Thrive was founded in 2005 by the husband and wife team, Clarke Tanner and Tara Cattaneo out of
for helping people and a desire to assist others in reaching their potential.
Our mission was to create a unique company that would promote health and wellness and assist our patients, clients, and team members to thrive. How we practice and guide our clients to achieve success, has developed from years of experience, continual study, and overcoming life challenges.
Tara and Clarke, both learned to value health and to be active throughout their youth and as
collegiate athletes. Shortly into Clarke’s career he experienced a back injury. This was not helpful for his
work or the ability to continue to lead the active life style he valued. This experience was frustrating,
at times scary, and ultimately enlightening.
The process of working back to health, gave insight on how to most effectively recover from injury, an appreciation for multiple contributing factors to a problem, established the importance of the mind-body connection, and sparked a continued desire to develop better ways to help people do what they love and to thrive.
Essential components to being healthy and making progress, is understanding principles of self-development, effective strategies for goal achievement, and proven methods for achieving success.
We have integrated these concepts into our practice and the services we offer to better help our clients live healthy, active lives, and to reach their potential.
We have continually strived to improve, created a comprehensive wellness program, and have assembled a team of talented individuals who are committed to our mission of helping you reach your goals. We are here to empower and guide you on your path to improved health and achieve success.

Finding Thrive truly was an answered prayer from God for me! I am doing wonderful now with my back and my knees are getting there too. I can’t thank you enough. I have only worked with Clarke during therapy at Thrive, but I really welcome and enjoy how he takes the time to really listen to your issues, concerns and questions and then he thoroughly addresses those needs. He does an excellent job of explaining the root cause of your issues to you. Not stuffy or uncomfortable at all. He goes out of his way to make you feel welcome and at ease. Very welcoming!
I just wanted to say that I cannot thank you all enough for how much you have helped me. I experience my acute pain MUCH less often and when I do it is much less terrifying as I can easily breath through it. You folks completely changed my life from day one. When I started coming I had little hope because PT has offered me NO improvement with my back issues in the past but I now have renewed faith in what PT can do. I feel like you have given me something none of the many, many doctors I have seen have come close to…results. My problems are still there in some respects and some will never change (like my lung damage due to my sarcoidosis) but I never could have dreamt of results that changed my life so positively so quickly. I now feel like I can get on with living my life and most importantly I NO LONGER FEAR BEING LEFT ALONE WITH MY 21 MONTH OLD DAUGHTER and that is the best thing that ever could have happened.
I know all too well, that in today’s medical climate, I have to be my own captain, taking full
responsibility for my own health. I will call the practitioners at Thrive top-notch navigators;
professionals who listen deeply, draw upon their expertise, and design a plan of action,
specific to my needs, for us all to work on together.
And all the while, an atmosphere of care and respect fills the entire office. This has been my consistent experience with this practice for the last four years. It is my privilege to recommend them, one and all.
