Monica Lieser, MMFT, LMFT, LPC
Founder & Director of Operations
Hello! The vision for Sandhill came to me in 2000 and it was fortunate to take flight in 2009. The crane is my personal animal spirit guide. As a founder, I could not be prouder of the intention in which Sandhill operates, grows, and provides mental health services. I have enjoyed every role at Sandhill over the past 15 years. There is no better way to nurture a business than to have executed every responsibility of the company’s operation
I hold a master’s degree in Marriage and Family Therapy, a license in marital and family therapy, and a license in professional counseling. I have taught graduate course, supervised new therapists, and held both local and state professional association positions. In 2016 I retired from clinical practice and have enjoyed focusing on clinical and business development at Sandhill. In 2023 I make the thoughtful decision to infuse vitality into Sandhill by selling the company to Nystrom and Associates. Today I serve as Director of Operations for Sandhill here in Missouri and Sandhill is fully supported and buoyed by Nystrom all the while honoring our trusted brand.
Outside of Sandhill I enjoy traveling with my two sons, trail running, listening to live music, and
reading and discussing books with an inspiring group of women.
