About me

I am in my 21st year as a psychotherapist.

What to expect:
Respect and Support - Most people find my straightforward approach helpful and solution-focused.
Flexible scheduling- If you do not see your favorite time on my calendar, just reach out and let me know!
Timely responses
Expertise - I have seen the impossible happen in person after person - 20,000 client hours! I believe people can achieve incredible things despite impossible odds because I've been there when it happens.

Three questions I'm known to ask people in therapy:
1. If you had your financial life at 100% satisfaction, what would be left to do for you to be your ideal self?

2. Why? (no matter what people say, I tend to follow by asking, "why"?)

3. If when you awake in the morning, everything was changed for the better, what is the first thing you'd notice?

About 60% of my practice involves work with adult survivors of sexual trauma, addictions (drugs, alcohol, sex) and couples recovering from affairs. I also offer traditional general mental health counseling for depression, anxiety, and bipolar disorder, particularly post-hospitalization or adults who are noticing symptoms for the first time. Other services include pre-surgery psych evals and group therapy.

A few other notes about me
I authored a workbook for couples, Infidelity Recovery Workbook for Couples: Tools and Exercises to Rebuild Your Relationship that has ranked in the top 100 Dating Books on Amazon since it's release in 2021.

Monique has helped me work through several rough life changes. She is knowledgeable and truly ensures you feel safe while making progress.

Experienced. Resourceful. Thoughtful. Phenomenal listener. Compassionate challenger. Wise. Insightful therapist.

Those words do not fully capture the extent of gratitude for Dr. Thompson's life changing therapy. I am quite a different woman who is healthier in ways that I did not even know were possible, while still managing to laugh. Counseling with her has been the gift that keeps giving.

Dr. Thompson is compassionate thorough, and firm. She listens closely and provide useful tools and resources for reflection and action. I highly recommend her.

Very knowledgeable. Nothing surprises her. I’ve never felt judged. She remembers things that I forgot I told her. I look forward to our sessions.

Monique Thompson attentively listens to my concerns and offers doable and practical solutions to help me work through my issues. She is caring and approachable and very easy to talk to. She helps me think through my concerns and sometimes it ends up not being as bad as it seemed. I love the part at the end of each session when she asks what did you take away from today’s session. And I always learn something and feel better during our sessions. Monique is an excellent counselor and she teaches her clinical knowledge to help you better understand what is happening in your brain when there is depression and/or anxiety present. She is truly a God send for me.

She is a amazing therapist, I’ve connected with her and she helps me stop and think about life. She really does her job

Written on May 27, 2022 after therapy with Monique for 2 months on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, relationship issues, trauma and abuse, self esteem, and compassion fatigue

Monique is exactly what I'm looking for in a therapist. She is able to take my slew of jumbled thoughts and feelings and piece them together in a way that makes perfect sense to me. She offers me solutions without directly handing them to me, but rather opening the door to allow me to find the solution myself. She also is wonderful at communicating about how our individual sessions as well as our time together as a whole will be structured, which is extremely helpful as someone who is fairly new to therapy, and has anxiety around the unknown. I'm so happy I connected with Monique and I would highly recommend her to anyone

Written on Apr 11, 2022 after therapy with Monique for 2 weeks on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, self esteem, anger management, and coping with life changes

She's awesome and so helpful. I'm beyond grateful for her.

Written on Apr 02, 2022 after therapy with Monique for 1 week on issues concerning depression, relationship issues, trauma and abuse, anger management, bipolar disorder, and coaching

Monique is very proactive. She seems to want to find a solution and is willing to let you take the driving seat to figure that out. Her approach is educational and she is uplifting in her sessions. I enjoy working with her.

Work with me!
