Monique Bellefleur is a Licensed Mental Health Counselor in Framingham, MA who specializes in eating disorders, body image, depression, anxiety, and life transitions. She sees adolescents ages 13 and up in addition to adults across the lifespan. Her practice includes all genders as well as families.
Monique comes from a humanistic perspective that utilizes a number of different treatment modalities, including Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT), and Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT). Her approach is rooted in strengths-based therapy that helps clients develop more self-compassion and acceptance of who they are and what makes them unique. She also works with her clients to become more grounded and in tune with both their minds and bodies by utilizing different mindfulness practices. She takes a team-oriented approach and frequently works with a team of nutritionists and primary care providers to ensure all of her client’s needs are being met.
Monique believes that everyone deserves to realize their fullest potential and live the life they deserve. Before entering private practice full-time, she worked for three years at the Multi-Service Eating Disorders Association (MEDA) where she conducted eating disorder assessments, lead groups (including one on binge eating), and connected individuals to higher levels of care. She also has experience educating communities on creating body positive spaces and is a certified Body Project leader. She received her EdM and BA from Boston University.
