Client Testimonials


“I had the pleasure of getting to work with Monique face-to-face. At that time, I started individual therapy and the level of sincerity, communication and support was so stellar, my wife and I decided to start seeing Monique both individually and as a couple. We have seen tremendous gains in how we talk and share our feelings and how to approach obstacles. We have also gained a greater perspective on gratitude and doing check-ins to solve issues before they become large scale. We were unsure what to expect when Monique transitioned to using an online HIPAA compliant platform for our sessions. We didn't want to lose the foundation we had with such a motivating and genuine therapist. All of our concerns were totally unfounded! Monique's warmth and support comes through just as clearly as if you were sitting in her office. I have recommended video conference therapy to friends and family because it makes it more convenient, no parking the car, no missing the bus, no hassles! Nothing is lost over video because Monique is one of the most compassionate and real therapists. She has helped us navigate our life challenges with warmth and a smile.” D.W.


“I wish I could put into words how much you have changed my life but I simply can't. I just need you to know how amazing you are at what you do. Your love for your field and your clients shows so deeply and is felt intensely. I honestly don't know what I would have done without you. I knew from the first session I met you that you would be the one to guide me to recovery.” L.M.
