MONIK LOPEZ, OWNER, MS, LMHC

Although I am a professional therapist, my intention is to create a down-to-earth, real relationship with you. I practice transparency with my clients to help build trust and open communication. We're all in this life together and my struggles are just as real as yours.  My theory of practice is primarily psychodynamic, which focuses on the unconscious and learning how it is showing up in our lives today. My intention is to help you create more self awareness around how our past may influence our present, and help you to reconnect to your true self. 

I'm a Licensed Mental Health Counselor and certified fitness coach. I 'm trained in both EMDR Therapy and Gottman Method Couples Therapy.  For 12 years I have been helping people in the community meet their lifestyle goals, stay active and become healthier physically and mentally. My hope is that together, we can find an approach that works well for you to help you strengthen your relationship with self and others,  and live a happier, more productive life!

My approach

A little about me:  I'm a lover of nature and travel. Being outdoors provides such a sense of peace and happiness for me. Whenever I feel irritated, stressed or sad, you can usually find me on (or under) the water, mountain biking, in yoga practice or even some Olympic weightlifting in my driveway. What a mix, right?! I grew up in the punk rock scene right here in South Florida, so my style of therapy tends to be a little less conventional and stems from those roots that still live within who I became as an adult. "Stay True" is something I really believe in, because it's when we start living our lives based on other peoples needs that we suffer the most.

Something I've learned over the years is that depression, anxiety and other symptoms can teach us a lot about who we are on a deeper soul level. We might be a good fit if you are wanting to better understand yourself and your relationship patterns, struggle with perfectionism, people pleasing or setting boundaries with others, or finding time to engage in your personal interests and hobbies.
