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 improve their quality of life by learning how to be their authentic selves through building and practicing: 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. Monica's sessions are collaborative; and she uses interactive exercises when appropriate to help clients gain a better understanding of how practicing decision making skills impacts the quality of their daily experience.

As a trained yoga teacher and founder of an active tennis group, Monica frequently incorporates mindset skills and mindfulness-based techniques to teach her clients exercises they can utilize for self-care and increased awareness. 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.
