Monica is a Godsend. Very laid back, very compassionate, and has a way of soothing a person's anxiety with her voice alone. I know that she is able to relate to a lot of what I talk about which makes me feel even more validated. She has a lot of knowledge with CBT and most importantly, I just feel as though Monica truly cares

Monica is one of the most genuine therapists I've ever had! She is so patient, supportive, and really seems to listen and care when I discuss what's going on or ramble. I am extremely grateful to have Monica as a therapist because she made me realize that my feelings and experiences are valid, which I had not believed before.

I was reluctant to start therapy again and wasn't sure that virtual therapy was the right choice for me. Betterhelp gave me a chance to try and find the right therapist for me and to give therapy a try on my terms and within my budget. I got so lucky in finding Monica. She is the perfect fit and simply gets me and my challenges. She helps me while in my session and when I have moments where I just need to be heard. I am looking forward to doing even more work with Monica helping me along the way.
