Our Story

I started Zencare after my experience looking for a therapist. I wanted to speak with someone about my quarter-life crisis, but existing directories weren't helpful in narrowing my options and it took months to find someone who fit what I was looking for. Zencare is my hope to simplify that process for clients, while helping outstanding therapists shape their dream practice. Private practice is a business, and we're here to help you build a thriving, dream practice with clients who are motivated and invested in therapy.
