Directory of Internet Psychotherapists
This is a comprehensive, independent consumer guide to the psychotherapists and counselors who provide services over the Internet. This guide is compiled by consumers, for consumers.
|A consumer survey was conducted
on people's experiences with online therapy, that you may want to consult.
This directory gives you data about each therapists credentials, fees, payment options, services offered, and other relevant facts. But you must actually visit the therapists site for complete information about their services.
All entries are up-to-date as of August 2007.
These additional lists are available:
Consult the introduction for explanations of the information provided here.
- Caveat - therapists whose credentials are uncertain; or with unacceptable security.
- Closed - therapists who are no longer in business, though their sites are still online; and sites I found which seem to be dead.
- Gone - former sites which have vanished. Let us know if you find them.
A NOTE ABOUT THE S:
The ratings should not be considered a rating of the therapists themselves, or the quality of their counsel. The stars are a rating of the website, not the therapist. An excellent therapist could have a lousy website; likewise, a lousy therapist could have an excellent website. The stars reflect consumer-safety issues including disclosure of information, security, etc.

Remember: It is not possible for me to rate therapists, because I cannot predict which therapist will be best for you. The interaction between you and your therapist is highly individual. Just because someone is good for me, wouldnt necessarily mean they are good for you. I encourage you to visit the websites yourself and form your own impression about the therapist. I am optimistic enough to believe that you are a responsible, intelligent consumer, capable of forming your own valid opinion, if given adequate information.
