At Wellspring, every kind of family is welcome. There is no “one size fits all” solution to the inevitable social, emotional and behavioral challenges that all families face. Family relationships are rich and complex and whether you are a parent, children, sibling or spouse, we all play a role in how the family system functions on a day to day basis. When these relationships are challenged by big life transitions, trauma, conflict, and other external stressors, it can take a huge toll on everyone’s mental health and well-being. Our therapists are highly experienced and trained and include licensed child psychologists, licensed clinical social workers and marriage and family therapists. They can help you and your family develop strategies and solutions that can address your family’s own unique situation. While our therapists often work individually with children and teens, they approach each family as a system and all members are invited to participate in the therapeutic process. Wellspring therapists are compassionate, caring, and able to provide guidance and strategies for a whole range of issues including:
- A significant life change such as divorce, loss of a family member, or a move
- Difficulties with anger management
- School refusal
- Intense irritability or mood changes
- Social isolation or interpersonal difficulties
- Trauma-related difficulties
- Sleep issues (such as insomnia, wakefulness, or nightmares)
- Technology related challenges – excessive use or overuse
Our therapists are trained to utilize a range of evidence-based strategies including interpersonal neurobiology, cognitive behavioral therapy, attachment-based and trauma-specific treatment, dialectical behavioral therapy, social learning, and sand tray therapy.
Sometimes it takes someone outside of the family system to identify how relationships get stuck and unhealthy patterns develop. Our therapists utilize a strength-based approach to identify individual and shared strengths, to work through entrenched patterns, embrace new ways to support and love each other, and improve communication between all family members.
