Grateful Heart Holistic Therapy Center San Francisco


At Grateful Heart Holisitic 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 psychotherapy approaches.

Guided by these values, we provide:

  • Psychotherapy for children, teens, adults, couples, families, and groups
  • Internships for pre-licensed MFT clinicians
  • Educational opportunities for mental health practitioners and the community-at-large.


Grateful Heart Holistic Therapy Center was founded in 2006 by Mary Owen, LMFT, an adjunct professor and a clinical supervisor for Marriage and Family Therapist Interns and Master’s students from JFK University in Pleasant Hill, California and a clinical supervisor at California Institute of Integral Studies in San Francisco. She noticed that there is little preparation for Masters Psychology students and interns who want to learn the business of starting a private practice at the same time they earn their required supervised hours before becoming licensed Marriage and Family Therapists. She wanted to pass on the opportunity for select interns to learn more about holistic healing and to begin forming their own clientele and a network of referral sources to sustain them when they become licensed therapists.
