Individual & Couples Therapy, Self-Care & Provider Groups, Marriage Support Groups


to Strength Redefyned, where your needs are the priority. There's strength in vulnerability and giving yourself grace.

I am passionate about serving black women leaders, military individuals (& couples), fellow providers, and other high achieving professional black women. Often times, driven and highly motivated black professional women experience depression, anxiety, & high levels of stress that can present as feeling anxious, over-tired, nervous, difficulty concentrating, low motivation, challenges with sleep, as well as other commonly overlooked symptoms. 


The demands of your career and personal life can create fatigue, whether physical and/or emotional.

My Approach
Education & Background

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.

Marriage & Couples Counseling

Couples counseling is an opportunity to explore where you are, how you arrived there and how you can get to where you want to be.

It takes strength to give yourself permission to struggle at times. It takes courage and wisdom to operate in the strength of vulnerability.
