Seeds of Awareness

At our Holistic Counseling Centers, we help you find harmony through genuine connection, mindful inquiry, and guided exploration. Our counselors bring a deeply supportive and empathic presence into the room, empowering you to face fears and overcome obstacles that are hindering you from being your authentic self.

Our vision is a future where emotional intelligence is the norm, where empathy and mindfulness are embedded in our systems, and where therapeutic support is accessible and commonplace.

Fiddleheads is a fun and therapeutic environment that provides social skills instruction and emotional support to neurodiverse groups of children in our vibrant Bay Area Regional Parks.

Our groups and camps are warm, playful, and instructive. Our highly skilled counselors foster deep nourishing connections for the children. Your child will form healing relationships with nature and make new friends, while absorbing social lessons and connecting more deeply to their senses.

Formed in 2010 to support children and their families, Fiddleheads is a holistic, heart centered therapeutic approach to social and emotional learning. Taking the stigma out of therapy, Fiddleheads brings joy, nature, and the real life experience of authentic relationships and presence into the healing process.

Inclusiveness and acceptance are foundational to Fiddleheads structure. Awareness and respect of neuro, cultural, racial and economic diversity, is at the essence of our approach.
