Jessica Sorci, LMFT
Founding Director and Clinical Operations
Relationships have the power to heal and transform lives; psychotherapy is a uniquely intimate and powerful relationship that opens us up at our very core and allows us to touch and reshape our essential selves. What an incredible gift it is to accompany people into their greater depths as they come to trust themselves.
Motherhood is soulful and vulnerable and I'm passionate about supporting women and their families during this most tender and critical time of life. Like many of my clients, I'm a working mom, finding my way as I go, struggling and cherishing, triumphing and feeling overwhelmed at times. I continue to expand and challenge my own mind, body and spirit through my personal work, play and exploration which is vital to my ability to work effectively with others in a healing capacity.
I am an Internal Family Systems Therapist. Areas of particular interest and ongoing study include Internal Family Systems, pre and perinatal psychology, mindfulness, somatic modalities of healing, neuroscience, creative expression, spirituality, blended families, couples and parenthood - as well as all of the relational and attachment struggles that emerge between people who matter to each other. I work with individuals and couples in my practice and I facilitate a variety of unique groups and offerings on the subject of motherhood and women's wellness. I am also a Founding Director of Family Tree Wellness, where I focus much of my energy on cultivating a supportive environment for therapists to heal themselves and extend healing to the greater world. I specialize in the following:
* prenatal and postpartum transitions
* mother wounds
* marital challenges (including separation and divorce)
* blended families
* anxiety (intrusive thoughts and preoccupation)
I received a Bachelor of Arts in Psychology from the University of California at Los Angeles and a Master of Arts in Clinical Psychology from Antioch University. LMFT #53881
