About Me

Hello,

My name is Monique Harris, MA, LPC, LCDC. I am a licensed professional counselor in the state of Texas. I have 5 years experience serving children, adolescents, families, and veterans through individual or group therapy who are dealing with issues that affect their mental health and well-being. More specifically, addressing a variety of mental health issues such as depression, anxiety, post-traumatic stress, substance abuse, and personality disorders.

My counseling philosophy includes Rational Emotive Behavior and Choice Reality Therapy, placing emphasis on reshaping core beliefs in those individuals experiencing a variety of mental health conditions, thereby empowering them to live full, satisfying lives free from unnecessary psychological distress. Also, introducing the concept of choice and functioning in the here and now (reality), helping them understand that they have a choice and the power to change, adjust or enhance whatever it is that they want to alter about themselves, their situation or circumstances.

My counseling style is compassionate, empathic, non-judgemental, and genuine.

My goal is to empower individuals to live an emotional resilient, relentless, renewed, and restored lifestyle.

I am looking forward to working with you!

Honestly Monique Harris is one of the best therapists I've ever encountered. Her unique approach to situational problems stands out among the rest. She has changed my life in a way that I will never forget nor do I want to. That being said going through therapy it's an all sugar and rainbows but she helped me out so much and give me an understanding and tools that I needed to succeed. I wish you all best Monique!!!

I have worked with Monique for a few months. I was a bit skeptical when I first signed up for online counseling, but it turns out this is one of the best things I have done for myself. I feel like I am making progress with Monique, and I haven’t been able to say that to the same extent for counselors I have worked with in the past. Monique is experienced and knowledgeable. She holds me accountable and gently calls me out when I need that. I’m looking forward to continuing to work with Monique and healing and improving.

So let's talk about my first experience with Ms. Monique... She was brilliant! I loved how intuitive she was, how easy it was for her to pick up on language usage in just a small conversation with one another, and even how non-judgmental she was with not only her body language but spirit as well. I look forward to the sessions to come and highly recommend this beautiful soul to help you with your personal, private, and most well kept traumas as well.
