Counselor: Children, Teen, Adults

Patty Joy Monical is a Licensed Marriage & Family Therapist (LMFT), Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC), Registered Play Therapist (RPT), and PhD candidate in Counseling with more than 10 years of experience working with children and their families. Patty is passionate about helping children heal through play, their natural mode of expression and processing. She coaches parents to optimize their kids’ ability to thrive so families can experience peace and joy instead of chaos and conflict. Patty also uses EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing) with kids and adults to let go of past hurts and move forward with confidence and resilience. At the core of Patty’s philosophy is the belief that we all carry stories that can benefit from a little editing and rewriting so we can embrace life with love and zest!
