LICENSED THERAPIST (LCSW, LMFT)
Wellspring Family Therapy was founded in 2020 by Suzette Bray, LMFT in response to the high demand of mental health services during and after the COVID-19 crisis. Suzette is well-regarded throughout the state of California as a supervisor, clinician and DBT expert. In addition to Wellspring Family Therapy, Suzette is also the Founder and Director of Village Counseling and Wellness, a well-known DBT center based in Burbank, CA.
Throughout the COVID-19 crisis, Suzette saw the need for long-lasting and ongoing mental health services outside the scope of what Village Counseling and Wellness provides through their DBT services. Passionate about serving her community, this drive sparked Suzette to create Wellspring Family Therapy to ensure that adults, teens, children, couples, and families throughout the state of California can access high-quality therapeutic support.
Designed to increase accessibility of therapy services in California’s suburban, rural and less-populated areas, Wellspring Family Therapy provides only teletherapy services to clients across the state.
Wellspring Family Therapy provides comprehensive teletherapy services for adults, teens, children, couples, and families throughout California. We specialize in providing traditional therapeutic services in a teletherapy environment, such as the treatment of anxiety, depression, relational challenges, self-esteem/self-worth issues, parenting struggles, trauma, grief and loss, and significant life transitions.
Our Licensed Therapists are vital members of the Wellspring Family Therapy team. This role is a part-time position with a minimum requirement of 15 hours/week, with the flexibility to become a full-time position. The entirety of the work will be done via teletherapy, and will not require participation in any additional duties outside of clinical services.
