Monica has been my teenage son’s therapist for at least nine months now and has helped him so much. He’s more comfortable with FaceTime calls and texts to handle his concerns so TeenCounseling is perfect for him. Monica responds to him and to us quickly and we feel very confident in her treatment.

I am so happy to have been matched with Monica so quickly. After only a couple other therapists who did not work for me, Monica is very attentive and determined to help.

My teen has had several therapists in the past and Monica is truly the best. I'm so happy to have a caring and supportive professional help my teen with their LGBTQ hurdles. She gives great suggestions and is always very available whenever we need help. I highly recommend her.

Ms. Cruz is kind, professional, and understanding. I thank teen counseling for providing quality counselors and for allowing me to receive care at the comfort of home in my pajama pants.

Monica is extremely flexible with her scheduling. I often have to reschedule lately due to a crazy period at work, and she’s always kind about it and willing to reschedule to another night. She’s also very relatable and cares about your progress.

I absolutely love Monica. I look forward to our sessions. Every single time I talk to her I feel uplifted and whatever was bothering me no longer does each time we finish. 10/10 for everything. Monica is the best and a complete inspiration to me. She has helped me get past my troubles and has helped mold my future.
