Monique is a great listener, accomodating and knowledgeable on a lot of different topics i have brought to our sessions. She is easy to talk to and we seem to share a lot of the same beliefs and views

Written by R.E. on Jun 20, 2022 after therapy with Monique for 2 weeks on issues concerning stress, anxiety, family conflicts, and self esteem

I really like how she listens. I know I can take time to talk about my issues but she provides talking points without interrupting, and I really appreciate that. I've seen counselors in the past and I feel like, compared to them, speaking to Monique, I didn't have to think about judgment. I appreciate the positive reinforcement. God bless you, Monique.

Written by A.L. on May 30, 2022 after therapy with Monique for 2 months on issues concerning relationship issues, and self esteem

When I first met Monique I was in a terrible place.
I was dealing with a lot of past trauma that was destroying my relationship and personal self-esteem.
Monique helped me discover some good things about myself that helped me gain love for myself .
She taught me skills to deal with intense emotions and helped me identify some negative thought patterns that were causing me to do irrational things .
She helped me find myself again !
With the skills I learned from her, I was able to save my relationship and make it better!
She was there for me anytime I needed her.
I could message her questions anytime and she always got back to me .
Monique is more than a therapist, she was very kind and always very helpful.
I feel very grateful for all the skills I learned from her and I will always think of her first if I find myself needing a therapist in the future.
I would highly recommend Monique to anyone seeking help
She is an awesome person and I'm happy I met her
Thank you Monique, you get a 5 star

Monique is an attentive, intuitive, and patient listener. She created the space for me to share through my overwhelm and anxiety. Through her feedback and guidance, I was able to process my grief, release overwhelm and set new boundaries. I highly recommend Monique.

Monique is a great person and a wonderful therapist, she listens attentive and make sure you are heard. I've always left a session with her feeling more happy and confident in myself.

Written by K.A. on Apr 11, 2022 after therapy with Monique for 2 weeks on issues concerning stress, anxiety, depression, self esteem, adhd, and compassion fatigue

So far, Monique Goodson-Johnson has been very attentive and professional. I am still warming up to therapy and still feeling it out and trying to decide if I want to continue, but that is a personal choice and has nothing to do with her. I would feel completely comfortable continuing with her and even recommending her to others.

She's flexible, reliable and ready to help!

I had my first therapy session with Ms. Goodson-Johnson and she was wonderful. We touched on a broad range of issues, I didn’t feel rushed, she listened, and provided helpful feedback and guidance. I felt like it was a very cathartic session and ended feeling much lighter just after one session. Highly recommend. I look forward to our future sessions.

Work with me!
