About Dr. Mones

I have been a therapist, teacher, author, researcher and clinical supervisor for over three decades. I am trained in all of the main models of therapy and take pride in listening very carefully in order to structure a treatment that is tailor-made for each person. Each client will be able to judge the level of understanding, compassion and expertise that they are receiving and we move forward with giving each other feedback so as to make sure that our work together is satisfactory and meeting agreed upon goals.
