We love to swim, bike, read, and hike. We enjoy jazz and classical music.
We are a team of humans with our own interests, talents, and imperfections. By training, we are neuroscientists, engineers, artists, coaches, and organizational psychologists. Some are writers or cultural anthropologists. And yes, one of us is even a comedian.
You could say we are life long learners who highly value mental and emotional health and want it to be more accessible to people. We have a tailored and useful approach to mental and emotional wellness.
