About me

I am a family and marriage counselor licensed in Indiana with over 10 years of experience working as a psychocounselor and life coach. I have worked with clients with a wide range of concerns including depression, anxiety, relationship issues, parenting problems, career challenges, OCD and ADHD. I also helped many people who have experienced physical trauma or emotional abuse.

My counseling style is warm and interactive. I believe in treating anyone with respect, sensitivity, and compassion, and I don't believe in stigmatizing labels. My approach combines cognitive-behavioral, humanistic, psychodynamic and rational-emotive counseling. I will tailor our dialog and treatment plan to meet your unique and specific needs.

It takes courage to seek for a more fulfilling and happier life and to take the first steps towards a change. If you are ready to take that step I am here to support and empower you.

I look forward to working with you!

I’ve been taking to Monica for a few weeks and she’s great. She’s flexible and seems to be very understanding and provides some nice recourses to work on outside of live sessions.

We’re still getting an assessment of my history and what I’m looking for, and my reasons for therapy. But, so far, I really feel she’s hearing what I’m saying and understanding what it is that I’m looking for.

Monica is absolutely wonderful. After trying three other councilors without success, I finally met Monica. She was able to work with me and actually help me cope with my stress and anxiety. I just wish that I'd met her sooner!
