Restoring Balance & Empowering Professionals in Houston

At Destination Therapy, we’ve transformed our long-held dream into a reality: a sanctuary for professionals and couples seeking exceptional, inclusive care right here in Houston. Our journey began with a profound commitment to addressing the pervasive issue of burnout that affects professionals across various fields.

At Destination Therapy, our calling is to support busy professionals and couples in overcoming emotional hurdles. We’ve witnessed the profound impact of issues like anxiety, burnout, depression, and the pursuit of perfection on overall life satisfaction. Our purpose is to be the guiding hand that helps professionals and couples rediscover their balance and flourish along their journey.

Our Purpose

At the heart of Destination Therapy, we adhere to three guiding principles: genuine human connection, unconditional positive regard, and empathy. These principles illuminate our path, ensuring that every client who walks through our doors or joins us online feels genuinely understood. This profound connection forms the foundation for the transformative support we offer.

Our mission is clear – to provide unwavering support to a diverse clientele of professionals, including medical practitioners, attorneys, consultants, and more. We understand the delicate equilibrium between professional responsibilities and life’s demands, and our purpose is to help you navigate it and provide you with the support that you need.

Our Founder

Hello, I’m Monique, and I’m not just the founder of Destination Therapy; I’m a dedicated therapist who has embarked on a transformative journey to help individuals in their pursuit of well-being. I am not currently accepting new clients, as my focus is providing support, clinical guidance, and consultation to all clinicians on the Destination Therapy team. You can reach out to me via the “contact us” page if you’re interested in speaking engagements, workshops, or training.

My journey as a clinician began in the U.K. in 2011 when I embarked on the path to becoming a therapist. After completing both clinical and academic studies, I graduated with a degree in Humanistic Counseling Practice from the University of Nottingham, England. The Humanistic approach, in which I specialize, is grounded in the belief that every individual has their own unique lens for perceiving, experiencing, and understanding the world. I lean into curiosity about my clients’ worlds to understand their subjective experiences deeply and meaningfully.

My passion for travel and my desire to broaden my cultural lens led me to New York City in 2015. Driven by a dream of working in a vibrant, diverse city, that dream became a reality when I was awarded a scholarship to pursue my Master of Social Work at New York University (NYU). Since then, I have worked in diverse clinical settings, serving a broad population of clients and communities, and love that I now get to call Houston, Texas, my home. I believe in lifelong learning and had the privilege of attending the National Institute for Psychotherapies in New York City to deepen my knowledge and enhance my clinical skills. In 2021, I completed the certificate program in Psychodynamic Approaches in Clinical Practice.

I’ve been trained in a range of therapeutic disciplines, which has influenced the way I lead and how we work as a team. At Destination Therapy, our work is grounded in being Humanistic and Person-Centered, which means that you, the client, are our priority, and building a strong foundation for our therapeutic relationship is paramount to us.
