We listen, act and transform

Our practice is guided by the belief that mental and emotional health are essential to living a meaningful life and that therapy is about more than just treating symptoms for the short-term, but rather empowering people to live their best lives. We believe that individuals are the expert in their own lives and our role is help you implement the changes you hope to make.  

Hello! I’m Mondie

LISW-S

My name is Mondie Gonzales and I am a licensed independent social worker (LISW-S) in the state of Ohio. I earned my Bachelor’s degree in Psychology in 1992 and then a Masters in Social Work in 1999. I have worked with kids and families in a community mental health setting for most of my 30 year career as a mental health professional. I opened a private practice, working with individuals, couples and families 10 years ago. I utilize many different modalities and techniques, depending on your needs and goals. Throughout these experiences I have discovered that the most important aspect of any therapeutic relationship is the relationship! I believe that you are the expert in your own life and my role is to help you implement the changes you are hoping to make.

My goal is to help individuals and families gain or improve their life skills in order to make the best choices for what they want to accomplish. My focus as a practitioner is to help you know what you want, name it and define what it looks like, so that you can live your life in a way that moves you toward that goal. I believe that everything in your life intertwines to create your life story and that we all have control over our destiny. I believe in making informed choices, setting appropriate boundaries, and accepting responsibility.

    My name is Emily Davis and I am a licensed independent social worker (LISW) offering telehealth sessions via my home office in Lakewood, OH. I earned my Masters in Social Work in 2019 following a 10 year career in the fashion industry. My passion for mental health ignited this drastic career change. I have worked with individuals, couples, and families for 4 years, offering an array of therapeutic approaches.  

     Your first session will include an exploration of what brings you to therapy, discussion of past experiences with mental health providers, and what you hope to accomplish in our time together. More importantly, the first session is an opportunity for you to get a sense of my therapeutic style and determine if I am the right fit for your needs. I look forward to working alongside you as you endeavor to heal and grow!
