Monique Harris

(M.Ed., LCSW)

About Me

"HEALING, TRANSFORMATION and ultimately MANIFESTATION!!!" is my motto. I want every individual I work with to define their power in the world by overcoming and expanding from any barriers to PERSONAL GROWTH! I work with adults on depressive issues, anxiety, past trauma, post-traumatic stress, low self-confidence, work-related issues, relationship issues and parenting issues.
As a Reiki Master and a Hypnotherapist, I use Holistic techniques to assist in finding the balance between the MIND, BODY and SPIRIT! With a focus on a Cognitive Behavioral Approach and a Strengths-Based approach, I emphasize the importance of understanding how behavioral outcomes in one's life have a strong connection to the ongoing thoughts/perceptions that an individual has.
I use journaling, positive visualization, mindfulness and other approaches to emphasize the importance of individuals understanding that any difficulties experienced in life will ultimately promote and foster growth in oneself. I invite you to courageously answer the call to make incredible transformations and manifestations in your life!

Written by A.N. on May 05, 2020 after counseling with Monique for 2 weeks on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, relationship issues, family conflicts, self esteem, and coping with life changes

Monique is amazing. She is so enthusiastic about what she does. In a way, she flows our conversation so its not so formal which makes me feel really comfortable. And with her Reiki background and my spiritual one, when we think of solutions or a thought process, it matches and makes since to me. We also share many laughs, which I for some reason I thought was something that didn't happen in therapy sessions.
