Lety Monroy, MA, LPC



Lety Monroy, a Licensed Professional Counselor in Pennsylvania, holds a Master’s in Clinical Mental Health Counseling from Immaculata University. Lety has extensive experience working with clients of all ages in community mental health and also currently works as a Director of Mental Health Services with individuals experiencing homelessness and a wide variety of mental health issues. With a diverse background including a personal training business, homeschooling three children for sixteen years and a decade as a Chemical Engineer, Lety found her calling in therapy through her own transformative journey.


Drawing from personal experiences, Lety brings a unique perspective, empathy, and profound respect for those who have endured suffering and loss. She understands the impact of trauma and her passion lies in working with clients who are doing their best to navigate life despite being encumbered by the effects of trauma. Lety will support clients as they develop goals and move towards them at their own pace. She will provide space for clients as they identify patterns and beliefs that are causing suffering and as they learn new skills to manage emotions and navigate healthy relationships. Lety believes in empowering clients and regularly provides psychoeducation to promote self-advocacy. Her hope is that clients will recognize their unique strengths and capabilities apart from symptoms or mental health challenges. She approaches the therapeutic process from the perspective that symptoms and behaviors are adaptive and develop as survival responses to traumatic experiences. Lety genuinely believes that people are doing the best they can and that all are capable of learning new strategies to cope with life's challenges. Lety’s approach is trauma-informed, utilizing modalities such as Psychodynamic, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Dialectical Behavioral Therapy and Mindfulness. She has an interest in Polyvagal Theory and Attachment Theory and incorporates those concepts in the therapeutic process. Lety also enjoys facilitating groups where she has the privilege of witnessing clients experience the healing power of community and shared experiences.


Lety works primarily with adults struggling with depression, anxiety, PTSD, life stressors and trauma.  She is available in person and via teletherapy, evenings and Saturday mornings.
