Psychology Today & UMA

November 28, 2018

Because we live in a world that revolves around the internet, people rely on websites to provide options for their everyday needs.  It’s no wonder that people are increasingly searching online to find the right therapy or life coaching appointments. One of the most popular search engines for mental health is Psychology Today. Psychology Today provides a large variety of providers based on location and specialties, which can be very helpful. But, what happens when you’re ready to book with a provider that you’ve found online?

Playing phone tag with providers is never an easy task, and can sometimes feel so uncomfortable, that it discourages people from booking. Here at UMA Health, we are trying to tackle this problem,  with our revolutionary new platform that allows you to book appointments online, and find out more information about your provider at any time of day. Our website has a variety of providers, spanning Life Coaches, Therapists, and more.

Many clients tell us that they cross-reference Psychology Today and UMA Health. Once a potential client finds a provider they are interested in, they want to find out more information and book an appointment without having to wait.

UMA makes searching for the perfect mental health provider or coach seamless, and no insurance is required! All prices are listed transparently upfront, and you can easily pay through the platform with your credit card like you would on Seamless or Uber. While Psychology Today is a great resource to find options, UMA helps you with every part of the process, from start to finish, and it can all be done quickly, conveniently, and confidentially online.  

Here are some things to keep in mind when searching for the perfect provider on UMA:

  1. Choose a provider close to you: You’re more likely to attend your sessions when they are closer to you. Keep in mind that weather delays can be exhausting, so sometimes it’s convenient to ask a provider if they can offer video/phone sessions if need be.
  2. Do your research: Find out where your provider went to school and what their certifications are. Also, find out what they specialize in so that you can make sure it will be a good fit. All of this information can be found on our provider profiles.
  3. Don’t Stress: The providers you are looking at are there to help you in a judgment-free zone. Our team provides email, phone, and direct chat support, so you’ll be sure to find a provider that will work best for you.
  4. Ask questions: If you have a question, you can always reach out to our friendly customer service team   We are happy to help you with any questions about UMA, or about a specific provider. Feel free to also come up with a list of questions for your provider or things you want to talk about before your session.

With the rise of technology, mental health resources are much more accessible these days whether you use Psychology Today in combination with UMA Health or just UMA, you’re sure to find someone that can improve your overall well-being.
