A place for you to land: Counseling that focuses on relationships and learning about yourself, why you do the things you do, and how to cope.
My life is great, but I just feel exhausted or angry all the time – shouldn’t I feel fine?! I’m surviving, but white-knuckling it. I’m in a pattern of behavior I don’t like, but I don’t know how to stop it. I’m tired of pretending to have it all together, but I can’t let people know I’m struggling. Sometimes I’m afraid of where my brain goes when I’m having a hard time.
There’s this thing that happened; I’ve never talked about it before, but I think I need to. I went through hard things growing up, and I don’t know how it’s influencing me now. I don’t want to recreate my childhood with my kids or family. My teen and I are always fighting and I don’t know how to stop it.
I’m craving to understand why I’m stuck. I’m looking for tangible tools to help make changes. I want to feel more in control of my actions, thoughts, or emotions.
HOW COULD THERAPY HELP?
Your time in individual or family therapy offers you a space to show up, ask these hard questions, and get curious about answering them.
The relationship we build will be non-judgmental and open for discussing anything.
Sessions provide time to bring awareness to unhelpful patterns that keep showing up in your life. We will “dig into” your past memories and patterns. We will also learn skills to deal with things out of our control (coping skills, mindfulness skills, boundary setting). Sometimes our work will create “ah-ha” moments. Sometimes it means sitting together in difficult memories or emotions to move through them instead of staying stuck.
I aim at making our time together safe, and engaging – I want you to feel empowered to grow and change. My ultimate hope is for you to know yourself better, so you can gain insight into your emotions, patterns of behaviors, and strengths in order to live the life you imagine.
Molly Mayberry, LCSW-S
A Licensed Clinical Social Worker with ten years experience, Molly’s top priority is establishing a therapeutic relationship with each client so they can show up with all their identities and begin to heal past or current hurts.
With training in crisis interventions and trauma-informed care, Molly incorporates a lot of learning and skill-building during each counseling session, helping clients practice mindful breathing and explore effective communication strategies, stress management tools, grounding skills for overwhelming anxiety, and distress tolerance skills for out-of-control moments.
The therapy I provide is relationship-based, systems-focused, and trauma-informed.
That’s a lot of “therapy language” to say:
Building trust with you is the first priority in our work together. We practice working through things together, so you feel more prepared to practice out in the “real world.”
You don’t live in a bubble, so I am interested in the relationships and environment you grew up in and live in now.
We often have experiences that stick with us, so I use my experience working with trauma to better inform and help you heal from childhood, relationship, or recent traumas. I utilize a lot of neurobiology in this work so we understand together why your brain and nervous system may be responding differently than how you think it “should.”

Vulnerability sounds like truth and feels like courage. Truth and courage aren’t always comfortable, but they’re never weakness.
