About Me

Hi there! I am Monica, a Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC) and Educator in Georgia. I have been a LPC for 14+ years and an Educator for over 20 years. I am a 3rd generation graduate of Alabama A&M University, where I received my undergraduate degree in Special Education in 1999. I received both my master’s and specialist degrees in Counseling in 2002. While I have helped a wide range of people in a wide range of environments, I specialize in working with people who are struggling to manage their emotions across school, home and work environments. I have found that my work with parents, college students and recent graduates is both effective and rewarding.

My therapeutic approach combines Cognitive Behavioral Therapy and Brief Solution Focused Therapy. I believe that our thoughts guide our behavior. Working together, we can challenge problematic thought patterns while measuring your therapeutic progress by setting attainable short term goals. We will then use your victories as momentum for you to continue to commit to your therapeutic journey.

If anything that you have read about me and my work sounds comforting in any way, then we may be a good fit for each other. Reach out to me now to discuss how I can support you on your journey to living the life that you both want and deserve.
