About me

In Carl Jung’s famous words: “I am not what happened to me, I am what I choose to become.” My name is Monika K. Herrera, I am a licensed psychologist and I believe these are words to live by. In today’s world, it might seem impossible to feel ‘in control’ of our surroundings. From toxic workplaces to poor health of ourselves or those closest to us, coping with and controlling problems in what’s supposed to be modern society can feel hopeless. That is why I make it my everyday mission to put attention away from the uncontrollable external and instead focusing it inward, somewhere it will make a change. Make no mistake, while progress is rooted in the therapeutic art of conversation, sessions with me are based on methods and therapies PROVEN to make a long-lasting difference. If you are ready to take the next step forward or are looking for someone to have a conversation about what that step might be, schedule a consultation.
