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.

I look forward to talking with Monique. It’s more like talking to a friend than anything else. I don’t feel self conscious telling her the feelings and thoughts that I’m having. She gives me real world things to try not things that are unrealistic. She understands what I’m going through. I definitely recommend her!

Monique is great! She has a very calm demeanor that makes you feel safe to open up about past traumas and unspoken thoughts/feelings. No matter how deep the conversation is though we always end the session with laughter and smiles.

I have a tendency to hold feelings and thoughts in and Monique helps me feel safe with sharing those with her and others.

I've only been with Monique for a few months, but I definitely enjoy working with her. She points out things that I don't see and calls me on some of the dumb stuff I do. I've got some really great suggestions from her about what to do with my various illnesses that are helping a lot.
