About Us

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

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

Our founder Alyssa saw, after her own challenging therapist search and working in outpatient clinics as a social worker for two years, that people feel overwhelmed by the amount of choices that exist online. Understanding how therapists differ and what different psychotherapy jargon acronyms really mean is an art form (or, calls for a Master's degree).

We began with a simple mission: to take the time and emotional stress out of connecting with a compatible therapist. We envision a world where going to therapy is normal, encouraged, enjoyable, and accessible. 

Fast forward one year, over 10 corporate partnerships with organizations like Birchbox and The Muse, and over 1,500 therapist connections, and we're more certain than ever just how important chemistry and rapport are in ensuring you get the most out of your therapy.

It's no secret that chemistry is hard to pin down. When you are searching for a therapist on your own, you may feel stuck with the first (or only) therapist who responds to your voicemail. No more. We work with therapists who offer free phone consultations, so you can gauge your fit risk-free. Though we do recommend one therapist at a time, we work with you through as many recommendations as you need until you feel safe moving forward.

We understand that starting therapy calls for taking a leap. You're investing time, money, and energy into something that may be new, or may drudge up painful emotions. To ease your way, we look forward to regularly sharing therapy-related content on our blog and social, both 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.

We know other things may be top of mind, like "Why doesn't my therapist take insurance?" and "How can I find the right therapist for me?" If you have any questions or concerns, please let us know at connect@mywellbeing.us. We would love to talk it through with you.
