Culturally specific psychotherapy directories/search engines

In the Psychology Today directory, you’ll see that therapists of diverse backgrounds may appear in search results, even after filtering for specific cultural groups. That’s only because the system regards cultural competency as a skill, not an identity. As a result, many therapists may have listed that they can work with all diverse populations. Read the profiles thoroughly, and use discretion. Don’t give up on it, as The Psychology Today directory is arguably the most robust therapist directory. You’re able to filter by counseling issues, cultural issues, psychological disorders, and even insurance plans and virtual therapy providers; and you’ll also be able to view each therapist’s credentials, and sometimes even their fees.
