** Apple's Best of 2017 ** Stress, anxiety, and depression can get in the way of you living your life. Pacifica gives you psychologist-designed tools to address them based on Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, mindfulness meditation, relaxation, and mood/health tracking. Stress, anxiety, and depression are caused by an ongoing cycle of negative thoughts. Thoughts cause physical feelings and emotions which cause actions. Pacifica helps break this cycle using tools that target each of its components. Day-by-day, you'll learn to manage stress, anxiety and depression at your own pace. We’re not about quick-fixes or false promises. We are about real progress, a day at a time. #1 - BuzzFeed's Amazing Apps For Anyone Living With Anxiety #1 - Forbes' 4 Technologies Innovating in Mental Health TESTIMONIALS "This app is not only beautiful and easy to use, it's also an incredibly useful tool that has genuinely changed my way of thinking when it comes to anxiety." “Thank you so much for improving my quality of life. I suffer from depression and generalized anxiety disorder and your app helps me SO much!...I know I can do better and Pacifica motivates me to improve my eating habits (and to drink more water and less alcohol and coffee!).” RELAXATION & MINDFULNESS MEDITATION AUDIO TOOLS Calm down in moments of stress or anxiety using one of Pacifica’s 30+ audio exercises set to relaxing soundscapes, including deep breathing, muscle relaxation, mindfulness meditations, and more.

These include an introductory Path, two Paths focused on CBT, and a mindfulness Path.

THOUGHT RECORDING, JOURNALING & ANALYSIS Use Pacifica’s psychologist-designed thought analysis tools to learn how distorted thinking patterns contribute to your anxiety. Pacifica uses CBT techniques to help you to think in a more balanced way, which helps break the negative thought cycle.

  • Tremendous resource

    By touchstone1
    Calming and inspiring. Wonderful, supportive community. App developers have clearly put much care and thought into Pacifica.
  • Love it!

    By Gabriëllë
    Honestly, I wasn’t expecting this app to be this great because it’s basically free. You can upgrade but it’s so great without the upgrade too! I’ve NEVER typed a review for an app before but Pacifica deserves it. Great job guys. I struggle a lot mentally and this helps me to feel good about completely even the littlest of goals but they feel big to me (brushing teeth, showering, eating, sitting outside, hobbies etc..). I highly suggest downloading this ((: And the daily quotes are great too.
  • Life Changing

    By bbygirl_
    I’ve only had the app for a few months, but it had definitely been one of the most helpful apps I’ve ever downloaded. From the hope board to the guided meditation sessions to the journal entries Pacifica houses everything you need to improve your mental state and become more in-tune with yourself. I must say having a community of people who can actually relate to you makes all the difference, a lot of my friends and family equate having anxiety and depression to being nervous & sad, when it’s so much more than that. But after seeing my improvements, I purchased a subscription, and it’s definitely worth it. If you’re struggling with something & contemplating the usefulness of this app please try it.
  • Most amazing app

    By Melissacnc
    I have had a very rough life and struggle everyday to maintain. With both physical and mental illnesses, I have it rough, and I have been struggling to find my way. I needed something with me to remind me that I was ok. This app is amazing. Everyday I feel stronger. Every person I have come in contact with it so sweet and kind. This app will never leave my phone again. Thank you so much. Bless you for your help

  • Helps!

    This app is great! I always feel better after logging in and using Pacifica, although I wish there wasn’t a premium and meditations were available to everyone for free. Great app still though!
  • Expensive

    By KDogTop
    Redownloaded this after a couple years of not using it due to constantly being signed out. They fixed the bug, but they also started charging money for things that I didn’t have to pay for before. I was exited about using the heart-meter thing but I can only set 3 meters now, unless I wanna pay 200 dollars. The constant notifs about suggesting something I have to pay for to do is annoying. At my most cynical, I’d say they’re kinda taking advantage of depressed people who already like to splurge. Had I not been broke, I would have probably fallen for it. But on the bright side, it is an amazing app that is very useful for tracking your moods and documenting your emotions, and if you don’t feel like writing a journal entery, you can just tap a few key words to describe your emotions. My days of showing up to my doctor and having no idea how I’ve been feeling are over, cause now I can just refer to this app to share how I’ve been doing.
  • Life saver

    By Brian in sw mo!
    This app was there when I wasn’t yet diagnosed with panic attacks. I was so worried I was dying And the doctors couldn’t yet tell me what exactly was going on. I learned to do cognitive behavioral therapy through the app. The app is like having a CBT counselor on your phone available 24 seven. The meditations are amazing and they bring me to a sense of calm. Identifying mine traps and working through those has been an amazing tool that I use every day. Positive visualization has helped tremendously. When I’m at work or at home I can always rely on the app to help me through my panic attacks. I huge thank you to all those who are involved in creating Pacifica and making sure it runs smoothly. The updates have been awesome to watch as well.
  • Actually helpful

    By Oddly.Optimistic
    I’ve had this app for a few years and I have to say it’s helped a lot. You don’t need premium to get the help. There’s so many tools on there that have helped me with some pretty trash things. It’s helped me and I’d recommend it to others
  • Limited

    By cajunsun
    I was initially very happy with this app until I joined a couple of group chats. One was basically inactive. The other was more active, but the format is like a text messaging format. So basically only one person can have an issue to discuss at a time or it becomes very confusing. AND.... I tried to write a reply to someone who was struggling, and I got cut-off by the character limit. I understand WHY there is a character limit, but I feel the format limits communication/assistance.
