OVER HERE DOING BIG THINGS.
The Better Spot is creating a communal environment, ushering in a culturally humble, destigmatized approach to holistic wellness. Through flex-leases and comprehensively curated spaces for practitioners plus a sundry of on-demand, cost-conscious, holistic services for Clients, The Better Spot is fostering a culture of access and equity in modern-day wellcare.
As I started my journey to becoming a Psychotherapist in 2018 I wanted to do some discovery with current Therapists. I heard a broken record of complaints - Space wasn't affordable, attractive or accessible, cross-industrial community was slim and rising business costs were transferred onto already struggling clientele.
This echo lead me to wonder if mental health therapists were the only ones having this experience. They weren't. Massage Therapists, yogis, apothecarist and on, all expressed the same frustrations. At the same time in my journey companies like WeWork and LinkedIn were thriving, building physical and digital societies for creatives and traditional professionals, but consistently non-medical health and wellness were left out.
Finally, eruptions in the world happened in culture and climate; Women said 'me too', Black people said 'enough', and the planet said no more. With holistic health rapidly losing its stigma due to the grave and apparent need for healing, I took 2.5 years to research and devise a complete wellcare solution for practitioners and the clients they serve, through a vision returned to community, collective well-being and justice over equality.
I founded The Better Spot.
