About Us

Our mission is to support you in becoming the best version of yourself.

We chose the name My Wellbeing because you are your biggest asset.
If your mind is not functioning at its best, your body, work, and relationships won't be, either.
But you are unique, and your care should be, too.

We are a community of therapists and mental health advocates in New York City,
here to help you understand what therapy is and how therapy can help you.

Often, when we are looking for a therapist, we are already in a painful place. The search can be confusing; it's challenging to know where to look and who to trust. We do our best to connect you with the right therapist for you, based on logistics, technique style, and temperament. We are by your side through your search, and will recommend as many therapists as you need to feel safe beginning a therapeutic relationship.

You may be new to therapy. Part of beginnings is learning about therapy and learning about yourself. Hear from Michelle, for example, who convinced herself for years she could handle everything on her own, but realized over time how much letting support in would enable her to grow.
