He was wonderful! He is very professional and seeks to help the couple all along the planning process through to your wedding day. What's stands out is how much he truly cares about you. You can tell he does this with the intention of helping couples. He also did premarital counseling for us and we truly made a friend in him. He is a real friend who is there whenever you need him most. When a mistake was made on our marriage license (not his mistake), he was there to help work it out for us without hesitation. Overall, he was knowledgeable, helpful, and truly cares about the people he works with. We were lucky to have him as our counselor and wedding officiant. We highly suggest him!

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

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

About

CIP's mission is to provide quality mental health counseling services to low-income individuals and families in Marin, so that they may re-establish mental and emotional well-being and live satisfying and productive lives. CIP offers short and long-term outpatient psychotherapy on a sliding-scale fee basis to adults, children, families, and couples who would otherwise be unable to afford such services. For over 30 years, CIP has played a vital role in the continuum of service in Marin County and acts as a safety net for those in need. Last year, CIP provided an agency a total of over 8,000 hours to more than 750 unduplicated clients, 85% of whom did not have Medi-Cal, and 80% of whom had monthly incomes of $2,500 or less. Clients received help with anxiety and depression, divorce and parental stress, issues affecting young children, domestic violence, abuse, and homelessness. More than 18% were children between 6 and 18 years of age.

About

I provide individual, couple, and family counseling. I offer support and direction for my clients, and specialize in addictions, coping with life transitions, relationship counseling, and stress management. I provide a supportive environment, and interact with clients in a way that facilitates movement beyond the barriers that have previously limited progress.

About

I have worked as a licensed therapist since 1984. I am passionate about being present with clients and helping them to transition through difficult situations. I love to help them be more present in their lives and more loving to themselves and others. I work with people who want to explore themselves and improve the quality of their lives. Sometimes, they don’t feel as alive in their lives as they deserve to. I work with them to understand their needs. It’s important for people to find what gives their life energy, joy, and passion – what makes life meaningful for each individual. We all need to claim our own meaning.

About

As a full-service college consultant, I specialize in the application process and the requirements for college campuses. I seek to streamline the process for students and their family by organizational help and time line creation, teacher recommendation letter organization, essay guidance, and application assistance to help facilitate a student’s analytical processes as he or she considers what is best for learning interests and campus environments. Formerly a high school classroom teacher, my style is casual, fun and low key. Students know that I am available to them at any time and regularly keep in touch with them via texting and even Facebook. Whether a student is seeking tutoring for an academic subject such as English or history, or needs assistance preparing for the ACT and SAT, I tailor my tutoring to meet the students' individual needs. The fact that my students continue to stay in touch and seek out services after they have gone to college attests to the fact that they know I care about helping them make the most of their education.

It's not about money for me. It's about the results. It's about what each person walks away with after there experience with MsFancy's Consulting! I don't want you to look like me. I want you to look like you. A more FanCy you😉

About

One of the reasons why it's so convenient to see me for counseling is the flexibility that Heidi F Yoder, mft Life Skills Stylist allows you. This is delivered in two ways: * Accessibility - did you find that you'll be out of town during your appointment? We can use Skype or use other forms of online therapy. Studies have shown online therapy to be just as, and sometimes more, effective than in-person therapy. Working with teens or those struggling with depression, getting outside and doing eco-therapy can be a good idea. Studies have shown that information taken in under the influence of endorphins (caused by both exercise and nature) is learned more deeply, like the difference between hearing something, writing something, and repeating something back. * Diversification - types of services offered. An individual may be seeing me for skill development work that initiates a fulfillment career change. Later, that same individual may bring his partner in for some work on communication theory to help resolve some of their core issues. During this work, some material about their child may come up, and it becomes obvious that later, a few laser-focus CBT sessions would greatly benefit the teen's patterns of thinking around managing expectations and organization, in a way that brings her/him positive outcomes.

About

Change is not easy! And yet sometimes, the pain of difficult feelings, a challenging situation or a rocky relationship can overwhelm everything else. At such times, you may feel compelled to try something new and to give up exhausted efforts at doing it alone. In counseling, you can find relief from anxious thoughts, painful relationships, and self-defeating behaviors. Therapy offers you the opportunity to heal from your past, better manage your present and develop more adaptive and fulfilling ways of being. In my practice, I see women, men, couples, families and groups of many ages and cultural backgrounds. No two situations are ever exactly alike. At the same time, there are some issues that I work with more than others, and these are listed here: * Trauma * Divorce * Anxiety * Lost Women (please see my website for more information) * Grief or Loss I am a certified practitioner of EMDR (eye movement desensitization reprocessing) and expressive arts therapy (EXA). EMDR is a mind-body technique that's used to process disturbing memories (i.e.: traumatic events) that contribute to unexplained fears and self-defeating beliefs and behaviors. EXA is a therapeutic modality that's dedicated to the use of creativity as a vehicle for change. For more information on these techniques and how they work, please feel free to visit my website. You are also welcome to contact me for a free 15-minute consultation.

About

I am collaborative, and I care deeply about my clients. I am creative, and I am first and foremost interested in offering relief. Well-being is something I believe should be available today, not ten years down the line. My clients have told me that while they appreciate my deep empathy, they also value my analytical ability to help them make connections and offer fresh perspectives. They have expressed relief at finding our sessions filled with humor and a light, gentle inquisitive approach. I offer individual, couples and family sessions. I also facilitate a chronic pain session to a well-being group. I excel at helping people through transitions and teaching couples how to nurture, heal, and/or add a sense of vitality and expansiveness to their relationships.

About

Basically I use a lot of self-disclosure in my discussions. I put myself in the person's shoes, since I am an AVID SKINNER disciple and subscriber to his philosophies! I also utilize the Maslow's Hierarchies of needs to demonstrate the fulfillment of life to higher degree. That being said, I then put the above techniques to use for the problems and crisis that this individual is encountering at this stage of his or her life. Making a more personal approach to define and hopefully resolve their challenged crisis.

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.
