“If you can't fly then run,
If you can't run then walk,
If you can't walk then crawl,
But whatever you do you have to keep moving forward.”

to Help Make Positive Changes on the Outside
and Pre/Post Adoption Support/Counseling
Monarch Therapy, LLC is a family focused integrative therapeutic healing center based on a private psychotherapy practice founded by Kimberly Rodgers, LCSW, RPT-S in 2008. We specialize in helping individuals and families resolve issues related to Stress, Anxiety, Trauma, and Adjustment to Life Transitions in a confidential, agency-free environment. We continue to offer counseling for individuals, families, couples, and groups, including play therapy, sand tray therapy, and EMDR for children, adolescents, and adults.
As referrals increased beyond Kimberly's scheduling capacity and some clients preferred to wait rather than be referred out, the practice grew in 2010. With the mission of empowerment following a comprehensive systemic approach, Monarch Therapy, LLC expanded in 2011 to include behavior and parenting services for individuals and families striving to make positive behavior changes, as well as adoption related services (home studies for private attorney assisted adoptions and pre and post adoption
counseling and support).
Kimberly pursued training as a yoga teacher to incorporate into therapy with awareness of the mental, emotional, and physical benefits of yoga. Through the experience, she became even more aware of the spiritual benefits and importance of the interconnection of all pieces in the healing process. Clients were encouraged to explore yoga and make time for self-care and healthy coping skills for stress relief such as massage. They often replied they felt intimidated about going to a yoga studio, had limited time to schedule a massage, or felt fear in opening up to someone else.
Research continues to validate that therapeutic approaches connecting mind, body, and spirit, and addressing the complete brain, including integration of right and left hemispheres, allow for more comprehensive long-lasting healing beyond traditional talk therapy by accessing the subconcious at a deeper level. With awareness of the need for easily accessible mind/body/spirit integration to further complement psychotherapy services, we expanded into a holistic healing center in January 2012. Our services became more complete as we partnered with other experts and added yoga, meditation, transformational breath®, massage therapy, aromatherapy, energy healing, and sound healing.
