Our first annual fundraising gala, "Stars of the Stage and Screen Come Out to Support Healing TREE", was held March 12 at Majid’s in Louisville, Kentucky. The night featured special guests from Broadway, film and TV, a live auction, survivor testimonials, and more!

A huge thank you to our sponsors, donors, guests, talent and gala committee! You can learn more about the event and see photos and video from the evening here.

The enormous support we received is being used to get our vital programming off the ground. We now have Continuing Education Units and an educational video in the works, designed by our Director of Educational Programs to educate professionals across fields as well as the public on trauma.

We also have secured a team to work on expanding our Approved Care Network so that survivors and their loved ones can find professionals in their area who understand how to treat trauma.

Healing TREE Welcomes a New Director of Educational Programs

We are thrilled to announce our new Director of Educational Programs, Erika Hellwig, M.ED, LMHC. She will be using her extensive clinical background in working with trauma to develop Continuing Education Units, educational videos, Speaking Engagements and more with Healing TREE!

She has been a practicing psychotherapist since 2003 when she earned her degree in Mental Health Counseling from the University of Massachusetts. She has worked at Harvard University, Westwood Lodge Hospital, Brighton Allston Mental Health Clinic, Justice Resource Institute and Wild Acre Inns Residential Treatment. Her vast experience in the field, treating a wide variety of issues has allowed her to develop a comprehensive approach that works for most of her clients.
