The Psychologist Locator is provided by the American Psychological Association Practice Organization ("APAPO"), a companion organization to the American Psychological Association ("APA"), as a reference source of demographic information on individual member-psychologists in the United States and Canada. It is not intended as a tool for verifying the credentials, qualifications, or abilities of any psychologist listed. Inclusion of a psychologist is not and does not imply endorsement or recommendation by the APA or the APAPO. Likewise, the omission of any individual does not indicate APA or APAPO disapproval.
If you believe you need immediate assistance, please call your local emergency number or the mental health crisis hotline listed in your phone book's local government pages. If you do not live in the United States or Canada, contact your national psychological association or local mental health facility for information.
