Co-Founder & CEO
As part of moving to NYC in 2015, I tried to find a therapist and failed—failed for the same reason that the majority of the one in four Americans with a treatable mental health condition such as depression fail to find care. I couldn’t find a therapist that I could afford because 70% of therapists don’t accept insurance. Headway is solving this problem by building the first national network of therapists who accept insurance. Because Headway’s free software for therapists handles all the work to accept insurance, two out of three providers that you’ll find on our platform don’t accept insurance anywhere else.
