About Us

At Discover and Change we have seen the problems and challenges people face in their own lives as well as in their families and relationships. Many people that we know personally are struggling to find happiness in their lives and are looking for help. Yet, they don’t feel comfortable seeing a therapist or doctor. Seeing this need we have worked together to create an online safe environment where people can come and discover what they need to do to find and achieve lasting change in their lives and their relationships. Below you can read a bit more about us and why we are so passionate about serving you in our company.

Our Connection

The three of us first connected when we worked for a company called MyExpertSolution which specialized in digital life skills training. Recognizing a mutual passion to create technology to help people change their lives, Kevin and Stephen decided to form Discover and Change. Later, Allen joined the team as Chief Executive Officer. Using assessments, we can evaluate people’s current situations and deliver personalized unique recommendations that are specific to that individual based on the assessment. Our goal is to help people discover what they need to do and actually change for the better.
