Mollie Pierce, M.A., LCPC, NCC

Eating Disorder Program Clinical Lead and Therapist

After earning a degree in clinical mental health counseling at Gonzaga University and spending nearly a decade in Spokane, Washington, Mollie Pierce returned to her hometown of Reno where she joined Thrive Wellness. Navigating her own mental health challenges throughout her teenage years inspired her to dedicate her career to helping others process their pain while nurturing their growth and fostering their healing. She believes mental health is equally as essential as physical health and is committed to providing a safe space for those struggling to feel seen, heard, and supported in ways they may not experience elsewhere.

As a therapist at Thrive Wellness Reno, Mollie specializes in treating those recovering from eating disorders and related mental health conditions. When working with patients, Mollie applies a narrative therapy approach and incorporates modalities such as Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) and Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) among others. She is especially passionate about supporting and empowering members of the LGBTQ+ community and promoting equality, kindness, and compassion for all.
