We have experienced various different styles of massage therapy, but none have come close to the varied skills and practice of Stephen. As so many have mentioned in their review, Stephen was extremely professional and priced his service fairly. We even decided he needed to be paid more for the lengthy time in which he spent with each of us, and his highly skilled knowledge of massage therapy. He also incorporated energy healing and chanting in his work with us - we loved that, as it brought a new level of relaxation in the room. Stephen also continues to learn and educate himself in his field. He exhibited a great breadth of technical terminology, which helped us learn more about our bodies and how to take care better care of ourselves. We look forward to Stephen's next visit.

Leslie was warm and easy to talk to, and she did a great job of explaining Timeline Therapy and how it is useful. She was also terrific about checking in to see if I had any questions. She was extremely present with me, listened intently, and really worked to help me see my timeline and the goal I placed in it clearly. I look forward to working with her on bigger issues in the future.

I had deep doubts about submitting myself to this kind of therapy , finding it really hard to trust anyone. During my sessions I started feeling a huge relief when I found myself able to trust not only Eva, but myself in a huge array of situations which ultimately led to a better experience of living and profound and new found optimism in my future. I am extremely thankfull for this and would encourage people to dig deep into themselves with the support of her.

Diana is an incredibly warm, empathic, playful, and nonjudgmental therapist. She really accepts you as you are and whole heartedly wants to make changes with you. I am always impressed by her ability to make sense of things and reflect it back to me in an alternative way. She has opened my eyes to so many patterns and defenses I have, and has done it in a way that felt kind and safe. I would really recommend her to anyone I know.

The biggest benefit I get from Kip is knowing I have a scheduled, recurring time each week to work on my mental health. It's easy to get lost in the madness of the work week and avoid spending time on personal growth. Kip gives me something to anchor to no matter what's going on at work, I have my Kip appointment to look forward to and hold onto as a constant in my life. My productivity has definitely improved on the job; my mind is much more focused as I work on my mental health with my Kip therapist on a weekly basis. It's the mental equivalent of going to the gym on a routine basis; it feels good doing that for myself, and that positivity comes through in my work.

      I have known Srini for over eight years and continue to be inspired by him. He is an incredibly intelligent, generous, authentic, and compassionate person. As his client, you will feel supported, understood, and enlivened. He cares deeply about his clients and his work and develops strong connections with his clients. I imagine you will look forward to your weekly sessions with him, not only because he is a masterful therapist, but also because you will most likely have fun doing it.

        Diana is the smartest, most insightful person I have ever met. She changed my life for the better and I highly recommend working with her. She never makes you feel like you are another person that she's collecting a check from. She really cares. See Diana if you are seeking some therapy. She is a great resource and I am sure she could help many different kinds of people.

        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.
