Molly Gelinas (SHE/HER)
Professional Counselor Associate
I am a Professional Counselor Associate, an advocate and educator, individual and group counselor, and work with families, adults, and teens. I am currently pursuing a PhD in Counselor Education and Supervision.
I am a deeply empathetic person that holds a caring and intentional space for discovery and healing. I strive to build trust and develop understanding for the diversity and layers of challenges that individuals seek support around. My professional experience is in working with generational trauma, adverse childhood experiences, substance use, eating disorders, life transitions, traumatic brain injury and challenging family dynamics. I am often curious about developmental, environmental, cognitive, and family processes. I use a collaborative approach and am welcoming of all the emotions that we as humans are born with and bring multicultural sensitivity to my work.
I am client-centered and honor the authenticity of where individuals are and the energy they bring, in the present moment. I enjoy bringing Mindfulness, Strength-Based, Affirmative, Psychodynamic, and Existential modalities into sessions to ultimately support the process of self-discovery and self-actualization.
I received a Masters in Clinical Mental Health Counseling from Bushnell University, and BS in Psychology from Oregon State University. I am certified through the Mental Health and Addiction Certification Board of Oregon as a CADC II.
