Wald began her career as a clinical social worker treating adults, children and adolescents in inpatient and outpatient mental health settings. Wald noticed a profound shift in how people search for personal connections and meaningful practices to nourish their mind, body, and spirit. She observed the acute challenge these stressed people faced finding practitioners who could accommodate their busy schedules. As a result, Wald founded Namaste New York to offer unique and personalized wellness concierge services, consulting, curation and delivery in the comfort of the clients’ homes. Today, Namaste New York serves a vast and influential clientele of high-performing business leaders and celebrities, as well as children, families and individuals coping with chronic illness.
