The award was founded in the Northwest United States. The award was begun after building frustrations about the difficulty of being able to differentiate between useful quality therapy tools and expensive but ineffective ones. We are made up of volunteers that help build the reputation of quality therapy tools and facilities. Each award is given after a panel of Licensed Mental Health Therapists, Licensed Psychologists, Licensed Psychiatrists, and/or Licensed Social Workers review claims about an item or facility. This ensures that there is data from evaluated peer-reviewed scientific journals to ensure each product is safe and effective if used as intended. We do not charge any fee for our review services but do ask that applicants consider giving a donation and to help cover our costs of purchasing the product for the reviewers.
Here at Counselor's choice award, we are driven by a single goal; to do our part in making the world a better place for all. Our decision making process is informed by comprehensive empirical studies and high quality data evaluation. We strive to build productive relationships and make a positive impact with all of our pursuits.
