Since launching TRIPP in 2018, we’ve streamed over 2 million virtual reality-based wellness sessions, tripled our user base, and today announced $11M in funding for a total of $15M — no small feat for a female-founded company in a year when women received only 2.2% of venture capital.

We’re now one step closer to making mental health support more accessible.

But while we’re seemingly focused on matters of the mind, what’s made us successful as the fastest-growing digital psychedelics platform is leading with heart.

During this time of great upheaval due to coronavirus, our recovery community is likely to see an increase in relapse rates, mental health issues and suicides. With the inability to attend 12 Step Meetings, we still need a way to share our experience, strength and hope with each other and with new people struggling with addiction and alcoholism. It gives us purpose and is a cornerstone of our recovery program.

I know a lot of people, not just people in recovery, are afraid and feeling isolated right now. I feel very fortunate to have an active recovery community in my…

Today, I am honored to announce that TRIPP, our adaptive digital health company that develops products to address mental wellness, focus and productivity, together with Sober Grid, the world’s largest mobile addiction recovery community, announced the receipt of a highly-competitive $1.7M “fast track” grant from the National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA). The grant is presented in two phases to streamline the administrative process with the first phase launching immediately under NIDA’s Small Business Innovation Research grant program. Both study phases will take place at Houston’s renowned Memorial Hermann Prevention & Recovery Center.

The 5-Part Daily Practice That Has Changed My Life

I remember sitting in a conference room during the economic crisis of 2008. I sat still, focusing on my breath instead of latching onto the very palpable fear in the room.

By taking a moment to pause, I was able to bring a solution-oriented mindset to that conversation, and my boss turned to me as…

A mindful and joyful approach through the journey of dying

WARNING: Some images may be disturbing to those who are sensitive to images of death.

My husband is dying. He is a man who began his journey in this lifetime with a rough start, stumbled and fell quite a few times before ultimately transforming himself into a quiet compassionate force of nature.
