Training and Experience

Monique’s educational background includes a Bachelor's Degree in Forensic Chemistry from Andrews University and a Master of Science in Nursing Education.
Monique is passionate about her career in psychiatric nursing, and recognizes the importance of compassion, empathy, and therapeutic relationships in the psychiatric setting. Central to her practice is a commitment to patient education and comprehension. Monique has over five years of nursing experience working with clients with depression, anxiety, PTSD, Bipolar Disorder, psychosis, and behavioral disorders.
"I follow a holistic approach when providing support to my clientele. I consider how the physical, emotional, social, and spiritual aspects of a person impact their mental health. If one realm is out of balance, then everything else will be affected. I believe that a life with "perfect balance" is a myth. However, when we are cognizant of things that affect us and learn to bend with the wind, we create the life that lies within our deepest hopes and imaginations. My treatment modality consists of holistic treatment plans that include therapy, healthy lifestyle practices, medication management, and ultimately-patient preferences. We work together to create a life you love, so you can love the life you live."
