Martha Thorson, M.A., M.Div., D.Min., Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist 77527


Office Address: 890 Meridian Way, San Jose, CA 95126


My experience includes 20 years of providing therapy for children, teens and adults. Currently I am only working with adults, over 18. In a confidential, supportive context, we can explore your concerns and build on your strengths. If thorny spiritual issues add to your challenges, I have experience and extensive training in integrating spirituality with the realities of life.

I am committed to working with people of all faiths and those with none, with all people of any ethnicity, race, creed, color or sexual orientation. Listening and walking alongside you in your journey. I will work to nurture and pay attention to your inner resources that can provide meaning and healing even in the most challenging of times.

For an initial free phone consultation between 8 am and 8 pm weekdays, you may call to discuss my therapeutic approaches, how we might work together and to clarify whether I might be the right therapist for you.  408-420-7895
