Searchable Databases for Therapists (Updated Jun 2020)
« on: January 29, 2015, 08:53:35 PM »
A common problem for many of us seems to be locating a therapist who is trained in and experienced with treating trauma.  The searchable databases below are free of charge and can help you find a trauma therapist who provides treatment in their office and/or by distance (Skype, telephone, live chat).

There is an OOTS form "Locating a Trauma Therapist" that you may find useful in your search. You may want to have a look at this excellent resource "How to Choose a Therapist" by the Sidran Institute which also has an explanation of the different types of therapists (scroll down to "Alphabet Soup"). 

International
United States/Canada


Note: If there is a database for the country you live in that's not listed here, please feel free to post it and I'll add it to the main list.

I searched "http://therapists.psychologytoday.com/rms/prof_search.php" and they don't have C-PTSD as an option -'Trauma and PTSD', yes.
Oddly, even Google doesn't recognize it because I did a search on "c-ptsd therapist" in the town near me and it only brought back PTSD results. I'm sure there are experts out there, but the search engine used may not provide the option. It's silly.

Odd isn't it as I do see "Complex Trauma" used a lot if not CPTSD.  But we're in the DSM under PTSD so I guess that may be one reason.  Anyway, tks for the link WN, I'll add it to the list above.

This isn't specific to CPTSD but it might help someone narrow the search to clinicians that specialize in trauma work as all EMDR therapists have at least some training in trauma.

Hi SadieMist - thanks for the link! 

I just wanted to note that this DB is for T's who use EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing).  You need to ensure that the T has specialized training in Complex PTSD as most have training in treating PTSD which is somewhat different. (That said, many of us have both PTSD and CPTSD, so if that's the case just ensure your T can treat both in an appropriate manner using EMDR).

Hi folks.
I am brand new to the forum, so I'm probably going to make some newbie mistakes.
I just moved from the SF Bay Area to the NYC/Northern NJ area. I am looking for a therapist who understands and/or specializes in C-PTSD. I was wondering if anyone in the group can make a recommendation for a therapist in NYC or close to NYC. Thanks! Best way to reach me is at my email: JeffKramer99@gmail.com
Thank you!

Hi and a warm welcome to OOTS GoodChild  :heythere:   

Hopefully there will be a member who does know a good T in your area but if not the searchable databases in the first post might be helpful.  If there are trauma informed therapists anywhere it would likely be where you are. 

Are you OK with having your personal email in the forum? We encourage members not to include personal info because it is the internet and there are trolls and such.  If anyone does have a recommendation they can just use the PM (Personal Message) function to send you the info and a number will pop up beside "My Messages" at the top of the screen if someone responds.   If you do want to delete your email add in your post, just hit "Modify" under "Actions on the right side of the post and you take it out.

Hope you find a great T  :hug:

Here's a list of UK Council for Psychotherapy registered / regulated therapists, you can search by topic and EMDR is on the list too if people are seeking that specifically: https://www.psychotherapy.org.uk/find-a-therapist/
