Born and raised in Southern Illinois, Monique made the move to St. Louis in 2016. Monique is a Licensed Professional Counselor in Missouri and Illinois. After graduating from SIUE, Monique provided therapy services, case management, and community support to adults with severe mental illness while working for a non-profit organization. Monique transitioned within that agency to provide therapy services and community support to children with incarcerated parents. Eventually moving to a private practice, she provided mandated therapy to individuals with specific legal offenses. In addition to that role, Monique provided services to individuals linked with DCFS and other contracting agencies. Monique believes in utilizing a trauma-informed evidence based approach when assisting her clients. It was through these professional and personal experiences, Monique ultimately pursued her desire to provide holistic care to marginalized individuals and communities. ACD aligned with Monique’s professional and personal beliefs. She fundamentally believes in fighting against systemic oppression against people of color and those living in poverty. Monique became the Social Services Case Manager in January of 2022 and looks forward to applying her skills and adopting new ones through ACD!
