Head of Product

 

Why MyWellbeing?

Current generations are going to therapy more than ever to better manage stress and grow personally and professionally. The problem is that finding the right therapist is really hard.

MyWellbeing solves exactly that—by helping people meet the right therapist for them, while helping therapists build and manage their business.

Alyssa, MyWellbeing’s founder and trained therapist, started MyWellbeing in 2017 because she had a hard time finding her own therapist and knew she was not alone. After helping over 5,000 New Yorkers connect with their therapist and closing its pre-seed round, MyWellbeing is participating this summer in ERA — NYC’s best tech accelerator — and looking forward to expanding its team.
