Built for kids and teens, here for you

Navigating parenthood can be difficult enough. Getting help shouldn't be. When your child needs support building social-emotional skills or is dealing with behavioral or mental health challenges like low self-esteem, ADHD, anxiety, or depression, think of Brightline as your trusted parenting partner.

California Cares Family

Created for parents, by parents who get it

We know that finding the right mental health support for your family’s needs is challenging — and we’re on a mission to make it easy.

A note from Naomi

Hi there!

I’m Naomi, co-founder and CEO of Brightline. Our expert care team provides families nationwide with in-network virtual therapy, coaching, and psychiatry for kids and teens.

I started Brightline because when my son started showing signs of anxiety, navigating the broken system showed me firsthand how hard finding trustworthy care for your kids can be. Between sitting on months-long waitlists and being sent to provider directories without getting in touch with an actual human—all while my child still didn’t have the care he needed—it took a toll on my own mental health. 

Through Brightline, I hope to give families like yours the support I wish mine had — personalized expert care, when you actually need it.

When you're helping your child navigate behavioral and mental health challenges like self-esteem, ADHD, or depression, or trying to build their social-emotional skills, you can think of us as your trusted partner in parenting.

Parenthood can be difficult enough. Getting help shouldn't be.

We can’t wait to meet your family.
