For Therapists
 

It is not uncommon for someone to realize that they need to find a psychologist or licensed therapist for themselves or someone they care about. Psychology.com offers you many ways to get the psychological and mental health help you need, when you need it. We were the first to offer an online counseling and therapy directory, with an extensive database of clinical professionals from which to choose. It's called The Therapist Directory. Licensed clinical psychologists, social workers, counselors and other professionals with a variety of specialties are available for personal and confidential online consultations.

By using our convenient online search tools, we can connect you to a licensed therapist in your area who can provide you with the help you need. Simply enter your search criteria in the fields given, and you will be provided with a list of therapists who match your request. You can scroll through their credentials and their designated specialties, and learn about each professional therapist's method of practice. You will also be able to determine whether the individual conducts advice and/or psychology online sessions.

Try using our online counseling service, conducted by licensed psychologists and other therapists that you choose from our database. There are many clinicians who participate in this convenient area of practice. Rest assured, these online sessions are completely confidential, and an effective complement to face to face sessions.

We also highly recommend our Self-Discovery feature. Here you can take a self-assessment test to determine your level of stress and/or depression. Most of the assessments are free and can be completed in minutes.

We also welcome you to browse through our self-help library to find materials on psychology topics that are of interest to you. You can find information on all types of mental health issues from child psychology to schizophrenia. Our library contains up-to-date articles written by experts in the field.
