Jay Godfrey’s psychedelic therapy fascination and exploration came after the realization that traditional talk therapy did not get to the root of his stress. After working with physicians and shamans, reading dozens of books and papers, and speaking with thought leaders, Jay wanted to help others in similar situations.
Nushama was born from Jay’s desire to work with the most experienced physicians and business minds to create treatment alternatives and build infrastructure for the future of psychedelics.
Jay spent 15 years as CEO of his namesake “Jay Godfrey” fashion brand, sold on five continents at Saks, Neiman Marcus, Nordstrom, and Bloomingdales, and worn by Jennifer Lopez, Viola Davis, Ashley Graham, and Laverne Cox. Prior, he worked at Citigroup in investment banking. Jay graduated from McGill University and Parsons School of Design. He lives in New York City with his dietitian wife, Dara, two beautiful daughters, Allegra and Bardot, and kitten, Maple.
