What is MyCocun?
MyCocun is an online counseling (also known as telehealth, telecounseling, or teletherapy) platform for teens and young adults struggling with depression and anxiety. We provide convenient, confidential, and affordable access to a licensed therapist.
Our professional counselors specialize in the issues directly affecting transition ages, 14-24. Mental illness in this age group often goes untreated for years, so we wanted to step in and help.
At MyCocun, our goal is to reduce the delay between onset of symptoms and treatment during these critical years. We hope to accomplish this by providing convenient, affordable, and stigma free care.
By providing confidential counseling anytime from anywhere for less than the average insurance copay, we eliminate the traditional barriers to care; access, cost, and stigma.
Who are MyCocun counselors?
Our counselors are licensed, trained, experienced, and accredited clinical social workers (LCSW / LMSW), licensed professional counselors (LPC), licensed marriage and family therapists (LMFT), or licensed psychologists (PhD).
They have been qualified and certified by their state’s professional board after successfully completing the necessary education, exams, training and practice. All MyCocun therapists have been carefully vetted and trained on our platform. All of our therapists have over 3,000 hours of clinical experience.
How are counselors verified?
Our team ensures that every provider we bring to the platform is fully licensed and in good standing. Providers who apply are required to provide proper licensure documentation, proof of identity, and references from other licensed practitioners who have worked with them.We also show the full licensing information for each provider to make it easy for you to do your own due diligence on your counselor.

What is tele-therapy?
The terms tele therapy, telepsychology, telecounseling, and online counseling are often used interchangeably. Any therapy delivered remotely through technology is commonly referred to as teletherapy.
This includes phone-based therapy with a private practitioner, video chats, or online counseling platforms such as MyCocun. Anytime you’re interacting with a therapist or counselor through a website, phone, or mobile app, you are likely taking part in teletherapy!
