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 from Florida State University. Over time, I have found that my work with people who are adjusting to life after big life changes or trauma to be both effective and rewarding, as I engage in ongoing continuing education in trauma informed mental health care.

My therapeutic approach combines Trauma Informed Cognitive Behavioral Therapy and Brief Solution Focused Therapy. In addition, I am an Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) Therapist. EMDR is an extensively researched, effective psychotherapy method proven to help people recover from trauma and other distressing life experiences, including PTSD, anxiety, depression, and panic disorders. EMDR has recently been explored in in a global and pop culture context.

Written by G.A. on Dec 20, 2021 after therapy with Monica for 2 months on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, family conflicts, trauma and abuse, grief, intimacy-related issues, self esteem, anger management, career difficulties, and compassion fatigue

Monica has provided me a much needed reprieve from the expansive depths of my mind.

She takes time and energy to explain deeper when I do not understand or comprehend the tools she gives me.

She is patient and passionate, she celebrates my victories with me and checks on me during my lowest moments.

In our few months of our journey together, I've become more confident in the steps I'm taking, despite being terrified.

I'm glad I took the leap of faith to knowing myself, because she gives me space to see and love myself no matter my perception.
Turns out, there's a lot of love within the tangles.

I still have a little while to go, but I am so blessed to borrow her light in this tunnel; so that I may nurture my own.
