About Us


Indigenous Circle of Wellness is a private psychotherapy practice. We provide quality mental wellness services, grounded in holistic healing (mental, spiritual, emotional, and physical balance) through a culturally inclusive approach. We value interdependence, family, community, and healthy sustainable relationships.

The practice is owned and operated by Monique Castro, a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist (Lic.#104229). Monique is a citizen of the Navajo Nation and Chicana, she was born and raised on Tongva territory (known by many as Los Angeles). She established Indigenous Circle of Wellness in response to the need for more healing spaces and psychotherapists supporting Native/Indigenous folks and People of Color, particularly folks seeking support outside of a large organization or institution, that prefer a private practice space.

Indigenous Circle of Wellness offers numerous services including: counseling, workshops, trainings, and consulting. We are in partnership with organizations, higher education institutions, and direct service providers working with our community throughout southern California and beyond. If we aren’t already connected with you, we would love to be! Contact us and let’s continue to build the circle of wellness together.

Some clients will receive a portion of counseling fees reimbursed to them from their insurance companies. Others will not receive any reimbursement. It is uncommon to be reimbursed our full fee.
