Greetings! I am not accustomed to leaving reviews for "services rendered" - but I feel compelled to share my heartfelt feedback on the treatment that I've received at Coronado Hypnotherapy. I sought out hypnotherapy to quit smoking. It seemed impossible, but I'd been smoking for 25 years. Not always a lot, but always a little ... and over the years, more and MORE. I'd never considered hypnosis before; it seemed "too far out there" for me. But I mentioned the idea to my husband. Surprise! Like me, he also remembered a "long-ago-friend" for whom hypnosis had worked. I decided to research hypnotherapists on the internet, and I found a number of providers in the Valley. Yet most of the hypnotherapists that I "found" weren't compelling enough for me to take a "risk" and reach out for help ... UNTIL: (1) Coronado Hypnotherapy's website was so professional; (2) Bob Cable's services were highly rated by his clients; and (3) Fees for treatment were very reasonable. After several more weeks of trying to quit smoking (and continuing to fail), I called Coronado Hypnotherapy. Bob promptly returned my phone message and succinctly answered all of my questions. It quickly became obvious that I was speaking to someone who was passionate - and a little humorous - in his approach to a problem that had me tangled up in knots. He immediately put me at ease. I scheduled an appointment with Bob based on that phone conversation. I figured that I had nothing to lose. In retrospect, I had no idea how much I had to gain. Bob follows an innovative, established, and highly successful protocol for stopping smoking - for good! By "good," I mean both consciously and subconsciously. That way, giving up smoking will actually STICK. I should know: I've “paused” my smoking numerous times before. But this time, and by following Bob's program and guidance, I am QUITTING smoking! Bob's patience, professionalism, and compassion have also allowed me to “open up” to him (not my normal approach, I've never been one for "therapy") and address situations/behaviors/responses that were affecting ALL areas of my life. I wasn't dealing with my thoughts and feelings. But unbeknownst to me, my body and mind WERE ... much to the detriment of my physical and mental health. In closing, I highly recommend the comprehensive services provided by Bob Cable and Coronado Hypnotherapy. Schedule an appointment with Bob to accomplish - and even identify - your goals. You will be richly rewarded for any amount of time spent working with such a caring, skilled, and accomplished healer. As for me, I cannot possibly thank Bob enough for his help.

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.

I enlisted the help of Jivana Kennedy about 3 years ago. At the time, I was sorting out the ending of a long marriage and some issues related to my health and wellness. Jivana was caring, professional, knowledgeable, and dependable to work with on all occasions. Jivana is deeply familiar in the areas of holistic healing and alternative therapies and her guidance has been immensely helpful. I have enlisted the help of Jivana over the past three years, and each time I found her to be a wise and kind support over some of life’s thorniest issues. It’s for that reason that I am pleased to be able to give Jivana Kennedy a five star review. Gary Wc

Dharmesh helped me get organized and focused in a time of transition. He is supportive, optimistic, and non-judgemental. These qualities allowed me to see past my limitations and move forward in my life. He has a great understanding of human psychology and the mental health field; working with him gave me a new perspective and really helped me accomplish some large goals. Thank you, Dharmesh, for everything!

Erica is really "the child whisperer." I brought my daughter to see her for depression and to work through some things that had happened to her when she was younger. In just a few months she's so much happier (she's actually smiles sometimes!) and just seems to like herself much more. I think Erica has been such a blessing to our family.

    About

    People want answers. Why do I feel the way I do? Why am I suffering from emotional turmoil and mental anguish. For many people, counseling is effective short term, but even the most complex scientific models of therapy cannot provide answers they are seeking. The answer is this: We are more spirit than we are flesh. We cannot adequately address mental health without addressing spiritual health. Originally founded as Live More Abundantly in 2012 in Phoenix, AZ, Faith Solutions to Mental Health has served individuals and families around the United States through its unique integrated form of coaching, faith-based therapy, biblical psychoanalysis, pastoral counseling, teaching, training and consultation. At Faith Solutions, we confront and address mental health from the realms of the spirit. We address deep rooted issues such as generational curses, the spirit of suicide,’ emotional wounds, spiritual trauma, open doors, the lusts of the flesh…and more, as it relates to a person moving forward in their mental health. Most importantly, as the ultimate goal of services, we lead people back to the creator. We teach that ultimate healing comes through pursuing purpose in Him. At Faith Solutions, in addition to working with individuals and families, we educate, train, and equip professionals to address mental health from not only a scientific model, but also through the lense of faith. We train pastors, leaders and those with the gift of helps on how to combine deliverance ministry with an effective counseling ministry in the local church. We also service the community by responding in times of urgent need.

    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.
