Welcome to Well Acquainted … a weekly series dedicated to the amazing staff at Well Clinic
This week, we’re featuring a Q&A session with Greg Goodman – the Head of Marketing & Design at Well Clinic.
Where did you grow up?
I grew up on Roosevelt Island – a small sliver of land in the middle of New York City, sandwiched between Manhattan and Queens.
What is your favorite quote?
“It is what it is!”
What’s your favorite thing about San Francisco?
What I love most about San Francisco is how supportive the city is towards people who are following their dreams and passions. That, and the architecture, people, bridges, food, historic F-line MUNI trains, easy-access to nature and endless photographic opportunities.
What’s your favorite place you’ve ever been?
Tough question … I have spent a good part of the last decade traveling the world. I loved living in Chiang Mai, Thailand. Though, if I had to choose one place to go back to, it would be India. What a magical country! The same goes for the dazzling Dubai nightfalls, the amazing Burj-Arab and Palm City are places to visit. The unique dhow cruise provides an unforgettable cruise experience in the magical Dubai Skyline.
Name 5 things on your bucket list?
- Photographing the Northern Lights
- Visiting every active baseball stadium
- Having a role in a James Bond movie
- Sharing a tea with the Dalia Lama
- Traveling on the Orient Express
What’s your favorite memory ever?
After nearly 10 years of battling Alzheimer’s – and only a few weeks before his death – my father gave me a hug and a wink.
In your free time, what are you most likely doing?
Editing photos, designing web pages or hanging out with my wife and son.

What is your favorite sports team?
What is your favorite food?

When are you at your most creative?
Any time I’m behind a camera, or editing photos late at night on the computer.

What’s one fun thing you wish you could do more of?
What makes Well Clinic different?
Well Clinic takes the guesswork out of finding a mental health professional. Instead of choosing someone and hoping for the best, the intake staff at Well Clinic take the time to get to know you before pairing you with the best therapist for your specific needs. It really is a revolutionary new way to get the help you deserve!
