Welcome to KidsTherapyFinder.com

Our Mission

We provide resources and information to equip and empower parents and their kids with therapeutic needs.

Our Goal

Parents will quickly find top-rated pediatric mental health professionals, wellness providers, and therapeutic products and other resources for their child or teen. 

Mental health disorders, including depression and anxiety in children, are increasing every year. A child's mental and emotional health is just as important as their physical health. Without treatment, children with mental health issues are at increased risk for school problems, juvenile justice involvement, drug and alcohol abuse, and even suicide. They are also more likely to have continued difficulty with mental health as an adult.

15 MILLION youth in the U.S. meet the criteria to be diagnosed with a mental health disorder.

22% of children and teens ages 3 to 17 in the United States are affected by a mental, emotional, developmental, or behavioral condition.

20% of these children and teens receive care from a specialized provider.*

25% parents find it difficult to get their child mental health services.

50% of all mental health conditions begin by age 14 and 75% by age 24.

We CAN do better! We HAVE to do better!

Our Founder, a social worker and play therapist, often hears from families and other professionals (adoption workers, other therapists, social workers, case managers, pediatricians, church leaders, school counselors, teachers and administrators), who are desperately trying to find quality mental health providers, therapists or programs. Of course, they are searching for referrals they can trust and who will provide them with the support and answers they are looking for.

It is common for parents to share that time after time, they call and email multiple providers and programs only to be left with unresponsive inquiries in the form of unreturned calls or unanswered emails. If they happen to actually connect with a referral, they may be told by the provider that they are not a good fit for their child, the provider does not have availability, they are unable to accommodate after-school appointments or they do not accept their insurance. This is so overwhelming for parents.  It’s no wonder that many kids who need the services are not receiving them. 

KIDStherapyfinder.com believes that finding the best mental health and wellness resources for children and adolescents doesn't have to be so hard!

KIDStherapyfinder.com is committed to making it easier for families who are searching everyday for mental health and wellness providers to find the help they need and the care their child deserves. With KIDStherapyfinder.com, parents and other helpers can find the best services for kids based on the needs of the child and family.

Meet Our Founder

Michelle Rigg, LCSW, RPT
Licensed Clinical Social Worker & Registered Play Therapist

is the co-founder with the vision behind KIDStherapyfinder.com. She has a Master's degree in social work, and over 25 years of experience working with children and their families in a variety of settings, including private practice, foster care, adoption, and residential treatment. These experiences all involved working with children and teens with a vast range of pediatric physical, social, emotional and mental health needs, connecting them with services, and advocacy.

Our Story

As a social worker and therapist, Michelle is frequently asked for referrals for counseling for children and teens with mental health needs, and help locating services like occupational therapy, physical therapy, residential treatment, psychiatric support and alternative education. Like other caseworkers and agency managers, she attempted to keep her own provider lists updated with current contact information for clients and co-workers, usually in Binders or file folders!

Networking events and resource fairs were great ways to connect with agency staff and resource partners, but it was difficult to manage stacks of brochures and business cards after these events. If you're a parent of a child with therapeutic needs or work with them as clients, this probably sounds very familiar!
Michelle wanted an easier way to connect clients and the community to current information to families and this led to the creation of KIDStherapyfinder.com.

Since 2013, we have been collecting contact information on local services and products and adding it to our website. Our list of partners throughout the United States is growing rapidly! Parents and other professionals seeking assistance for children with therapeutic needs can now quickly find the help they need in their local community or access national providers who can serve them. With KIDStherapyfinder.com, service providers and vendors selling products specifically for children with therapeutic needs have an easy and affordable way to advertise.

Whether your children have come to you by birth, or through adoption or foster care, this resource is for you.  It is our hope that parents of children with therapeutic needs, as well as caseworkers and other helping professionals seeking services, products, and information for their clients, find KIDStherapyfinder.com a valuable resource.  

The demand for mental health & wellness care for kids & teens and support for their families is increasing at an alarming rate.

Families need your help!
