Our Team

I started HearMe because there's a transcendence that comes from being truly heard, seen, and validated by another human being. Being acknowledged for who we are, as a whole person, without judgment is a powerful solution for addressing loneliness. Even though people in our social networks "surround" us and even crave the same things, there are few opportunities for authentic connections in real-time to support people navigate everyday stresses. So I helped build a platform for making these critical connections possible whenever we need them.

Listen. We can improve Mental Wellness together. 

The Problem: We are in mental wellness crisis

47% of Americans report feeling lonely. Despite advances in technology that allow for constant connection, people feel more lonely, anxious, and devoid of authentic connection than ever. Loneliness is greatly impacting Gen Z and Millennials, making them the loneliest generations. 

A recent study from YouGov showed that 22% of Millennials reported having no friends. Covid-19 has only heightened their sense of isolation. 

Goal: Own the sub-clinical mental wellness space

Current Solutions aren't working despite people actively looking for help. Other models focus on lead generation to paid clinical services, chatbots, or self-reflection. People don’t always need help in a clinical setting. More often, they benefit from someone who can listen to them, be present and available for them, see them, hear them, and validate them. 

That is where HearMe comes in. 

Solution: The HearMe Platform

HearMe is a mobile health disruptor with a scalable solution to address the global loneliness crisis and improve mental wellness. We democratize talk therapy's benefits by allowing anyone to anonymously connect 24/7 with a trained listener who can understand and share in their unique lived experiences.

By addressing the epidemic of loneliness and disconnection before it accelerates into larger health issues, we can positively impact people's overall mental wellness, drive targeted responses, and reduce cost for universities and enterprises. Built on the power of human connection through technology, we have access to vast datasets to allow for rich insights.

How It Works

HearMe harnesses the power of empathetic listening to create authentic connections and provide an outlet for people to vent, share, and discuss everyday stressors and triggers. Our 24/7 on-demand support meets people in their moment of need.

Our Unique Approach 

Mental health continues to deteriorate despite an increase in people being willing to seek help. We believe that a problem shared is a problem halved and that we all play a role in creating a healthier world. HearMe provides an inclusive and safe space for everyone to be welcomed and heard. 

Empowering all to put empathy into action through evidence-based interactions to improve mental wellness

Finding avenues to feel heard and honestly express emotions can improve mental health, decrease negative self-thoughts and lead to a happier, more fulfilling life. According to the Cigna loneliness survey, people who experienced daily, meaningful interactions scored 20 points lower on the Loneliness Index and tended to be healthier than those who didn’t. 

Overcoming loneliness starts with authentic, individual conversations. When we have an outlet to freely communicate and be heard without fear of judgment, we feel a sense of release, validation, and empowerment. 

Business model
