What was Dr. Monique's path to becoming a therapist?

Dr. Monique originally wanted to be a lawyer but life happened and she experienced some trauma, had a child, helped find someone to guide her through her trauma, and figured that after being on the “other side of the couch,” all she wanted was to create a safe space where clients can come and not feel judged. She's worked in a plethora of settings, from correctional facilities to hospitals and everything in between. She feels like she has heard it all before, so nothing comes as a surprise to her. As a result, she's learned to create a safe space for others to be their authentic selves so they can take off their “masks” and just be them - whatever that is on whatever day you happen to be sitting across from her.

What should someone know about working with Dr. Monique?

Dr. Monique works from a philosophy of honesty, transparency, and authenticity. She holds clients accountable for their actions and supports them through their journeys of self-discovery by using what she refers to as, "compassionate confrontation." 

She only accepts insurance coverage from Modern Health, Headspace (through them directly), and Grow Therapy (through them directly). If you have a different insurance provider, she can provide you with a superbill to submit for potential out-of-network coverage. 

She does have the capacity to work on a lien basis with your attorney for non-custody cases. E-mail her directly at for this service. 

What does Dr. Monique specialize in?

Dr. Monique is a highly trained and experienced therapist who specializes in immigration evaluations, high-conflict custody and couple cases, therapeutic support for adult sex workers (including FSSWers), and sex trafficking survivors. She has extensive training and certifications in trauma, PTSD, anxiety, depression, substance use, parenting, and life transitions. With her expertise and compassionate approach, Dr. Monique is dedicated to helping her clients overcome their challenges and achieve goals.

Does Dr. Monique see kids?

Yes! Dr. Monique sees children aged 5 years and up.  She may see them younger depending on the issue and if it is court-ordered or not. 

What does Dr. Monique do to continue learning and building competencies as a provider?

Dr. Monique maintained her education by attending webinars, workshops, and in-person training events. She enjoyed learning about various topics, particularly those that enhanced her skill set. She sought collaboration with other providers worldwide to learn best practices, embrace new skills, and expand her network.
