Susie Munsey, LCSW

I provide counseling to children and teens (ages 5-18). I am a nationally certified Trauma Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapist. I find it very meaningful to help children and teens heal from past trauma and I feel honored to be a witness to their strength and resilience. I have extensive training and a deep passion for working with children and families experiencing grief. In addition to grief and trauma, I also love supporting children through anxiety, depression, anger issues, self-esteem issues, relationship difficulties, and life transitions. I enjoy building relationships with parents so that they can grow and feel supported throughout the therapeutic process. I have partnered with many families to provide their children with coping abilities to get through various life difficulties and emotional challenges. 

I am a warm, accepting, and empathic therapist, dedicated to assisting my clients to achieve their therapeutic goals. I am intentional in creating a relaxed environment, developing a trusting relationship, adapting to individual needs, and providing clear communication. I believe that laughter and fun are important parts of healing from life’s difficulties. I’m also a mom, and a native Arizonan, and I love dogs!

I am a therapist intern, currently getting my Master’s degree in Marriage and Family Therapy. I’m thrilled to be staying on the team at Resilience Therapy post graduation in May. I have worked with children and young adults (ages 5-24) for the last ten years and it has become a passion of mine to be there to help them grow into individuals they are proud of. Personal experience has shown me that even in the toughest of times, strength can be found. That is where resilience is born. It is my goal to help each of my clients identify their strengths and learn to use them to build the life they want.
I strive to make sure that my clients know that I care. Therapy can be daunting, so I like to create a space where fun, communication, and trust thrive as I help my clients work through family relationship issues, anxiety, depression, relationship struggles, self-esteem/self-love, and day-to-day difficulties. I have a passion for family therapy and I enjoy helping to strengthen familial relationships, healthy communication and building trust. I am excited about starting this chapter of life as a new resident of Tucson and working with Resilience Therapy to support the members of this community. I am currently accepting new clients and can schedule immediately!

 

 

 

Celina Peña, LAC

Hello and welcome! I am a licensed associate counselor (LAC) and Certified Clinical Trauma Specialist for Families. I love to work collaboratively with my clients and their families, and I feel honored to be a part of their growth and self-enhancement. My passion for working with children began as a volunteer at a local children’s shelter in Tucson. This passion has continued in my career in working with children with Autism and in various Children’s Advocacy Centers. I have specialized training in Trauma-Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (TF-CBT), Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR), and Applied Behavioral Analysis (ABA). I can help your child and family with a wide range of mental health challenges and life difficulties including trauma, anxiety, depression, relational and behavioral issues. I am a firm believer in meeting the client’s specific needs and providing them with catered therapeutic services based on their development and interests. Additionally, I am a proud Tucson native and a Mexican American woman who can communicate fluently with families in Spanish through speaking, reading, and writing. I believe in providing quality services to all members of our diverse community. My light continues to grow as I witness children and families build resilience through healing from their difficult life experiences.

I am accepting new clients at the end of April!

 

 

¡Hola y bienvenidos! Soy una terapeuta licenciada. Creo en los esfuerzos de colaboración con mis clientes y sus familias, y me siento honrada de ser parte de su crecimiento y superación personal. Mi pasión por trabajar con niños comenzó como voluntaria en un refugio infantil local en Tucson. Esta pasión ha continuado en mi carrera trabajando con niños con autismo y en varios Centros de Defensa de los Niños. Tengo entrenamiento especializada en Terapia Cognitivo Conductual Centrada en el Trauma (TF-CBT), Desensibilización y Reprocesamiento del Movimiento Ocular (EMDR) y Análisis Conductual Aplicado (ABA). Creo firmemente en satisfacer las necesidades específicas de los clientes y brindarles servicios terapéuticos adaptados a su desarrollo e intereses. Además, soy orgullosa de hacer nativa de Tucson y una mujer mexicana que puede comunicarse y dar servicios de terapia en español. Creo que es muy importante que la comunidad pueda recibir servicios especializados sobre la salud mental y en el idioma que uno necesita. Mi pasión de ayudar a los niños y las familias es enorme y sigue creciendo cuando veo el resultado de la terapia y el esfuerzo de las familias y los niños.
