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 (Diné/Xicana), a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist (Lic.#104229). She established Indigenous Circle of Wellness in response to the need for more healing spaces and psychotherapists supporting Native American/Alaska Native, Indigenous and People of Color, particularly folks seeking support outside of a large organization or institution, that prefer a private practice space.
We envision the opportunity to share cultural and spiritual practices with our community members by offering a sacred therapeutic space to go beyond sobriety and recovery and into culturally based healing and wellness. The use of alcohol and drugs, domestic violence, suicide, chronic grief and loss, internalized oppression, emotional, spiritual, and mental wounds are ALL symptoms not causes of imbalance. In order to heal, a community needs to deal with the causes of historical and generational, unresolved trauma and move toward balance. We acknowledge our interconnectedness to all that has been created in this life and the unseen world. Our reverence for ancestral teachings, including 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. Healing will take place through the use of cultural and spiritual knowledge, as it takes everyone to heal the community.
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.
