About Us

San Diego’s Premier Primary Mental Health Treatment Center Exclusively for Adult Women, Transgender & Nonbinary Individuals

Whether you are struggling with trauma and PTSD, anxiety, depression, or broken relationships we offer you a safe, caring refuge where you can begin the healing process and start to create the life you dream of.

Wings was founded by two therapists–a psychologist and a marriage and family therapist–with extensive experience in the mental health treatment field. Through our years of experience helping patients with these heart-wrenching issues to open up and heal, we understand first-hand the devastating effects that trauma and mental illness can have on individual lives and the lives of the people who love them.

We also know first-hand the magic that happens when you make the choice to enter a safe, healing environment and share your story with other women, including both highly-trained therapists and your peers in recovery. The healing process begins with you, and it ripples out to your family, your community, and the world.


Treatment Approach

We’re proud to offer a variety of therapies to ensure our clients get the attention they need. No two people need the same exact care, so we tailor our approach to meet the needs of our clients.
Our therapists are trained in multiple types of one-on-one therapy, including EMDR, IFS, and other trauma-focused approaches to help you heal and create the life you want.
Your peers in recovery will understand, support, and lovingly challenge you to grow into the version of that you want to become.
Balance your mind, body, and spirit with a wide variety of holistic treatment approaches.

Individualized Treatment for Mental Health

Every woman, transgender, or non binary identifying individual who walks through our doors is unique. That’s why instead of a typical one-size-fits-all program, our therapists work with you to create an individualized treatment plan to meet your needs and ensure that you gain the tools that you need to heal and move forward in your life.

Levels of Mental Health Treatment

At Wings, we offer three levels of treatment. When you call our admissions team to learn about your mental health treatment options, we will work with you to find the level that is right for you.

When you are just beginning the process of recovery you often need a safe place to go. Surrounded by other women in recovery as well as our professional, caring treatment team, our San Diego residential treatment center will become a second home where you are guaranteed a safe environment free of distractions that could otherwise interfere with your recovery.

When you are ready to step down from residential treatment and move back to your home or if you are a good candidate to begin treatment while still living at home, our PHP program offers a safe, nurturing place for you to receive treatment during the day. Our PHP program runs from 10 AM to 4:30 PM, Monday through Friday. It includes both individual and group therapy, including trauma-focused treatment and a number of holistic therapy options.
When you are ready to leave residential or PHP care but want to continue developing your coping skills and receiving support from your peers, our San Diego IOP program is a great option. The ‘I’ in IOP stands for intensive, and our IOP program runs 9 hours per week with a flexible schedule.

Our Approach to Mental Health and Trauma Treatment

All of our programs include both individual and group therapy, including a wide range of evidence-based and holistic therapies. At Wings, we specialize in trauma-focused therapies like EMDR and IFS because we know that trauma often lies at the root of mental health disorders.

We also offer holistic therapies like equine therapy, mindfulness, and expressive arts because, in order to truly take root, healing must include your mind, body, and spirit. Click here to learn more about our unique treatment approach.

A San Diego Primary Mental Health Treatment Center Specializing in Trauma

At Wings, we know that choosing the right mental health treatment center for you can be confusing. There are so many options, and not all of them are reputable or a good fit for you as an individual.

We opened Wings as a women’s treatment center because especially when you are healing from trauma, a safe, distraction-free environment provides the best atmosphere for healing. And the women you meet in treatment may just become lifelong friends and companions on the road to recovery.

We have also worked hard to gain a seal of approval from the Joint Commission, the highest level of accreditation in the treatment field. Our Joint Commission approval is our guarantee to you to provide the highest level of holistic, evidence-based treatment in San Diego.
