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
