Featured in The New York Times, The Wall Street Journal, and more, Talkspace, the leading online therapy company, is growing! We are inviting qualified mental health professionals to join our networked platform of hundreds of therapists.
With the support of Dr. Irvin D. Yalom, Professor Emeritus of Psychiatry at Stanford University, as an advisor, co-founders Oren and Roni Frank have created a tight network of forward-thinking, dedicated therapists who recognize the potential of leveraging digital communications as a channel for psychotherapy. The phenomenal growth of the company in the past year has created a new opportunity for qualified therapists to train on the platform and begin accepting clients.
Talkspace connects people to mental health professionals through the Talkspace website and mobile app. Therapy is provided through asynchronous and live text, audio, and video messaging. Talkspace therapists find the Talkspace system to be secure, full-featured, and efficacious. Talkspace users appreciate the convenience, anonymity, and affordability of Talkspace compared with traditional face-to-face office visits. The platform has increased access to mental healthcare to millions of people for whom therapy was inaccessible before.
