You are here, and I believe I can help you--that is the first step, reaching out. My name is Monique C. Foster, and I am a Licensed Professional Counselor who worked in counseling, coaching, teaching and consulting for over 15 years. It gives me great pleasure to plant seeds of hope in other people's lives. My counseling experience ranges from pediatric to adolescence, young adult to mid-life, and older to aging adults. I have a wide range of counseling and coaching experiences from educational institutions, substance recovery, and psychiatric hospitals. Besides counseling, I also was a college professor in Human Services who taught others studying to become a counselor.
I am a down-to-earth counseling professional who is versatile, willing, and ready to meet my clients right where they are--dealing with their unique issues. I could write more information about me, but you will gain a first-hand phone call or video chat. I believe in building a therapeutic alliance with my clients.

These quotes represent just a few of the many positive reviews that we have received for Monique Foster. We don't pay anyone to provide their review and they are all made voluntarily. Some people's experience receiving therapy with BetterHelp might be different.
Monique is so spot on with her understanding and being able to show me what I am feeling and why. She's able to gracefully steer me back on track when I am distracted. She has great strategies and solutions to my problems that I am excited to try! She is so warm and caring and makes it easy to open to her. Lately, I come frazzled and stressed but I always leave much calmer and with a sense of hope that things can turn around. I look forward to the journey with her.

Monique is very professional, but most importantly, she is compassionate. She isn’t judgmental and she makes sure to be thorough and clear. I feel safe and comfortable with her.
