Sesh Therapy created a community for people of various identities, by offering in-person group therapy facilitated by diverse, culturally competent therapists. Forced to shift to a digital model due to Covid, they decided to invest in their users’ experience and build a mobile app. The team approached Carbon Five with the task of building a HIPAA compliant, user friendly iOS and Android experience in just 10 weeks.


Working on a tight timeline, the team focused on designing an app with emphasis on performance, security and an engaging user experience.

Keeping the user experience in mind the team followed mobile design best practices and utilized React Native & Paper UI to create a seamless experience across iOS or Android.

In addition to front end experience the team built a HIPAA compliant backend architecture and booking system. This included providing access to the available Sesh sessions via Firebase API and integrates with the Stripe payment service for monthly subscriptions.

“We ran remote design sprints where we could test multiple concepts and uncover the best way for users to discover sessions that would be most relevant to them. This method allowed us to quickly identify patterns driving the key action we wanted users to take—explore the diversity of sessions available.”
