Therapy that’s there whenever you need it

Every Talkspace user has a secure, private “room” to communicate with their therapist.

Post and reply to messages in your room 24/7 — no need to wait to get something off your mind. Your therapist will see your messages and respond to you throughout the day. (Though if you’re sending messages at 3 AM, you might have to wait until they wake up!)

All communications in your Talkspace room are protected and fully encrypted. You can also set a unique passcode on our mobile app for added security.

Melissa has helped me through a very challenging time in my life and I am emerging feeling whole again. This format for therapy has been perfect as I travel for work and it is hard for me to commit to a face to face session with my schedule. I highly recommend Talkspace and Melissa.

Connect however is most comfortable

We all express ourselves differently—choose a messaging type that feels right for you.

There’s no limit to how many messages you send, and you can review old messages in your room to track your progress and reflect on your insights and discoveries.

Text

Like texting with a trusted friend. Writing out what’s bothering you can give you time to reflect and make sure you’re getting your point across.

Audio

Talking it out has a place too—now, you can send and receive Audio messages with your therapist to make a stronger connection.

Video

See and be seen. Show your therapist how you’re feeling with unlimited video messages. Seeing your therapist’s face (and vice versa) will help deepen your connection even further.

What kinds of things can I discuss with my Talkspace therapist?

Anything and everything: It’s your space to work through whatever’s on your mind.

Frustrated after a long day at work? Struggling with on-going relationship issues?

Our licensed counselors are experts in a wide range of practice areas, from Family Dynamics to Addiction. We’ll help you match with a counselor who understands what you’re going through and knows how to help.

What will my therapist's responses be like?

At first, your therapist will want to get to know you to better understand who you are and what led you to seek counseling.

Once you’ve made a connection, your therapist will respond with helpful guidance and advice. Often, they’ll ask deeper questions to help you see a problem in a new light.

Your therapist will also help you set goals and check-in throughout your time together to make sure there’s room for anything new that you’d like to work on.

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 of place I've got my therapist in my phone, just a message away.
