Molly Richter, LMFT
MA Ed, MA MFT
In my work with couples, families, children and individuals of all ages, I take a collaborative approach, honoring clients as the experts in their own lives. I come from the perspective that even the most confounding behaviors—our own or others—make perfect sense, if we understand what needs they are intended to serve. Together, we can figure out how to change patterns that are not working for you, and discover how you can better meet your needs and reach your goals.
I enjoy working with individuals and families on the many issues that arise and shift endlessly during the course of the developmental life span, from infancy through launching and navigating relationships between parents and grown children.
I have a passion for working with individuals and couples who want to strengthen their relationships and are looking to restore or achieve greater trust, connection and closeness.

As a marriage and family therapist, I am grounded in a wide range of theories to understand human development, individual processes, relationships, and family and other system dynamics. I draw especially from the following theoretical and therapeutic models in my work:
Communications/Humanistic Family Therapy Approach
Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT) for couples
Discernment Counseling - for couples considering ending their relationship
The Gottman Method for couples
Mindfulness & Buddhist Psychology
