Professional statement

Monica White is a Licensed Mental Health Counselor who offers teletherapy to clients living in NY or MA and specializes in working with college/graduate students and young professionals in these areas: anxiety, stress management, career counseling, relationships, communication/social skills, decision-making, and self-esteem/self-awareness. She also does coaching-based work with clients using Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) techniques.

She really enjoys helping individuals increase their clarity and quality of life by working with them to build their core sense of self; and by developing mindset, motivation, identity development, and interpersonal skills. Many of her clients are high functioning but do not know how to approach the world of mental health; and are working through specific challenges such as creating daily self-care habits, working through academic/career dynamics, and navigating dating/relationship levels of growth.

Monica's sessions are collaborative; and she uses interactive "mind-mapping" on white boards with graphs, markers, and drawings to help clients visualize and gain a better understanding of how decision making flow impacts the quality of their daily experience; and whole life-span development from childhood to older age.

As a trained yoga teacher, golfer, and founder of an active tennis group - Monica integrates foundational mindset skills along with mindfulness-based techniques to help her clients work on skills for self-care, self-esteem, boundaries, personal growth/development, career, and relationships. She also helps her clients find ways to have control over the joy, happiness, and gratitude they encounter on a day-to-day basis. Monica is energetic and warm; and she strives to create a space where clients can learn how to utilize their voice to live the life they deserve.
