Be part of building something great

Talkiatry is solving the mental health crisis in our community by building a psychiatric practice that addresses the unique needs of psychiatrists and insurers. The result? We are growing rapidly because psychiatrists prefer our practice model.

Using our proprietary technology platform, psychiatrist can design the job of their dreams: the hours, pay, and patient population they desire as well as the flexibility of practicing in-person or by telepsychiatry. Best of all, Talkiatry takes on the headaches of running a private practice, like billing and finding new patients. We allow the psychiatrist to focus on what they care about most: their patients.

Patients benefit too. We offer convenient appointment times and accept insurance. Through our proprietary intake process we match them with the clinician most able to treat their condition. Patients feel better faster.
