Black Therapist List is a directory of Black Therapists that was created in 2020 by a black Psychotherapist in Ontario, Canada.
BTL was created so that black people who are seeking mental health support could have one central hub to locate Black Therapists in their area.
There are many barriers to black people seeking out mental health support. At BTL We recognize that the relationship between client and therapist is essential to positive outcomes in therapy. Having a therapist with shared cultural experiences can create a space of commonality and understanding which can make it easier for clients to open up and more likely to get the help they need.
With BTL people have the ability to filter their searches by location, specialization etc. so they can find exactly who and what they are looking for.
We hope this will be a valuable resource for the black community.
