Created By A Stanford-Trained MD

As a practicing primary and urgent care physician, I see every day how the stresses of the modern world can challenge our mental health and wellbeing.

Now more than ever, during an unpredictable global crisis, we need to come together to support one another.

Our Methodology

Our methods are not only humanistic - they are also grounded in psychology. Each Curio Circle has a personalized growth and learning program that is custom to its members. In addition, all Curio Guides practice inclusivity, non-judgment, and unconditional positive regard.


We find the best facilitators to lead our circles. All guides practice our core values of inclusivity, open-mindedness, and kindness.


Through a 4-week program, you will learn, with the help of your guide, skills for living a better and happier life. 


Your circle is not formed at random. We carefully consider your specific needs before we choose your guide and other circle members.


Outside of your sessions, you will gain practice through take-home exercises and a 24/7 Curio Community.


Once you're matched to your circl, your guide will create a custom program based on trusted resources and humanistic practices.


Curio will grow and evolve based on the world's changing needs and constant feedback from you.

Curio Circles

Join us for weekly meetings with curated circle and access to a 24/7 community. Each circle is matched with an experienced guide, such as a therapist or coach.


Programs are "Pay What You Can" to extend access to those suffering from financial hardship during this time.
