Monika WeldonRSA II – Arizona OP – Outpatient Health Center

Hello!  My name is Monika Weldon.  I joined the RI International team on January 3, 2017.  I began my journey as a helping professional 24 years ago responding to crisis calls.  Since then, I have had the privilege of working in many settings, including residential treatment for Native American youth, community based programs for adults with developmental disabilities, child welfare agencies, and outpatient behavioral health centers.

I obtained a Bachelor of Arts degree in psychology from Fort Lewis College in Durango, Colorado and then a Master of Arts degree in counseling psychology from Alliant International University in San Diego, California.  Currently, I am working towards completing a Doctorate of Behavioral Health at Arizona State University.

My hope is to further the field of whole health care, minimize stigma associated with mental health, and promote wellness and quality of life for each member of our community.  I look forward to continuing this journey at RI International!
