrection is all we have. His resurrection is all we need. Jesus, if you’re not alive, call us pitied, call it off, call it empty. But if the tomb is empty, call us family, call us finished, say that our seeking can cease. Joy seekers, you have found him. You have been found by him. You are free.”
