About Us

Indigenous Circle of Wellness is a group private practice located in Southeast Los Angeles but provide tele-therapy throughout California. 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, healthy sustainable relationships, inclusion, and social justice.

We encourage healing that centers the ancestral wisdom and cultural practices from our own lineages, reclaiming the healing practices of our ancestors. We acknowledge our interconnections to all that has been created in this life and the unseen world. Our reverence for ancestral teachings, include creation stories, a deep respect for Mother Earth, Father Sky, the four winds/directions and the elements of water, fire, earth, and wind to allow us to find balance as they are our greatest teachers.

Indigenous Circle of Wellness offers numerous services to the community, including counseling, workshops, trainings, and consulting. We are in partnership with local community 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.

The practice is owned and operated by Monique Castro (Diné/Xicana), a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist (Lic.#104229). Monique established Indigenous Circle of Wellness at the start of 2018, her efforts were in response to the need for more healing spaces and mental health providers supporting Native, Indigenous and People of Color, particularly consumers seeking support outside of a large organization or institution and prefer a private practice setting. In a short amount of time the practice has grown tremendously, with a team of phenomenal licensed mental wellness providers, pre-licensed providers, support staff, volunteers, and an extension program, our non-profit organization So’oh-Shinálí Sister Project.
