I am a licensed, ordained Minister, Evangelist, worship leader and board member in the Christian faith! I have been ministering for over 30 years in various capacities. I believe that we have to be healthy in all domains of life and achieve balance. Counseling is a necessary component of achieving balanced living and staying true to maintaining peace. Phillipians 4:7-8 "And the peace of God, which passes all understanding shall keep your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus. Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever thins are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report, if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things,"
I am a National Certified Counselor (NCC), a Professional Counselor in the states of North Carolina and South Carolina. I am a Licensed Clinical Mental Health Counselor Supervisor in North Carolina as well as a Licensed Clinical Addictions Counselor Associate, (LCAS-a) and Board Certified, Telemental Health counselor (BC-TMH). I have experience working with adults, adolescents, and children both in individual and group settings. I also have experience working with couples, families and in various settings such as schools. Some clinical issues I have the most experience in include depression, anxiety, and stress management.
A focus in my treatment is establishing a therapeutic relationship with the person first and foremost as I believe having a good connection helps facilitate effective counseling and provides the best outcomes. In therapy, I am supportive, compassionate, and am present with individuals both in times of struggle as well as times of achievement and progress. I make sure to meet each individual where they are at and actively listen to and respect where they would like to see themselves in the future with the help of therapy and skill development.
Working collaboratively with individuals on their treatment goals is a priority throughout treatment and I encourage open communication regarding what therapeutic techniques and approaches work best for the person, to ensure the best therapeutic experience.
My counseling style combines strength-based, cognitive-behavioral, and solution-focused approaches to help individuals achieve their therapeutic goals. Identifying one's strengths and coping skills that can be used to help work through various issues is an important part of my therapy approach.
I truly value each individual therapeutic relationship and fully empathize with the different emotions a client may experience throughout treatment. I believe that each individual has the ability to overcome struggles but that sometimes-having additional support in the form of therapy can help one to better identify and recognize the coping skills and strengths they already possess.
You have taken the first step in creating a healthier, happier you and I would be honored to help you in that journey!

Monique is a wonderful therapist who listens intently, makes you feel heard, gives you simple easily applicable advice, and has the ability to make a screen therapy session seem as comfortable as in-person. She helped me develop skills to increase my quality of life. I am so thankful we were placed together.
