Welcome to Digital Therapy

Therapy delivered digitally
using artificial intelligence

We are a pioneer in providing evidence-based digital therapy solutions to consumers, healthcare providers and employers.

Our digital platform contains more than 3,500 situation-specific psychotherapeutic conversations powering a suite of behavior change applications that effectively address the major public health issues of obesity, depression, addiction and stress.

We are making therapy more accessible, affordable and effective—wherever you are, at the moment you need it.

It's what a therapist does but without a therapist.

How it works

Why don’t people take the actions they know would improve their lives?

Every one of us at some stage in life makes a promise to ourselves: a commitment to eat healthy, to lose weight, to exercise more, to drink less, to give up smoking. To change for the better. But we often fail at great personal and social cost.

Why? It comes down to two words: inner conflict. Behavior change is often blocked by the internal conflict between the desire to change and the emotional thought patterns that prevent it.

Digital Therapy facilitates the resolution of this internal conflict by engaging the user at the “reachable moment” of distress in a digital conversation that takes them through a clinically-proven therapeutic process on their smartphone.

A Kaiser Permanente/UCLA study found that Dr. Gould's online therapy sessions have the same effect as a face-to-face consult with an experienced therapist.

An online weight loss application that expertly guides users to uncover and address the issues behind their emotional eating.

We are what we feel, just as we are what we eat. And when those feelings become complex emotions like anxiety, depression, procrastination or self-loathing, turning to food to cope is often the result.
