Bridget Mullen, MS, LGPC

Pregnancy and Adoption Counselor

 

Hello! I joined this team in 2018 as a Pregnancy and Adoption Support Counselor and I’ve thoroughly enjoyed working in this role since then. Before coming to Catholic Charities, I completed my Master’s in Clinical Psychology and worked with families in transitional housing, and with families and children, grades PreK through 8 as a school counselor. I’ve always been interested in listening to people’s stories and helping them find solutions to the challenges they face. In my work now I never cease to be amazed by the incredible courage and resilience my clients demonstrate in the face of overwhelming odds. I love watching my clients find their voice and engage their strengths and talents as they become empowered to make their own fully-informed choices and write their own stories. 

A typical day in my life at Catholic Charities involves me working from our Fairfax office on home studies for adoptive families, visiting adoptive families in their homes, connecting with other professionals in the community to promote pregnancy and adoption support and meeting in the office or the community with expectant parents. I feel so blest to be part of a team that is supportive and shares a common goal of transforming families. My co-workers and close friends typically describe me as loyal, cheerful, detail-oriented and calm under pressure.

Loves: Lord of the Rings, movie scores, my Catholic faith, coffee, any combination of peanut butter & chocolate, and home-improvement projects

Dislikes: Cloudy days, cold weather, peas and messy kitchen counters

Please reach out by phone or e-mail - I’d love to learn more about you and support you in your journey, wherever you’re at right now because “there’s some good in the world and it’s worth fighting for” (Sam Gamgee, The Lord of the Rings).
