What is CYA?

Change Your Algorithm is a mental wellness program that offers free 1-hour mental health classes online and in Los Angeles. Our classes are led by certified mental health therapists that provide you with the tools needed to take care of your mind. We also offer a fitness program. Yes, it’s all free. There is no judgement here, just healing.

Welcome to Our Community

Community is a core value of Change Your Algorithm. We take pride in our attendees that come from all different walks of life to improve themselves and their place in the world. Our community, both our peers and our therapists, share common characteristics in self-improvement and self-development because they understand we deserve to become the best versions of ourselves, and we do that by coming together and supporting each other. The CYA community is a safe space of healing and no judgment. Our community celebrates our differences and imperfections while reminding all of us that we are not alone.


We are a community with proven success, and we believe that we can heal together because we are all made of the same matter. Take a look at what our community is saying about us!

“It’s a great feeling when you find others who can “relate” and Change Your Algorithm has done just that by bringing people together to connect.”

“Connecting in a guided group session with a therapist, explores human vulnerability, similarity, and has endless positive outcomes. Thank you CYA!

“My first impression of CYA was how open and comfortable it felt. It was a space where I could say anything without feeling any judgement at all. Free therapy is one heck of a deal!”
