Take the stress out of your search.

Connecting with a therapist you trust in NYC can feel like a wild-goose chase. But it doesn't have to.


Our Story

Following her own therapist search and working in outpatient clinics as a social worker for two years, Alyssa realized that the amount of choices that exist online can keep people away from therapy. Knowing how therapists differ and what different psychotherapy jargon really means is an art form (or, calls for a Master's degree).

In June 2017, Alyssa launched My Wellbeing. Ever since, we've infused our knowledge of therapeutic theory and practice into everything we do to take the time and emotional stress out of connecting with a compatible therapist in NYC. We are working toward a world where going to therapy is normal, encouraged, enjoyable, and accessible. 


How We Are Different

As the only company in NYC specializing in therapist matchmaking, after completing our brief questionnaire, you receive one therapist match at a time, directly to your inbox.

We prevent the anxiety of endless scrolling and unanswered emails. We match you with your therapist based on things like fee, technique style, location, demographic information, and more. We remove jargon from our matching process to ensure that even if you don't know exactly what you are looking for, we connect you with a strong fit.


Interpersonal Support

Should your first match not feel right for any reason, we are here to help. Reply to the email you received, complete our questionnaire again, or reach out to connect@mywellbeing.com any time to discuss what you'd like to change and to receive your next match.

We encourage you to schedule your free phone consultation with your therapist to evaluate your fit. Once you connect with a human who you resonate with, who helps you feel seen and heard, the relief begins.

Our 2018

Fast forward one year, over 10 corporate partnerships with organizations like Birchbox and The Muse, and over 2,000 therapist matches later, and we're more certain than ever just how important chemistry and rapport are in ensuring you get the most out of your therapy.

Over 84% of the over 2,000 clients we helped find their therapist last year did not know what type of therapy to look for. That's where we come in.


How Will I Know If I Meet the Right Therapist?

We work with therapists who offer free phone consultations, so you can gauge your fit risk-free. We recommend one match at a time to reduce choice anxiety as much as possible. We work with you through as many matches as you need until you feel confident moving forward.

To ease your way, we regularly sharing therapy-related content on our blog and social (@findmywellbeing) from clients like Michelle sharing about their experience in therapy and from therapists like Gabbie sharing about how therapy works and why they do what they do.
