At Grateful Heart Holistic Therapy Center we believe our psychological well-being as humans is intimately tied to the health and sustainability of our families, communities and world. We are dedicated to offering the greater Bay Area just and accessible counseling services that integrate a variety of psychotherapeutic approaches to support the body, mind and spirit of our clients.
Guided by these values, we provide:
- Psychotherapy for individuals, couples and families, including those pursuing alternative lifestyles
- Groups and workshops for varying communities on a myriad of topics
- Internships for pre-licensed clinicians on the track to obtain licenses as MFTs, LCSWs and LPCCs
- Educational opportunities for mental health practitioners and the community-at-large.
Grateful Heart Holistic Therapy Center was founded in 2006 by Mary Owen, a licensed Marriage Family Therapist and adjunct professor and clinical supervisor at JFK University and clinical supervisor at California Institute of Integral Studies. Mary created Grateful Heart to provide opportunities for therapists in training to prepare for licensure and begin their own private practices. Since its inception, the organization has grown to now serve approximately 1000 individuals, couples and families each year. More than 100 clinicians have participated in Grateful Heart’s program, successfully launching their practices as Marriage Family Therapists (MFTs), Licensed Clinical Social Workers (LCSWs) or Licensed Professional Counselors (LPCCs).
