"East bay therapy was a great experience."

I never was one to give my all to therapy until I met grace. She is a fantastic therapist, very knowledgeable, and supportive. I was able to work true past trauma from my childhood and now I have amazing relationships that I never thought I would have. The location is easy to get to very clean the last time I was there. She has also been following covid protocol and we have still been in contact via face chat. I would highly recommend!

"Grace is an amazing therapist..."

My partner and I had been rather “stuck” for nearly six months. We were not unhappy, but we were not happy either. Through her premarital survey, my partner and I were able to see more clearly areas that could benefit from growth but also areas in which we excelled. She gave us affirmation that we needed to keep feeling like our choice to be together was a positive decision and also gave us hope;
