My therapy time with Monique was shorter than I’d have liked, but incredibly insightful.

She is open minded, kind, knowledgeable, and very down to earth. I felt very comfortable discussing my marital, familial, and past trauma issues; Monique is extremely easy to talk with.
We had a great rapport, and although I had to stop temporarily for financial reasons, I hope she and I will reconnect when I’m able to come back.
She had a kind, friendly disposition, and brought levity yo some of my heavier sessions.

Written by L.O. on Nov 23, 2021 after therapy with Monique for 1 month on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, relationship issues, sleeping disorders, anger management, and career difficulties

I started therapy because I felt overwhelmed with sadness on a daily basis. I was not happy in 2 areas of my life and I felt that I needed to start healing / understanding what was going on with myself and then I could better tackle those 2 areas. I was in counseling for 8 weeks and I will say that it helps to talk to someone that you do not know. I appreciated the check ins in between appointments, those were definitely helpful to keep on track between sessions.
