We couldn’t find the right therapist – so we decided to help.

Our Story

Horizontal Squiggle

In 2017 Ryan Schwartz unexpectedly lost his mother, and he was encouraged to try therapy for the first time. While grieving deeply, he got lost in clunky websites, unhelpful information, and appointments with therapists that weren’t a fit. The process was confusing, time-consuming, and totally demoralizing.

As he healed, he was inspired to create a better way for people to find care. He talked to therapists, tested ideas, and asked people looking for therapy what they needed most.

Mental Health Match is here to make finding mental healthcare human and helpful. Our goal is to be the very best place to find therapy.

Over the past five years, we’ve brought together some of the most passionate mental health advocates to create a clear, effective path through the messy landscape of mental health care.

We now help thousands of people every week find a therapist. And out of loss, Ryan has found a way to honor his mom and turn his pain into purpose.
