My 8 year old suffered from terrible separation anxiety. So bad that she couldn't go to school. It was heartbreaking and we tried different types of therapy and then I found dr John. He was very helpful and informative, we talked on the phone a couple of times before our meeting.My daughter felt safe with him right away and the hypnotherapy session was amazing. After one session she was back to herself! I'm so thankful for Dr John McCrail, he's the best!

Coming from someone who has gone to therapy since I was 4 I must say..... Stephanie is absolutely amazing. My husband and I have seen her twice so far and we feel so much better. She has helped us communicate and feel safe. She is so warm and easy to connect to, she makes us feel comfortable opening up even about the most intimate details. She gives us exercises to do in between sessions so we keep improving. I would recommend her to everyone. She has won us for life and has really helped save our marraige. Thanks Stephanie we love and appreciate you!

Jaimi is such an intent listener and genuinely cares about the emotional well-being of people- not just her clients, but everyone around her. She is truly patient, thoughtful, gentle with her approach and so insightful- she has helped me tremendously with personal dilemmas and I would refer any close friend or family member to her for therapy.

Grawben provided me with a Hypnotherapy session. It felt really good to get things off my chest, vent, and let go. Grawben was amazing, calm, collected and professional. She brought guidence and light to me through my therapy session. She is helping me to develop skills to think in positive ways and to attract good things into my life. I believe it helped me and I will be continuing to see her. She is amazing! Don't miss out on a great opportunity to help yourself grow and heal.

    Before I met Dr. Stephanie I suffered with depression on a daily basis. I saw her for therapy for about a year and my depression is now gone! She was understanding, patient, and gave me guidance. Each session was relaxing and therapeutic and I left feeling renewed and rejuvenated. I learned tools that helped me with relaxation, self-love and acceptance, and how to make new friends and build healthy relationships. THANK YOU Dr. Stephanie, you are amazing and I appreciate what you did for me, and since our time together I now live a joyous life.

    Working with Saman for almost 3 years and I have to say that he has blossomed into a great professional. To be honest I was really skeptical if therapy was right for me, seeing as I only met him a year or so into his internship so I wasn't sure if he was able to help me. He is a very patient, compassionate and understanding person who takes this field of work to heart...It's pretty much his calling in life. Fast forward two and a half years later, I've learned ways to cope with my anxiety and have gained the confidence to accomplish my goals in my life.

      'Natara has been my guide to the ultraworld for years. Her caring and open way leads me to discover new and exciting things about myself and others. Her integrity and sense of quiet balance are the gifts which set her apart as a teacher, healer, and shaman in a workshop or large ceremony gathering. I look forward each year to my month-by-month reading, and have traveled to participate in her sound bath therapy and Reiki sessions. I especially recommend her "Shift" workshop which is like an unrolling of one big bounteous medicine bundle for everyone to find something (or everything) to enjoy. Thank you, 'Natara for your unwavering and bright light in this time of great and accelerating change.

      "I have tried different types of therapy in the past. I was referred by someone with bi-polar to this type of therapy. It had helped her so I tried it. Of all the different types of therapy I have been to, this by far is the one that has helped where even my family has noticed the difference. I like it because it literally reprograms your mind from negative thinking to positive thinking. You don't have to talk a lot or go into all this detail and relive your traumatic experiences. It is different based on your "traditional" types of therapy but it really works. I would recommend this to anyone." -Mrs. A.R.L., Mortgage Consultant

      About

      I am a certified yoga therapist Rx and a certified level III reconnective healing practitioner. I am trained in the comprehensive yoga therapy program from Loyola Marymount University. In yoga therapy, we are trained to work with many different diagnosis. For instance, some of my clients have various types of cancer, peripheral neuropathy, low back pain, sciatica, neck pain, prenatal, postpartum and so on. We have been trained to approach the diagnosis in a holistic mind-body-spirit approach. We will work on healing your heart from the inside out. We will also work on the alignment and understanding the physics of your body. Quantum physics has proved that science and spirit are simply two different sides of the same coin, and that observation changes the outcome. The reconnective healing work is a separate modality I use to accomplish our holistic goals. It is new, effective, different and potent. It is truly something to experience.

      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.
