About Monica

 
monica
 

I am Monica Stoker, a Licensed Professional Clinical Counselor with a private practice in Napa, California specializing in individuals who have experience trauma and couples who want to reconnect, with a faith-based perspective. 

 

I have experience working in the military, academic setting, community agency and private practice. As a graduate of Gordon Conwell Theological Seminary, I have worked with a variety of clients, integrating counseling therapy along with principles of hope. I now have a private practice serving the people of Napa, specializing in couples counseling, relationship concerns, depression and anxiety as well as healing from traumatic events. 

 

I have been told that I am a warm, direct and intuitive counselor. I utilize a combination of a strengths-based and solution-focused therapy. I help clients reach long-term health when we identify and resolve the emotional, mental, spiritual, relational, and physical root causes of the pain in their lives, while attending to the immediate concerns.

 

My hope for my clients is that they find purpose for their lives with their past reconciled, their pain resolved, and their perspectives regarding themselves, others, and God restored.

 

I've been married to David for 28 years and have three adult children: Andrew 24, Sarah 21 and Nathan 20.
