Marla Monk


About Me


I have over 16 years of experience in the social work and mental health field. I also have experience working with the active duty military population and their families as well as veterans.

In 2013, I earned her MSW from the University of Southern California with a concentration in mental health and sub-concentration in military and veteran services. In 2011 I earned MA in Human Services with a specialization in marriage and families from Liberty University and in 2001 earned my B.A. in Criminology from the University of New Mexico.

I am experienced in working with those impacted by trauma, grief and loss and domestic violence as well as couples and families. I am trained in Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Trauma Focused CBT, Cognitive Processing Therapy and Motivational Interviewing. Additionally, Marla is trained in Gottman Method Couples Therapy.

I take on a collaborative approach when working with individuals and couples. I believe in partnering with couples to assist with reducing conflict, improving communication and finding ways to strengthen the relationship.

Marla is personable and real. She explains things in ways that make sense and are applicable to real-life scenarios. After just 2 sessions, our communication has improved tremendously and we have resolved ongoing pain points. We are very grateful for Marla.
