One thing that sets Monica apart from other therapists is her emphasis on educating her clients on the impact that the mind-body connection has on their overall health. She believes in empowering her clients to look at health from a lifestyle perspective by incorporating a variety of tools that help each individual as opposed to a “magic pill.”  The personal time and attention Monica gives is the distinctive quality that creates a safe, therapeutic experience for each of her clients.

A native Texan and mom to three young adults, Monica and her husband currently live in Dallas. She is known by her friends, family and clients for her joyful spirit and caring personality.
