About Therapist Reviews

Archived Q&A and Reviews

Here are some things to know about the therapist reviews on the BPN website:

  • These reviews were all posted by BPN subscribers, who were responding to a request from another BPN subscriber asking for a therapist recommendation.
  • All reviews prior to 2016 appeared originally in BPN's Recommendations newsletter or Parents of Teens newsletter, which were emailed to subscribers only.
  • We receive 3-5 new requests each week for therapist referrals. Many requests never receive any responses, and those that do, typically receive 3 or fewer responses.
  • Multiple recommendations for the same therapist could indicate a well-regarded therapist, but it could also indicate: (1) one person who has recommended the same therapist repeatedly over the years, or 2) a therapist who has asked her/his clients to post a favorable review to BPN in response to a recent question.
