RUTLAND — Molly Leach joined Community Health Center Rutland Region’s Allen Pond provider team in July, offering mental health services to individuals and families.
“My approach is very systemic. I like to step back and give a perspective to all the different systems that could be impacting a person’s mental health. I try and pay attention to cultural factors, family background and social influences,” Leach said.
While her professional experience has focused on gender and sexuality, specifically with the LGBTQ population, Leach also has helped couples and families. Fluent in Spanish, she has worked with Hispanic families and in Spanish-speaking communities. A Glens Falls native, Leach holds master’s degrees in social work and education in human sexuality from Widener University in Chester, Pennsylvania, and interned at the Mazzoni Center, Philadelphia’s LGBTQ health and well-being center.
