About me

I am a licensed clinical social worker and licensed addiction counselor in the state of Montana with over 11 years of experience. As a social work major, I have a strong background working with several diverse communities. I am trained to look both at the individual and the large environment that affects the individual. Through my employment at Montana State Hospital, Montana State Prison, the Lewis and Clark County Jail, and other outpatient therapeutic environments I have had a wealth of opportunities to further my understanding and knowledge into both mental illness and substance abuse disorders.
My responsibilities have included providing therapeutic intervention services to both the criminal and civil populations. My experience, education, and knowledge provide me with a unique understanding of mental illness and effective treatment modalities. I have familiarity working with the severely mentally ill, families, and groups. I have provided therapeutic services to clients from various ages and backgrounds. I am well versed at working with those whom have experienced trauma, suffer from depression, anxiety, ADHD, or a mood regulation disorder.
I understand how important the therapeutic relationship and would like to work with you as we take this journey to wellness together. Though therapy can be difficult and overwhelming at times I want you to know that I am invested in your road to recovery. Thank you for your consideration. I look forward to speaking with you.

Absolutely the best person to help me with my situation. Monique has been an extremely strong listener and keeps me accountable with goals I set for myself. I'm really glad I was matched with her first because I can't see anyone else helping me as much as she has.

Monique is so helpful, her experience helped identify my issue and get a new perspective. I am so grateful! This is something i would have spent hours trying to figure out. She gets right to the source of the problem so i can see my unlimited options how to approach in a positive constructive manner.
