Monica King

(LMSW, ACSW)

About Me

I offer an open, conversational, and professionally directed approach to individuals and couples seeking therapy for issues including career & work difficulties, depression, anxiety, family issues, as well as sexuality, broken relationships, support for lifestyle changes for clients with medical issues such as diabetes, heart disease and life transitions. The therapeutic relationship is useful to help you learn new ways of understanding yourself and others & forging relationship changes. Throughout our conversation, we will work to understand areas of conflict and difficulty in new ways allowing you to make clearer decisions with more confidence and grace. As a versatile clinician, I enjoy working with all people.

Whether it is Individual or relationship therapy, coaching services, addressing couple or family issues, Parenting consultation, or working with you on your own concerns and examining old beliefs and habits that have been holding you back ~ I welcome patients' stories and enjoy helping them find their own courage, core strengths and desires. As a psychotherapist doing therapy in Ann Arbor some 25+ years, it still is a privilege to witness a patient's process as they discover how to express their truest selves. I love this work and consider it a great gift to be invited to witness your work and to assist you in your process to create more health and happiness in your life.

Written by C.H. on Aug 19, 2019 after counseling with Monica for 2 weeks on issues concerning relationship issues, intimacy-related issues, and self esteem

Monica is seriously great. She is the best listener and you can tell that she cares. Her voice is so soothing and calming. I would absolutely recommend Monica as a counselor.

Written by T.R. on Jul 29, 2019 after counseling with Monica for 2 weeks on issues concerning addictions, relationship issues, family conflicts, eating disorders, and coping with life changes

Monica is a good listener. She also provides helpful resources. I was impressed by how she sent me resources between sessions. I did not expect that. I have already recommended her to other people.

Within just a few sessions with Monica, I was in a much better place emotionally, mentally, and had renewed hope. After a strong rift with my husband, I needed a compassionate ear that wasn't my friends or family. She listened, gave me good feedback and assigned helpful habits. So far everything she suggested gas been working really well. Thanks to her I've made great progress, and I'm excited to continue until I'm back to me.
I'm so glad and thankful to better help for not only providing therapy at a price I could afford, but having sessions from home, which has been important for me since all of this has made me paranoid about going out to seek help.
I know I have more work to do, but with Monica and better help I'm more hopeful now than I have been in about two years. That's priceless to me.

Monica is so understanding, listens so well, and is intuitive to what I’m trying to say when I can’t totally say it. She has encouraged me and given me good advice to deal with different situations.. pushing me to do better at a rate that I needed. She’s helped me change my life and my outlook in just a few weeks, and I really appreciate that.

I worked with her for only a short time; however, in that short time she did a good job, from what I saw. She was open, kind, and caring, as well as timely and flexible; I very much appreciated working with her.

Written by M.A. on Feb 12, 2018 after counseling with Monica for 2 weeks on issues concerning depression, relationship, parenting, and self esteem

I am not sure how BetterHelp managed to match me so well with Monica, but I couldn't be happier. I have passively searched for someone to talk to for 20 years, and have never made it past the first couple visits.
