How It All Started
 

 

With a heart and compassion to help children, families, and adults struggling with mental health issues, as well as a strong desire to represent Hispanic woman minority business owners, Dr. Christina Villarreal-Davis set out to opened a sole private practice on October 16, 2006. When deciding on the business name, Dr. Villarreal-Davis focused to two of her greatest passions: play therapy and spiritual integration in mental health. The first part of the business name comes from one of her favorite scripture verses found in Proverbs 4:23 which states, “Above all else, guard your heart, for it is the wellspring of life.” The rest of the business name relates to the services offered and the therapeutic approach used with young children, play therapy. As such, Wellspring of Life Counseling and Play Therapy Center, PLLC (WOL for short) was established. Over the past 12 years, Dr. Villarreal-Davis has continued to expand and moved to four different suites within the same office buildings. She starting out with only 180 square feet of office space in her solo practice to now having over 2,800 square feet of office space in her group practice of 12 counselors and 5 supportive office staff. 

Here at WOL, our counselors come from diverse backgrounds and have a wide range of experiences.
