Member question: How do I change what's visible in my directory listing?
That's a great and important question. Did you know that you can manage how much of your listing is visible to the general public, to members only, or just to the website's administrators? The new instructions page on our website outlines the easy steps. As always, contact us anytime you have questions about your membership and managing your LGBT Therapists member profile.
