Has anyone tried Talkspace before? What's your opinion? What can I do to get the most out of it?

I connected with a "matching consultant" last week. It's been about three business days now, and I haven't heard anything back about getting set up with a therapist. I probably should've trialed them before committing $1.5K but c'est la vie I guess.

Also your company might offer Talkspace or a similar program for free. That’s how I’ve gone about trying these apps

Have you thought about using BetterUp? It's not therapy but they might be able to coach you through the issues you're experiencing. I believe the coaches are required to have ICF certification (gold standard) in addition to their own training so you should be in good hands.

*own training = BetterUp's training. Re-reading my comment and realized that it didn't quite make sense.

My company gave it for free, i really enjoyed it, haven’t used it in a while, they matched me with a therapist who we’d each sent a message once a day

I’ve used it; didn’t really care for it. For me an in person session works better.

Matching consultant? It normally just walks you through a set of questions and you pick one of the options presented to you. I wonder if they’re short on therapists still. Definitely reach out again to them.

We have TalkSpace through our EAP program. I used it and had great success, I did have to change to a different provider as the first one wasn't responsive initially as you are experiencing.

After I connected with my provider I had great success with virtual visits.

Did not like it. It felt very transactional, and I met with multiple therapists. Nobody seemed to put forth the effort to get to know me.
