I am Monique Sledd, a licensed professional clinical counselor in Minnesota with over six years of clinical experience helping families, couples, adolescents, and adults from a variety of backgrounds navigate stressors, trauma, and life's challenges. I have worked with clients with a wide range of concerns including depression, anxiety, sexual identity, racial and ethnic identity, and gender identity issues, ADHD relationship issues, legal status concerns, and problematic substance use and dependence. I have helped many people who have experienced physical trauma, mental and/or emotional abuse in their lifespan.
My approach to therapy is to meet my client where they are at along their lifelong journey towards contentment, success, and understanding their own intersectionality. Many of us bring different "selves" with us to each interaction in life, whether that be our gender, race/ethnicity, mental health diagnosis, or attachment style. My goal is to help individuals understand how all of these parts of ourselves interact and how we can best approach a life worth living while navigating daily obstacles and life's transitions. I am trained in Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT), Motivational Interviewing techniques, and provide both person-centered and trauma-focused treatment. My counseling style is interactive, compassionate, and collaborative with an appropriate use of humor, when applicable. We will work alongside one another as a team throughout your treatment with you leading as the expert on your life, needs, and wants the entire way.
Taking the step to reach out for help is the most important step one can take. If you are looking for support, empathy, and understanding, I would love to take this next big step forward in working with one another!

We have had five sessions with Monique Sledd. We quickly felt comfortable and safe with her and non-judged. She is very thoughtful in her approaches and addresses our needs perfectly. Highly recommended!
