At Tessera Collective, we understand the importance of finding culturally competent mental health care and support. One of the most frequently asked questions we receive is "Where can I find a therapist or psychiatrist of color?" We've created this national provider directory as resource to help answer that question. None of the providers listed here are employed by Tessera Collective, nor does Tessera Collective endorse their individual services. We encourage you to seek professional advice, including that of your personal physician or other qualified healthcare provider with any questions you may have regarding any mental health symptom or condition. If you are seeking a queer or trans provider of color, we recommend searching the National Queer and Trans Therapists of Color Network: http://www.nqttcn.com/directory
