One of the things that held me back from going to therapy was the thought of having to wade through several to find the right one. The matching process at Two Chairs worked really well for me—my therapist has been a great match from day one.

FAQs

What is therapy?

Therapy is a collaborative process based on a trusting relationship between you and your therapist. This strong therapeutic alliance allows you to talk freely and openly in a supportive, unbiased, and non-judgmental environment. Together, over a series of appointments, you and your therapist will challenge current patterns that keep you feeling stuck as well as identify and work towards fulfilling goals.

Who can attend therapy at Two Chairs?

Currently, Two Chairs offers psychotherapy services to those over the age of 18. While we don’t currently offer psychiatric or adolescent services, our therapists can help work with outside providers for your care.

Why is it so important to find the right therapist?

Research shows that the therapeutic alliance between you and your therapist is the best predictor of successful treatment outcome. Psychologists define the therapeutic alliance as the strength of the therapist-client relationship and how aligned you are on goals. Studies show that individuals with a strong therapeutic alliance with their therapist are more productive at work, have more fulfilled relationships, can cope more effectively with daily stressors, and engage in less risky behaviors.

What should I expect from the matching appointment?

You can expect to be on a 45-minute video call with a licensed Two Chairs therapist who has deep training in making the right match for you. During this conversation, the Two Chairs matching expert will work with you to identify your needs and preferences for therapy, and your scheduling availability. This appointment augments the information gathered from your Two Chairs profile and provides an opportunity for you to discuss personal questions or concerns you may have about therapy or receiving care at Two Chairs. Based on your conversation, we’ll match you with the best therapist for you based on your needs, goals, and preferences. If you’re ready to start care, you can book your matching appointment here. If you’d like a closer look at what happens in the matching appointment, you can learn all about it in this blog post.

When will I be matched to a therapist?

To ensure you get the most out of therapy, we take great care to honor your preferences and match you with the right therapist. While we’re often able to match you within a few days, if you have strict scheduling constraints, it may take up to 2 weeks for us to find the best match. You'll hear from us as soon as we've identified the right therapist for you. If you have any questions in the meantime, please feel free to contact the Two Chairs Care Team team at (415) 202-5159 or support@twochairs.com.

What if you can't match me with a therapist I like?

If we can't match you to a therapist you like and you choose not to start care at Two Chairs, we will refund the full cost of your Matching appointment. To request a refund for your matching appointment, email support@twochairs.com within two weeks of the Matching appointment and include the details of your request. If you have been significantly delayed in receiving a match, or are unable to be matched based on your needs or preferences for care, you can also request a refund.
