Announcement icon Offering in-person services in Santa Clara County and video therapy sessions for those in California, Arizona, and Vermont.


I provide therapy to help you move forward if you’re feeling stuck by breaking old patterns, finding joy in your life, and building a better path forward. Along the way, you’ll navigate difficult situations, gain confidence, and express yourself authentically. As an LGBTQ ally, I also provide assessments for letters to have gender-affirming surgery.
My approach is eclectic to fit your needs, help build your strengths, and create opportunities for growth. We'll create sustainable goals that align with your values and find strategies to overcome obstacles. My work draws from many years of helping adults, families, children, and couples in clinics, schools, and community settings.
I offer online sessions to those in CA, VT, and AZ. I also do in-person & walk-and-talk therapy in Santa Clara County. As a gamer, I use video games to help you feel at ease, build skills, & process your difficulties. Games & other activities have been used effectively in therapy to help clients process difficulties & express themselves.

"Talking with Monet was a great experience. He really helped me understand the issues I had been dealing with and how I can best address them. Monet always made me feel safe to be vulnerable and dive deep into issues I had previously ignored. As a young man, ..."
