north and west of boston. then behind it, we're going to turn cooler, not cold, necessarily. not talking about much in terms of precipitation from this one. maybe a tenth of an inch at best. and then as we head through the next seven days, temperatures really start to warm up into the mid 50's on monday. behind it, see what i say. turning cooler. we're still in the upper 40's which is well above where we should be this time of year. so wednesday when our next big weather maker comes-- and this one really has its eye set on us-- but the track is very west so that means it's a warm track meaning it should be all rain.
6:17 am

6:21 am
healthy level of distance. that helps users to get over the shame to open up. heather: for clients requiring more care or even medication, "talk-space" provides referrals to a psychiatrist. advertisement: because your therapist is always with you. heather: for bisson, he continues to see patients at his private practice in holliston. he believes traditional face-to-face methods are still important. bisson: i think creating a relationship when you're looking at someone in the eye and going like this versus like nothing is really essential. heather: but he also sees the benefit to something like "talk-space." bisson: if this is what is going to attract 20% of people who have not reached out otherwise, then i'm all for it. i'm very much for it. shayna: that was heather unruh reporting. bisson's caseload on "talk-space" is growing. he now has about 40 clients around the u.s. doug: the app also offers audio and video access to therapists, right from your smartphone.
