How can I change therapists?

Because we want you to experience the full therapeutic benefit, we ask you to give your current therapist a chance as it may take some time to get to know him or her. But occasionally, it can happen that someone feels their therapist is not a good fit and we want to make sure that you get the best possible care. We are happy to help you.

It’s easy to request another therapist through your account page:

From the website: 

1. Log into our website directly at using a web browser
2. Once logged in, click on your username in the upper right corner of the screen. This will bring up a new menu. Click on "My Account."
3. In the “Rooms” section, go to the row with the word “Therapist”, then Click on “Change” found on the right side of that row just next to your current therapist's name. 

For iOS / Android:

1. Log into the Talkspace app with your email address and password
2. Once logged into your private room, select the menu icon, three lines on the left side of the screen, or slide to the right to find the menu where you can select "My Account" or "Settings"
3. On the My Account or Settings page select “ Change Therapist.”

These steps will open a Wizard that will guide you through a couple of quick steps to submit your request. New matches should be posted in your room shortly.
