Professional Visibility

Let Us Help You Promote Your Qualifications

Develop an engaging professional presence.

If you are accepting new patients or clients, your National Register credential offers you the opportunity to be listed on our consumer-referral website, FindaPsychologist.org. Using this resource, potential patients or clients can connect with a psychologist who meets National Register standards: you! Make your profile stand out by ensuring that it’s complete and that you have a professional photo displayed. Follow these recommendations for updating your Registrant account.

Step 1: Evaluate Your FindaPsychologist.org Listing
  • If you are not currently accepting new patients or clients, check the “I am not currently accepting new patients” checkbox under the communication preferences section at the bottom of your Contact tab. This ensures that consumers have access only to psychologists who are accepting referrals. You can update this when you begin accepting new patients.
  • If you are currently accepting new patients, proceed to review the rest of your account settings.
Step 2: Review Your Contact Tab
  • Display at least one office phone number (required) and office address (recommended).
  • Opt in for FindaPsychologist.org email contact if you’d like.
  • If you have a practice website, you can add or update the website URL.
Step 3: Review Your Qualifications Tab

These categories are used as search filters. Potential patients can find your profile using the information you add to each category.

  • List at least one option for ages served.
  • List at least one area of expertise.
  • List insurance plans accepted, or specify that you do not accept insurance by checking the “I do not accept any healthcare/insurance plans” checkbox.
  • If applicable, add languages spoken other than English.
  • List at least one treatment modality.
Step 4: Submit a New or Updated Photo

We recommend that you display a professional photo to personalize your profile. This can be the same professional photo you would use on another professional website. Please upload your photo at 250×250 (square) or submit your original photo file to the National Register and we will resize and upload it for you.

Additional Ways to Boost Your Visibility
Questions About Your FindaPsychologist.org Listing

FindaPsychologist.org, the National Register’s referral website, provides consumers with educational resources, self-help strategies, and a searchable database of credentialed psychologists—including you! This wonderful resource encourages potential patients to review your profile details and reach out to set up an appointment. It’s also a great tool for you if you are looking for a referral to another health service psychologist.

Findapsychologist.org is intended to help potential patients find a psychologist for mental health support. It is standard practice to publicly display at least one office location and phone number. Without a phone number displayed on your findapsychologist.org profile, a potential patient cannot call your office with questions about your expertise, insurance coverage, or to set up an appointment. We encourage potential patients to reach out to several psychologists to find the best fit before beginning treatment. For these reasons, a public (office) phone number is required for your profile to display on findapsychologist.org.

No. Findapsychologist.org is intended to help potential patients find a psychologist for mental health support. If you are not currently accepting new patients or clients but remain on this site, this could be a disservice to those looking for help. If you are not currently accepting new patients, check the “I am not currently accepting new patients” checkbox under the “Contact” tab of your Registrant account. You can update this again any time your status changes. Please note that findapsychologist.org is not a professional verification database. Professional verifications are a separate benefit of the National Register.
