Molly Johnson, MSFT, LAMFT Therapist
Relationships are both where our deepest wounds and our greatest healing take place. Rooting yourself in a foundation of a secure and constant relationship can help you face all that life brings. In the words of Henri Nouwen, "When we honestly ask ourselves which person in our lives mean the most to us, we often find that it is those who, instead of giving advice, solutions, or cures, have chosen rather to share our pain and touch our wounds with a warm and tender hand. The friend who can be silent with us in a moment of despair or confusion, who can stay with us in an hour of grief and bereavement, who can tolerate not knowing, not curing, not healing and face with us the reality of our powerlessness, that is a friend who cares.” When you invite me into that sacred space of healing, I am a helper. I sometimes offer insight, remind you of your values, help you plan for future goals, or share teachings from the research, but mostly I enter into your world with your eyes and help you piece it together so that it makes sense and you realize your worth and purpose. Through this work, you are able to embrace and become a person who can handle honesty and intimacy in authentic fulfilling relationships. My work with couples comes from a framework where we explore the emotional experiences and needs of both partners as the couple works towards deeper intimacy, including experiential and “turning towards” exercises.
I am licensed as a LAMFT in Arizona. I specialize in relational work, especially for singles and couples. Some of the most powerful relational transformation comes during a phase of life when you feel most alone. I love helping people who are in the dating world work through their past trauma so they make good choices that will help them be healthy and have healthy relationships in the future.
