Announcement icon Due to COVID-19, I offer a limited number of in person sessions for EMDR work. I also provide telehealth (online) and phone counseling.
Monica P. Band is not currently accepting new clients.
The mind and body are connected. Sometimes, our body will tell us something is wrong before we allow ourselves to feel it. I specialize in providing counseling for grief, loss, anxiety, depression, and relationship issues with a focus on this connection. I help individuals and couples heal from difficult and past trauma. I also offer career counseling services. Above all, I value our therapeutic relationship and your culture. I take time and care in getting to know what's important to you. I provide both in-person and telehealth counseling for the Virginia and Washington D.C. communities.
I use mindfulness, humanistic, psychodynamic, and existential techniques. This requires us to explore past feelings and patterns. My goal is to collaboratively work with you to explore and challenge your unwanted feelings, negative/intrusive thoughts, and destructive behaviors to help you move forward in your relationships, work, and personal life.
I have served the greater Northern Virginia area for 10 years as a mental health professional. I have worked in crisis, community based, and university settings. I am also a Clinical Supervisor in which I teach and supervise graduate students becoming future counselors.
