Our co-founders Christine and Marc introduce the new Resilience Lab
We’ve spent over two years building Resilience Lab, and in that time, our team has grown to include 85 therapists who have conducted over 40,000 therapy sessions.

Everyone experiences shame. But what most people probably don’t realize is that there are 2 kinds: Regular shame vs. Core shame.
Shame is that excruciating feeling that signals we fell short of who or what we wanted to be in the eyes of another.
