About the Lifegiver Directory

The "Why" Behind the Lifegiver Clinician Directory?

Because connection is what everyone is looking for

Military & First Responder Families

Service Families need to connect with clinicians

Military and first responder families are under an immense amount of pressure. Finding high quality help is difficult when you don't know what you are looking for. The Lifegiver Directory makes this step easy. Families looking for hope are able to search for culturally competent clinicians easily as well as organizations that support them. Families can search for providers that are military spouses, veterans, first responder spouses, and even search clinicians that take their insurance. The Lifegiver Directory also provides a way for families to search clinicians that are providing online telehealth, or distance counseling. Using the searchable Telehealth list, this platform opens up new opportunities to creatively get the help they need.

Service Organizations

Organizations need to connect families to clinicians

Non-profits, businesses, and other organizations that work with service families want to be fully focused on programming and services, many of which do not include therapy or intensive treatment. These organizations want to ethically direct service families who need this level of care to competent professionals without changing their programming. By utilizing and referring their families to the Lifegiver Directory, everyone wins.


Clinicians need to connect with families

Clinicians rarely get training in business, outreach, and marketing in their degree programs. Finding the clients you are passionate to serve can be challenging. The Lifegiver Directory makes the clinician's practice visible to service families that trust the process and values of the Lifegiver brand. Lifegiver also partners with larger organizations that work with service families who are always looking to refer to culturally competent providers giving them extra visibility.

Clinicians need Telehealth to be searchable

Directories, including insurance companies have been trying to figure out a way to make telehealth searchable. Lifegiver understands that telehealth is the modern way to provide services anywhere in the state. Telehealth makes it possible to expand a clinician's practice and for many active duty military spouse clinicians, makes their career portable. The Lifegiver directory not only allows clinicians to categorize as a telehealth provider in their practice listing, telehealth is fully searchable.

Clinicians need to connect with CEU Opportunities

Continuing education is always a concern for licensed professionals. Lifegiver partners with organizations that offer continuing education and other training that can build the clinician's portfolio and help them carve a more credible niche to treat service families- simply by joining the directory. The Provider Dashboard features service organizations as well as opportunities of interest to clinicians.

Hear from service families...

"We live a life where we can’t pretend evil doesn’t exist...where always believing the best in people can lead to my husband never coming home. It changes him which can then lead to fear, anger and bitterness on the spouses part. We wrestle with not fitting in anywhere, feeling like single parents, and shouldering the changes we see in our spouse on our own. This life is isolating and we are guarded to outsiders who don’t seem to get it. We need understanding- not anecdotes by someone who has never faced the ugliness of humanity day in and day out. We need affirmation that we aren’t broken or crazy."
~First Responder Spouse
"We DONT have support if we don’t go and advocate heavily for it, we’re scared of our husbands superiors, of there being a problem, and of losing everything as a result of his career. Our homes our children’s schools our insurance.... we can lose what little stability we have in life."
~ Military spouse
