Making the decision to come to therapy can often be difficult. I strive to create a comfortable, non-judgmental and supportive atmosphere to help foster change and overcome challenges. Utilizing a strength based, integrative approach, I draw from various modalities, including person centered, cognitive-behavioral and mindfulness, to best meet the needs of each individual client. By drawing on your personal strengths and building insight, my goal is to help you improve your quality of life and emotional well-being.
I have specialized training in Perinatal Mood Disorders (Postpartum Depression, Anxiety etc.), Perinatal loss & grief and working with clients who have experienced sexual trauma, PTSD and depression. Throughout my training I have worked in inpatient and outpatient settings providing individual, family and group therapy to children, teens and adults.
Other areas of specialty include: relationship issues/separation, self-esteem, stress, life changes/transitions, postpartum depression/anxiety and infant loss.

Absolutely fantastic person to talk to. Extremely understanding and very communicative to which she always wants to get to the bottom of my issues to bring a resolution. I Highly suggest Monica as anyone’s counselor!

Monica is a great listener and she’s super professional! She’s so respectful, caring, and kind. She will be honest and understanding with what you are going through and will be there for you.
I think Monica is an excellent counselor, I feel comfortable going to her with my thoughts and feelings. It feels really good to get it all out and she always has comforting words and solutions to help. I've been using some of her suggested methods and it does help. I believe I can maintain my anxiety if I keep working with Monica.
Kind, professional, and supportive. She has a terrific listening ear and sage advice. Looking forward to continuing our sessions.
Monica is great to work with - I appreciate her flexibility, candid responses, and her thoughtful questions that quickly focus in on the challenges we are discussing.
