The RISE Story

When founder Melissa Paulsen recognized her small-town community's need for local and accessible therapy services, she started RISE in Anamosa. 

 

Since then, RISE has branched out to multiple locations, school districts, and also has therapists that can virtually serve anyone in Iowa!
