See why more than 1 million people have already talked to a therapist on Talkspace

With Talkspace, you get your own online therapist who is committed to giving you the guidance you need — whether it’s tough love or cheerleading — to help you live a happier, fuller life.

Your Talkspace therapist is a licensed professional, which means he or she (it’s up to you) won’t judge or intimidate. It’s more like having an experienced, supportive presence that knows how to guide your thinking, rather than a well-intentioned friend that takes you out for drinks but gives you so-so advice.

How is Talkspace different than traditional therapy?

Traditional in-office therapy can be expensive and inconvenient to schedule. Plus, it can feel embarrassing to bare your soul and be honest in an office.

With Talkspace’s Unlimited Messaging Therapy™, you send text, audio, and video messages to your therapist whenever you want — right from your browser or smartphone.

It’s easier to open up and be brutally honest, because you don’t feel the embarrassment of talking about a sensitive subject in front of a person watching you speak.

It’s much more convenient to type into the room whenever you feel ready — there’s no need to bottle up your thoughts and emotions until your next appointment.

And for only $128/month, you get unlimited text, audio, and video messaging. Compare that to traditional therapy, which can run upwards of $125/hr!

You’ve probably said you would start taking better care of yourself many times before. And there are many alternatives to working with a professional on your mental health. In one way or another, we all do them —

None of these compares to the impact that just a few months of therapy can have on your life

I’m so glad I gave this a chance… The advantage of this format is that I truly do not feel alone. At any time or any place I’ve got my therapist in my phone just a message away.

Talkspace User · September 2014

Talkspace has been a godsend. They matched me with an amazing therapist who genuinely seems interested in me and my problems.

Talkspace User · July 2015

The ability to be able to communicate at any hour and know that my therapist will get the message has been a lifesaver.

Who are our therapists?

Privacy & Security

In the digital age, consumers are smart to ask questions about the security and privacy practices of the platforms they use. At Talkspace, it’s fair to say that we are security-obsessed. Your conversations are encrypted to the highest industry standards, and the data is stored in highly secure data centers (probably more secure than your therapist's office).

In addition, Talkspace therapists are ethically bound to keep your conversations confidential, with a few very rare exceptions (such as if they believe you may harm yourself or others). If you’d like, you’re welcome to stay anonymous by never revealing your full name to your therapist.

Talkspace is advised by Dr. Irvin D. Yalom, Professor Emeritus of Psychiatry at Stanford University, and Dr. Andrew Sekel, Ph.D in Psychology.

Combined, the therapists on our network have many hundreds of years of clinical experience.

Licensed (you can look up your therapist’s license yourself!)

Committed to being available to their clients

Experienced (no interns, nobody that hasn’t completed supervision)

Q

So is my therapist always on call?

A

Not exactly — because our therapists need to eat, sleep, and attend to other professional obligations, they check in to the room twice a day. But you don’t have to wait — simply write out your thoughts and get on with your life!

A

Is there a live service available?

Yes! Depending on the Unlimited Messaging Therapy plan chosen, you can schedule live video sessions with your therapist up to 4 times per month.
