About Monica

It takes a lot of courage and strength to go through personal and emotional challenges and to cope day-to-day. It also takes a lot of courage to arrive one day at the brave decision to explore the possibility of seeking professional assistance with some of those challenges. In taking this moment to explore the options that are available to you, you are taking a powerful step in acknowledging that change is possible and that “I am the captain of my soul”, in need of some guidance while navigating the rough waters that life presents to us sometimes. 


My goal as a therapist is to assist individuals and couples in achieving a greater sense of wellbeing, fulfillment and satisfaction in their lives. We each deserve to live our best life. What this means is unique to each person and changes over time. In navigating the perceived gap between one’s current circumstances and one’s ideal future life, there lies an incredible opportunity for personal growth and self-compassion. 


I seek to support you by illuminating your resilience, your capabilities and life’s possibilities and compassionately guide you along more useful and empowering pathways to what you see as your best life. I bring substantial life experience to the work that I do and an inner strength and wisdom that accompanies having experienced several major personal, family and health challenges. Through empathy and compassion, we will explore alternative ways of thinking, reacting, interacting and coping in your daily life.

Wishing you much peace, clarity and compassion on your journey!
