Dr Monica Borschel

My goal is to guide you out of the suffering you are feeling from abuse, loss, and unhealthy relationships.  I understand how scary it is in the darkness. So let’s transition you back into the light. I can help you to feel seen and heard again.

I have helped hundreds of individuals go from suffering to thriving. I have studied the effects of abuse, loss, and unhealthy relationships on self-worth, trust, depression, and anxiety for almost fifteen years.

I can help you and your family adjust to anxiety, trauma, abuse, divorce, separation, and grief. This includes what is in the children’s best interest during disputes. As a result, the relationship and communication between the parents and the children strengthen.  I can help you understand and fix relationship patterns.

I am from Salt Lake City, Utah. I graduated with my master’s in psychology from Columbia University in New York City. I pursued my doctorate in Social Work and Social Administration at the University of Hong Kong. I live in California and am working on my PsyD at California Southern University.
