Meet the team behind the scenes at Motivo.

What We Do

All pre-licensed therapists have mandatory supervision hours they need to complete for licensure, and a crucial part of that process is having the right supervisor. Often, therapists only have access to a very limited pool of supervisors to choose from, many of whom are not always the right fit. We want to change that.
With the rise of telehealth, most states now allow clinical supervision hours to be obtained online through live video-conference. We created Motivo, the first online platform connecting mental health therapists to clinical supervisors, to be an easier and more efficient path toward licensure. 


Motivo is the first HIPAA-compliant platform connecting therapists to clinical supervisors.
