“It’s never too late to be what you might have been”

–George Eliot

Hi, I’m Monique


with an interest of Dog Assisted Therapy

My passion goes beyond conventional therapy, as I have immersed myself in the fascinating realm of Dog Emotion and Cognition. In doing so, I have gained an appreciation for the extraordinary therapeutic qualities that our canine companions possess.


Consequently, my specialized focus lies in assisting individuals who have endured the loss of a beloved pet, suffered from workplace bullying, or faced other traumas that have emerged.


Along with a comprehensive blend of psychotherapy and somatic attachment therapy, I intertwine this focus with the profound therapeutic potential inherent in the human-canine relationship when appropriate or available. 


Discover hope and happiness. Experience freedom, respect and connection.

Monique Verhoef, RTC


True happiness will present itself once we learn how to deal with our emotions, know our passions, norms and values.
