Our mission

Heard is a trusted space for therapists, offering a rigorously vetted referral community, thoughtfully designed tools to succeed in private practice, and meaningful resources that enable connection, growth and self-care.

At Heard, we believe that therapy plays a crucial role in the betterment of our society. We also have conviction in the idea that if we work together, we can enable the most effective and efficient care for as many people as possible.

To push this movement forward, we aim to equip therapists with a powerful platform to realize their fullest potential, both professionally and personally.

"Heard creates a space for clinicians to develop a professional community and grow their practices by concretely building trackable referral networks, virtual consultation groups, useful workshops, and more. Being able to create virtual referral networks just makes sense given the trend of therapy moving toward telehealth and virtual modalities."
