The session with Bob Cable was in regard to my anxiety going to the dentist. The day after the session I went to the dentist and was noticeably more at ease, and my blood pressure was significantly lower than usual!

I was really looking forward to going away to school but my freshman year turned out to be a disaster. I’m kind of an introvert but that never stopped me from making friends before. The school was so huge and there were so many people in my dorm that it kind of freaked me out. A lot of them, including my suite mates, were into partying, which I’m not, so the constant noise really got to me. I was too ashamed to tell my parents how unhappy I was, so I just tried to do my best. But I got so anxious and depressed I went to see the school counselor. She was nice and sympathetic but not really that helpful. I thought I was going to lose it, so I finally called home and told them what was going on. My dad is from the city where the school is so he asked some of his friends there about therapists who were good at working with people my age. I ended up with a list of people to try and saw three of them before choosing Ilisa. I’m not sure if her having kids in college made a difference but she seemed to understand exactly what I was going through, which was a big relief. She also helped me deal with the incredible stress and depression I was feeling with EMDR. It’s a pretty weird process, but it works! She also helped me understand the reasons why I was having such a hard time and helped me come up with strategies for dealing with them. I’m in my sophomore year now and pretty much back to my old self. I’m glad Ilisa’s there and will go back to her if I start to feel anxious or depressed again.

Kimberly is amazing! She works with my 9 year old son. She has been very understanding with situations of discomfort to make my son (and me) feel comfortable. She went above and beyond to put my son at ease in this new experience, trying different environments and activities. This has changed his fear and anger over counseling into excitement for his time with her. I'm so that we found Kimberly. She's truly a blessing!

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.

Feeling sad and heartbroken from a recent break up.. I wanted the hurting to end. I wanted to be free from the anxiety controlling my thoughts. I knew I needed to do something about it fast and wondered if being hypnotized could help me. I found Jeff on Youtube and sent him a message about what's troubling me. He replied with some advice and, although a bit challenging because of the time zone difference (I'm in Asia, and Jeff is in the US). We spoke on skype. Before getting to my current problem, he said he wanted to find the root-problem and trauma from my childhood that was causing my phobia regarding rejections. We did an exercise where I visualized a scene from the past. I don't know what happened but he was able to remove the hate and pain. I then felt safe and relieved. I can still see the scene in my mind but the painful feelings are gone! Now I'm a Believer! I told my best friend about the session and now she wants to give it a shot. And the day after.... The pain is still gone! You are Amazing! Thank you Jeff! - Pinky Manual, Manila, Philippines

If you are in pain, being it physical or emotional pain. Even cigarette smokers! Direct Mindpower is right for you. I have gone through chronic back pain for years now. I have had physical therapy, taken painkillers (which I don't recommend to anyone) I have tried acupuncture, and chiropractors. Nothing worked, and I was getting frustrated. I had a friend tell me to try pranic healing, which I wasn't very familiar with. Trust me, it works. Not only does the pain go away, but the feeling of having a clear mind and a clean body is what I needed. Not only does Direct Mindpower make you feel comfortable and relaxed, they are affordable and a lot of times have FREE pranic healing clinics different days of the week. I highly recommend Direct Mindpower to everyone! Please check out Direct Mindpower!! They are amazing, and this is the one and only place I go to feel the real me again!!

I have known Dharmesh for a couple of years now and am truly happy to have found him!!! Dharmesh has the rare ability to truly connect with people of all different backgrounds. He really listens and helps you discover what's right for YOU. He is truly passionate about his work and is professional in his approach and easy to talk to. He will tell you exactly how it is initially "the clean truth" then help you understand through knowledge on how to help yourself. I would highly recommend him to anyone looking for a psychotherapist (social anxiety,depression -me)

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.

    I was a weekly patient of Paul's over the course of several months, during which time he helped me tremendously with significant issues of insomnia, anxiety and enduring grief after the death of my beloved dog. Over the course of Paul's treatment using acupuncture and herbs, I was able to stop taking an anti-anxiety medication which I had been dependent upon for sleep and daily function for more than two years. In addition, I was able to release significant muscle tension through receiving Paul's Chinese cupping treatments. Paul's compassion and attentiveness are outstanding. Not only is he a skilled practitioner who clearly explains his technique and his treatment plan, he also always made me feel thoroughly taken care of as a patient and answered any questions that arose for me. Paul's clinic is a beautiful healing sanctuary; the treatment rooms are aesthetically pleasing and his massage tables are extremely comfortable. Unfortunately, I am no longer living close enough to Paul's clinic to receive treatments with him, but if I were, I would definitely be continuing as his patient.

    I went to see Dr. Martha for weight loss in 2013. Since then I have managed to keep the 60lbs from a size I lost off(18/20 down to a 10) While going to her office for weight loss I discovered a whole lot more of great services her office has to offer. I was able to work on myself from the inside out and I feel like I am a completely different person today. I am no longer scared to leave the house by myself, I embrace it! I wish I could clone her so she was able to help more people because she truly is a god send!

    I had the privilege of working with Khara 6 years ago in a therapeutic setting. Due to 9 years of consistency in the field, she continually shows loyalty to her work environment and her clients. When providing therapy with clients, Khara carries a fine balance of compassion and intellectual challenge. This fine balance with the client's involvement promotes growth and effective ways to manage challenges. Khara is very insightful and provides great guidance. Khara is extremely professional and prioritizes the needs of her clients and for this reason I highly recommend Khara as a therapist.

    There is no Cookie Cutter approach fitness. I know what it's like to work with someone who didn't really care about your well being and your needs and its not fun. My approach is listen to you, assess the situation and develop a solution that best fits your needs while also being flexible and sustainable for you long term. I work very close with my clients and love getting to know them and what they love doing outside of the gym and well as them getting to know me on a personal level.

    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.
