"Our work is to remain curious about the human experience and unlocking our individual and collective possibilities.”

Having confronted addiction in his own life, Koorosh founded Evo Health and Wellness with the vision to break the stigma around mental health and create a world of healthier people, families, and communities.

As a trained therapist, Koorosh integrates a humanistic approach and mindfulness into his therapy and coaching work. At the Matrix Institute on Addictions, Koorosh specialized in working with young adults dealing with drugs, alcohol, and addiction issues. As Director of Mindfulness at Alternatives Behavioral Health, he helped develop a program to support clients to successfully adopt their desired lifestyle, whether abstinence or moderation.
