    For me the most exciting thing about my experience with Revelation Counseling is that I am in a completely different place than when I started! Coming to revelation counseling has been one of the best decisions I've ever made for my mental, emotional and overall health. I know that the skills I've learned will last beyond the counseling and will help me get closer to my future and my best self.

      Dr. Chung has been a blessing in a very dark time of my life. He reassures me that I am not fighting my illness alone, and if I need to I can always contact him on his personal phone. He makes it clear that he is fighting my illness alongside me, together with me, and not just another doctor that I see monthly with a report. He asks detailed questions and answers in a way that I can understand.

        After over 10 years of marriage, my wife and I had a lot to be thankful for, but had also developed plenty of problems along the way. We were eventually in crisis mode (problems with intimacy, money, partnership) when we decided to start seek marital counseling. Faye was referred to us by my individual counselor from another practice. I am so grateful for making that call to Faye. I don't like talking about my own problems, at all. But my wife and I both found a safe place with Faye. She helped us talk in ways we never did before. She helped us understand each other's personalities and wants and needs. She's fair and never took sides. I highly recommend calling her no matter what your situation is. She's great at what she does.

        About

        Dr. Sharareh Namjoo Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist Clinical Hypnotherapist It has been my life’s greatest pleasure to help and witness people let go of blockages of their past that interfere with their happiness and fulfilling in life. It is so heart warming to mentor people to pass through their differences and conflicts by deepening love and trust using positive constructive communication skills. My 16 years of psychotherapy with diverse clientele and cultures has allowed me to accumulate wide variety of tools and treatment styles to help individuals and families through the challenging stages of their life; supporting parents with tools and communication to guide their children and their teens during those turbulent years. Life stresses can bring about anxiety, depression and variety of different psychological difficulties. What happens to us in life does not define us, what a matter is to heal, let go and build our lives. I serve English and Farsi speaking clients.

        About

        I offer psychotherapy, counseling and consultation services. I specialize in helping people grow and change, so that they can lead happier, more successful lives. I do this by fostering a warm, friendly, and therapeutic relationship—a relationship in which you will feel safe to express your secret dreams, your greatest joys, and your deepest fears. I work hard to be an attentive, interactive, and nonjudgmental listener. I believe that in order to help you, I must fully understand and empathize with where you’re coming from. I am a client-centered therapist. This means I view therapy as a healthy partnership between two equals—you and I. While I, the therapist, have some expertise to offer on the process of growth, healing and change, I know that you, the client, are the expert on yourself and your life! In a way, I see myself as a life consultant. You have a life to live with personal goals for love, career, finances, family, friends, creativity, spirituality, and esteem. When one or more of these areas are not progressing the way you would like, I can help you gain a fresh perspective. I will empower you to define problems and explore solutions. Better yet, I can offer support, coaching, and encouragement as you bravely tackle the scary parts of life. How can I help?

        About

        I believe in empowering the individual to create a balanced and fulfilled life. My belief in helping others is that there is no “one size fits all” approach to working through personal opportunities. Every person and matter is unique as the individual themselves, and thus, I find the reason to learn as much about the person and their surroundings as possible. I take on an eclectic approach to psychotherapy and aim to create a safe, supportive and client-centered environment in which individuals, couples, families, and children can find empowerment within the therapeutic process. I am fluent in Spanish.

        About

        I am a licensed Marriage and Family Therapist, Certified Hypnotherapist and have been working in the field of therapy since 1999. I have worked with children, adolescents, and adults up to age 80, across a wide range of socio-economic strata. I have helped people with a variety of challenges from depression, anxiety, phobias, behavioral issues, addictions, severe mental illness, and developmentally disabilities, as well as having extensive experience and training working with families. I specialize in supporting people to eradicate their phobias and panic attacks, and to conquer their fears and anxiety. I have over 10 years experience doing so. I am licensed psychotherapist, with additional training in hypnotherapy and NLP. I employ a variety of methods, according to the specific needs of my client. My work with clients is individualized, never cookie-cutter or one-size-fits-all. I respect and work within the context of the individuality of my client’s experiences, outlook, thought-processes, emotional triggers, values, and goals. My practice overall focuses on empowering people to be their best self and to take effective, purposeful actions to have the life they want. I use a genuine, compassionate, eclectic, clinical approach in helping the client according to their individual needs and motivations, focusing towards solutions. In the first visit, I work to get a clear picture of my client’s issues, needs, strengths, and weaknesses. I look for relational, situational, as well as internal, influences affecting the client. I tend to see my clients as complex individuals rather than simplified, textbook diagnoses. My experience as an immigrant, raised in this country from early youth, has also given me insight into the complexities inherent in a multi-cultural existence and has made me more aware of diversity challenges in this society. I also speak Farsi.

I specialize in working with adults and teens who have poor body image, low self esteem, and eating disorders. I have over 12 years experience working in an intensive treatment setting.

        About

        What separates me from many traditional therapists is my informal approach to psychotherapy, which I believe creates a more genuine relationship. My psychotherapy style is not for everybody, so the first three sessions are used for "consultation", which allows me and my clients to determine whether we are a good fit for treatment together.

        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.
