Molly Martin, LISW (she/her)
Molly Martin graduated from the University of Northern Iowa in 2008 with a Master’s degree in Social Work. She is a Licensed Independent Social Worker through the state of Iowa.
Molly approaches therapy with a focus on the mind-body connection, bringing awareness to the connections between mental health and physical health, and using both the body and the mind in the process of healing.
Molly’s training and experience is rooted in trauma-informed care. She is certified in Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR), an evidence-based model that is effective and efficient in creating changes in thoughts, emotions, and physical sensations. She uses this model to treat anxiety, depression, PTSD, phobias, and relationship challenges in adults. Molly has additional training in using sensory-based approaches to treat complex traumatic stress, as well as training in the Collaborative Problem-Solving Model (CPS), which focuses on using communication to aid in development of skills related to emotional regulation and social interactions.
Molly also has a special interest in maternal mental health and has participated in additional trainings and consultation to support the unique needs, challenges, and ongoing adjustments that women experience throughout the perinatal period – from conception through pregnancy, birth, and postpartum. Molly incorporates EMDR into her work with women to address infertility, loss, traumatic birth experiences, and NICU stays.
In addition to individual therapy, Molly is available to provide individual and group supervision to therapists pursuing independent licensure. Molly is also available for public speaking on topics related to trauma-informed care, trauma-informed intervention, and Collaborative-Problem Solving.
