President and chief operating officer of the pioneering online therapy platform Talkspace, Mark Hirschhorn directs the work of a company dedicated to providing high-quality, affordable, and confidential mental health services. The platform’s 1 million clients have access to trained, licensed therapists specifically matched to them. Mark Hirschhorn and his team have structured Talkspace to respond to the unique needs of each client, all within private and secure online therapy rooms, videoconferences, messages, and chats.
Talkspace has received top ratings directly from its clients. In one personal testimonial posted on the platform’s website, a client noted that their therapist was the most compassionate and effective therapist they had ever encountered, with a genuine desire to get to know them and understand their individual needs.
Another client, a first-time user of mental health therapy services, wrote that their Talkspace therapist provided helpful new insights and suggestions that the client would never otherwise have thought of. Another client stressed the effectiveness of the real-time Talkspace environment, which allowed them to communicate information to their therapist as issues arose instead of having to wait for an appointment and the possibility of having forgotten things that would have been important to bring forward.
