Frequently Asked Questions

Do I get any free months if I sign up now?

You sure do. You'll automatically get your first six months free when you sign up. The promo code SIXFREE will be automatically entered into the promo code box. 

You have two types of subscriptions, Supporter and Lite. Whats the difference? 

If you sign up as a "Supporter", the eventual cost will be $30 a month, once we are out of the beta period. Supporters receive access to all the special deals with our partners. As a Supporter you'll get to choose between five organizations that 10% of your monthly fee will be donated to. You'll also have a chance to be featured on the homepage. We plan to include other perks for Supporters that we are not quite ready to announce just yet.  A "Lite" subscription costs just $20 a month, after the beta period ends, and gets you a profile on the site and access to all our special partner deals. However, you won't be able to select an organization to donate 10% of your monthly fee to and you won't get access to certain special features down the road.  You can change your subscription type at any time.

Can I cancel anytime?

You sure can. You can cancel before or after the beta period is over. This will never change. 

Is TherapyDen a national directory?

Yep! We decided to make TherapyDen available to everyone in the country, based on what we heard from therapists while we were building it. 

So TherapyDen is just for the U.S.?

Yes, that's correct. For now at least. We plan to expand outside of the U.S. one day, but we can really only handle one country at a time. 

What about free access to the SEO course for therapists? 

As promised, by signing up with TherapyDen you'll get free access to the search engine optimization course built by me, Jeff, specifically for therapists. Once you create an account, fill out your profile and activate your listing, you'll get access to the Member Benefits section where you can get free access. It's regularly $300, so it's totally worth it in my opinion. Just listen to what a couple therapists recently said about the course:

"Ever since slowly making all the adjustments recommended in this course, I have noticed a massive difference. I no longer have listings on any other websites and rely completely on SEO & my social media platforms (not even running Adwords anymore!). In other words, I am spending $0 on marketing right now. My practice is finally full and overflowing! I am so grateful!" Mackenzie M.

"I am basically a Luddite.  he last thing in the world I wanted to do was have to learn about SEO and to figure out how to improve my website's visibility.  But Jeff's tutorials are very easy to understand and my ranking went way up without that much effort.  I highly recommend his course." - Margaret M.

How is TherapyDen any different than Psychology Today?

Lucky for you I created a video about that. But to quickly summarize, much better search filters, intuitive design and user experience, therapists can choose from 5 different organizations to donate 10% of their monthly fee and our mission is to challenge racism, homophobia, transphobia, and other forms of discrimination. Oh! And TherapyDen will pay our local and federal taxes. You can't say that about Psychology Today because they're based in the Cayman Islands so they don't have to pay their taxes. I feel good about promising never to relocate to the Cayman Islands. 

Aren't there other bonuses if you sign up with TherapyDen?

Good question! Yes there is. If you check out our benefit page and scroll down a bit you can see all the partners that we have teamed up with so far. In the coming weeks, TherapyDen will be offering special deals and bonuses for services that those companies provide. We are super excited to announce them. But the only way to access the bonuses is to make sure that you have an active profile on the site. And some of the bonuses will be time limited. So it's smart to make sure that your profile is activated and updated.

So you're a white dude that made a therapist directory that challenges racial and systemic oppression? What's up with that?

Yup. I am a white, male identified person who is the face of TherapyDen. I know that I have certain privileges that other people don't get to experience because of how lucky I am to be born into these circumstances. But I don't want to be the white dude who just sits back and reaps all the privileges and lives in ignorance while doing it. Screw that. I want to be the white guy who fights for justice and exposes unfairness in the system. I want to work with diverse people and shine a light on different voices that move our society and mental health community forward. 

I regularly and often consult with people that are not white, heterosexual and male identified. I have created an advisory board that you can find on our about page that have heavily influenced the content of the site and all of the search filters. I am continuing to reach out to people who would like to be included on the advisory board. 

But because I am white and live in a society that allows me to forget about my privilege and not be aware of it at all times that means every now and then I will do or say something that is ignorant or not fully attentive to every aspect of racial and social injustice. And if that happens I am 100% open to feedback. You don't have to worry about my white fragility. If you feel inspired to let me know honestly and directly how I am coming across or that TherapyDen isn't living up to it's mission, then I will be more than willing to address the issue. 

Essentially, I don't just want to be a fan of equal rights. I want to do something about it. And TherapyDen is what I'm doing.
