Some of our Specialists


My favorite conversations on Basis involve helping people find balance between work and personal life. I just genuinely care about the well-being of others and learning about their lives. Outside of Basis, I love yoga and traveling.

Talk to Brittany


I joined Basis because I love getting to know people. Sometimes it’s not easy opening up to friends and family, so I enjoy helping any way I can. In my spare time I enjoy volunteering, reading historical fiction and spending time with my dog.

Talk to Anisha


I’ve moved all around the US because of work and family commitments, and Basis gives me a way to connect with people wherever I am. Being a Specialist is a huge part of my life, but I also love watching sports and trying new restaurants.

Talk to Allie


Problems are rarely as daunting as they seem, and my favorite part of working with Basis is being there for people during those times. It’s incredibly rewarding to act as a sounding board and an objective person to talk to.

More helpful than talking to a friend

A Basis Specialist is a solid, dependable person who happens to be outside your inner circle. A confidant who doesn’t just listen, but hears you out. They’re trained to ask the right questions that push and prod you to look at things differently, with a fresh perspective. No judgment, just a conversation focused on you.

When life happens, you can rely on Basis
