Our Model

Our website is based on an original model of cognitive-behavioral therapy, drawing on modern neuroscience and classical philosophy. We want to help you fully develop: your personality, your work, your relationships. All of these work together to form a meaningful life. We hope to reveal to you what to do right now, in this very moment, to thrive on challenge and become your best self.
