I started Zencare after my experience looking for a therapist. I wanted to speak with a someone about my quarter-life crisis and had to spend days searching for the right person. Existing directories weren't helpful in filtering my options and I still didn't have a therapist after a few weeks. Zencare is my hope to simplify that process for you. It takes courage to seek support, and finding a therapist can be hassle-free and life changing. I hope you find Zencare helpful!
