Minagrace Drake is a registered Marriage and Family Therapist Intern with a Master’s degree in Counseling Psychology from John F. Kennedy University. She completed her undergraduate degree at Santa Clara University.

Minagrace’s practice is ideal for anyone ready to stop repeating the same unhealthy relationship patterns. Clients learn to finally make themselves a priority, set and keep healthy boundaries, heal childhood wounds, better manage emotions, use their voice with confidence, and claim the love they desire and deserve.

Anxiety can be challenging for anyone. Add to it the social pressures and spotlight of social media, and anxiety can be especially challenging for today’s teens. Minagrace enjoys working with young people who struggle with anxiety- especially around social issues. She helps teens understand anxiety and provides helpful tools so they can manage it better and move beyond its limitations. 

Minagrace has a passion for working with couples- teaching communication skills partners can start using right away. Couples are transformed as each person identifies the unconscious, ineffective ways they try to connect (often rooted in their childhood wounds) which only create more distance and disappointment. Partners learn to support each other in avoiding these pitfalls and losing strategies so they can experience true intimacy and understanding. 

When working with families, she addresses underlying tensions, recovery from family ruptures, and deepening connection. 

Minagrace began her therapeutic career as a Grief Counselor at Hospice of the Valley. Her professional background includes working seven years in full-time ministry leadership. Minagrace gives her all to her therapeutic work. In addition to powerful insights and practical tools, clients can anticipate a lot of laughter and feel-good moments.
