Find a Therapist & Psychological Help

Resources for Getting Help for Mental Health, Parenting Issues, Relationship Issues & More

By John M. Grohol, Psy.D.


Getting help for an emotional or mental health concern can feel a little scary -- and a little frustrating. Finding the right psychotherapist, psychologist, or psychiatrist to work with can be time consuming and overwhelming. We get that. But psychotherapy is an important option to consider. You can more quickly and easily find a good therapist through our Find a Therapist service.

You can begin searching or browsing for a new therapist to the right.

Most people are searching for a traditional psychotherapy relationship -- where you meet with your therapist once a week, face-to-face. They help you better understand your concerns and find solutions to reduce your symptoms.

Talk to a counselor online right now!

You can talk with a licensed counselor online right now through our partner, BetterHelp.

Betterhelp is the exclusive sponsor of The Psych Central Show podcast. We are pleased to partner with them, allowing you immediate access to online counselors available to talk.

Your insurance company will generally pay for most of the treatment of most mental health concerns if you see a therapist face-to-face (minus a small co-pay per session).
