Our Story

Founders Rachel Stewart and Elizabeth Muniz met while working in the mental health field. Not long after, they became close friends with the shared dream of providing quality services through an integrative approach to overall health and wellness. They worked diligently to make that dream into a reality and that’s when Thrive Therapy was born.

At Thrive Therapy we believe that each client presents with unique needs and strengths. Focusing on such strengths and building upon past successes is essential for them to thrive. Using a collaborative based approach, the therapists at Thrive Therapy will work with each individual, helping them uncover their full potential.
