Coffee & Conversations

We are excited to announce that we will be holding an existential discussion group for teens within the gifted community!

This group will be facilitated by Katie Malone, MA, LPCC, LMFT, and we invite any person age 13-17 to come join our group.


A Small Group

We will keep this group small, between 4-8 participants. This group is geared towards people who are interested in exploring purpose and meaning in life and other existential concerns, while also having some fun and making new friendships!

Meetings will be held at the TheraThrive office, as well as local coffee houses or other casual venues (within easy walking distance from the TheraThrive office). Please provide teen with $8-12 to buy a drink, meal or snack.


We Will Explore Together


This group will explore common themes that come up in the lives of gifted teenagers, and celebrate the gifted experience.

Some topics we might discuss include:

  • existential concerns
  • meaning-making
  • purpose
  • giftedness, intensity
  • identity
  • friendships and relationships
