Welcome to MBL Therapy. My name is Molly Benoit-Leach. It is a privilege to do the work that I do. To be a witness for other people and their individual journeys is an absolute honour.
I am a registered social worker and registered yoga teacher. I offer virtual psychotherapy, yoga, and mindfulness practices. I have 9+ years of working with these methods and believe in the transformative potential they hold because of how they have changed my life and how I have witnessed they change others' lives as well.
I specialize in working with adolescents, families, and individuals coping with anxiety, chronic stress, addictions, trauma, and relationships. Depending on the needs of the person I work with, I may use components of Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, Dialectical Behavioural Therapy, Mindfulness based therapy, psychosomatic therapy, and elements of spirituality. I believe in working with the mind-body in a holistic way as they are undeniably interconnected and have great wisdom for us to behold when we can find ourselves still enough to listen. I always tailor my approach to meet a person where they are at.
Each person has their own inherit worth. I believe in each person's dignity and lovability.
“Owning our story can be hard but not nearly as difficult as spending our lives running from it. Embracing our vulnerabilities is risky but not nearly as dangerous as giving up on love and belonging and joy—the experiences that make us the most vulnerable. Only when we are brave enough to explore the darkness will we discover the infinite power of our light.”
