High Sensitivity (At TheraThrive, we specialize in gifted & highly sensitive)

In light of COVID-19 (Coronavirus), we are exclusively offering telemental health online video sessions in order to best support our community through this time. We offer personalized care via secure virtual online therapy. With online services we help you (or your child or teen) to feel and function better, just as we would help if you were to meet with us at the office.

We offer ongoing therapy for adults, kids, and teens and also single session appointments, which are sort of like drop-in appointments, for those who only want to meet just one to three times. It’s easy to schedule.

  • We also offer many of our assessment services via video conferencing, and many more of our assessment services will likely become available via video conference fairly soon.
  • It is important to maintain social connections during while we are socially isolating in order to flatten the curve of COVID-19’s impact. Our action oriented online groups for kids and teens work great. 
  • Are you a parent who is working from home and also trying to educate your child(ren)? We understand that it isn’t easy to manage work, the intensity of emotions and also homeschool. We have years of homeschooling and education experience and provide individualized academic and homeschooling support via video conferencing.
  • Parents, consider our weekly 90 minute Homeschooling Parent support group for parents who may have been suddenly thrown into home education. It’s a way to get help from an experienced professional and also build community. You can come every week or just as needed (we welcome single session drop-ins).

Office Care and Outreach

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!
