Our Story

Our founding team has been in the mental health field for 17 years. We have worked as scientists, therapists, patient advocates and educators, and we have been frustrated by the problems that plague mental health care.


So many patients are unable to find high quality, evidence-based, affordable mental health care. It shouldn’t be that way. Effective behavioral therapies exist, but they are not available to the majority of people who need them.


Our team is on a mission to solve the existing problems in mental health care for a group of people who desperately need fast, easy access to care that works - moms. Medication is not and should not be the only option.


We are moms of young children with deep expertise in behavioral therapies for anxiety, depression, rage, birth trauma, intrusive thoughts and much more. Having experienced some of these issues ourselves, we faced the same roadblocks that so many moms face when seeking care.


We wanted to build a company that stood out from the rest - a company firmly rooted in the tenets of science, that uses innovations in technology and gold-standard interventions to remove barriers that block access to the best available mental health care, and most importantly, that always puts the client first.


There are very few mental health companies founded by therapists. And even fewer founded by women. Now moms? Basically zero. The result? Existing companies don’t understand the needs of moms, and their care reflects that. Expensive therapists who just don’t get it.


The services we provide at Prospera are exactly what we would want for ourselves and our loved ones. Care that seems too good to be true. And we are making it available for every mother who wants or needs it.
