Talkspace - I think all of us are dealing with stress right now, whether it’s the isolation, canceled summer plans or economic stress. We all have something on our minds, and it’s important to talk it out. Talking helps, plain and simple. Talkspace online therapy helps you do just that. Match with a licensed therapist from the comfort of your home and get the support you need on your own schedule. Talk to your therapist 24/7 from your computer or phone and hear back daily. One month on Talkspace costs about the same amount as a single in-person therapy session. But with Talkspace you can send unlimited messages to your therapist and they’ll engage with you at least five days a week. Talkspace therapists have experience treating depression, anxiety, substance abuse, and much more. It’s secure and private using the latest encryption technology to store client info.
