Please mention that you were referred by Healing TREE when / if you reach out to anyone in our Approved Care Network. Special rates and scheduling arrangements may be possible with some of our providers.

The providers alone, and not Healing TREE, are responsible for the care that they provide. Healing TREE has, to the best of our ability, vetted their practices and made sure that they understand, are capable of, and trained in treating trauma. Currently, our network of approved care and supplemental care providers is only in the USA. If you have any questions or concerns about any of these providers, please don’t hesitate to contact us.
