Lead Developer / CTO


Why MyWellbeing?

MyWellbeing is a technology platform that helps 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.
