Advekit is a mental health start up that connects people with the "right" therapist suited to their needs. We have designed a convenient and straight forward way for people to get the help that they deserve. Rather than sifting through pages of directory listings online, or calling your insurance company to only receive a list of names on paper, Advekit asks a couple of questions and instantly returns 3 therapist recommendations to each user. Our quick and easy form takes into account location, insurance, availability, gender preference of therapist, therapist specialties, etc. and matches prospective patients according to the best suited therapist per their needs. We piloted our site via a beta trial in May 2017 for 3 months, and since August we have had a revenue producing subscription based service (therapists pay the subscription and patients do not pay to use the site). We are only in the LA market, but looking to grow Advekit to new cities soon, due it's success thus far. Our concept is simple, straight forward, and we hope to disrupt the mental health marketplace nationally one day. We want everyone to have a free and convenient resource to find support when they are seeking it.
