About Tara Griffith MFT MA

Tara Griffith Baker

Founder | Executive Director | Therapist + Coach

First and foremost, I believe that it’s the relationship between the therapist and client that creates the foundation for change. My style is accepting, hopeful, interactive, and sometimes humorous.  I offer a highly personalized approach (blending psychotherapy and coaching techniques) tailored to fit each of my client’s unique needs, personality, and preferences.

I also believe that you are the ultimate expert on your own life.  It’s my job, however, to ask the right questions and act as your guide. I’ll help you identify your strengths and talents, develop self-awareness, and gain confidence where you need it.  I’ll challenge you at times and provide feedback on the thoughts and behaviors that may be keeping you stuck.

About Kristy Crandell - Nutrition Health Coach

Kristy Crandell

Integrative Nutrition Health + Wellness Coach

I’m a true believer that the body can heal itself and that sometimes we just have to get out of our own way! We must take a proactive role in getting healthy and staying healthy – I am passionate about helping others achieve that.

I take an integrative approach to my coaching, meaning we will take a look at not only what you put into your body nutritionally, but also what other hidden barriers could be preventing you from reaching your goals. Is your job less than inspiring? Are you in an unhealthy relationship? Are you lacking a meaningful spiritual practice? When you are lacking in any of these areas of your life you experience a hunger that cannot be satisfied by food alone. I will help you find a holistic balance that will infuse joy and satisfaction back into your life enabling you to break down barriers and regain your health and wellness.

I also believe in bio-individuality, meaning there is not one diet for all. We are all made individually and uniquely, and what might be ‘medicine’ to one person may be harmful to another. We must learn to listen to our bodies to find out what is right for us.

About Lynsie Seely, PhDc, MFT - Assistant Director & Psychotherapist

Lynsie Seely, PhDc

Assistant Director | Psychotherapist | Supervisor

My approach is empathic, collaborative, and integrative. I bring together knowledge from psychology, neuroscience, and wisdom traditions to honor the mind <CBT>, the heart/soul <self and depth-orientedpsychology>, the body <somatic psychology>, and the spirit <mindfulness, spiritual counseling, Eastern and Western rituals/practices >. Operating from a holistic lens is incredibly important to my work, as I hold that we are inherently whole and complete and that healing comes from integrating parts of ourselves that we have somehow dis-owned, disconnected from, or not fully acknowledged. We are complex beings who deserve to give voice to the entirety of our experience and by doing so, we can form a relationship with ourselves in a deeper way. This process opens up greater possibilities for healing, supports direct learning and change, and connects us to that brilliant spark of aliveness that lives in each and every one of us! In addition to the above, I have specialized training in trauma-informed techniques including: somatic experiencing and EMDR.

Gina About Gina DeLucca, PSYD - Licensed Psychologist

Dr. Gina Delucca, PsyD

Licensed Psychologist

My therapeutic style is integrative and draws upon techniques from a variety of approaches, including cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT), dialectical behavior therapy (DBT), acceptance and commitment therapy (ACT), solution-focused brief therapy (SFBT), motivational interviewing (MI), psychodynamic therapy, and person-centered therapy. I aim to tailor my approach to best meet your individual needs and preferences.

Above anything else, I believe that the connection between therapist and client is the most powerful tool for change and healing. Through the therapeutic relationship, I strive to provide a safe, compassionate, and accepting space where you can openly express yourself, process your thoughts and emotions, and explore the underlying issues that may be causing and maintaining your current struggles. As your therapist, I will help you identify realistic goals, encourage introspection, emphasize and build upon your strengths, build self-awareness, promote self-compassion, and provide honest yet gentle feedback. My style is warm, empathetic, authentic, interactive, collaborative, and sometimes humorous. I also tend to be action-oriented, and when relevant, I encourage the use of homework and goal-setting in between sessions.

About Sara Groton - Holistic Nutrition Consultant + Eating Psychology Coach

Sara Groton

Holistic Nutrition Consultant + Eating Psychology Coach

Your struggles with your body and with food do not stem from a lack of willpower or control, and they are not here to be solved with a quick fix. They are here to lead you to deeper truths about yourself that we will explore together. Instead of focusing on what you “shoulds and shouldn’t” be doing, or which foods are “good and bad,” I will help you discover what your own body has been trying to tell you all along. My approach is positive, empathetic, motivating, realistic, holistic, lighthearted, and extremely individualized. I always give homework assignments to experiment with eating habits, lifestyle changes, and mindset shifts.

