Whole Family Wellness

Holistic Care for Children and Adults!

Our practice is dedicated to the physical, mental and spiritual health of your whole family. We started as a holistic pediatric office and have now expanded to offer a wide range of holistic services for children and adults.

Who We Are

We are a group of holistic practitioners including integrative pediatricians, an integrative psychiatrist, a clinical psychologist, and a certified nutrition consultant with the common desire of providing comprehensive medical care in a friendly, welcoming setting.

What Makes Us Different

We believe our health is influenced by the unique way in which our individual biochemical and genetic makeup interacts with everything that enters our body and mind. We strive to understand not just the symptoms, but the root causes of health concerns. Our goal is to ultimately heal specific ailments and provide truly preventative health care. We believe in the innate healing capacity of our body and mind. Our role is to facilitate this process through health care that integrates allopathic (conventional western) medicine with complementary and alternative medicine to meet the unique needs of each patient.

Patient Portal

We are excited to provide our patients a Patient Portal, where they can communicate with our staff and practitioners easily and securely via the internet.

Through the Patient Portal you can:

  • Send and receive non-urgent messages with our reception and practitioners.
  • View scheduled and past appointments, and request new appointments.
  • Request medication and supplement refills.
  • View a summary of each visit.
  • Update demographic information.
  • Receive health reminders.

The Patient Portal is accessible from the menu on the top of every page of this website, or by entering the following url into any web browser:

Activate your Patient Portal account today by emailing your request to our reception at:

Whole Child Wellness Is Now Whole Family Wellness!

As our services have expanded over the years to include not just children, but adults as well, it became clear that we needed a more inclusive name. While our name and logo have changed, our location and dedication to providing the best holistic care available to children and adults has not.

We now offer holistic, integrative medical services to children and adults.
We hope you are as excited about this as we are!

What's New

Welcome Dr. Tracy!

We are excited to announce that
Therese Trolan, MD (“Dr. Tracy”)
has joined Whole Family Wellness!

Dr. Trolan is realizing her dream of delivering holistic care for children and families, integrating conventional medical practices with natural medicine in our nurturing environment.

Dr. Trolan graduated with highest honors in nutrition from UC Berkeley, attended Creighton University Medical School and trained in Pediatrics at Los Angeles County at USC and Harbor UCLA. She completed a Pediatric Emergency Medicine Fellowship at Oakland Children’s Hospital and earned a master’s degree in public health from UC Berkeley. Dr. Trolan taught residents and pediatric emergency medicine, has pursued additional training in Integrative Medicine over the last 18 years, and has 8 years of experience in private practice in Santa Cruz. Additional training includes functional medicine, holistic nutrition, homeopathy, herbal medicine, energy medicine, and cranial osteopathy. She is board-certified in pediatrics and completed Dr. Andrew Weil’s Associate Fellowship in Integrative Medicine.

After 5 years at Whole Family Wellness, I am sad to say good-bye to my dear friend and colleague, Dr. Donna Ruiz, as she and her husband relocate to Southern California. While Dr. Ruiz will be missed by all, we have found a fantastic person in Dr. Trolan to fill her very big shoes.

Over the past 10 years, I have developed a unique model of integrative pediatric medicine to care for both well-kids and children with chronic and complex healthcare needs. In our national search for a new clinical partner, we were very careful to find a pediatrician who holds the same core values and philosophy as myself and Dr. Ruiz, and will be able to practice in this same model.

As Dr. Trolan joins Whole Family Wellness, she and I will work closely together as a team to ensure that every family receives the care that they have come to expect and deserve. She will be personally trained by me in our unique protocols and approach to holistic pediatric care. I believe you will be as thrilled to work with Dr. Trolan as I am. Please feel free to call and set up a time to chat with Dr. Trolan regarding any questions you might have or to get to know her better.

Dr. Trolan is now available for scheduling well visits, urgent care visits, and consultations starting June 16, 2015. We are confident all of our families will be delighted with Dr. Trolan’s care!
