Findapsychologist.org and the National Register

FindaPsychologist.org is a project of the National Register of Health Service Psychologists designed to provide educational resources and self-help strategies to the public, and to provide consumers like you access to a database of verified psychologists who meet requirements for the National Register Health Service Psychologist (HSP) credential and distinction. These psychologists do not work for the National Register, but are practicing nationwide through healthcare offices or private practices. Educational resources and self-help strategies are for informational purposes only and are not intended to replace professional treatment from a licensed healthcare provider.

The National Register of Health Service Psychologists was established in 1974 and is the largest credentialing organization for psychologists and psychology doctoral students. We are an independent nonprofit organization dedicated to improving healthcare by identifying psychologists who meet specific education and training standards, and by verifying these professionals to consumers, healthcare organizations, and regulatory bodies. The National Register currently credentials 10,000 Health Service Psychologists and has banked credentials on behalf of more than 3,500 psychology doctoral students and postdoctoral trainees. The National Register is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization located in Washington, DC. Learn more.
