Is Emote Therapy Secure?

Who are your therapists and how qualified are they?

All Emote therapists are licensed by the state in which they provide therapy. Each therapist is screened before entering the Emote platform to make sure they are in good standing, and carefully onboarded onto our platform.  There are many different licenses that allow qualified individuals to practice various forms of mental health therapies.

License requirements vary from state to state, and often require a combination of educational, and post-educational residency requirements.  In addition most states require that a post-educational residency include weekly supervision with qualified licensed professionals.  Many states also require taking and passing an examination.

How much does it cost?

  • Interactive Text Based Therapy  – $50 per week
  • 30 Minute Live Therapist Video Session – $40
  • 60 Minute Live Therapist Video Session – $75

Do you take insurance?

Emote Therapists do not take insurance directly, but generally online therapy is a covered expense by most insurance plans.  Most insurance does not typically cover the entire cost of therapy though. In general, we find that when you factor in co-pays, time, and cost of travel to see a therapist in office, our prices are comparable to office-based therapy.
