If you provide services to clients sorting out sexual identity concerns, and if you follow the Sexual Identity Therapy Framework as a general guide to your work in this area, please consider contacting ISSI to post your contact information on our Referrals Page. We regularly receive requests for services in areas around the U.S., and posting information on this page will allow people interested in services in your area to can get directions (and a map) and contact you.

If you seeking professional services, please note that ISSI does not license or offer certification of competence to any person listed on the Referral Page. Rather, ISSI allows professionals to list themselves and to indicate compliance with the Sexual Identity Therapy. Information included in this referral list is provided by the clinicians themselves, and ISSI does not seek to verify and does not warrant the accuracy of the information provided by the members.

Persons who use this directory for help in seeking a mental health professional are urged to be wise consumers and inquire directly about a particular clinician’s qualifications. Factors which may be important to ask about include the clinician’s (1) education and training, (2) licensing or certification, (3) professional experience, (4) area(s) of specialization, and (5) fees and eligibility for insurance payments. Any legitimate professional will be happy to answer questions about such matters.
