Let me begin by stating that working with Arya has been a phenomenal experience. I originally discovered him through Yelp one night when I was looking for nearby counselors. He's listed down as a life coach and counselor, but what really caught my eye was his 5.0/5.0 rating and number of reviews (40+ at the time). It's very uncommon for someone to have such a perfect rating alongside a large quantity of reviews. I thought something weird was going on so I decided to send in an application for an intake appointment. To be honest I had low expectations of our meeting. I've met with counselors in the past and they hadn't been super helpful to me. Not to discount their abilities, it just more or less felt they were reading off of a script of sorts or working with me from an emotional distance. Of course there must always be some professionalism in play, I don't expect them to suddenly become my best bud after a session. I just want some recognition that I'm a struggling human being on the same level they are versus a patient to dissect underneath a microscope. So color me surprised when Arya did not act like my past counselors! It genuinely feels like Arya will get in the dirty and grimy pits of your life and sit there alongside with you, yet still providing a personally-catered path to somewhere a little cleaner (more appropriate to label it as possessing more vitality, I don't know my audience so I am avoiding usage of that potentially confusing word). You're never forced to do something uncomfortable, but if you're willing to be scared of trying something new then he'll help you ease into it. He's also a pretty smart dude. He doesn't flaunt it whatsoever, it more so comes off from how knowledgeable and skilled he is in several varied areas. If you're an individual that thinks in a certain way and have trouble adapting your perspective then Arya is great for speaking in terms you will understand. There's no sense of condescension on his part, but rather he completely understands that we all operate in our own unique way. It's like if you're trying to express a certain idea in English to a guy that only speaks Spanish. Arya primarily speaks English but he's also a successful polyglot. I didn't know how much of a welcome blessing it was to finally have someone understand the place I operate from until I met him. This definitely accelerates the process of getting unstuck in certain old habits since he can recognize them and notify me of what's going in without too much confusion flying around. I haven't worked with him extensively on making myself a more desirable worker or starting up businesses so I can't speak from that standpoint. I have worked for several months now on learning how to enjoy life and myself on a deeper level. I had no clue I would be here the first time I met him. I urge you to try out an intake appointment with him. His online presence is decent but it doesn't even hold a candle to his physical presence. It may change your life in a similar way to how it's changing mine.

After two years together, my boyfriend and I have been contemplating couples therapy. I always thought couples counseling was just for married people who despised each other but I couldn't have been more wrong. After just one session, I feel better. We have been learning the importance of communication and how to rebuild trust especially in a long distance relationship. Diana gave us direct feedback on what we were doing and how we can improve individually and as a couple. We had good takeaways and feel better about how to comfort each other if similar issues arise again.

Arya is a master counselor and life coach. He brings a potent combination of skills into his work: a sincere heart, a highly intelligent mind, and a wealth of professional training and experience. Every session feels expertly held in a professional yet humane container; the real issues are addressed, directly and sometimes sternly, but always with an authentic kindness and care. Arya has helped me to: -cut through my insecurities and obstacles around my artwork -focus in on and take more action with my career in more ambitious and visionary ways -navigate very old and difficult patterns with my family -recognize and begin to authentically relate to things I was avoiding about myself/my life in a way that has led to way more relief, freedom and positive action -and just more generally, being someone in my life I can trust to help me through the ups and downs of being a human I'll share one more thing: though I didn't experience this directly, my dear friends went to Arya for couples coaching/relationship counseling. They said they received incredible benefit from their work with Arya, and that if not for his intervention, they don't know if they would have made it. They spoke about his acute attention to detail, especially in tracking the subtle habitual ways that they would shut down or leave their hearts, while giving them practicable alternatives to create the kind of connected, intimate, and fulfilling relationship they were longing for but couldn't find. There's a reason (many reasons) why Arya is at the top of this yelp list. He is absolutely worth it!

