Our purpose at the Getting to Happy Wellness Studio is to explore mental health through the lens of performing arts and to use the arts to address the mental health stigma, particularly in Black and communities of color, everywhere. 

"We are all worthy of telling our stories and having them heard. We all need to be seen and honored in the same way that we all need to breathe." - Viola Davis

Our studio is located in downtown Greensboro, a quick walk from the Greensboro Grasshopper Stadium and within walking distance to the Hyatt and Marriott Hotel. Our creative space is a blank canvas that offers a relaxing feel and is perfect for your next event. The possibilities are endless.

Staged Readings


Getting to Happy Wellness is proud to produce staged readings of African American playwrights, poets, and other performing artists. We hope to support the eradication of ending the stigma surrounding mental health in our community.


"I choose to reflect the times and situations in which I find myself. That to me is my duty. And at this crucial time in our lives when everything is so desperate. How can you be an artist and not reflect the times?" - Nina Simone

Sometimes, life hurts. It's scary. It's frustrating. It's complicated. It's broken. It's lonely. It's not fair. It's changing... always changing. We'll journey with you, step by step, on your road to healing, recovery, and getting to happy. We want to honor the courage it takes to seek counseling and make sure that finances never get in the way of healing and growth. We are proud to offer affordable, quality individual, family and group therapy.

You may be seeking counseling for a wide variety of reasons, from coping with major life challenges, family and relationship conflicts, to dealing with stress, depression or anxiety, to simply desiring personal growth and greater self-knowledge.

We look forward to providing a safe, supportive and therapeutic space where we can collaborate and work at your own pace to help you reach your counseling and life goals. In our work together it is our hope, wish and prayer that you will feel more empowered, better understand yourself, your family, others and the world around you. Because you're worth it.
