How Talkspace Is Bringing Therapy Into The 21st Century


Everyone's feeling strange since the great flood of events stopped and the world was thrown into one huge remote experiment. Remote is the perfect word for these times. Many of us are feeling disengaged, sleep-deprived, stressed, and blocked in terms of productivity.

Such are the results of the uncertainty, and transitions of 2020 . . . where every day is Blursday. Ironically, the very devices and screens that can leave us feeling distanced and deprived of contact can also help us connect.

Today's tech-driven world makes telehealth services easily accessible and affordable - including online therapy. The popular monthly subscription service Talkspacehas several tiered options for online counseling and therapy sessions.

With thousands of 5-Star Reviews, Talkspace connects you to carefully vetted therapists who have extensive training, quality credentials, and clinical experience. Live, real-time voice and video sessions can be scheduled. There's also unlimited messaging therapy - including audio, video, and text messages - via their website or the Talkspace mobile app.

Most of us only have so many self-care dollars, so it can be a struggle to find a therapist that fits your budget. With the price of one in-person visit typically running $150 and up, Talkspace's plans range from $65 to $100 per week - significantly less than traditional therapy.

HIPAA-compliant, Talkspace works with a wide variety of health plans, and Employee Assistance Programs to make access to therapy economical and available for everyone. There are never any hidden fees - you can cancel at any time.

There's no arguing that the psychological toll of 2020 has created widespread emotional health issues such as stress, anxiety, and depression.

But, we humans not only have the ability to bounce back, we can build towards a positive life on the other side of these tough times. How wonderful if we could emerge from this stronger - with a confident, newfound sense of self?

So skip the office visit, a Talkspace therapist is here to help.
