04 about Monica

Picture of Monica


I’m a Licensed Clinical Social Worker Supervisor with over 10 years of experience working with children, adolescents and families.  As a former educator and school counselor, I saw first-hand how mental health affects our children’s learning. I strongly believe that our children cannot learn well if they do not feel well emotionally. With the many obstacles our children and adolescents encounter daily, please give me the opportunity to provide a safe space to hear your child’s story. 


I utilize evidence-based and developmentally appropriate modalities when working with children and adolescents.  I believe in the power of the therapeutic relationship to inspire changes we would like to see.  I work to develop a feeling of trust, acceptance, safety and confidentiality in every session in hope to empower our adolescents to find their inner peace. 


Therapy is a collaborative partnership. It is important to me that you find a therapist that you connect with. I offer a free initial 15-minute consultation so you can determine if I am a good fit. Please inquire for more information.
