Find a Therapist & Psychological Help

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

Getting help for an emotional or mental health concern can feel a little scary — and a little frustrating. Finding the right therapist, 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 below.

Finding a Therapist Right For You

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. (During the COVID-19 outbreak, many traditional therapists are also offering telehealth visits via videoconferencing or the telephone.)

Your insurance company will generally pay for most of the treatment of most mental health concerns if you see a therapist face-to-face (you may be responsible for a co-pay amount per session, depending upon your health insurance plan).
