The Entertainment Industry Therapist Finder (EITF), which only includes listings for mental health professionals who have previously worked with clients in the entertainment industry or who have personal professional experience in the industry themselves, is moving to a new home. HelpPro, which provided our original home has closed its doors due to retirement and all special finders like ours were transferred to onlinetherapy.com.
We have spent the past several months searching for the best new home for the EITF and are pleased to have found it at GoodTherapy.org. We are currently in the process of getting the mental health professionals on the EITF moved to GoodTherapy.org which we hope to have completed by early November.
If you are looking for a therapist during this transition period, please try both sites:
The Entertainment Industry Therapist Finder was developed in response to an industry survey conducted in the fall of 2019. The results revealed just how prevalent the problem of finding therapists who understand something about the unique culture and stresses of the entertainment industry is. Many respondents expressed frustration with therapists who consistently made suggestions that were unrealistic given the long working hours and employment challenges so many in our industry face. They also expressed the difficulty of scheduling appointments with therapists who kept only 9 to 5 office hours.
If you know of a therapist with the required experience, please tell them about the finder and ask them to register at GoodTherapy.org or email their contact info to [email protected] and we will reach out to them. We will continue to actively recruit therapists for the finder that meet the industry’s needs.
