Jessica Sorci, LMFT, PMH-C
Founding Director and Clinical Operations
Relationships have the power to heal and transform lives. Psychotherapy is a uniquely intimate and powerful relationship designed to open us up at our very core, and introduce us to parts of ourselves we have been afraid of. By bringing awareness and compassion to the dark corners, we come to know and trust ourselves. Our old shameful, scary burdens release - and we naturally shift into confidence and clarity.
Motherhood expands us and sometimes cracks us wide open. It's a soulful and vulnerable time and I'm passionate about supporting women and their families to find connection and healing when they need it most. 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 a Certified Perinatal Mental Health Professional and an Internal Family Systems (IFS) Therapist who has completed training Levels 1,2 and 3 with special training in working with couples. Areas of particular interest and ongoing study include IFS, 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 facilitate a variety of unique groups and offerings on the subject of motherhood, IFS 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 training and healing therapists to extend healing to the greater world. I specialize in the following:
* training and supervising therapists and other practitioners
* 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
