About Us

Embrace Near Access, Brighten Your Mind.

Empowering individuals to take charge of their brain health for life.

As a mental health clinician, I have seen firsthand the inadequacy for current treatment options to serve every patient. While medications are the first-line treatment for depression, there is a huge unmet need to go beyond the one-size-fits-all approach. Since 2009, I have led multiple translational studies focused on treating patients with near-infrared light for mood and anxiety disorders. It’s tremendous that we can now make this effective, safe therapy available for anyone.

Brain health is a huge 21st century public health challenge and any effective, meaningful solution must start by making care accessible. We have successfully translated our wearable from device form factor to clothing form factor. That is only the beginning. We aim to build the world’s largest PBM digital platform where providers can meet and treat patients virtually.
