An exclusive therapy referral service for professionals
Making the decision to go to therapy is hard enough and finding a culturally competent therapist who can meet your needs shouldn't be the thing that stops you from getting all the healing you deserve.
We wish it wasn't so hard to find a therapist—
When you're already low on energy, doing the researching to find a therapist can feel daunting.
Sadly, this is the thing that stops most people of color from actually starting their healing journey.
With Therapy Concierge, we do the work for you so once you've made the decision to heal, everything else just falls into place!
Here's what happens:
You schedule a 30 minute phone consult for Therapy Concierge
One of our licensed social workers will call you at the designated time to learn about your needs and preferences. She will help you understand your options and know what to expect from your first therapy appointment.
Then, we do all the hard work while you kick your feet up. We verify your benefits, scour through the best directories and find culturally competent therapists. We only recommend the highest trained licensed professionals for your situation.
Within one week, you'll receive a custom list of therapists who are waiting for your call.
You schedule your therapy appointment and get started with the healing process!
You'll have 30 days from the date you receive your referral list to request more options if for some reason things don't work out with your new therapist.
We created Therapy Concierge for you if:
You've been thinking about getting a therapist for some time now but haven't taken any action. Or maybe you started to look but got annoyed after the first 2 therapist didn't return your call or said they weren't accepting new clients.
You know yourself well enough to know that if you don't outsource this, the probability of you getting your butt into therapy anytime soon is slim to none.
You're the kind of woman who doesn't like it when you get scheduled with the physicians assistant instead of the doctor. You want an expert but the thought of researching the difference between a psychoanalyst and a psychologist and deciphering credentials like LPCC, MFT, NPC, PhD, PsyD gives you a headache (seriously WT*)!
Your life is busy and you are truly trying to put yourself first. However, time is money you know that the 5 to 10+ hours it will take you to figure all of this out on your own is better spent closing a deal in the office or spending time with your family.
As a person of color, you can't just see anyone and the last thing you need is to be referred to a therapist who you have to explain your existence to and can't just be— yourself. You'd love to get a referral from someone you can trust, like an auntie who also happens to be a doctor.
Here's what we'll do:
We'll do all the tedious research of navigating your benefits, explaining to you how/if to use them, and calling therapists to confirm whether they are accepting new clients.
We'll only recommend experts. We refer to the highest credentialed person for your situation.
We'll save you money by saving you time. We'll deliver your referrals with easy to follow instructions within one week.
We'll match you with a culturally competent therapist of color. You'll never have to explain why you prefer to see someone from a certain background. We get it!

Frequently asked questions
Why does it take a week to get my referrals?
This is a custom service. We do not send out pre populated referral lists. A real life clinician will review your needs and identify the best resources for your unique situation. It takes time to verify your insurance benefits, research local resources in the state you live, confirm licenses of providers, and check availability.
Will I be able to use my insurance?
We will ask about your insurance during your consult. If you are interested in using your benefits, we will make sure to provide approprioate referrals.
Will you find me a Black therapist?
We will ask about all your preferences during your consult including gender and race/ethnicity. We will do our best to find therapists who align with your request but cannot guarantee there will be an exact match in your area. We will send you a list of therapists who most closely align with your request without compromising quality of care.
What is your refund policy?
Once you book the service, you can reschedule your consult up until 24 hours before your appointment. While the service is non-refundable, you can transfer the service to another person or save it to use at a later date.
Can I buy this for a freind?
Yes, but the person who attends the consult should be the person seeking therapy so we make sure to get the best information possible.
Can I use this in my state/city?
We can provide this service for all 50 states!
Who are your providers?
We scour our resources for the highest trained providers who offer culturally compotent care. We have our own private directory of providers and we also take advantage of local and national directories and resources. We look for providers with extensive training in evidence based care models.
