Our Story

Learn about our founders, our team and our mission.

We wanted to help more people. We were troubled when anxiety sufferers couldn’t schedule appointments due to a shortage of psychologists and therapists that provide the treatment that really works for anxiety.

So, we developed a new program from the ground up. For the past four years we’ve been crafting our lessons to be personal, encouraging, impactful, and based on the fundamentals of CBT, which can be truly life-changing. Because, at the end of the day, we all just want to learn to live."
