Working as an online therapist for Talkspace has not only enabled me to work remotely and enjoy the freedom from an office, but also to challenge my professional skills with the variety of clients and situations not always seen in the face-to-face setting. The collaborative therapy team is unparalleled and I am a better therapist due to my Talkspace experiences!
–Regina, Talkspace Therapist
I have worked in this field for over 25 years, with many different agencies and companies and my own private practice. One of the things I really appreciate about Talkspace is how they really try to honor each therapist’s personal diversity. Talkspace administration and supervision really embrace the premise that no one therapeutic protocol works for everyone. Here at Talkspace, different techniques are really key to helping people on their personal therapeutic journey.
