Hello, I am a clinically trained Marriage and Family Therapist. I work on-line only as a tele-health specialist. I have worked in-person with private practice and in a College Counseling Center. Populations served is usually 12-65. I work with many different issues from anxiety and depression to trauma and grief. My approach is with compassion and empathy through empowerment techniques, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Mindfulness, and Brief Approaches. I am trained in trauma. My specialties are anxiety, PTSD, family/relational issues, and adjustment. I love the job mostly because I get to meet such amazing people. I look forward to helping others find their own path. My approach to therapy is client centered: you are the author of your story. I draw on multiple treatment modalities to guide clients in identifying strengths and developing treatment plans that accomplish their goals including Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), clients explore relationships through thoughts, feelings, and behaviors to help them discover dysfunctional and negative thought patterns leading to self-destructive behaviors and beliefs. I work to support clients through developing skills: mindfulness, distress tolerance, interpersonal effectiveness, and emotion regulation with the goal of moving clients towards a healthier and more joyful life experience.
Outside work: I love to surround myself with family and friends. I enjoy exercising, mindfulness and taking walks. I find peace in nature and love to hike.

I worked with Monique for close to 2 years to help with anxiety and depression associated with romantic relationships. She was very helpful and I made a lot of progress. When I first started therapy I was not able to ask someone on a date. Now I am regularly dating and almost all of the feat of rejection that I had is now gone. Monique helped me set small achievable goals that were easy for me to complete. This took away a lot of the anxiety I had because it made it easy to see my own progress. I feel like Monique really cares about me and wanted to help.
