Consultant to TheraThrive
We provide specialized support.
Therapy is a path to healing, and a path that promotes mental health fitness. It can be holistic, and often the healing occurs deep within. As you grow in personal insight, aspects of who you are become clearer and easier to understand. Therapy is a discovery process of finding the meaning you have been looking for. It is about personal growth and opening in awareness. For children, therapy can be a time to be fully heard and accepted, a time and place to play, create, and heal, a space to process memories, thoughts and feelings, and to learn new skills. At TheraThrive, we offer counseling, consultation and assessment for gifted & highly sensitive people of all ages.
We look forward to connecting with you!
TheraThrive is located in the East San Francisco Bay Area, in Lafayette, California, near Walnut Creek, Orinda, Danville and Berkeley. We also offer secure video counseling and consultation services to some California residents who are not able to travel to our office.
