New website makes it easier for therapists and clients to find each other
Online PR News – 18-September-2013 – New York, NY – TherapyfindR announces the official launch of its new website, www.TherapyfindR.com. TherapyfindR is an online marketplace for therapists from a variety of disciplines. The current focus is on speech-language pathologists, with a planned expansion to include other types of therapy in the near future. TherapyfindR connects therapists and potential clients by offering a comprehensive list of pre-screened therapists with multiple sub-specialties. The pre-screening process entails verification of ASHA and state licenses. A simple search allows one to enter specific criteria and read through therapists’ profiles with the option of sending secure messages to begin a dialogue with the therapists. Additional features allow one to connect with other members and access helpful therapy-related articles and posts. A licensed professional “Concierge” is available for those who require further guidance and support.
Co-founder Lauren Turk, a licensed speech-language pathologist in the New York area, says that families or individuals in need of speech therapy have varying needs; some qualify for services provided through the state, while others may not qualify for state services and there are those who choose to have private services for their child. Currently, the search for a speech-language pathologist is quite difficult. TherapyfindR aims to help the individual to search for a therapist with ease.
“We know how difficult this process can be and finding the right therapist for your family is a necessity. A handful of referrals or a general search just doesn’t provide enough information. With TherapyfindR, you can make an informed and comfortable choice,“ says Turk.
The service is free to individuals, with a monthly listing fee charged to therapists to post a profile.
