Episode #24: Yuri Tomikawa // Founder of Zencare // The Importance of Mental Health

She was shocked with how long and challenging the process was — from insurance, to appointments being booked out for months. She realized that there was a HUGE need for people struggling to have an easy place to book directly with a therapist in a timely manner.
