Therapy, tailored to you

Research shows that a strong client-therapist relationship is the key to great therapy, so we’ve invested in perfecting the match.

Great therapy starts with the right therapist

Before you start therapy, you’ll meet with a licensed expert trained to match you with the right therapist for you, based on things like:

Identity and demographic preferences
Specialty areas and structure of therapy
When and where you want to meet

Our process works—98% of Two Chairs clients find the right therapist on the first try.

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.
— Alexandria B., Two Chairs Client
The first therapist I met was also the best match for me. In general I appreciate that Two Chairs makes finding the right therapist and dealing with claims easy. Everything about the experience is pleasant and effective.
— Morgane S., Two Chairs Client
Being new to therapy, I put it off for the longest time because I wasn’t sure how to find a therapist that was right for me. Two Chairs’ matching process made this stress-free, and I’ve already recommended it to others!

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.

What if I want to see a different therapist after I’ve been matched?

If your needs for therapy have changed, we’ll rematch with a new therapist at no cost to you. If you have any questions about our rematch process, please contact the Two Chairs Care Team team at (415) 202-5159 or

Can I use my HSA or FSA to pay for Two Chairs appointments?

Yes, you can! Two Chairs accepts FSA/HSA dollars as long as your FSA/HSA card is affiliated with a major credit card. If you would like to use your FSA/HSA card to pay for your care, please enter the payment information when you schedule your matching appointment or call us at 415-202-5159 and we can help get you set up. We can also provide you with any necessary paperwork to get reimbursed if your FSA/HSA account doesn’t have an associated debit card. A note that submitting receipts tends to be easier if you are also submitting your claims to your insurance company, and can ensure that you are making the most of your FSA/HSA benefits.

What is your cancellation policy?

You can cancel your appointment up to 48 hours before your scheduled therapy without a fee. If you cancel less than 48 hours before your appointment, you will be charged for the full cost of your appointment. To ensure the continuity needed for high-quality care, you are allowed 4 missed appointments (cancellation or no shows), every 6 months (Jan-Jun, Jul-Dec). Our detailed cancellation policy can be found here.

I’m interested in starting in-person therapy at Two Chairs. What do I do now?

Two Chairs has several beautiful clinics across the Bay Area, Los Angeles, and Seattle for clients who prefer in-person therapy. When you are ready to start therapy at Two Chairs, the first step is to book your Matching appointment.  After you book your Matching appointment, you’ll fill out a client profile where you can let us know that you prefer in-person therapy.
