I reached out to Dr. Lake originally to find a way to get my sister and my mother talking again after a 4 year dispute. We all met together and Dr. Lake was able to pin point out some of their major issues and get them to agree to stop talking baldy about each other. As I sat listening, I discovered there were things that I needed help with personally to get my life back on track and to be a positive role model to my two girls. I went back a second time by myself and I left feeling like I had a complete mental and emotional massage. I felt like I was able to see my life in a new perspective that would allow me to worry less, be less stressed out all the time, and focus on the relationships that mean the most: with my husband and my children. I plan on returning a few more times to continue to learn how to become a better person and grow stronger mentally so I can be more stable with my kids. I would highly recommend Dr. Lake’s services to anyone who may be dealing with any sort of personal issues, some that you may not even be fully aware of, to get your life in check and be a better person for yourself and your family.

I was blown away by Liza's Ignite Your Energy Program. We did the sessions on Skype, and Liza has a gift; she honed in on me and brought forth ways to rev up my energy. My health and nutrition is good, and she showed me some powerful ways to make it better – ways that have made a noticeable difference over the past two months. I also had Liza do some of her Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP) magic with me. I’m an NLP practitioner myself, and appreciate having a good NLP session to break through those emotional blocks we all have, which stand in the way of us giving and getting the best in our lives. Liza helps me get re-inspired about my life again, which keeps me living it in a more positive and meaningful way, so I can have more fun. I recommend Liza to anyone who wants to feel better in their skin! I recommend that you check her out!

I had lost all hope of finding a connection with my 17 yr old. Our relationship was to the point of complete disconnect and her grades had drastically dropped. Then, fate had it, that Tara Cavazos came our way. Tara's sincerity, her professionalism, her ability to listen, her honesty, her patience, her dedication to her job is evident in the time that she has given to both us individually and in family sessions. Yes, there are many family therapists out there, but, to find one who has a vested interest in the client's well being and mental health to the level that Tara Cavasos has is RARE. She is passionate about her work and goes above and beyond in helping her clients. Our sessions are helping me with issues beyond my relationship with my daughter--to address the individual as a whole--this is so important and often overlooked by us. Life is daily work-- And I am so very grateful for Tara Cavasos -- her professionalism, her compassion, her honesty, her responsiveness, her attention to the client and her integrity is by far, unparalleled to any prior counseling experiences I have ever had.

I took my first yoga class taught by Rebecca almost 2 years ago and have been religiously attending ever since. Rebecca is one of the most naturally gifted teachers that I've ever met in any profession. She has the uncanny ability to provide individualized instructions catered to the specific needs of each student while maintaining a focused goal and constructing a nurturing and playful environment for the group as a whole. Incorporating the mastery of her own physical practice with spiritual, philosophical, and physiological knowledge she's helped my grow physically and mentally beyond what I thought I was capable off. So don't think twice....highly recommended!

Revvell is an experienced and supportive coach who is adept at helping us uncover and focus on issues that need to be brought up and examined. She uses several innovative techniques to help us easily get in touch and deal with hidden mental/emotional blocks. I have grown tremendously personally, and in my business, the last few months. I have gotten clarity and confidence and changed some old habits that were sabotaging my success. I recommend Revvell for anyone who is motivated to get out of their rut, grow and thrive.

I had the pleasure of working with Christina, as my individual therapist, through a painful divorce. Christina had my back the entire time and helped me work out a lot of the emotional stress that was eating me up. She's caring, always available, and willing to go above and beyond at anytime. She has an excellent reputation and has worked with addiction, mental health, and substance abuse patients and has dealt with all related aspects of treatment. She has helped many people with career and life transitions and continues to be a very important person in my life. I highly recommend her. Its always good to have a therapist who has been through what you are going through in life. She understands and offers valuable internal tools to help you work through whatever the issues are.

About a year ago, after a myriad of programs, meal plans, and diets, I decided I needed to make a dramatic change in my life. I was scared to work with a "health professional" because I had been to them in the past and felt dismissed and unheard. Gun shy as I was, I was determined to make a change and knew I needed help. I am so grateful to the universe for sending Oliva to me. For the first time ever I felt listened to. I wasn't "in trouble" if I ate something "wrong." I was given concrete and realistic steps to build a healthier lifestyle and saw immediate and tangible improvement in my life -- including but not limited to my digestion, skin (I've always had acne), weight, and overall happiness. She LISTENS, she CARES, and she is EXTREMELY knowledgeable. I cannot emphasize enough how incredible my experience with Olivia has been. Where historically I dreaded check-ins and calls with health professionals, I genuinely look forward to speaking with Olivia -- to discuss my successes, my good days and bad. I unequivocally recommend Olivia as a dynamite professional and stellar human being.

      Leeanne is the most awesome Practioner I have ever worked with, I saw her for brain mapping and neuro feedback at Sovereign Health, but she always gave much more than that in her caring, compassionate, and insightful response to my questions about my mental illness. I've never had a therapist who was so well informed, with so much scientific data to back up her work and recommendation. not only did she help me she read me like a book without judgement, and made me feel loved , lovable, and set me on the right path to recovery with her recommendations. I will forever be grateful for having known her and being one of her clients.

      About

      I provide mental health services to individuals and families dealing with emotional and/or personality disorders from diverse backgrounds. My main specialties are working with people who are experiencing paranoia delusions, schizophrenia, and bipolar disorders. My goal for each individual and/or their family is to help everyone understand and deal with the various aspects of the disorder and gain an understanding how they can help one another be supportive and to grow. In the therapy sessions, a multi-modality approach is utilized. This means the therapeutic approach is individualized that best meets the needs of the client and not the same method for everyone. The aim of the therapy is to help each person find the answers he seeks and become empowered and self-reliant. My fees are very reasonable, and in some cases, I customize my fees to the meet the budgetary needs of my clients. I work in Riverside and Pasadena, from Mondays through Saturdays.

      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.

      Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
