GoodTherapy.org and PsychCentral.com Partner to Help Therapy Seekers Find a Therapist
Date:3/9/2010

OLYMPIA, Wash., March 9 /PRNewswire/ -- To the casual observer, it might seem that the task to find a therapist is relatively simple; open up a phone book or type a few words into a major search engine, and a host of options are instantly available. But without a meaningful way to differentiate between professionals, potential clients are sometimes left feeling forced to pick the closest office or the listing with the biggest advertisement, and such methods are rarely if ever able to ensure a degree of quality. This quality is of great importance in the field of psychotherapy, as working with an unqualified or otherwise questionable therapist can lead to significant emotional and mental harm. Recognizing the need for a reliable and consistent way to find a therapist who is both local and dedicated to providing meaningful, heartfelt care, GoodTherapy.org developed an exclusive and stringent online directory in 1997, and is now proud to announce the directory's collaboration with PsychCentral.com.

PsychCentral.com has partnered with GoodTherapy.org to incorporate the quality, hand-reviewed listings into its own therapist search function. PsychCentral.com is the leading mental health and psychology website online today, reaching more than 1.1 million users each month. "I found that GoodTherapy.org offers a great selection of therapists and focuses as much on the quality of providers, as the quantity," said John M. Grohol, Psy.D., Founder & CEO of Psych Central. "We're proud to partner with GoodTherapy.org in helping our users find a high quality therapist." Users of the PsychCentral.com directory will now be able to view entries from the GoodTherapy.org database, bringing an exceptional level of integrity and reliability to the site. The move will also allow for greater exposure for GoodTherapy.org professional members, as their listing information will now be displayed to two of the internet's largest therapy-related audiences.

GoodTherapy.org is excited about the potential for extended reach that the partnership represents, as one of its central goals since establishment has been to help connect people with quality psychotherapists who are enthusiastic about providing collaborative and non-pathologically based therapy services. Though most industry professionals may operate with confidence in their ability to serve clients, some may possess poor credentials or be otherwise unqualified to render positive service, and others may hold potentially damaging beliefs about the nature of psychotherapy or the clients themselves. Ensuring that those in need are given greater access to therapists who are truly able to help and offer uplifting support continues to drive GoodTherapy.org's efforts as its community grows, and its partnership with PsychCentral.com is a significant step forward in promoting this effort.

The agreement between the two major sites has instantly produced one of the web's greatest therapy & therapist resources, and this merged directory is bound to help scores of potential clients advance their search beyond the guesswork of a phone book or search engine query. To find a therapist who can offer effecting and caring psychotherapy, whether the interest is general or calls upon the expertise of a specialist, interested users can take advantage of this alliance and discover the power of good therapy in their own lives.
