About Me

Hi, my name is Monica. First, let me say that it takes a certain type of bravery to ask for help from anyone, let alone a stranger. It is different than the bravery it takes to protect our country or our cities, different than the bravery it takes to walk into a room full of people, and even different than what it takes to perform on stage or on an athletic field. So please take a moment to acknowledge this and be proud of yourself!
I am a Licensed Professional Clinical Counselor in the state of Ohio and a Licensed Mental Health Counselor in the state of Florida, where I recently moved. I have worked in the mental health field for 21 years in some capacity, including community mental health, forensic assessment, and school counseling. What I find most gratifying is that "light bulb" moment when the person in front of me realizes and understands their worth, their strength, or that sense of safety. I work with the individual to help them see past the personal obstacles that brought them to me in the first place and be able to find the happiness or feel relief they seek. I listen, I accept, and I coach you into a better state of mental balance. While I am trained in various types of therapy, I tailor my technique to the person I'm interacting with. I place most of my focus on our therapeutic relationship, which is the key to our success. I recently have found a passion for helping those courageous individuals in first responder fields. I have training in Critical Incident Stress Management, as well as in Emotional Freedom Technique (Tapping) and EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing). I work with those living with anxiety, grief, life changes, stress, or whatever else might interfere with you being the person you want to be.
So pull up a "couch" (or your favorite chair or happy place, because with BetterHelp, you can do this wherever you feel most comfortable) and let's get started. I am ready to listen and do what I can to help.

I've been working with Monica for a year now and have learned and changed in so many ways. I am happy with the service and the convenience. She is incredible.

Written by S.K. on Jun 29, 2022 after therapy with Monica for 2 months on issues concerning relationship issues, family conflicts, self esteem, coaching, and compassion fatigue

Monica has been wonderful! She is professional and knowledgeable, but mostly she is compassionate. Even when I “mess up” she is there to encourage me. She’s quick to respond to messages and has had so many insightful things to say that I’m learning how to navigate things on my own and process things in a more productive way. She’s amazing!

Written by C.R. on Jun 07, 2022 after therapy with Monica for 1 month on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, relationship issues, family conflicts, trauma and abuse, grief, intimacy-related issues, eating disorders, sleeping disorders, compassion fatigue, and adhd

Monica has been an immense help to me in the last month. She has been helping me so much with my trauma and life. She gives me great homework and makes me really think. I can’t express how thankful I am to be working with her to help my mental health.

Written by M.E. on May 26, 2022 after therapy with Monica for 2 weeks on issues concerning stress, anxiety, and relationship issues

I really feel like Monic listens. She asks all the right questions to help understand her patients. I reached out for help after a very difficult time in my life where I felt heartbroken, emotionally distraught and broken. I didn’t think I could go on in my marriage and didn’t know how to build up my self worth. She has been outstanding in her advice and support. I feel like I’m stronger than I ever was and have a deep understanding on why I’m feeling the way I’m feeling and how I can overcome the pain and anxiety I was feeling.
Monica is kind and supportive and has sound knowledge in her field.

Good fit

Written by A.N. on May 17, 2022 after therapy with Monica for 6 days on issues concerning stress, anxiety, self esteem, and coaching

She’s a natural. Yet methodological and knows what she’s doing. Easy to talk to and that’s important. I don’t feel boxed by her.

Written by N.I. on Feb 15, 2022 after therapy with Monica for 3 months on issues concerning stress, anxiety, family conflicts, intimacy-related issues, self esteem, coaching, and adhd

Monica has been so kind, caring, and helpful throughout my betterhelp journey with her. I feel comfortable sharing anything and everything with her, and she always has insightful feedback and strategies for improving the situations presented. She is fun to talk to, the half hour always flies by. I would recommend Monica to anyone looking for a stable source of practical advice each week, a cheerleader in all of life’s endeavors, and someone to talk things through with when times are tough

Written by M.I. on Feb 07, 2022 after therapy with Monica for 9 months on issues concerning stress, anxiety, grief, career difficulties, coaching, compassion fatigue, and adhd

Monica is a sensitive, sweet and skilled therapist. She made me feel safe enough to open up and explore Betterhelp for the first time. It was a good experience all around.

Written by S.O. on Jan 17, 2022 after therapy with Monica for 5 months on issues concerning stress, anxiety

Monica is incredibly professional, thoughtful, kind, insightful and patient. She is attentive and thorough and is always willing to meet me where I am in my journey. I value her as a professional and as a human being. Couldn't recommend her more!

Written by N.I. on Nov 09, 2021 after therapy with Monica for 6 months on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, relationship issues, family conflicts, trauma and abuse, intimacy-related issues, self esteem, and coping with life changes

Monica has been a saving grace to me. She helped me navigate my feelings and thoughts through a very tough, pivotal point in my life by being there through chat and video calls on a consistent basis. I could reach out at any hour with any feeling and I knew she would reach out to me in a timely manner with insight and the correct tools to help level me out when my anxiety became too much. I truly don’t believe I would’ve come out of that point and now on the right path if it wasn’t with her help. She truly cares about what you are saying and how you are feeling and makes you feel like you’re talking to a friend. I’d recommend her services to any of my friends and family.

Monica is incredible - highly recommend! She helped me through an insanely transitional time, it would have been so difficult without her. She gives you real tactile ways of coping in ‘real life’ outside your sessions, and they’re super helpful.

Written by B.R. on May 21, 2021 after therapy with Monica for 4 weeks on issues concerning coping with life changes

Monica is very easy to talk to and provides helpful advice. This is my first time in counseling and I couldn't be happier. I feel very lucky that she was selected as my counselor.

Written by R.I. on May 06, 2021 after therapy with Monica for 2 weeks on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, relationship issues, family conflicts, trauma and abuse, sleeping disorders, career difficulties, coping with life changes, and coaching

Monica is a great counselor, not only would she listen but also will intervene with the right questions and advice. She can connect with the patients very quickly and made me feel safe and that I can trust her since day one! I fully recommend her to anyone that wants a fully dedicated counselor.

Written by I.M. on May 03, 2021 after therapy with Monica for 2 weeks on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, grief, self esteem, and anger management

Monica has taught me different techniques to deal with my situation. Feels like I'm talking to a friend over the video chat.

Work with me!
