Invested: Pre-Seed Round, October 2020


While one-on-one therapy has become a cultural norm, couples therapy still faces a degree of stigma in modern society. Actually was created for couples looking to proactively invest in their relationships.

Studies have consistently shown that the quality of your relationship is the number one predictor of your health and happiness and those happiest at age 50 are healthiest at age 80.

Started by Jessica Holton, Adam Putterman and Elizabeth Earnshaw, the team at Actually brings together therapists, designers, builders, academics and, most importantly, a group of people that obsesses over relationships. Lakehouse led the pre-seed round of financing for Actually in October 2020 and is the twenty-second investment we've made.
