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.
Parenthood expands us wildly and sometimes cracks us wide open. It's a soulful and vulnerable time and I'm passionate about supporting new parents 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 (PMH-C) and an Internal Family Systems (IFS) Therapist who has completed training Levels 1,2 and 3 with special training in working with couples. 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
