Accepting new patients:
Hi, my name is Monique! I'm a Licensed Mental Health Counselor, a military spouse and a mom of one. I was born in California but grew up in Germany and have lived in Missouri and now Hawaii for the past two years. I have experience working with children, adolescents, adults and families. My passion is helping individuals navigate challenging situations and transitions as well as their associated emotions. Whether you're a stay-at-home mom dealing with the stressors of parenting or you are an individual feeling burnt out at work and are struggling to maintain work-life balance; I would like to offer you a safe place to process your thoughts and feelings as well as help you learn new ways of coping.
Clinically, I have worked with individuals with various stressors from dealing with life transitions, domestic violence, traumatic experiences, relationship issues, job stress to postpartum distress, depression, anxiety, autism, borderline personality disorder, and post-traumatic stress disorder. I enjoy pulling from various treatment modalities such as person-centered approaches, Cognitive Behavior Therapy (CBT), Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT), Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), solution-focused approaches and mindfulness techniques. I would feel honored to help you take the first step towards change and creating a life worth living.
