Therapist Members Review in New Video

A new video from features therapists speaking candidly about the benefits of membership,’s Mission and Vision, and their favorite aspects of being a member. We often receive written kudos and recognition and include these on our Testimonials page, but this is our first time compiling them to share these positive member experiences and recommendations with others. This unscripted video features five therapist members from the Pacific Northwest area, as well as founder and CEO Noah Rubinstein, LMFT, LMHC.

Watch the video here:

Therapists spoke about the ease of setting up a profile on and their satisfaction with communicating with the Member Support Team. Therapists also mentioned their appreciation for the number and quality of referrals they have received from “It’s really a no-brainer to me. If I just got one client for the entire year, [membership] would easily pay for itself,” said Joseph Broome, MA, LMHC. “To me, was the perfect match.”

“It’s my lead source for clients,” said Sarah Swenson, MA, LMHC, “which tells me that my visibility is greatest through, as opposed to even my own websites.”

Therapists interviewed in the video mentioned membership perks like continuing education credits and publication opportunities, which offer further visibility and an opportunity to educate people about mental health issues and therapy. “I’ve gotten to be a Topic Expert; [my articles] link from their social media platforms, as well as to the profile that I have posted,” said Carolyn Russo, MS, LMHC. Others spoke generally about resources from, including special offers and discounts for members and educational materials for people interested in learning more about psychology and psychotherapy.

“I couldn’t be happier with my overall experience as a member,” said Mariel Pastor, MA, LMFT. “I’ve been a member for years, for good reason: I get great referrals, and honestly, the continuing education resources are so plentiful.”

But chief among the benefits making outstanding to these and other therapist members is our dedication to demystifying and depathologizing therapy, applying a person-centered approach to treatment, and reducing stigma around mental health issues—tenets shared by our growing number of members. “It’s their mission statement and their values that I really connect with,” said Amber Jaworski, MA, LMFT, CMHS. Noah Rubinstein founded in 2007 on these principles, after hearing too much evidence that therapists were perpetuating pathology in therapy, abusing their power, and working to address diagnoses instead of people.

“I started because I had this mission and vision for mental health,” said Rubinstein. “Along the way, we built a really good directory, and we have a great continuing education offering.” We hope you’ll find what you’re looking for in!
