As a couples and relationship counsellor/therapist, I work to provide couples and individuals with a safe, confidential space to talk, explore, learn and grow. I help them to understand their areas of difficulty and develop resources to cope and thrive.
I received a Bachelor of Arts Degree in Recreation and Leisure Studies Specializing in Psychology (Concordia University). I worked for eight years with at risk children and youth and their families. I was a stay at home mom for our 4 children and was active as a volunteer with local schools, community groups and Toast Masters.
I returned to school and completed the Master’s of Education in Counselling program at the University of Ottawa. And then went on to complete a Couples Counselling Degree at Saint Paul’s University. I am a Certified Canadian Counsellor (CCC) with the Canadian Counselling and Psychotherapy Association. I have trained extensively in counselling/therapy and have had the pleasure of working with a diverse clientele.
I offer a wealth of professional and personal life experience to my clients that help me to understand their situation and help them with their personal growth.
What a friend said
I have always believed in a united family, DIVORCE was not in my vocabulary. So when my husband left after 25 years of marriage, I needed help. I was fortunate to find an excellent counselor in my friend Monica Meyer. She gave me support, an attentive ear and a different perspective on certain situations I had experienced.
One baby step at a time she supported me through all the painful hurdles of my separation.
Monica is a very caring and solid person. She was always there for me.
Today after nearly three years, I can say I am at peace with myself and I can thank Monica for that.
