Octave’s mission is to create a new standard for mental health care that’s both accessible to people and sustainable for providers. By redesigning how care is delivered and expanding options to make it more affordable, we can meet the growing need for mental health care and measurably improve more lives.
Octave is a musical term, referring to a complete collection of musical notes. Similarly, we offer a complete set of services that can be tuned to each person’s unique needs.
After completing a structured assessment of each new client, we match them with the right provider and design a care plan that can include individual therapy, couples therapy, and groups.
Our model is evidence-based and outcome-driven. We track progress throughout the care journey to ensure our clients can reach their goals and ultimately have the tools to manage their own emotional well-being.
— Sandeep Acharya, CEO and Co-Founder
We believe that technology should play an important, but supporting, role in mental health care. We leverage innovative tech to improve onboarding, billing, communications, and health records - but when it comes to changing people’s lives, that comes through human connection.
Octave has carefully selected the best therapists, who are committed to establishing a meaningful connection with their clients. From a thoughtful matching process to broad expertise for a range of conditions, we enable our people to do the work that matters most.
Getting high-quality mental health care starts with access. More than half of all therapists nationwide do not accept insurance, and those who do often can’t get reimbursements that make their practice sustainable.
We’re pioneering relationships with insurance companies to cover a range of services, and is currently in-network with multiple payers in California and New York. We also design compensation packages for providers that allow them to do their best work without worrying about the overhead.
It’s a winning model that can change the whole system: greater access for clients, and greater freedom for providers.
