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 peek into our very core, and introduce us to parts of ourselves we haven't known - or have been living in fear 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 more openness and clarity. I have so much confidence in the elegance of our inner systems and their innate ability to heal, and I love using Internal Family Systems as a model for supporting people into trusting themselves.
The reproductive phase of life brings some of the most soulful and vulnerable experiences; I'm passionate about supporting people on the path to family building and parenthood 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 IFS (Internal Family Systems) Therapist and a Certified Perinatal Mental Health Professional (PMH-C) with advanced training in Intimacy From the Inside Out (working with couples using IFS). I also have training in Brainspotting, mindfulness, and neuroscience, and have particular interest in creative expression, spirituality, blended families, unloved daughters, pre and perinatal psychology, coupledom, and parenthood. I facilitate a variety of unique groups and offerings on the subjects of belonging, motherhood and IFS. 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 so that we can in turn extend healing to the larger world.
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
