Therapist (Social Worker)

Our therapists make an enormous impact on our patients in a variety of ways. Through our Guided Therapy program, you’ll have the opportunity to reach a wide range of patients.

Our guided therapists help patients by employing proven online protocols. Working remotely and asynchronously, you’ll guide clients through a customized journey that may include a series of established readings, activities, and webinars aimed at addressing specific situations: things like anxiety, depression, and other common presentations. You’ll also respond directly to client messages within 2 business days, providing specific guidance and answering questions. Cases last a maximum of 12 weeks but may finish sooner.

As a live therapist, you’ll be a practitioner using our platform. Patients sign up using our online interface, and over the course of 8 weeks, you’ll steadily build your case load. Our platform supports video calls, and automates scheduling and billing, which means you’ll be able to focus on patients.

You’ll never be alone: our clinical consultation network has years of experience helping patients and clinicians succeed. Whether you’re looking for help getting started on the platform or configuring guided treatment plans for patients, you’ll have all the support you need.
