Dr. Montfort attended the University of Florida for undergraduate studies and subsequently earned her Doctorate in Clinical Psychology from The Graduate School of Applied & Professional Psychology at Rutgers University in 2014. She is licensed to practice psychology in the state of Florida.
She has always gravitated to working with women, and through working in a variety of settings, continued to find herself in women-centered environments. During her time as a psychologist within the Department of Veterans affairs, Dr. Montfort has worked within a residential women’s trauma unit, an outpatient Post-traumatic Stress Disorder Unit, a Substance Abuse Unit, and most recently a Women’s Health Center. One of the issues that has presented itself repeatedly is postpartum depression, which spurred a desire for her to learn more. After having children of her own, Dr. Montfort became acutely aware of the need for greater awareness and support around perinatal distress.
Dr. Montfort is committed to providing treatment to culturally diverse populations, and has specialized experience treating Perinatal Mood Disorders, Traumatic Stress Disorders, Women's Issues, Military-Related Issues, and Adjustment Issues.
No two people are alike. In the same way no single therapy modality will work for everyone.
