Update on Talkspace
I mentioned last week that I was considering a Talkspace subscription. They don’t accept many insurance companies at the moment, which is a bummer. Still, I decided to bite the bullet and see if my insurance will reimburse me. They’ve always paid for my therapy, so I’m hoping that I will be able to convince them to cover it, given the current circumstances.
I’m pretty happy with it so far. You can text your therapist whenever, and also send voice and video messages. Your therapist replies twice a day, five days a week. You can also pay for regular video sessions if that’s something you’re interested in. I’m excited to see where it goes! And also happy that accessible therapy platforms are on the rise.
