I am a believer that people should be seen and heard! I also believe that people are far more resilient than what we give them credit for. I particularly enjoy working with those who are truly ready for change.
I use a unique and effective form of psychodynamic therapy to treat trauma, anxiety, depression and other difficulties. This involves techniques that differ from traditional therapy. With this said, I also value other evidenced based practices such as Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (CBT), EMDR, Mindfulness and Compassion Focused Therapy.
In sessions, we work collaboratively. I create a space that is free of judgment, where human experiences and emotions can be shared in an uncensored way. I do not use a cookie cutter approach and always tailor the process based on your needs.
Monique is a creative and compassionate social worker who aims to serve her clients through a judgment-free approach to counseling. She first works with her clients to understand their concerns and then supports them in developing and pursuing a plan that promotes their healing and growth. She aims to help clients to break unhealthy patterns, to develop greater coping skills, and to lead more fulfilling and fruitful lives. Her work with clients addresses challenges such as anxiety, coping skills, depression, domestic abuse, life transitions, peer relationships, relationship issues, self-esteem, sexual abuse and stress. Monique’s goal is always to help clients consider their experiences as building blocks rather than roadblocks.
Monique earned a Bachelor of Social Work (BSW) and a Master of Social Work (MSW) from McMaster University. She recognizes the need for counseling sessions to be customized to fit the unique needs, interests, and backgrounds of each client and she strives to create a space that will facilitate change for each client in ways that are suitable for them.
In her free time, Monique enjoys spending time outdoors and listening to live music.
