Our team of therapists have extensive training and expertise in perinatal mental health, infertility and mood and anxiety disorders. Family Tree Wellness is an Internal Family Systems informed practice, which means that all clinicians are skilled in the application of "parts work," with an underlying assumption of every client's essential wholeness.
What We Offer
We have intentionally created an environment in which our clinicians receive ongoing connection, education and support through regular in-house trainings, consultations and supervision gatherings. We only hire therapists who lead with compassion, curiosity, creativity and openness.
Neurofeedback is a computer based method for teaching the brain to function in a more balanced and healthful way. It does so by shifting the way the brain produces and distributes its electrical energy.
The goal is to improve the brain’s ability to self-regulate, maintain flexibility, and smoothly shift between different states. At Family Tree Wellness, we use BrainPaint® to assess your brainwave activity and then use sound and visual signals to reorganize or retrain these brain signals, to decrease symptoms and increase calm, clarity, and confidence.
Have you been thinking about trying therapy? Now is such a good time. Our world needs healing, and you are the best place to start. Whatever is unsettled in you, take an interest in it. No one else can fix it for you -- but there is so much wisdom and guidance to hold you and support you while you take an interest in yourself. That’s really what therapy is: some open space for you to examine and unburden yourself, with guidance and support.
Couples in distress often enter therapy holding two goals that seem mutually exclusive: to feel loved and to feel understood. Through our powerful, non-pathologizing approach, we help couples better understand themselves, their differences, and the underlying reasons for their suffering so that they can have better conversations and more choices moving forward.
Family Tree Wellness is proud to offer a wide range of free and paid support groups for our community. Our support groups are held online as well as in person. View our calendar to register. We cannot wait to see you.
Internal Family Systems
IFS is a powerfully transformative, evidence-based model of psychotherapy founded on the assumption that the mind is naturally multiple and that all parts of us have positive intentions.
EMDR is an eight-phase treatment that enables the mind to heal from psychological trauma, much as the body recovers from physical trauma.
Brainspotting is a powerful, focused treatment method that works by identifying, processing and releasing core neurophysiological sources of emotional or body pain, trauma and dissociation.
Teaching & Training
Family Tree Wellness is an educational resource with a wide range of offerings including a dynamic curriculum for Workplace Wellness, CEU events (as a CAMFT-approved sponsor of continuing education), supervision for Associates and creative workshops for clients and clinicians.
The moment we even begin to imagine ourselves as mothers, we begin a wild, transformative, life-changing ride. Whether we find ourselves trying to conceive, grieving the loss of a little one, gestating, birthing or parenting - motherhood can lift our hearts like nothing else - and it can also plunge us into unexpected grief, fear, inner critics and shame. This developmental phase of life is called matrescence, and it's full of vulnerability, growth and pain. At Family Tree Wellness, we are MOTHERCENTRIC, which means we start with offering care, curiosity, hope, support and validation to women on motherhood journeys. We bring curiosity and compassion into these very difficult aspects of the human experience, so that they can be metabolized and healed -- and so that women can ultimately develop trust in themselves.
When women are able to navigate the motherhood journey feeling supported and safe, they are able to develop self-trust, and if they have children, they are positioned to mother well. Sometimes moms feel unsafe because of things that are happening in their lives now; in our racist world, black mothers are suffering and dying disproportionately. Sometimes lack of safety is felt because of burdens emanating from traumas in the past. Every woman has her own living, breathing story, and deserves to be understood and cared for, whether she's experienced a complicated pregnancy or birth, challenges conceiving, an unwanted pregnancy, a disappointing realization about parenting, or a history of trauma.
Family Tree Wellness offers counseling and community to women and their families centered around the reproductive journey, as well as education and consultation for therapists who want to gain competency in this domain. Through our holistic and compassionate lens, we offer informed, practical support as a portal to healing humanity's intergenerational burdens, beginning with moms.
"Every woman who heals herself helps heal all the women who came before her, and all those who come after her."
