We are a nonprofit community counseling center, committed to expanding access to supportive services for marginalized populations that facilitate growth and wellbeing. We are equally committed to nurturing restorative-minded clinicians toward licensure.



To expand access to quality mental health care for marginalized communities across the state of California.


We deliver individual, couple, and family therapy. We also provide a unique set of programs and groups to marginalized communities that support mental health.


Our services have always been available in person and online. Due to COVID precautions, we have resolved to move all services online and will resume in-person services when our climate is very different.


Our services are provided by culturally competent therapists who are a part of our Clinical Training Program. Our services are available across virtual platforms that protect all participants.

Our Story

GROWURPOTENTIAL was envisioned by Meisha Thrasher to become a healing justice organization that transforms mental health for marginalized folx. When invited to co-create this vision Dena Schwimmer and David Royal Brown both said yes. We have evolved into more than the vision and our investment is a legacy we are all proud of. While Dena has transitioned away from daily operations, this agency could not exist without her dedication and support.


GROWURPOTENTIAL launched our Clinical Training programs in 2016. We launched our Youth Resilience Program and our Resilient Teacher programs in 2017 and have maintained a partnership with Inglewood School District since then. We are honored to be considered valuable partners to a host of organizations and individuals that trust in our mission.

While our community programs continue to expand we call on the community at large to invest in our approaches to destigmatizing mental health care.