He was genuine and didn't rush us. He used the paperwork that we submitted when we arrived to lead the conversation. My husband and I are working toward a better relationship yet it was good to talk with Paul as a mediator, and he helped start the conversation that we can continue as a couple. If needed, we'd hire Paul again without hestitation.

Matthew has been a really great counselor to work with. He brings empathy and excitement to our relationship counseling sessions, and provides much needed insight to moments when we get caught up in our historic relational patterns. Our sessions are a good mix of hard work and play. Matthew always has ideas and exercises we can do to work with the material that arises. He is communicative and professional.

About

I am a licensed marriage family therapist who specializes in hypnotic approaches to change. This may or may not include formal hypnosis. I work with couples, families and adults over the age of 12. I do collaborative work, helping you achieve your aims and desires for yourself and helping you grow new ways of doing things, so that you can achieve them. Sliding scale is discussed and accepted. I am helping you to awaken that wisdom and direction which is your birthright, so that you can be free of encumbering thoughts, behaviors and relationships.

About

I founded Be Love Community Counseling to provide safe, healing space for people who have been oppressed, marginalized or have an identity outside of the dominant culture. Historic trauma and past hurts may show up as having challenges in relationships, depression, anxiety, anger management issues, low self-esteem, underachievement, oppositional behaviors, etc. You may think that something is wrong with you while what you're experiencing may actually be a result of something that has happened to you or your ancestors. Therapy is empowering as you may increase awareness about what is keeping you from freedom to live the life you desire. We may meet for a brief period, and you'll learn and practice coping skills, or we can take time needed to focus on the root of the problems and identify the best solutions for you. You may gain deeper knowledge of your true self and what creates joy and ease. I use an "eclectic" approach to personalize counseling to meet the unique needs of the individuals who I serve. This means I use a variety of different treatment modalities including, but are not limited to eye movement desensitization and reprocessing (EMDR), family systems, solution-focused brief therapy, play, sand tray, expressive arts, spiritual, narrative, mindfulness, psychodynamic and humanistic therapies. Issues that may be addressed in counseling are many, but I focus on growing your strengths and supporting you to live the life that you desire. I don't pretend to have all answers, but I'm honest and will share if I can help.

About

Our thoughts create our feelings! Our feelings create our urges! Our urges create our actions! Our actions create our life! We each arrive here whole, perfect, complete. Somewhere along our journey, we get caught up in the events of our story and the soup of societal thought; we fall into the illusion that we have somehow become less perfect, less valuable, less capable and less loveable, or that we got stuck in traffic and weren’t at the port when our ship came in. We find ourselves with any number of unwanted conditions of dis-ease in our lives, wondering what the heck happened. There is hope! There is a solution! By identifying our hidden beliefs and replacing them with the spiritual truth about ourselves, we release the illusions. We are healed, and our lives are transformed. It is my great pleasure to give you the tools, the guidance and the support you need to transform your thinking and to claim your birthright of unlimited abundance in every area of your life. Spiritual counseling differs from traditional counseling or psychotherapy, in that the primary focus is on the here and now versus the past. I work with with you through the application of spiritual principles, asking compassionate questions and actively listening, to identify hidden beliefs which block your awareness of truth, that you are a perfect individualized expression of spirit. When your hidden beliefs are surfaced, I work through the art and skill of spiritual mind treatment, at the level of mind, to reveal truth. When truth is revealed, healing occurs. I have specific expertise in the areas of addiction, LGBTQ, relationships and past trauma issues. I provide individual, couples, family and group counseling and visioning, as well as group and business consulting, counseling, and visioning. My clients express that my gentle, down to earth, practical approach provide a safe environment in which they can honestly invest in their healing process and learn effective tools for continuing to grow far beyond the counseling experience. I am available to meet with you at the Center for Spiritual Living - Santa Rosa and by phone. I am also open to traveling to your location on a case by case basis. Namasté. Rafe A. Ellis, RScP, RAS, MBA-OD

Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

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.

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.

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.

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.
