Molly was trained in the scientist-practitioner model of clinical psychology, emerging from graduate school and postdoctoral work with the skills for providing psychotherapy and other clinical services, and for teaching and conducting research. For 15 years, she was a professor of psychology at Saint Michael’s College. Although she left her tenured academic post in 2018 in order to expand her clinical practice, her identity as an educator, scholar, researcher, and supervisor of psychotherapists in training remains a strong influence on her clinical work. Currently, in addition to her psychotherapy practice she serves as a scientific and clinical consultant for several projects and companies.
