My name is Monica Jerez and I am a dedicated therapist based in Houston. I am bilingual therapist in English and Spanish. I love working with children and adults who need help with stress management, anxiety, depression, self-esteem, life transitions and more. As your therapist, I want to help you navigate life’s challenges by providing hope, support and guidance. I want to help you achieve your goals!
I use a variety of advance therapeutic approaches such as Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), Dialectal Behavior Therapy (DBT) and Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) therapy to make sure that your needs are met and that therapy is a safe place for you to share, learn and grow.
I invite you to take this step on a new journey because seeing a therapist makes you strong, not weak. If we go to a doctor to seek professional help when we break an arm or feel sick; then we should also go to a therapist to seek professional help when we have issues with our mood, thoughts and behavior. It's okay to not be okay. Let's create the life you want to live!
"You don't need to have it all figured out to move forward. Just take the next step and I will walk alongside of you."
- Monica Jerez, MA, LPC
Our advanced therapy is designed specifically for each person. An individualized treatment plan is created and followed.
Is your child having difficulty in school or home? Therapy can help!
Therapy is very important for a child's emotional, psychological, and social well-being. It is the best way for a child to talk and work out their problems. Going to therapy will help them cope better, communicate better and do better. I will meet with parents/guardians after every 3 therapy sessions to discuss progress and continue skills at home.
Are you having difficulty living the life you want to live? Therapy can help!
Therapy is an important process that helps you overcome problems and brings you closer to the person you want to be. In therapy, you will learn valuable psychological skills to help you create and achieve your current and future goals. I understand that asking for help can be tough and I congratulate you for taking this step. You can be certain that I will offer a safe space for you to share, learn and grow.
Are you unable to come to therapy in-person? Online therapy can help! I am offering online therapy for children and adults so now you can get the help you need from the comfort of your own home without sacrificing quality of care. I will provide a safe and interactive online platform for us to connect.
