PPRVoted a Website to Watch by Entrepreneur Magazine, Pretty Padded Room provides online therapy to women on their own time and on their own terms. This revolutionary website for women connects clients from anywhere in the world with an all-female team of licensed counselors through video chat or Digital Diary, an interactive journal that facilitates written consultations. Our model has transformed traditional therapy into an experience that is low-cost, convenient, and completely confidential.
