Ratings and Reviews
Unresponsive - No Therapists?
I don’t normally leave reviews, but for this I just had to. I signed up with this a while back, probably about a month and a half ago. At first, I was speaking to the person who matches you to a therapist, they were responsive and helpful. then, as soon as i chose a plan, the marcher no longer responded to me. Then the waiting began. After about 2 weeks of not being matched STILL, I was concerned I was paying 300 dollars for nothing, so i reached out to their customer service. They advised me sometimes it can take a little bit to find a good therapist match for you. I am a patient person, so i thanked them for reassuring me, and continued to wait. it has now been 3 and a half additional weeks, still 0 contact from any therapists. I think if this app wants to truly work, they need way more therapists so people can get the help they need. i tried to do this virtually (therapy) as it works better for my schedule, but now i’m going to have to find something in person, as i can’t seem to be matched online. How unfortunate.

Refund. Me. Now.
Give me all of my money back. I don’t write app reviews, but there is no way to get any type of response from customer service. I was a brand new paying subscriber that needed assistance with a billing/technical issue. I’ve reached out via email multiple times for a week with no response, which is valuable time and money going down the drain as I wait on customer service to respond to what should be a simple request.
After many automated emails, I went to social media dms to try to get ahold of someone. My question could easily have been taken care of with a quick phone call but they don’t offer any type of customer service phone call.
This has created much more stress and frustration on me, all while my paid subscription dwindles down. I was now charged for TWO different subscriptions that Im not using. You’ve been unable to assist me in a simple request so PAY ME BACK….all of it. This “partial refund” automated refund wizard thing isn’t the right approach. I never used your services, only spent time trying to figure out how to get set up correctly!
Take This Advice CS- If you don’t have enough customer service support to handle new clients, pause taking in new subscribers until you can fully serve them. Week long delays and keeping my money is not right. I’m done trying to make Talkspace work for me on my own.
Bottom line - I’ve cancelled my account(s) and I expect Full Refunds now.

NOT SAFE! Please do not use!!!
I paid hundreds of dollars just for my psychiatrist to meet with me once and then to never respond to me again, despite my many attempts to contact her. She prescribed me new medication and then never once followed up on it, which was incredibly unprofessional and unsafe. I then emailed TalkSpace support, who informed me that I couldn’t get a refund, but I could get rematched and spend more money to have another initial appointment. This whole experience took about 3 or 4 months of my time that could’ve been spent getting better. I already have a hard time asking for help, and this only added frustration and exhaustion. Don’t waste your money or your time!
UPDATE: As you can see, Talkspace responded to this review. Don’t be fooled—nothing was done after this response; it’s all for show. Many months later, I was finally able to find a psychiatrist who was committed to helping me. Upon telling her about my experience with Talkspace, she was very concerned and told me that this was extremely unsafe and could’ve been so much worse if I was in a worse place mentally. I was also misdiagnosed and given very incorrect medication, which negatively impacted my life. Please please don’t jeopardize your mental health. For an app that specializes in mental health, this is unacceptable. I am so worried for others who get tricked into using this app. This is not a safe app to use.
