Monica founded the Sandhill Institute for Professional Development in December of 2018. The Institute represents Monica’s ongoing commitment to deepening relationships with colleagues and her commitment to advancing the craft of psychotherapy, the body of behavioral science research, and the accountability of practitioners to their respective professions in behavioral medicine and the like. The Institute will create space for meaningful, challenging, and forward-thinking conversations.
