Monica’s compassion, intelligence & understanding has made a huge difference in our family. Thank you, Monica.
Monica is a very loving individual who has been very empathetic towards us and our circumstances. I can say I’ve never felt judged or unheard. She really tries to understand both of our point of views and remains neutral. I appreciate her professionalism and kindness.
Monica helped me and my spouse to a great deal. Very patient and nice person. Asked the right questions and made us feel very comfortable. Highly recommended.
Monica is very professional, patient and understanding. We only had 3 sessions with her but I already see a positive shift in our relationship with my husband.
She is the perfect mediator for couples counseling, understands the struggle and frustrations of both individuals. Does not take side, and asks really good and important questions in our sessions that get to the nuts a bolts of our discord.
