Why do you focus on medical conditions?
Find Empathy’s founder, Dr. Meghan Beier, was trained as a health psychologist and then received additional training in neuropsychology and rehabilitation psychology. In her roles as a clinician, speaker, and researcher, Dr. Beier continually heard from patients, families, advocacy groups, and medical specialists how challenging it was to find specialized mental health providers. Mental health professionals who “got it” – who understood a particular diagnosis.
Find Empathy was created to help bring down this barrier. We offer convenient, high-quality continuing education to increase the capacity of mental health providers to support individuals with serious medical diagnoses, chronic illnesses, and disabilities.

I am a therapist, how can I join the free directory?
Find Empathy is here to help individuals with serious health conditions find someone who knows, understands, and has experience working with their medical diagnosis. Therefore, we expect all providers on our listing to meet the following criteria:
- Know the commonly used medications and/or medical interventions used to treat each medical condition
- See at least 2-10 patients with this medical diagnosis in a given month
- Feel confident enough in your knowledge of the condition, and its management, to be able to discuss a patient’s issues with their medical provider
If this sounds like you, sign up to join the free, online Find Empathy Directory. We’ll review your information, build your free listing, and send patients directly to you.