May Bartlett CPCC - Life and Relationship Coach and Coaches

May Bartlett, CPCC

Life Coach/Envisionist

As a Coach and envisionist, I will work with you to consciously design your vision for the future. We are faced with layers of challenges throughout a lifetime; personal, local, and global. Whatever challenges you currently face, it can be tempting to focus on the problem in hopes of solving it, but by doing so, you run the risk of taking yourself deeper into the problem and farther away from the solution. By consciously envisioning the future, we create something to work toward, instead of against. As Einstein said, “no problem can be solved by the same level of consciousness that created it.” Together we will work to elevate your level of consciousness to reveal the nuances behind the problems you face, informing creative solutions from a place of new knowledge. Through personal inquiry, guided visualizations, perspective work, creativity, and values-based exercises, I will help you tap into your deepest source of wisdom to guide you in creating a future aligned with your truest self.

Allison Roman, FDN - Certified Herbalist and Functional Diagnostic Nutritionist

Allison Roman, FDN

Certified Herbalist + Functional Diagnostic Nutrition Practitioner

My approach is both holistic and integrative to address the physical, mental and emotional aspects of health and healing. Everybody is unique in how they express imbalances and dis-ease. Each session will be catered specifically for you.

Herbal medicine addresses organ function, energetics, nutrition, mindset and stress reduction while functional lab testing identifies the underlying imbalances and healing opportunities. This multifaceted approach along with other holistic methods creates a foundation for long-lasting optimal health, rather than focusing on symptom relief.

You are your greatest healer. Your body has the answers. Let’s get you connected to your greatest resource.

at Wellspace San Francisco

Veronica Encinas

Associate Marriage and Family Therapist

My work is informed by the practice of mindfulness and relational therapy. Being somatically trained, my approach is interactive and directive. Mindful therapy is an evidence-based form of therapy that has been proven to be highly effective in treating issues of anxiety, depression, and addiction. Together, we design a treatment plan that builds on the science of what works, and tailor individual treatment goals specifically aimed to address your unique needs.

I welcome clients to tell their stories, histories, and important aspects of their life. I also invite them to become aware of how they feel as they are sharing with me by tuning into their bodies. I welcome them to become more conscious of their five senses–to tune into their body sensations, gestures, breath, and emotions. Together, overtime, we discover significant and often transformative information about core patterns, beliefs, and ways of relating to themselves, others, and the world.

Additionally, I am a passionate advocate for social justice and equality for all, which also informs my work and the ways in which I am called to support people.

therapist at wellspace sf Kim Strong

Kim Strong

Licensed Clinical Social Worker

I take a whole human approach to my work with clients. I strive to create an environment in which clients can be their real and authentic selves. It’s important to me that clients feel safe and comfortable enough to be vulnerable and open to being supported in their healing. As complex and unique human beings, I believe that healing and growth can be discovered in many different forms. The work I do with clients is collaborative, evidence-based and from a holistic lens. I use two different modalities of therapy when working with clients including Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) and Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR). Both incorporate the clients developmental history as well as specific interventions for the issues they’re facing. I help clients to challenge old beliefs systems that are getting in the way of the kind of life they want to live. We work together to learn new ways of thinking and reacting to themselves and the world around them. I want clients to feel like they know themselves better and can tune into their strengths and accept their challenges with compassion. I want them to learn how to be the best version of themselves when they’re alone and when they’re with others. My hope is that clients will look forward to their sessions and be motivated to do meaningful work together.

Kate Stoddard AMFT Associate Marriage and Family Therapist

Kate Stoddard

Associate Marriage and Family Therapist

I believe you are the expert of your own life, and I also believe your true gifts, healing, and happiness can be unlocked through the process of therapy. My goal is to work collaboratively with you to hear your experiences, identify and understand your feelings, and then to develop insight and meaning that feels true to you. Out of nonjudgmental awareness comes a new relationship with yourself that is loving, that is freeing, and that allows you to pursue your truest desires.

I take significant interest in the unconscious and believe it is a map to finding your true self. Dreams, emotions, thoughts, feelings and behaviors are landmarks on this map to be noticed and interpreted, and over time you can navigate these places more freely, clearly and safely throughout the process of therapy.

I also believe that your joys and pleasures are equally as important to understand and hold in therapy. Your creativity contains a wellspring of health and generative energy that is often the antidote to stagnation and suffering. My hope is to help you find this creativity in your daily life and to help you nurture and value it, and to build upon it for the future.
