Professional statement

Monique Bellefleur is a Licensed Mental Health Counselor in Framingham, MA who specializes in depression, anxiety, disordered eating, body image, and life transitions. She sees adults ages 18 and up. Her practice includes all genders.

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. When helping clients improve their relationship with food and body, she takes a Health at Every Size Approach.

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.


Message to clients

Thank you for taking the time to consider working with me and, more importantly, for taking the time to consider working on yourself. Whether we are going through a tough time or looking to grow, therapy can be an important support in our lives.
Over the past few years I have worked with and learned from clients with a diverse range of life experiences and through this work developed a specialty in treating eating disorders, negative body image, poor self-esteem, anxiety and depression. I believe that we all deserve self-compassion, self-care, and the chance to feel good about who we are and what we are doing in this world. I believe that full recovery from an eating disorder is possible and that everyone has the potential to learn how to accept themselves with all of their unique quirks and qualities in order to embrace a fuller, more joyful life.
Most importantly, I believe therapy is a space to be heard - to express our honest selves and learn to use our voice in a nonjudgmental space.
I hope you will consider working with me.
