I am Monique Elgersma, sharing a Couples Counseling practice with my husband, Rick. We are a couple that, as a couple, works with other couples to help build healthy relationships. I grew up moving around a lot as a daughter of an Army officer, settled into Des Moines back in 1999, not counting a 5 year stint in Colorado to get my Masters in Marriage and Family Therapy. We moved back in November of 2016 with a heart to change marriages for the better here and are actively pursuing that at Real Connections Counseling in Urbandale. 
Besides being married to my best friend for over 22 years and working to get our therapy practice thriving, I have one adult daughter and a sheltie named Zylie that both keep me content and busy as well. When I am not working, I like to ride my bike, go camping, watch movies, read for both business and pleasure and go to marriage retreats and conferences.
