When I started working with Monique, I had just come to terms with my trauma and had no direction or solid guidance on where to begin the healing process. There is a lack of trauma informed assistance out there and nothing felt right or helpful. Monique changed that. She helped me make sense out of what I was experiencing, she really helped me to understand my body and mind, and for the first time in my life I felt like I was understood and wasn’t alone. I am now able to listen to my body, understand when I am triggered, and extend myself compassion. I am blessed to have had my experience with her and I would recommend her to anyone who has Complex Trauma.
I started working with Monique after listening to her incredibly informative podcast for a couple of months. I have never met anyone so compassionate, warm and understanding than her. Monique provided me with regulating tools and coping techniques, to show up for myself, my relationships, and for my children. Getting past the generational trauma is a relay race, Monique has run together with me during this journey.
I started working with Monique after seeing many professionals and feeling unheard or understood. For the first time I had the compassionate witness that I needed my whole life. Monique helped me understand that the things I experienced as a child hadn’t been my fault. She helped me to have more self-compassion on my younger self. She also helped me to feel more free from the narrative that I deserved the things that had happened to me, or that I had imagined/exaggerated these things. Working with Monique, I felt fully supported. I felt like I had someone who understood my experience and was completely on my side. Thank you, Monique
I found Monique’s podcast and resonated with every guest she had on. She has a way of asking questions that I needed answers to. On a whim, I decided to look at her website, and I felt a strong urge to start working with her. Monique’s presence and knowledge was just what I needed. She gave me new perspectives that I hadn’t heard of despite my therapy and research. I felt safe and guided with her. I am very grateful for her and the work she is putting out there!
I felt stuck, broken. Feeling like I would always struggle with the events in my past brought on by others that I had no control over. I grew up feeling responsible for what happened. This feeling of being stuck and that I would always struggle with my past interfered with my relationships with my husband and adult children. Praise God, because He led me to Monique. I never heard that childhood trauma could result in my body making changes to help me through the mess I lived through as a child, adolescent and young adult. Monique has helped me learn to befriend my nervous system and given me the skills to communicate with it and calm the fear. She has been my compassionate witness and proved a safe space for my experiences. I no longer carry the burden of being stuck! I see myself as whole, a survivor, strong, and safe. I thank God that He designed my body to protect me and I thank Monique for sharing her life, knowledge and skill to help people like me understand why I think, feel, act and react the way I do. I now know how to communicate with that part of myself. I am forever thankful.
