Joon Care, a Seattle, WA-based teletherapy platform designed exclusively for teens and young adults ages 13-24, raised $3.5m in funding.
Route 66 Ventures led the financing, with participation from PSL Ventures, Vulcan Capital and strategic angels.
The company intends to use the funds to continue to expand operations and its business reach.
Led by CEO Josh Herst, Joon Care provides an evidence-based, mobile and personalized teletherapy service designed for teens and young adults. Its clinical team treats anxiety, depression, stress and related conditions and is powered by a mobile app and therapist platform that is purpose-built to support and empower 13-24 year-olds.
Following the initial consultation, clients are matched with a licensed clinician and receive a personalized treatment roadmap detailing the evidence-based skills that will be covered during the course of their care. Treatment plans include scheduled one-on-one teletherapy sessions with a dedicated therapist and access to app and skill-building resources. Joon’s clinical leadership team supervises the care provided to all of our clients.
Since spinning out of startup studio Pioneer Square Labs in April 2020 (under the company’s initial name, UpLift), Joon’s team of licensed youth-focused therapists has been counseling clients ages 13 to 24 in Washington State. Led by co-founder and Chief Psychologist, Dr. Amy Mezulis, the clinical team uses an evidence-based, skills-focused approach that is personalized for each individual client.
