At Strength Redefyned, your needs are the priority. There's strength in vulnerability and giving yourself grace.
Often times, driven and highly motivated Black/brown professionals experience anxiety and high levels of stress that can present as feeling anxious, over-tired, nervous, difficulty concentrating, as well as other commonly overlooked symptoms.
The demands of your career and personal life can create fatigue, whether physical and/or emotional.
I am here to serve you

As a successful Black professional, I understand the challenges that come with being the one who is typically leading and helping others. I am passionate about working with Black professional women to identify and define their strengths and goals, as well as to “redefyne” the narrative of strength.
"I spent roughly 4 months doing counselling with Monique on issues such as anxiety, relationship issues and self esteem.
As someone who was new to counselling, I was very nervous about it. Monique always made me feel comfortable and was very understanding when I was talking about the issues I was facing. She helped me set goals and work towards them in a very supportive and constructive way, with great feedback and at a pace I was comfortable with. She is flexible and responsive. Very grateful to have had her support through a challenging time in my life.
