Monica Geller, MHC-LP
Monica Geller received her master’s degree in Mental Health Counseling from Long Island University and completed her undergraduate studies in Forensic Psychology from John Jay College. Becoming a therapist has always been a calling for her from a young age.
Monica’s goal is to help individuals, families, and couples embrace life transitions/changes, overcome obstacles, and develop new ways to cope. She has worked with individuals battling addiction, anxiety, PTSD, and depression in an outpatient mental health and substance setting. Monica works with clients to instill coping skills while teaching them to gain a deeper meaning and purpose. She incorporates motivational interviewing, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), mindful techniques, and psychodynamic approaches within her scope of practice.
She views therapy as an open and safe space to explore negative feelings that cloud one’s mind and as an opportunity to embrace speaking freely without fear or judgement. Monica has a passion working with adolescents and their families to improve interpersonal relationships, manage anxiety, and cope with challenges.
Monica resides in Brooklyn, New York, along with her husband and young daughter. In her free time, she practices yoga and in the winter season, she enjoys snowboarding. Becoming a first-time mom during the global pandemic encouraged her to broaden her education in Maternal Mental Health to better help and support other new moms.
Monica’s definition of happiness is learning, laughing, living in the moment, iced coffee, being a foodie, and making new memories with her family.
