Find an EMDR Therapist Directory Profile
Full Members receive a profile listing in our Find an EMDR Therapist directory. The information for the profile is taken from two different sections of the Account tab on the member account: Personal Info and Contact Info. Below is information on how to update the directory profile information in these sections. It may take up to 48 hours for added/updated information to be reflected in the directory.
A directory profile listing is a members-only benefit of Full membership. Associate, Student, and Retired memberships do not include a directory profile listing. If you are interested in upgrading your membership, contact EMDRIA. EMDR Certified Therapists and EMDRIA Approved Consultants who do not hold EMDRIA membership do not receive a directory profile listing. If you are not an EMDRIA member and would like a listing in the directory, click here to join EMDRIA.
Update Your Directory Profile
Go to Account > Personal Info
Profile Name Format
At the top of the Personal Info page, you will see the name information used for your member account. Some of these fields are used on your directory profile. Below is the name format used to display your name in directory search results and at the top of your profile page:
[Prefix][First Name][Middle Name][Last Name][Suffix],[Credentials]
If you complete the Preferred First Name field, it will be used only on your profile page under your full name with the label "Preferred Name:" If you leave this field blank, you will not see that label on your profile page. The Preferred Last Name and Title fields on your member account are not used in the directory.
Please do not use all caps in the name fields. For consistency in the directory, names entered in all caps will be reformatted.
Show in Directory Checkbox
In this top section, you will also find the "Show In Directory" checkbox. In order for your profile to appear in the directory, this box must be checked. If you don't wish to have a profile in the directory, leave this box unchecked.
Additional Profile Information
Because the rest of the information used for your directory profile (including Credentials) is stored in custom fields, it is located in a separate section called "Find an EMDR Therapist Directory Information" near the bottom of the Personal Info page.
Please only list your credentials in the Credentials field and use acronyms (e.g. LPC, LCSW, Phd, etc.), as appropriate. Do not put any credentials in the Last Name field on your member account. Adding credentials in both the Credentials and Last Name fields will duplicate the information on your directory profile name. It also impacts EMDRIA's use of your member account record. If credentials are found in the Last Name field, they will be removed.
Please do not list EMDRIA certifications in the Credentials field. The directory system automatically adds an EMDR Certified Therapist, Consultant-in-Training, or Approved Consultant designation tag to your profile based on your active certification status. The directory has a search filter specifically for these tags.

Mark Address as "Work" Type
For an address to appear on your directory profile, be sure to mark it as the "Work" type. "Home" and "Other" address types do not appear on the directory profile. (For EMDRIA's purposes, be sure you also have a Billing and Shipping address marked on your member account.)
Use Street Address for Best Results
Google Maps is used for the Location search. Be sure to use a full street address if you want your profile to be found for this type of search. When entering an address, the system may suggest a different format to use. To ensure the best results for your profile address being found in results, use the suggested address.
Mark Phone as "Work" Type and Check "Save as Primary Phone" Box
One phone number will be linked on your directory profile to allow someone to place a phone call if viewing on a mobile device. For this purpose, you need to mark your phone number as "Work" type and check the box for "Save as Primary Phone".
Check "Save as Primary" Box
Our directory utilizes an "Email Me" contact form in lieu of displaying a member's email address to help cut down on spam the member may receive. Additionally, a spam filter is utilized for contact form submissions before the message is sent to the member.
To indicate where you would like to receive directory contact forms, check the "Save as Primary" box for the email address.
You can add various links to your profile. The link name will be displayed as the Type chosen, e.g. Website, Facebook, Instagram.
