Schedule an Appointment

Schedule your initial online visit through Klarity’s online appointment portal. You’ll be seen online by a licensed provider within 48 hours. All appointments are 100% private and judgment-free. 

Consult With a Licensed Healthcare Provider

During the initial call, your licensed provider will evaluate your conditions, provide a diagnosis if needed, and collaborate with you to design a personalized treatment plan. If you are interested in being prescribed depression or anxiety medications, your provider determine which one is right for you based on your symptoms, medical history, and more. 

Pick Up Your Medication

Once you receive your prescription, you can get it filled at your local pharmacy and pick it up at your earliest convenience. If the medication works well for you and without severe side effects, it might be an option for you to receive a direct prescription from your provider on Klarity.

Anxiety Symptoms

If you are experiencing any of the following anxiety symptoms that impair your ability to function at home, work, or school, Klarity can help you connect with a licensed healthcare provider who specializes in treating anxiety disorders.

Here are the most common anxiety symptoms:

  • Nervousness, restlessness, feeling tense
  • Feeling that there is impending danger or doom, with no identifiable cause
  • Experiencing panic
  • Increased heart rate, rapid breathing, sweating or trembling
  • Feeling weak, tired, or low-energy
  • Having difficulty concentrating or focusing because of fear, anxiety, or stress
  • Sleeping issues
  • Gastrointestinal problems
  • Practicing avoidant behavior because of fear of triggering anxiety

Licensed providers on Klarity provide personalized treatment. Find a provider that matches your needs and preferences.

Depression Symptoms

Some anxiety and depression symptoms overlap, which can make it difficult to get to the root cause of either. If you experience any of the following depression symptoms, Klarity can help you get the appropriate treatment.

  • Feeling worthless, empty, numb, or excessively sad
  • Tearing up more frequently than normal
  • Irritability and disproportionate anger over minor concerns, frustrations, and inconveniences
  • Lacking interest in activities that used to bring joy—sex, hobbies, social gatherings, etc.
  • Sleeping too little or too much
  • Excessive tiredness or lack of energy
  • Physically moving and thinking slower than normal
  • Undereating or overeating accompanied by weight loss or weight gain
  • Increased feelings of anxiety or restlessness
  • Ruminating on past failures or feeling excessive regret about things you’ve done or didn’t do
  • Having difficulty remembering things, making decisions, or concentrating
  • Thinking frequently about death or suicide
  • Physical symptoms that have unclear or unspecific origins

Personalized Mental Health Treatment Online

Anxiety and depression have similar symptoms, but they are often unique to the individual experiencing them. Because anxiety and depression manifest differently in each person, Klarity believes that each person deserves a personalized mental health treatment plan. 

Our telehealth services are not only effective at treating anxiety and depression, but they are also affordable, fast, and convenient. 

How It Works

Klarity has helped over 15,000 people in the US find affordable, fast, and convenient treatment for anxiety, depression, ADHD, and insomnia. Here’s why people keep returning to Klarity to get connected with a healthcare provider. 


Unlike most clinics, Klarity charges a one-time initial visit charge of just $149, which includes a free month of treatment. Compare this to the $400-$500 other clinics charge to get in the door. After the first month, Klarity charges $25 per month for continued treatment or $59 for a video visit with a healthcare provider. 

No insurance coverage is required to see a provider on Klarity, making it an affordable option for those without an insurance plan or with inadequate coverage. 


Klarity will help get you an appointment with a licensed healthcare provider within 48 hours, where other clinics might have you wait between 3-6 months.

During this initial appointment, you’ll receive an evaluation and a diagnosis report afterward. From there, you and your provider work together to craft a treatment plan.  


With Klarity, you have 24/7 messaging access to your medical provider. You can also meet with them via telehealth from anywhere if you have a phone or internet connection.
