Dr. Mollie Rothseid

, PhD, ASW


Dr. Mollie is a warm-hearted psychotherapist and gerontologist who is dedicated to helping clients find strength and live their very best lives. With a deep-rooted desire to make a difference, she first studied psychology in college, which ignited her lifelong passion. Driven by this passion, she pursued a PhD in gerontology, focusing on breaking stereotypes around aging and improving the lives of older adults. After her PhD journey, Dr. Mollie worked at a non-profit, where she led a special program for those with early-stage dementia. This experience taught her how to stand by people during tough times and discover their hidden strengths. It was from here that her journey as a therapist began, as she felt a calling to help others continue to uncover their inner resilience and positivity.

Dr. Mollie has touched lives across the spectrum of age and experience. She’s been a guiding light for kids in elementary schools facing hardships and adults dealing with a variety of life’s challenges. Her therapeutic approach celebrates the uniqueness of each client, as she believes that therapy is about finding what works best for you. She uses a variety of different evidence-based modalities and interventions to ensure clients of all diverse backgrounds and experiences are honored, with an emphasis on whole person therapy.

Many may not know that: Dr. Mollie is originally from Pennsylvania. She has been to 13 national parks and is excited to visit more. She enjoys hiking and walking with her dog.
