Professional Student Member: Canadian Counselling and Psychotheraphy Association
Community Intake Counsellor
Molly is currently completing a Master of Science in Counselling Psychology at the University of Calgary. Molly completed her graduate practicum placement at the University of Calgary’s Wellness Centre, where she counselled undergraduate and graduate students experiencing concerns such as anxiety, depression, and relationship difficulties. Prior to this, Molly obtained a Bachelor of Arts in Psychology (with Honours) from Mount Allison University in Sackville, New Brunswick.
As a competitive athlete for many years, health was an integral part of Molly’s life. As a varsity soccer player and psychology major during her undergraduate degree, Molly’s interest in health expanded to include mental health, specifically in the area of eating disorders. Consequently, Molly examined the role of peers in young women’s body concerns for her undergraduate thesis. For her current Master’s thesis, Molly is exploring the various eating- and weight-related discourses evident at eating disorder conferences and obesity conferences.
Born and raised on the east coast, Molly has worked with children, adolescents, and their families at the Centre for Pediatric Pain Research and the Autism Research Centre at the IWK Health Centre (children’s hospital) in Halifax, Nova Scotia.
Molly’s desire to work with girls and young women experiencing disordered eating, anxiety, depression, and/or self-harm attracted her to Juno House. As the Community Intake Counsellor, Molly provides phone consultation to assess the needs of potential clients and recommends appropriate counselling services in the community. She may also provide short-term coping tools to help cope with the presenting mental health issue, and to provide a bridge to counselling services. Molly is excited to be working with the Juno House team to help enrich the lives of adolescent girls, young women, and their families.
