Approximately 50 million Americans experience mental illness each year, but nearly 60% go untreated. Take a step to end the suffering by seeking help from the comfort of your own home. Larkr is a new tele-psychology app that connects you with a licensed therapist via a 50 minute live video session.
**Why Do I Need Larkr?**
Finding a good therapist is hard. Making time and paying for that therapist is even harder. Larkr gets you help right now through our smartphone app so that you don’t have to sacrifice valuable time traveling to a therapist. Larkr has also standardized our pricing to make it significantly more affordable than therapists seeing clients live in their office.
**What makes LARKR different?**
Instead of focusing on text or email therapy like other apps, Larkr believes that communication is as much non-verbal as it is verbal. Our sole focus is on video therapy. We want to emulate the classic therapy experience to be as effective as possible for you. We want you to see real change in your life.
Larkr also allows for multiple people to join a session. So if you’re looking for a marriage or relationship therapist but are having problems getting everyone in the same place at the same time Larkr can be the perfect solution for you.
**How Does it Work?**
Larkr is super simple. Simply download the app, answer a few questions about yourself and what kind of therapist you are looking for and then chose a therapist to connect with. In just a few seconds you’ll be connected live to a licensed therapist ready to help you. You can also schedule your session for a future time and even set up recurring weekly, bi-weekly, or monthly sessions with the same therapist.
**What Does it Cost?**
All Larkr sessions cost $85 and last 50 minutes. We do not have any minimum commitments or monthly subscription plans. Simply use Larkr as little or as much as necessary. Whether you’re going through a rough patch and just need someone to talk to or have some deeper issues like anxiety or depression and prefer to have regularly scheduled weekly sessions, we’ve made our pricing as simple as possible so you’re not pressured to use the app any more or less than is necessary.
To help improve your user experience we are continually making updates to the app. In addition to improvements in speed and reliability, the latest version now includes the following:
- Improved notifications for pending sessions
- Fix for session time duration display
- Incoming session call alert enhancement
We hope you enjoy the latest version of LARKR, and welcome your feedback!!
Ratings and Reviews
This app is pretty worthless. You can’t see if or who the therapists in your area are and when they are available. They just want you to keep playing an endless guessing game to see if you ever match or find someone with an appointment available. It makes no sense to insist on wasting users time. Why don’t they just let you see if there are even any therapists available in your area so I don’t waste time trying to book appointments? Then if there are some available, why wouldn’t you just list their availability and then let the patient choose a time from that. Instead you have people who are trying to seek therapy go through the ridiculous task of continuously selecting different time and dates to see if anything ever becomes available. Absolute garbage. This was clearly not designed with any UX designer or the customer in mind at all.
Cannot Recommend as a Provider
I was a therapist providing services on the Larkr app, but I cannot recommend it for providers or users. The communication function between myself and clients has never worked for me and when I brought it to the attention of the team, my concern has been ignored for weeks with no resolution. I have also not been paid for a session a conducted and again, when I reached out for supoort, I have been ignored for weeks. Talkspace is a much better option in my opinion.
A life saver
I was using other therapy apps and while I appreciate text therapy there really is no substitute for actually seeing and talking to a therapist. The video calls that actually last as long as a regular session make a huge difference and the fact that you don’t have to sign up for a subscription is something I really appreciate!
