Mary Katherine Lance, LMFT-A

I’m Mary Katherine Lance (she/her), and I am a therapist working with adults and adolescents at Modern Wellness Family Counseling. I enjoy helping individuals and couples find hope and empowerment so that they can navigate life changes in a more effective way. Change, although inevitable, often feels chaotic and overwhelming, so whether you need help navigating your religious deconstruction,** rebuilding after a life transition, or rediscovering your identity and strength, I’d love to be a part of your journey.

I believe that each person’s journey, experiences, and perspective are unique. Therapy isn’t about learning the “right” way to live, it’s about learning how to make more authentic decisions and create a life that feels more meaningful. My work with each client is individualized, but I approach all of my clients with warmth and acceptance and the feminist** belief that all people deserve wellness.

I am a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist Associate trained in individual therapy and couple therapy and various treatment approaches, including Acceptance and Commitment Therapy. I am LGBTQ+ affirming.

Mary Katherine is in network with Healthy Connections, Select Health Medicaid, Healthy Blue Medicaid, and Molina Medicaid. She also accepts cash pay.

** Language is complicated! Words have many meanings and interpretations based on who is saying them, how they’re being used, and who is hearing them. When I use the word “feminism” I’m referring to the belief that all people have inherent worth simply because they are human beings. I’m also referring to the belief that each person’s environment shapes the expectations they have for themself and for others. For example, a child who grows up in Greenville being taught to say “ma’am” and “sir” to the adults around them will become an adult who expects to hear “ma’am” and “sir” from the children around them. Someone who grew up in New York City and wasn’t taught to say “ma’am” and “sir” won’t expect to hear them. Additionally, when I use the term “religious deconstruction,” I am referring to the process of understanding how a person has made sense of the world, now makes sense of the world, and would like to make sense of the world – I am not referring to the destroying or dismantling of religion. It’s similar to how a person might retrace their steps after losing their keys until they finally find them and can move forward again.
