Talkspace is an online sex therapy company that is based in New York. There are mobile applications available for the service, so it is available for anyone, day or night, right on their mobile phones.
Along with his wife Roni, Oren Frank founded the web site in 2012. By introducing the site as an app for Iphones and Androids, he allowed it to be something that could be accessed no matter where a person was. Read more about Oren Frank at haaretz.com
Oren Frank’s idea was a challenge to traditional therapy and therapists. For some, it changed the way therapy was conducted. Rather than sitting in a chair or lying on a couch in an office to talk with a therapist, it is now being done on line, and on cell phones. This is quite a change from the traditional method of ‘going’ to therapy.
Then in 2015, the idea changed to an even better type of therapy: they found a method to include couples in the on line sessions and on the cell phones. Couple therapy had become available in the same manner as one on one therapy.
Oren Frank felt poeple had become so dependent on social mdedia, that it was ruining relationships, rather than enriching them. In order to address this issue, Oren Frank began a program on Talkspace called “Social Media Dependence Therapy.” For the first time, the issue of social media was being addressed on social media, so to speak. It is a 12 week program of therapy available for people on Talkspace. It helps them address the issue of social media addiction step by step. This is an amazing development for therapy sessions.
Available to anyone who is 18 or over, this is a revolutionary way of ‘going to therapy.’ It is available on video calls, video chats, and plain straight chat on tablets, laptops, computers, and cell phones.
