At The Happy Hour, we are rewriting the rules on mental wellness. We are modernizing what it means to go to therapy and coaching by reframing the experience and how we talk about mental wellness. Our contemporary studio is as approachable and cool as your favorite yoga studio. We have an amazing team of therapists, counselors, and coaches who inspire and empower our guests. Our team shares the belief that mental health is paramount to our total health, and is undoubtedly linked to our physical, emotional, and spiritual well being. All therapists and counselors are trained in our proprietary methods, which are based on cutting-edge concepts, and include frameworks and resources to help our guests live their most fulfilled lives. Therapists and counselors are supported from our management team and have free access to our classes and meditations.
