Molly Wilcox Yahr is a psychotherapist who believes each person has a story to tell, a journey they are on, and supporting them through that is a large step into feeling peace in their lives. Molly’s intention as a therapist is to hold a safe and supportive space for clients to fully explore sensitive issues and find solutions to struggles.
Molly is warm, supportive, and encouraging in her counseling style. She values honesty and humor while exuding unconditional positive regard towards her clients.
Molly specializes in working with adolescents, adults and couples from a wide array of backgrounds who are facing anxiety, depression, eating disorders, life transitions, perfectionism, communication concerns, and relationship issues.
She empowers her clients to feel confident to face challenges head-on and create positive change. Molly believes therapy can not only help you through immediate crises, but it can also be a preventative measure to learn proactive tools and skills for the future.
Finding the right therapist can be challenging and Molly will support you in that process—if you’re curious about what working together could look like, schedule a complimentary 15-minute consultation to get started.
Molly whole-heartedly believes in the healing power of therapy and wants to support her clients through that journey.
Molly completed her undergraduate education at Marquette University with concentrations in Social Welfare & Justice, Sociology, Gender & Sexuality Studies, and Family Studies.
