Molly Murison is a Registered Psychotherapist with a Masters degree in Counselling Psychology from the University of Ottawa. Molly spent years working with the University of Ottawa Counselling Service, providing support to young adults and adults with a wide range of mental health concerns. She specializes in the treatment of low self-esteem, depression, anxiety, major life transitions, interpersonal relationship concerns, as well as loss of meaning and motivation. In addition, she is trained and experienced in working with LGBTQ+ populations. She has over five years of clinical experience, training, and employment with the University of Ottawa and Serenity Renewal for Families.
Molly’s approach to therapy begins with getting an understanding of each person as an individual and their needs, wants and hopes around the process of therapy. She feels that the heart of meaningful work is connecting with clients from a place of empathy, non-judgment, and compassion while providing an integrative approach tailored to each client. She works from a client-centred perspective and believes wholeheartedly that clients are the experts on themselves, working to engage a sense of autonomy and cultivate a sense of self in the therapeutic process. Molly uses evidence-based Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) to work with clients to identify patterns of thinking and behaving that are no longer serving, while addressing and processing emotional concerns as they arise. She views her role as creating a safe and comfortable space to facilitate actions, changes or goals determined collaboratively with each client.
