Upward Roots: Relational Therapy

Upward Roots is now offering in-person therapy in Carlsbad Village in addition to telehealth for all California residents.

Hi, I'm Melanie Goetz, LMFT and I work with individuals and couples seeking healthier ways of relating to themselves and others. 

Therapy focuses may include increasing self-esteem, practicing conflict resolution skills, processing generational patterns of trauma,  processing relational wounds from childhood, previous friendships and/or romantic relationships, developing the confidence to assert boundaries in personal and professional relationships, developing self-compassion, or increasing motivation to live the life you want to believe you deserve.

Sessions are catered to your current needs and longings.

The root of all health is in the brain.The trunk of it is in emotion.The branches and leaves are the body.The flower of health bloomswhen all parts work together. Kurdish Folk Wisdom
