New User-Friendly Website Therapists.com Aims To Remove Anxiety From Locating Local Therapists
OAK PARK, Ill., May 10, 2012 /PRNewswire/ — For many people, finding a good fit with a new therapist can be challenging, time consuming, and anxiety ridden. For many therapists, finding a website to clearly express your credentials, area of expertise and personality to potential clients can be nearly impossible. The launch of a new, easy-to-remember website, Therapists.com, addresses both of these issues, allowing a user-friendly comprehensive search function for the public to locate local therapists, and intuitive, rich profiles to enable effective marketing for therapists.
From the inventors of the original therapist search engine in 1996, Therapists.com provides an all-inclusive portal for the public to not only find a psychiatrist, but also to access articles, blogs, and helpful resources on mental-health concerns. After extensive polling of both patients and therapists on the features they found essential, Therapists.com helps therapists create a richer profile than any other site. This gives potential patients the exact information needed to make an informed decision.
“The developers of this website have combined mental-health knowledge and Internet expertise to develop a trusted online resource that both therapists and consumers need,” said Chris Stout, Psy.D., MBA, Licensed Clinical Psychologist.
Consumers can search for therapists by proximity to address, allowing for pinpoint accuracy far above the typical zip code or city searches. Therapists can provide individual video interviews to give potential patients a real glimpse of their personality, as well as hearing from the therapist in their own voice. Research shows that the harder it is to find the right therapist, the less likely a person will get the help they require.
Therapists.com is the brainchild of C.J. Newton, developer of the first therapist search engine in 1996. The site takes into account comprehensive polling feedback from consumers and therapists alike, and is taken to the next level using Newton’s experience optimizing websites for corporate clients and managing national and local-marketing campaigns as founder of SEO Logic (http://www.seologic.com). The website functions as a complete mental-health portal, with social-media integration, blogs, and community interaction to create the ultimate resource.
