Monica has been so helpful to me! In only a few sessions, she offered me excellent advice about how best to handle a wide range of personal and professional situations. She is the best therapist I have ever worked with - just so skilled, very nice, and fun to chat with.

Monica Hoyer is hands down the best therapist I’ve actually ever had. I’ve had many therapists & she really commits each session to listen and help me. She checks in and treats you like you’re a priority and it makes me feel like I actually matter instead of just venting to a friend and then going however long with whatever I’m feeling. I feel like there’s a sense of control with my issues and I’m finally becoming who I want to be.

Such a fun and lively person. She always reaches out to me if it's been a few days to make sure everything is good. I know I have really found a friend in her.
