Thursday June 25th Keynote Speaker- Monique Castro

Monique Castro is a citizen of the Navajo Nation and Mexican. She’s a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist, business owner, coach, consultant, educator, and advocate. Her professional experience expands over thirteen years, specifically within the Native community, supporting efforts in various roles and capacities (from volunteering, providing clinical training, to developing new curricula). Monique has and continues to work with numerous social service organizations, higher education institutions, and Tribes throughout California and nationally to achieve wellness for all our communities. In 2017, Monique founded Indigenous Circle of Wellness, a thriving psychotherapy private practice located in South East Los Angeles where she and her team provide mental wellness services to adults, children, teens, couples, and families. She established Indigenous Circle of Wellness in response to the need for more healing spaces and psychotherapists supporting Native/Indigenous and People of Color on their wellness journey. Monique is also the co-founder of the California Native Vote Project, a statewide integrated voter engagement organization dedicated to achieving equity for Native peoples and increasing political participation throughout the state of California. Monique earned a Bachelor of Arts degree in Psychology from California State University of Los Angeles (CSULA) and Master of Science degree in Counseling Psychology from Mount Saint Mary’s University (MSMU).
