My approach is friendly, relaxed, and motivational. Along with providing therapy for relationship complications and mental disorders, I am also a youth soccer coach where patience, understanding, and teamwork are must haves. I have worked with several folks with various diagnosis and have found success by applying a Cognitive Behavioral approach or at times a Rational Emotive Behavioral approach. Another strength of mine is trauma processing, where I apply Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR). I am light hearted and work hard to ensure good quality sessions, while maxing out the abilities of the folks who see me. I currently hold a Masters Degree in Marriage and Family Therapy and undergraduate studies in Social Science. My experience ranges from crisis interventions, to dealing with critical diagnosis such as Schizophrenia, and Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), to working with sleep disturbances and anxiety disorders.

I had such a hard time finding a therapist for myself, a person of color located and trained in California. Its been fantastic to have a flexibility in hours compared to my regular primary health care. I'm so pleased with the way all communication and tools have gone with Ralph Monroy. It is truly a relief to have someone that can listen and relate to my concerns. I would recommend him 1000% percent along with this platform. Flexible options are limited during the holidays. Thank you fir all of your service and help!

Ralph listens well and asks good questions, gently leading to answers, rather than dictating them. He offers positive advice and has been able to answer all the questions I have had so far.
