Meet Molly Gorzelsky
Making the step to find a therapist and attend therapy can be daunting. There can be so much anxiety in finding the right therapist for you and your needs. Let me tell you a little bit about myself so that we can see if we are a good fit! I strive to create a welcoming, empathetic, and accepting environment to all my clients. My goal is for you to feel like you can be open and honest without fear of being judged, so that we may process your issues safely. One of the biggest factors in determining a successful outcome of therapy is a positive therapeutic relationship with your therapist. That is why I embody empathy, understanding, and unconditional acceptance in my work as a counselor so that we may have a positive, collaborative relationship. That’s why my primary focus is building a healthy relationship with my clients while introducing therapeutic interventions based on each individual’s needs.
I take all of the unique challenges of each person who comes to see me into consideration. It is one of my firmest beliefs that as a counselor it is my responsibility to recognize that the social expectations and systemic issues my clients face are unique and individual to them and their experience. It is my goal to create a counseling environment that is inclusive of people from all backgrounds and life situations to help all my clients feel heard, comforted, and understood. My counseling style stems from feminist theories and interventions. Therefore, I like to advocate for my clients’ systemic struggles in not only my professional life, but also my personal life.
Robert Frost said, “The only way out is through.” In other words, I am here to walk with my clients through their grief, depression, anxiety, or whatever it may be, by fully embracing and exploring the healing journey together.
Who I help?
I have experience working with many different clients from many different backgrounds. I began counseling in a community agency for adults with depression, anxiety, and personality disorders.
I also have experience working with adults with intellectual disabilities, providing psychoeducation, teaching coping skills, and providing behavioral interventions to them and their caregivers. Lastly, I have experience working with adults with substance use disorders and the relationship and behavioral issues associated with addiction.
What can You Expect?
Counseling with me is a very collaborative and integrative approach. As mentioned, I take each unique client’s needs and experiences into consideration when determining which therapeutic approach to use. I use person-centered therapy to develop a trusting therapeutic relationship and use some elements of cognitive behavior therapy (CBT), solution focused therapy, and the exploration of relationships and attachments. I like open and honest communication about what you are or are not getting out of therapy so that we can address your needs and make sure we are meeting your own expectations.
I am educated and informed on culturally competent counseling. That means that regardless of our cultural, social, racial, or ethnic differences, I work towards consistently creating an inclusive environment for clients of all backgrounds.
