Approved Care Network
Healing TREE provides a free, nationwide directory of trauma-focused mental health providers. We work to connect individuals with providers who are not only brain-body based trauma experts but who also fit their unique needs, like being a therapist of color, a queer therapist or faith based, who take their insurance or offer sliding scale. We include providers trained in various, leading brain-body based modalities, including Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) Therapy, Somatic Experiencing (SE), Sensorimotor Psychotherapy, Brainspotting (BSP) and Internal Family Systems (IFS), who have been personally vetted with phone interviews by our team and whose certificates in these modalities are on file. We also include treatment facilities, creative arts therapists and more.
Currently, there is lack of integration between the trauma, mental health and medical fields. This leaves the vast majority of mental health and medical professionals without the extensive trauma training necessary to approach their clients’ conditions in a way that effectively deals with the root of the problem. The most common type of therapy, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), or “talk therapy,” engages only the logical, cognitive part of the brain and often results in obtaining coping strategies rather than real healing. Trauma-focused treatment modalities engage the survival part of the brain, where the “fight-flight-freeze-fawn” response takes place, which allows for the actual processing of trauma underneath the symptoms. While we believe there is certainly a place for cognitive work, we align with the belief experts and thought leaders in the trauma field subscribe to; brain-body based work is necessary for processing trauma, and therefore healing.

Why you should support our Approved Care Network
There’s no other program like it
Healing TREE’s Approved Care Network is like no other. Our therapists are personally vetted and practice a range of the leading trauma-focused treatment modalities. We remove the barriers to finding a therapist who truly knows how to heal trauma and meets our clients unique needs (including specialty, treatment modality, gender, race, insurance or sliding scale) at no cost to them.
The need for our program has increased significantly this last year due to the pandemic. 4 in 10 adults in the US have reported symptoms of anxiety or a depressive disorder, therefore trauma-focused mental health support is needed now more than ever.
Free and Nationwide
Our services continue to be free for both individuals and clinicians. We provide these services nationwide therefore everyone has access to our program. Even you!
