About this app

Talkspace is the most convenient and affordable way to improve your mental health. Get matched with a licensed therapist in your state from the comfort of your device, and message via text, audio, and video.


Tell us your preferences for therapy, and match with one of our therapists in your state the same day. Send your therapist unlimited text, audio, picture, or video messages from anywhere, at any time — you’ll hear back at least once a day, 5 days per week.


Talkspace has been shown to be as effective as face-to-face therapy. In one recent study, 81% of participants felt Talkspace is as effective or better than in-person therapy. In another, individuals who used Talkspace for only 2 months significantly improved symptoms of depression and anxiety. Talkspace has been featured in The Wall Street Journal,, Business Insider, and more.

I waited ages to get connected to someone, and when I did she doesn't work afternoons pst. No issues there, it happens. However I've been trying to pick a new provider for ages and I don't think it's even checking. I don't get any updates or emails that it's even in progress. I looked them up and it looks like they really don't treat their therapists well so even if I ever get matched to someone, I don't know how good the career would be anyways because of that.

Good therapists, terrible business and app. The billing is confusing and not transparent, their technical support is unavailable and non-responsive. I've used the app for two years now and it has only gotten worse over that time. Editing to drop from two stars to one. They billed me this morning for past services then apparently cancelled my Message session, I had a 60 minute appointment with my therapist and they no showed (not sure if that's the app fault or therapist). 2x now it has occured

This rating is primarily for the app because of technical issues on the provider's part which resulted in me never actually having a session. But also because the provider selection required you to select one without seeing their available hours. Once you select one, if they have hours that don't work for you, you're stuck having to select providers until you find one that works for you.
