Monica Pope, Ed.D., LCSW
In 2010 Monica’s devotion to helping others inspired her to open her first private practice where she provided individual and couples therapy to children and adults of all ages. In the 9 years since, she has served as a counselor, mentor, and facilitator for countless individuals, helping them see beyond the limitations we allow circumstances, fear, and other people to place on us. Monica believes each person is the sole expert about themselves and that with a direct, honest approach, can leverage that expertise to create fulfillment in life, relationships, and career.
In her role as a career counselor, Monica applies her nearly two decades of expertise to helping clients use credible assessments to evaluate their abilities, talents, and skills, and then connect that knowledge with real world opportunities. As adults, we spend most of our lives working. By understanding and aligning our natural abilities and their resulting needs with the work we do is critical to finding success and fulfillment in our careers.
“My career has taken many turns along the way, including a lot of work to understand who I am and what truly makes me happy. Information gained through and the process of taking the Highlands Ability Battery can literally put clients years ahead in achieving a career that maximizes their skills and abilities, creates confidence through success, and avoids the daily drudgery of unfulfilling work. I look forward to taking this journey of discovery with you!”
-Dr. Monica Pope
