As an Associate Behavioral Health Therapist, Cady Monasmith provides individual and group therapy and clinical education to teen and young adult women.
Cady uses strength-based approaches, such as affirmations and motivational interviewing, to help her patients realize they have the capability to recover from substance use disorder and create a healthy life in recovery.
Before taking on her current role in 2020, Cady was a recreation counselor at Caron, a position she took on in 2014. She helped to facilitate recovery-based therapeutic activities, including leading movement groups based on dance and mindfulness. She continues to lead movement groups for teen, young adults, and adult women at Caron. Giving patients a safe space in which they can express their feelings and come to a better understanding of who they are builds trust and self-confidence.
Prior to Caron, she worked with the Police Athletic League Center for the Performing Arts in Reading, using creative arts with children and teens as a means of self-expression. She also did a summer internship at Berks Counseling Center during her undergraduate program, and an internship at Caron and Reading Hospital’s Partial Hospitalization Program during her master’s program.
Cady has a Master of Arts degree in clinical counseling from Alvernia University and a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree in dance performance from Temple University. She is a certified dancing mindfulness facilitator.
People need a safe space to connect to their desire to get and be well. As a therapist, I am a guide who walks that path to recovery with them. Being that witness is one of the most fulfilling parts of my work as a clinician."
