Mckell Smith is a certified speech-language pathologist with almost a decade of experience in the field and has been in the telepractice industry for more than seven years. Being a mom to little kids with speech needs and being a friend and family member to people with various conditions, coupled with her experience in both in-person and telepractice sessions, she saw an urgent need for better solutions. Mckell is the founder of TheraV, Inc., an online marketplace for therapists and specialists (such as speech, OT, PT, counseling, ABA). TheraV connects families with therapists that best suits their needs or the needs of their loved ones. The sole reason Mckell developed TheraV is to allow therapists to see their clients online with security features that are up to date to ensure safety during online sessions.
TheraV targets people who need therapy services, either for themselves or members of their families. Therapists looking to provide their services can join the platform as well, but only after a rigorous screening process conducted by TheraV. According to Mckell, TheraV is the only online platform that screens therapists based on the qualifications, specialty, strengths and cost to better assist families in finding the perfect therapist for their loved one.
TheraV is different from others because it has a fully interactive process that is only complete when the customers and prospective clients get connected to the right therapist. The online platform makes available all the tools and security required to hold an engaging and secure online session. On the TheraV platform, both the client and the therapist can be assured of their comfort, confidence, and security.
Mckell states that her motivation stems from her experience in the field and the need for a better solution in the telepractice industry. She aims to provide therapists with the necessary tools they need to deliver top-notch services virtually.
On where she sees her brand in five years, she says, “In 5 years, I see TheraV thriving as an online marketplace for families and therapists. I see us connecting individuals across the globe to help them achieve better outcomes. As telepractice expands and there are fewer restrictions on treating across state lines, therapists will begin to specialize even more. They will begin to market themselves in a new way. Families will have an opportunity to specifically pick a therapist based on personality, specialty, and cost. They will be able to review a therapist before they decide who to engage. They will feel increased confidence in knowing they are truly in charge of the care their loved one receives. TheraV will assist all families through this process, making sure they are comfortable and pleased throughout their experience.”
Mckell wants readers of this article to know that there is a resource available to help them find the therapist that matches their needs; one that makes them feel confident and comfortable. And even though telepractice sessions are not for everyone, she feels TheraV possesses the tools to help clients determine the kind of therapy they need and the perfect therapist that matches their needs.
