Bob Cable has made my hypnosis experience the most uplifting self-improvement program I've ever had. He has been a caring counselor, and also very insightful due to his extensive background in psychology. I'm in a continuing series of sessions that have left me feeling better & better and looking forward to my goals without the self-defeating behavior that has plagued me in the past.

My husband and I have been to a few counselors. Not one of them compares to Ilisa. Ilisa saved our marriage. She has an unbelievable memory and gives excellent advice. She was professional and treated us both fairly and honestly. We will always seek her advice for our relationship as well as advice for our kids. I rarely give feedback but Ilisa is the best!

My session with Kim, is by far the best I've ever had. After a marriage that didn't work as planned, I decided to consult with Kim prior to giving it another go. She was very understanding of my concerns and she actually LISTENED to me! I have had consults with other counselors prior to this session and what a difference it makes when you know that your counselor is honestly invested in your situation. She listened to me as if she were my best friend, but never slipped out of being a devoted professional. I recommend Kim to anyone who is looking for an honestly productive counselor. Not only has she helped me better understand where I am in my life, she is also helping my teen son through a difficult and confusing time of his life. Kim Lohman is top notch!

When I first came to see Michelle, I was six months into a recovery program for codependency and six months out of a two-year relationship with a married man. Every day I was battling mental and emotional demons that were threatening to consume me at any point in time. Emotionally I don’t think I could have handled any more pain, any more tears than I was already living. Mentally, I was tearing myself down every chance I got, beating and hating on myself more than any person deserves. To say I had hit an all-time low would be an understatement. I was at the bottom. Death would have been a welcome relief. I learned about Michelle from my sponsor in recovery. I was already seeing small changes in my self-awareness and self-love by working the recovery program, but was still in so much unbearable pain that I jumped at the opportunity to further my healing. Having been to see counselors and therapists since I was in my early teens, I was familiar with how the process worked and even a little skeptical. But the appeal of this kind of recovery was that it would emotionally free me from my past. Making the appointment to see Michelle was the most hope I had felt in years. During my first meeting, Michelle asked me some general questions about where my anxiety stemmed from and what my biggest problem areas were, and along with some deeper probing questions that brought my emotions to the surface. We decided focused on my fear of abandonment and need to be “picked” by the people I love the most – from my nuclear family to my romantic relationships. Michelle guided me through my toughest relationships, using her intuition to advance the tapping and healing process, and lower my emotional attachment from a 10 (what felt like was 100) to a 1. I couldn’t believe it! I felt an openness in my heart space I’d never experienced before, a freedom that hadn’t existed. I could breathe. I could feel. I wasn’t scared anymore. It was as if the tares were being sewn back together, one at a time. Granted, I had a lot of them. But that was ok, because now there was a solution, not just a problem anymore. I have had the opportunity not only to experience the healing Michelle’s EFT practice provides, but to witness the freedom, strength and hope it brings to some of my most dear loved ones. I am incredibly thankful for her and the rapid healing EFT has brought to my life.

She is an excellent minister, always prepared with an uplifting message for me. In addition, on 3/12/2012, my partner of 9 years died. Bonnie immediately got in her car and drove from San Tan Valley to Glendale to spend the day with me. She made sure I would be okay. When so many ministers would turn their backs because this was a homosexual relationship, she showed true compassion. She even posted an article in this spiritual group's newsletter honoring the relationship and showing true understanding that love is love. Many times since, she has acted as a grief counselor for me. I am honored to have Bonnie as my minister, and even more honored, because she is a very good friend of mine. I am blessed to have her in my life.

I was having a very stressful time of it with a close family member, and Jivana knew exactly what the best course of action was for me in that situation. Jivana really ‘saved the day’ for me! I was so grateful to be able to work with her when I did. I’d highly recommend her as a healer, therapist and counselor. She is unusually insightful, sensitive and amazingly wise!

Linda does a fantastic job. Has really helped with my relationship - particularly anxiety and depression. She has taught me coping skills to help me deal with daily issues as they arise. She is caring, responsive and one of the few counselors who actually listens to me and structures my treatment plan to my specific needs. Of everyone I've been to (still with Linda) she'd be one of the few I would ever go back to.

Allyson helped me update my resume and cover letter to apply for work. The job was in her home office. She helped me there, and then emailed me with more suggestions. She gave specific advice on appropriate wording, told me how to make changes in the future for different purposes. She was very patient, very professional, and gave me information that has been useful since then. Allyson offered even more than I asked, thinking of aspects of looking for a new job and completing applications, and tailoring a resume and cover letter for different positions that I did not consider previously. She was very cheerful and encouraging. Nothing went wrong, I have no criticisms

My experience has been really good! Today was my first session but I feel like I was able to tell her about my issues and she was very intentional in her questions after to help me dig more into my issues. Overall I felt really good working with her. I've worked with other counselors but working with her has given me such a different and more enhanced experience, because she made me comfortable from beginning to end, to talk and help me with my issues and goals I want to accomplish.

Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

What is a psychologist?

A psychologist is a professionally trained mental health professional who helps patients navigate challenging life situations or mental health issues. To become a psychologist you must earn a doctoral degree; qualifying degrees include a Ph.D., Psy.D. or Ed.D. To actively practice, a psychologist must be licensed in their state and maintain good standing. Psychologists are trained to administer tests that can evaluate a patient’s cognitive strength and weaknesses, intellectual skills, vocational aptitude and preference, personality characteristics, and neuropsychological functioning, explains the American Psychological Association (APA).

A psychologist meets with patients in an office and may work with a variety of methods, depending on patient need, such as cognitive, behavioral or interpersonal.  According to the APA, common reasons a person may visit a psychologist include:

  • Dealing with depression, anger or anxiety over a long period of time.
  • Help with a chronic condition that is interfering with their lives or physical health.
  • Help with grieving and other abrupt transitions.
  • Overcoming addictions.
  • Managing chronic illness.
  • Breaking old and harmful patterns of thinking or behavior.

What are the types of psychologists?

Psychologists are healthcare professionals who use scientific methods to understand the relationships between the brain, environment and behavior. Psychologists may focus on research — studying how the brain and various environments drive behaviors to better understand the issues that trouble patients and society as a whole — or they may focus on practice — interacting with people using therapeutic methods. The American Psychological Association shares some of the more prevalent types of psychologists:

  • Clinical psychologists assess and treat mental, emotional and behavioral disorders.
  • Cognitive and perceptual psychologists study human perception, thinking and memory.
  • Community psychologists work to strengthen the abilities of communities, settings, organizations and broader social systems to meet people’s needs — such as improving support for victims of natural disasters, or working to improve health policies.
  • Counseling psychologists help people understand and take action on everyday issues, career and work problems, and serious adversity.
  • Developmental psychologists study the psychological development of the human being throughout life.
  • Educational psychologists concentrate on how effective teaching and learning take place.
  • Engineering psychologists conduct research on how people work best with machines.
  • Environmental psychologists study the dynamics of how people interact with their environments.
  • Evolutionary psychologists study how evolutionary principles such as mutation, adaptation and selective fitness influence human thought, feeling and behavior.
  • Experimental psychologists study cognitive processes, comparative psychology (cross-species comparisons), and learning and conditioning.
  • Forensic psychologists apply psychological principles to legal issues.
  • Health psychologists specialize in how biological, psychological and social factors affect health and illness.
  • Industrial/organizational psychologists apply psychological principles and research methods to the workplace to improve productivity, health and the quality of work life.
  • Neuropsychologists and behavioral neuropsychologists explore the relationships between brain systems and behavior.
  • Quantitative and measurement psychologists focus on methods and techniques for designing experiments and analyzing psychological data.
  • Rehabilitation psychologists work with stroke and accident victims, people with mental disabilities, and those with developmental disabilities caused by such conditions as cerebral palsy, epilepsy and autism.
  • School psychologists assess and counsel students, consult with parents and school staff, and conduct behavioral interventions when appropriate.
  • Social psychologists study how a person’s mental life and behavior are shaped by interactions with other people.
  • Sport psychologists help athletes refine their focus on competition goals, become more motivated, and learn to deal with anxiety and fear of failure around competition.

How much do therapists cost?

If you are experiencing a challenging time, have mental health difficulties, or just want professional guidance as you move through life, a therapist can provide relief, tools and structure. The national average cost for a therapist is $80-$100 per hour, although prices may be higher or lower depending on geographic location and the experience and training of the therapist.

Psychiatrists, psychologists and licensed therapists are all health professionals who offer various modalities of therapy. Ask questions about the type of therapy they specialize in (such as cognitive or behavioral, etc.) and their area of expertise (such as grief, anxiety, body image disorders, etc.) to help you find the right fit for your needs. Therapy sessions are typically 50-60 minutes long.  The patient usually meets with the therapist in their office; sessions may also be held remotely (via Skype, etc.) or in a clinical setting. Psychologists, psychiatrists and other therapists who have earned advanced degrees will typically charge higher rates than other licensed therapists. Depending on your diagnosis, your health insurance may cover your therapy costs.

Can a clinical psychologist write prescriptions?

To be able to write a prescription, a clinical psychologist must practice in a state that permits them to do so, and must either have a master’s degree in psychopharmacology or have completed the required advanced training program. According to the American Psychological Association (APA), five states currently permit psychologists to write prescriptions: Idaho, New Mexico, Illinois, Iowa and Louisiana. Many psychologists who are not able to write prescriptions work in partnership with psychiatrists, pediatricians or primary care doctors to help their patients who need medication.
