Christy Desai - Co-Founder, CEO & LMFT of Okay Humans
After unsuccessfully trying to outrun the stress of life, Christy Desai finally looked for a therapist in hopes of catching her breath. What started as “3-5 sessions” turned into years of deep inner work. Her own experience turned into a personal mission to help other people feel better, stronger, and more alive. Christy returned to school to pursue a masters in clinical psychology as well as become a licensed marriage and family therapist.
Being on both sides of therapy, as a client and a therapist, Christy saw how antiquated the process was for people to start therapy. She became determined to find a way to eliminate the barriers of entry to seeking therapy which led to the creation of Okay Humans. Okay Humans is a completely fresh approach to face-to-face talk therapy dedicated to modernizing and destigmatizing the entire experience around therapy.

Beauty and The Brain: What's LOVE got to do with it?
How can we share that we live with mental illness to a new relationship? When is the time? What if they reject us? David and I open up about our personal experiences of owning our illness' and introducing Bipolar Disorder to our significant others....and sometimes it's too funny to believe.
Alessandra is a breath of fresh air and this pod is a must listen for anyone dealing with mental health. Positivity matters and so does how AL deals with topics and her guests. She’s just the best. Must listen.
Glad I listened!
A friend recommended I listen to her podcast and I’m glad I listened! I’m curious about mental health and listening to Alessandra and David enlightened me on questions I had but with no answers. Anxious to hear more! Thanks for the emotional support.
Al is so genuine!
i love how Al can speak so freely about mental illness. She’s hilarious and so genuine at the same time. You can feel her free spirit and her drive to help others battle this disorder. She makes you feel like you are not alone.
