reviews & testimonials

While the conversation around mental health in tech is elevating, it’s still largely unspoken ... As a founder myself, I felt the pressure to project stability and confidence, while genuinely feeling isolated and depressed … Amity gave our Techstars Chicago founders an optional outlet to talk in-confidence with trained professionals, and if it helps even one founder, we consider it a major success.

It was extremely helpful to bring awareness to working through solutions. I think too often everything is go, go, go and it's important to recognize sometimes you need to slow down to move faster and be more efficient.

Shira and Myra are both incredibly intelligent, intuitive therapists who very easily seem to pick up on cues to understand the broader situation.

Shira brings a methodology and framework to the sessions, with very purpose-driven goals and objectives that provided very practical assistance. She also provided skillful and supportive leadership for the difficult questions and emotionally charged issues. Great balance of practical support and challenge.

The number one variable I filter for in early stage investments is the strength, compatibility of, and communication between team members. Having met with thousands of companies over the years, I can say with confidence that it's a relationship that can't be faked. I definitely recommend all founders and cofounder teams work with a therapist such as those at Amity.
