Background & Approach

 

Monique completed a Bachelor of Arts, majoring in Psychology, at the University of Sydney (1999) and a Graduate Diploma in Science (Psychology) (2000).

In her 20-year career, she has worked in the not-for-profit sector with children, adolescents and adults, assisting people with a broad range of clinical presentations. She has extensive experience working in youth mental health and in the disability sector. She has also worked in an outpatient psychiatric service, employee assistance programs and in critical incident response.

Monique offers treatment for people of all ages in areas of anxiety disorders, depressive disorders, stress, grief and loss, adjustment, trauma-related disorders, personality disorders, emotional regulation issues, suicidality, self-harm, eating disorders, substance-related disorders, gender-related issues and neurodevelopmental disorders (including autism and ADHD). With special interests and particular experience in youth mental health, grief and loss, adjustment and disability, Monique is passionate about providing the best possible care to people.

In assisting people to work on their therapeutic goals, Monique uses a range of evidence-based therapeutic approaches in her practice. Monique works from a person-centred perspective, treating every person as unique and individualises the treatment approach accordingly. In her practice, she draws upon Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (CBT), Interpersonal Therapy, trauma-informed approaches, mindfulness-based approaches, Dialectical Behaviour Therapy (DBT) and Solution Focused Brief Therapy. She also supports people by utilising a strengths-based approach, which acknowledges that every individual has their own set of strengths that can assist them when navigating emotional difficulties and life’s challenges.

 

Monique places great importance on the therapeutic relationship and has an approach which is warm, engaging and collaborative. She aims to create a space where people feel comfortable and safe to share what is of concern to them. She is highly motivated to help people work towards their best possible mental health and wellbeing.
