Greenspace uses research and data to match you with the best possible therapist.
Therapy is the process of working with a trained specialist who can apply scientifically validated procedures to help you develop healthier, more effective habits. There are several approaches to therapy that help individuals work through their problems. Research has shown that therapy is the most effective treatment for common conditions like depression, anxiety and stress.
The results of therapy are sustainable and tend to last longer than medication, without the same risk of side effects.
Therapy is a collaborative process based on the relationship between an individual and a therapist. It should therefore be no surprise that a strong fit between patient and therapist is the most important predictor of a positive outcome in therapy.
Greenspace uses evidence-based tools and predictive analytics to intelligently match you with a therapist that is best suited to your specific needs.
Taking 8-12 minutes to complete, the questionnaire assesses your symptoms and challenges to ensure you are matched with the most appropriate therapist.
Our supportive care team helps guide you through the process. You can choose to schedule an intake call or correspond by email.
Your case manager will identify the right match for you and book your 1st appointment in as early as 48 hours.
With guidance from your therapist, you can digitally track your progress through therapy. If you were referred by your primary care provider, you can keep them updated as well.

Thank you for checking in. The match was spot on. We connected immediately and are already deep into dealing with the pertinent issues. Greenspace is filling a vital need and I am letting people know. Your response time, follow through, intake abilities and sensitive approach make taking action on mental and emotional health issues far more effective and accessible. Thank you and carry on.
Thanks so much for reaching out! I had a great appointment, and have booked a follow up appointment as well! The only feedback I have is all positive! I would like to thank you for all the follow-ups you've done, and all the care you've put in to ensuring all my needs are met. I don't think I would've been able to find a good match trying to do research on my own, I would've probably been overwhelmed by the options, which would've probably caused me more negative feelings and I may have even given up. I've also recommended Greenspace to a friend who was able to find help through it, and I intend on singing its praises for a while! Thank you so much.
I have actually seen Caren twice now, and I like the way our relationship is shaping up so far. I think we are a good fit from what I can tell. I really appreciate my experience with Greenspace so far, before I was introduced to it by my friend finding a therapist felt like searching for a unicorn. It was extremely discouraging and made me even more depressed and felt more hopeless. I think this is a really great organization that has been created here and I would personally recommend it to anyone. Thank you!
My first session was everything I had hoped for! Sarah is very easy to talk to for me and has thus far made me feel like I can trust her with any information that I share with her about my experiences. She understands that I want to see results and is already foreseeing how I can get there by making plans to do EMDR at my next session. She is thoughtful in her responses, makes me feel heard and approaches her thoughts on my experiences in a way that challenges my perception yet keeps me comfortable.
Thank you again for your care and efforts to finding me a perfect fit. You picked up just from our intake call that I may need someone who deals with trauma (when I didn't know that myself) and it turns out that I do. Because of that, I do attribute this success to you. I'm very grateful that my I connected with Greenspace.
I'm really happy with Sandra and feel really comfortable with her. I'm really impressed with the Greenspace experience. I felt really comfortable also speaking on the phone with you. I'm happy that my doctor referred me to the service. I hope Greenspace can continue and help others too connect with a good therapist for them. Thanks!
I am happy with who I matched with and plan to continue to see them. The feedback on my experience is very positive. Having had to wait weeks and weeks to see a therapist through a doctor's referral in the past, it’s amazing that an organization like Greenspace exists and not only helps you find someone fast, but someone who is a good fit for you. I’ve already recommended Greenspace to a few people.
My first appointment was really fantastic and I think Natasha is a great fit for me. Thank you for helping me find such a great therapist match. She’s really fluid in methodology/approaches and really wants to use a hybrid approach to help me live the best life possible that’s in line with my values. We’re talking about using a mix of Mindfulness and CBT as well as introducing ACT into her work with me. Our first session already felt like it made a huge difference in my quality of life and the relationships I choose to cultivate. Thank you again for listening to me and taking into account what I needed in a therapist.
Sam has had 2 appointments now. He is very comfortable with Amanda so this is definitely a good fit. This process has been great because it was easy and quick. I was so happy to find my son some help very quickly. Your help in facilitating this whole process was great too. You made it stress free.

Session fees are determined by the therapist and range from $100 to $250 (depending on the type of therapist - e.g social worker, psychotherapist or psychologist).
