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.

I had a heartbreak and was looking for a counselor as I was feeling suicidal. Luckily I came across Arya on thumbtack and I'm so glad I gave him a try. He offers a free consultation, so I took the opportunity to talk to him and afterwards I felt my anxiety reduce as he provided techniques to not only feel better mentally but physically. So I set up weekly counseling sessions and I'm glad I signed up. Arya provides exact techniques that are practical and easy to follow. Before I started coaching with Arya, I was feeling completely hopeless. I took traditional talk therapy sessions and didn't see much improvement. I also took hypnosis sessions but the effects of that were only felt on the day of the session and day or two after. After seeing Arya, the effects of the statements he provides addresses the source of the grief and is thus long lasting so I have hope that I will fully heal. Arya provides natural remedies to alleviate anxiety and heal the pain that happens after a breakup, as well as guiding the way to get through it. His teachings are from his own personal experiences so it's easy to connect with him and follow his suggestions. He is very knowledgeable, patient, kind and empathetic to your circumstances, and he'll tailor his support to your specific needs. He provides flexible program options which make it easier to find a structure that will work for you. I highly recommend him if you're going through a heartbreak or any other painful life event and want to get your life back on track. I look forward to our ongoing work together, and am excited to keep improving my life.

I began working with Tatyana years ago while recovering from a severe break to my sacrum. It had been a few years since the break, but I had tried many different types of treatments and none provided me with any relief and my life had been substantially altered from my life pre-break. The first session got the pain I was feeling in everyday under control, but after that she began to work with me so I am now able to be nearly as active as I was before the injury. I would imagine it would be lovely to work with Tatyana without injury or pain, but her extensive background in healing methodologies, she is the best medicine for recovery.

Nancy is an esteemed and trusted colleague whom I have had the privilege of working with for several years now. Nancy's enthusiasm for the clients she works with is only matched by her experience and preparedness in the therapy room. She shows a consistent care for clients even when she is not "at work". She is hard working, humorous, authentic, and a wonderful option as a therapist whether you are an individual adult, in a couple, or seeking therapy for your child.

I’m so glad I reached out to Wade for counseling. He is such a talented therapist. He really made me feel safe and understood and I didn’t feel judged. Initially when I came to see him I was unsure if I should start therapy. I’m so glad I did! Wade has helped me to see things more clearer and I’ve gained better insight on the issues I came to address. I feel less anxious and depressed and have more confidence. He truly is a miracle worker! I’m just writing this review because I want others to reach out and not be fearful about getting therapy, as I had hesitated for way too long. Thank you Wade!

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.

      About

      I’ve worked as a therapist for 8 years, which includes private practice and a variety of Bay Area agency positions. I'm a Licensed Professional Clinical Counselor, and received my master's degree in Counseling Psychology from SFSU in 2013. I specialize in helping individual adults overcome psychological conditions that result, in part, from past trauma and difficult family environments. Painful memories and incidents of trauma are often the cause for symptoms of anxiety, depression, substance abuse, low self-esteem, insomnia, and sexual dysfunction. Through the use of a highly researched technique known as EMDR Therapy, I can help you resolve or reduce the emotional, psychological, and physical health symptoms associated with trauma. As you work through painful memories and emotions, you will gain the personal mastery and emotional freedom needed to revive your life. You can read more about EMDR therapy and my therapeutic style by visiting my website linked at the top of this profile.

      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.

      Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
