We have decades of experience in mental health as licensed psychotherapists and writers, and since we've been in therapy ourselves, we offer an extra dose of empathy and relatability to all our content.

Everything you read on Best Therapists is reviewed by a licensed therapist, so you know that the information you're reading is up-to-date and clinically correct.

Our mission is to provide high quality mental health education that doesn’t read like a textbook, so although we only reference peer-reviewed psychological and medical journals, trusted media outlets, esteemed mental health experts, and reputable mental health organizations, we want you to feel like managing your mental health isn't intimidating. That's why we'll keep our tone casual, GIFs on-point, and stories personal.
