To this day, I say that Monique is the best thing to have come out of my divorce. She had to learn real quick what was happening because I was in the thick of it when I first reached out. With Monique, I believe I have what many of my friends are jealous of - that perfect client to therapist relationship.
I’m grateful that a platform like betterhelp drew in someone as incredible as Monique and I get to reap the benefits. I recommend betterhelp to my friends repeatedly due to massive help it’s had in my life and mental health.

From the first encounter one can tell that she entered her profession with a respect and pride for the impact she can have on others. I appreciate how engaging she is - our conversation felt very natural from the start!
