Meet Monica, a mental health therapist whose rich cross-cultural upbringing fuels her passion for creating an inclusive and culturally-sensitive space. As a Licensed Professional Counselor, Monica brings a wealth of experience derived from diverse therapeutic contexts, having supported individuals and couples of all ages, backgrounds, and relationship styles and dynamics. Her profound appreciation for the intricate interplay between mental health and the unique experiences of 1.5 and 2nd generation immigrants underpins her work.
Monica has supported clients through a range of life challenges, from trauma recovery to navigating anxiety, depression, and major life transitions. She also fosters an environment for self-discovery and personal growth.
Monica’s expertise lies in understanding cross-cultural influences, and she approaches therapy with a holistic, culturally-sensitive perspective. She tailors her approach by integrating various therapeutic modalities, including Psychodynamic Psychotherapy, Client-Centered Therapy, Somatic Experiencing, and Internal Family Systems, to meet each client where they are.
“When we meet, expect a warm and inviting atmosphere. I’m genuinely interested in your experiences, and I’ll join you on this therapeutic journey with empathy and understanding. Together, we’ll explore your identities, lived experiences, and your own path toward personal growth.”
