Philosophy and Approach

Roots is a specialty clinic which provides “bottom-up” therapy and treatment. We believe that in order to find healing and maximize growth and development, the root of any issue must be identified and resolved – while many clinics and treatment approaches can offer “band-aid” therapy by treating symptoms and what is evident on the surface, we believe that getting to the core issue is what brings about lasting healing and change.

Anxiety, anger issues, difficulties with sleep, impulsivity – these are all often symptoms of a deeper core issue (trauma, sensory system needs, emotional dysregulation, autism, attachment issues). We will work with you or your child to meet the underlying need. You will find that symptoms will naturally alleviate when the core issues are addressed and unmet needs are recognized and satisfied.

When a tree is provided a firm foundation with deeply planted roots, we see its leaves and flowers naturally blossom. Likewise, when a person is afforded a secure base from which to grow and develop, we see their potential flourish. A person can choose to try to mend and repair broken or damaged flowers and fruits on a tree, can even paint the leaves to make them appear healthy and whole, or he can nourish and water the roots and watch the fruits naturally blossom!
