Join the Joy Lab Program
The Joy Lab program is an evidence-based, self-guided online program that guides you through the 12 Elements of Joy—from savoring to equanimity. You'll work to boost these elements in your daily life in realistic ways. These elements create a strong foundation that can support your mood in meaningful ways, invite more ease into your days, and that work to uncover and sustain your most natural, joyful state of being.

Henry Emmons, MD
Hi! I’m Henry, an integrative psychiatrist who weaves together mind-body and natural therapies, mindfulness teachings, and other holistic approaches for common mental health problems like depression and anxiety. I don't think healing should stop there though. I am most interested in working with others so that we can all learn to love well and create more joyful lives.
Aimee Prasek, PhD
Hi! I’m Aimee, a digital health and integrative therapies researcher and educator. My work is fueled by the belief that we are all hard-wired for joy and it's our shared purpose to uncover and spread it. I am most interested in sharing accessible tools that help empower others to move out of suffering and uncover their own authentic, joyful self.
