SAN FRANCISCO (PRWEB) November 14, 2017
Pacifica Labs, creator of Pacifica, the #1 mental health mobile app, and therapy practice software Pacifica for Clinicians, announced today the release of its Therapist Directory, which empowers individuals to find the right mental health care provider for them.
“At Pacifica, our mission has always been to ensure that everyone has access to mental health care,” said Dale Beermann, CEO and Co-Founder of Pacifica Labs. “Pacifica for Clinicians already empowers mental health professionals across the country to leverage technology in their practice. The Therapist Directory now bridges the gap between individuals and therapists by allowing users to find these therapists directly from the Pacifica app or through our website.”
Pacifica Labs is the only company to offer both self-help and clinical tools while connecting individuals with therapists. With this release, Pacifica expands its reach to better support people along their mental health journey.
“Pacifica is much more than just an app; it is a unifying platform for mental health,” Beermann said. “Whether someone is starting with self help tools, seeking treatment using the Directory, or receiving treatment supplemented by Pacifica for Clinicians, Pacifica is there for them.”
The new directory helps individuals looking for professional mental health treatment to find the best provider match. Live telehealth consultations allow individuals to speak to therapists with specializations suited to their needs, regardless of geographic location.
“Deciding to seek mental health treatment can be difficult enough. Finding a provider who is a good fit is yet another challenge,” Beermann said. “The Therapist Directory makes it easy for individuals to find therapists and schedule consultations to determine who is the right therapist for them.”
When searching the directory, individuals can also find therapists using Pacifica for Clinicians to work with their clients. For many Pacifica users, it can be beneficial to have a therapist taking advantage of technology and using familiar tools and methods in their therapy approach.
“Cognitive-behavioral therapy can be a highly effective approach to treatment, made even more powerful by Pacifica’s digital tools,” said Christine Moberg, Ph.D., Head of Psychology at Pacifica Labs. “Pacifica helps to reinforce what individuals are learning in session and communicate better with their therapist.”
