As a therapist, I stress the importance of holistic wellness. I see each person as a whole and strive to assist my clients in setting goals to gain not only mental and emotional well being, but also to feel good physically and build a healthy lifestyle that will continue to support their whole health. I also feel that therapy should be inviting, productive and even fun! My greatest pleasure is watching my clients grow by building coping skills, self-esteem, and self-love. I have an extensive background in Addictions and Trauma; and also in Depression, Anxiety and Panic Disorders, and Adjustment Disorders.

Monica, he attentive, available and flexible. She is able to connect, reframe and share in a way that allows me to grow. I highly recommend Monica!

Patient, non-judgmental, funny but appropriate and professional. Good energy and very transparent and reassuring. I don’t know where I’d be without her guidance this past year. We have a lot of work left to do but she’s never rushed me or made comments about my mental health that weren’t true. The world needs more therapists like Monica.

I feel so lucky that I got matched with Monica as my therapist. She's so kind and thoughtful. She always validates my feelings and gives me tools to manage anxiety and helps me grow as a person.

Thank you for your selflessness, passion and your patience . what you do for me (and I'm sure many others) is a huge gift! Thank you for being a soft cushion to lean on when times are so so tough and painful. Thank you for your teachings, tools and coping skills you have given me. Each session I learn something new and it helps me level up in emotional security and happiness. :)

Monica is incredibly patient and seems to know exactly how to move me through trauma therapy in a way that makes me feel comfortable at the end of a session. I’m very grateful for the work she does.

Written on Feb 17, 2022 after therapy with Monica for 5 months on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, relationship issues, intimacy-related issues, self esteem, and compassion fatigue

Monica is incredible. I came to her at a very low point in my life, feeling like I was in a hole I would never climb out of. Through many months and phone calls, messages, and voice sessions, I can tell you that I'm on the other end of this, having learned coping skills and ways to manage my anxiety. I can see the world as beautiful again, and I did so without the need for medication. She has helped me grow so much as a person and has made SUCH a positive impact in my life. I give my absolute highest regards to her.

Monica made a joke about something I’d already told her was painful. She does not do her homework. She does her own formula no matter what you tell her you need work on and it’s really disappointing.
