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