Hello my name is Monica Youssef, I am a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist.
I attended University of California Riverside for undergraduate degree in psychology and I received my graduate degree from Cal Poly Pomona with a Masters in Science in Psychology. I started my career in a non-profit where I worked primarily with populations of low SES providing individual, family, children, adolescents and adults services, as well as supervising interns.
I chose this profession because I want to empower others and support people through adversity. As a mental heath professionals I am here to inspire resilience and break down the stigma that surrounds therapy. I am a firm believer in the healing power of human connection. We are all needing to be heard, seen, loved, and appreciated. I'll step in with you and help guide the way to move past the obstacles that are getting in the way of your peace.
We'll address challenges related to relationships, life transitions, career, self acceptance, culture, spirituality, and identity. My approach is a combination of interpersonal and cognitive behavioral therapy, which helps you develop a deeper understanding of your thoughts, behaviors and supplies you with the skills to overcome challenges. I am also certified in IPT, TFCBT, SS, DBT.
I invite you to take the first step towards your healing. Contact me to schedule a complimentary consultation. I'd be honored to help you reshape your life story to create more balance, meaning, and fulfillment.
