Improving self-improvement

Our Story


Finding emotional well-being during life’s twists and turns isn’t easy. Accessing care is at best expensive, and at worst completely out of reach. And that’s where Lantern comes in. Founded in 2012 in San Francisco, we’re a team of researchers, technologists, and clinicians translating clinical research and expertise into simple, effective web and mobile programs based in cognitive behavioral therapy.


We’re not about unrealistic promises or get-happy-quick schemes. We’re about removing the stigma and barriers that prevent people from strengthening their emotional selves, offering a holistic approach to making every day better.


We envision a world in which people think differently about their mental health–where they feel empowered to take a simple step toward self-improvement. We’re on a mission to make this happen, and we hope you’ll join us.

Our Philosophy


We believe that the journey is just as important as the end point. We’re building Lantern with this in mind every day:

Be Authentic

We are an evidenced-based company and hold ourselves to a high standard. Our priority is making sure our product works for our users and adds value to their lives.

Ask for Help

Don't be a hero. Raise your hand. Make sure you get support from your teammates when you need it.

Be Curious

Ask questions and challenge convention! If you think you don't have any questions, think of some questions anyway. Learn to appreciate being surprised and being comfortable with being uncomfortable.

Have Fun Every Day

Fun equals better relationships, improved productivity, and increased joy, ultimately making work not feel like work. Celebrate success!

Seek Balance

Work and life do not need to be at odds with one another. Maintain a flexible outlook on goals, objectives, and projects and strive to keep everything in balance.
