Your present circumstance does not determine where you can go but merely determines where you start. You are not alone and it takes courage to take the first step on this journey. As licensed therapists, Visionary Passge works closely with children, adolescents, and adults to equip individuals with unique coping slills for meaningful fulfillment in daily lives.
Overall, Visionary Passage is rooted in creating a safe, accepting, and comfortable environment, which is conducive to allow you to grow in self-awareness and self-acceptance. It is Visionary Passage’s goal that we work together to form a mutually desirable relationship. We will focus sessions on setting goals, which we will continue to assess throughout the counseling process.
Counseling is an opportunity to gain and/or regain focus, clarity, perspective, and vision. Counseling can provide a journey and/or a path to change. For many this process can include assessing individual strengths, self-healing, self-esteem, self-awareness, problem-solving, goal setting, and life meaning. It would be a privilege of Visionary Passage to travel this journey with you on your unique passage to empowerment.

Visionary Passage counseling approach is normally Cognitive Behavioral Therapy; however, Visionary Passage has an eclectic counseling style that is adaptable to meet your individual needs. Other counseling approaches include Motivational Interviewing and Dialectical Behavioral Therapy.
Cognitive Behavioral Therapy pinpoints how feelings, thoughts, and behaviors influence each other. In Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, the counselor role is to assist you in finding and practicing new coping skills and ways to process information. Sessions will focus on some of the following areas: self-awareness, choice, problem solving, and setting goals for the present and future. Other areas of counseling may include focusing on responsibility, life’s meaning, strengths and limitations, self-concept, acceptance, and change.
Outside of session, there may be homework assignments such as journal writing, reading, art or other methods of self- discovery and expression. The process and content of the assignments will be followed up in counseling sessions for the development of self-awareness and healing. Visionary Passage will challenge you in a caring and empathetic manner to examine yourself and seek alternative options and strategies for handling life.
As counselors, Visionary Passage is unable to prescribe medication. In the event that a referral is necessary, a medical doctor or nurse practitioner will appropriately evaluate the situation and make their recommendations.

Monique Brazil Heath, M. E.D., LPC, LCASA, NCC
CEO and Founder of Visionary Passage Counseling Services
I am a native Charlottean with experience working with children, adolescents, and adults. I have a true passion and gift for helping others. I provide compassion and support via individual, group, and family therapy. I am comfortable working with individuals from diverse cultures and lifestyles. My areas of focus include depression, anxiety, substance use, PTSD, trauma/abuse, domestic violence, anger management, stress management, grief/loss, and codependency.
I remember while growing up, I was always compelled to help others find answers to their problems. I was always told by my mother “find something that you love and do it to the best of your ability”. This inspired my journey as a therapist.
I graduated with a Bachelor of Arts in Psychology from East Carolina University and received my Masters of Education in Clinical Mental Health Counseling from Winthrop University. I am licensed as a Licensed Professional Counselor Associate [LPC #A11943] approved by the North Carolina Board of Licensed Professional Counselors [NCBLPC], Licensed Clinical Addiction Specialist Associate [LCASA #22745] approved by North Carolina Substance Abuse Professional Practice Board [NCSAPPB], and certified as a National Certified Counselor [NCC #628597] by the National Board for Certified Counselors.
