About Me

HEY, I’M M O N I C A. I’m not your average cardigan wearing therapist (although I do own a few). I’m a straight shooter and I’ll do so much more than just sit across from you and nod. I help you dive heart first into the thoughts and feelings that are weighing you down. Overthinking, self doubt and feeling detached don’t have to be your norm. I am here to help you get curious about your stuck points and overcome the negative stories you have about yourself. I get it, for the most part, things are going well and to everyone else, it looks like you have it all together. But when you’re really honest with yourself, there’s shit you've been avoiding talking about your whole life. I get it. Trauma therapy is the work we spend our whole lives avoiding, but you don’t have to go it alone. If you live in California or Texas, I’m here to help you become a more aligned partner, parent, friend and well, human. Barely holding it all together isn’t sustainable, and you don’t have to keep white knuckling it. Let’s work on this together and help you get your “inner badass" back.
