Pauline Moll, Intern Psychotherapist
My name is Pauline (she/her/hers). I practice on stolen Dakota land.
I am a pre-licensed Dance/Movement Therapist and pre-licensed Couple and Family Therapist. That means in our sessions, we can make art and move as well as talk! The mind and body are inextricably linked. We heal through both. I work with individuals, couples/intimate partner groups, families, and other people in relationship with each other, such as siblings or friends.
My lived social identities, my artistic life, and my experience in community organizing come together in my work as a therapist. When people tell me about their lives, I, first and foremost, listen deeply. As I listen, I notice personal strengths, key relationships, and systems of power that influence their current situation. I strive to continuously work (and live) from a trauma-informed perspective, an anti-oppressive lens, and a sense of cultural humility. Since I work from an embodied approach, I explicitly state that I hold the values of decolonization, anti-racism, accessibility, trans liberation, and fat liberation, and I continuously strive to practice these values.
I am set to graduate in May 2023 with my MA in Dance/Movement Therapy and Couple and Family Therapy from Antioch University New England. I have a BA in Theater from Northwestern University. I am working under the clinical supervision of Jennie Yngsdahl, MA, LP.
AREAS OF FOCUS
We might be a good therapeutic fit if you want to explore:
- your identity, who you are, and where you belong
- creative expression and having more fun
- reconnecting to your body and having a deep relat ionship with your body
- processing things without having to talk about them verbally
- how to move forward when you didn’t get everything you needed in childhood
- being kinder to yourself and feeling more self-worth
- how to meet your needs and your loved ones’ needs at the same time
- creating deeper intimacy/closeness in relationships
- intergenerational trauma and intergenerational resilience
- grief and/or ambiguous loss
- “work/life balance” or themes of “productivity”
- surviving within oppressive systems
- your strengths and your life path
In technical terms, our work together might pull from relational-cultural, narrative, psychodynamic, cognitive behavioral (CBT), dialectical behavioral (DBT), emotionally focused, Bowenian, and Gottman therapies, as well as attunement, movement expansion, attachment, role theory, and psychodrama.
I am able to accept several in-network insurance plans including UCare, Preferred One, Aetna, Health Partners, Blue Cross Blue Shield of MN, Cigna, and Anthem. I accept Medical Assistance (Medicaid) plans under those companies as well as straight Medical Assistance. At this time, I am unable to accept Beacon, Medica, Optum, United HealthCare insurance plans or Employee Assitance Plans (EAP’s). I recommend contacting your insurance company to confirm their coverage for therapy services. All services are billed under Jennie Yngsdahl, MA, LP who is my direct clinical supervisor.
I also accept direct out-of-pocket payment per session and flexible spending or HSA plans. A limited number of sliding fee slots are also available for low income clients. Please contact me to discuss the best option for you.

“Pauline is an amazing colleague and a dear friend. When we worked together on dance therapy groups for seniors, she was warm, empathetic, and creative. During our Dance/Movement Therapy and Couple and Family therapy training together, she was always insightful and inspiring. She brings authenticity and kindness with her presence, and I find her words to be validating as well as thought-provoking. In her work, Pauline centers social justice and affirms the clients’ identities. I highly recommend her if you are looking for a supportive psychotherapist!”
