Shannon Avana is the most competent and efficient therapist I've ever had the pleasure to work with. She's passionate, compassionate, competent. She listens to you, not with jaded tiredness, but with an intense interest that brings out things from you that you didn't even know you kept, all the while keeping you on track with a methodic, systematic approach.

When Anna Cedar, my colleague of two years, told me that she was starting a private practice I got incredibly excited that others will get to experience the funny, thoughtful and warm person that she is. Yes, it goes without saying that she has years of experience as a therapist and that she has knowledge and a deep grasp of both "talk therapy" and evidence based interventions. I got incredibly excited because even more than her knowledge about interventions that help people when coping with stress, concerns about identity, depression, anxiety, relationship problems, trauma (or any combination of the above)--Anna has the intangible skills that help individuals feel really LISTENED to. I feel that therapy is often about goodness of fit--that is--feeling comfortable and safe with your clinician. Anna makes ME feel safe. She has a delft touch with people and she's not afraid to ask hard questions or sit with pain and sadness.

    Dr. Lopes has been my therapist on and off over the past 5 years. She had helped me overcome my depression and anxiety, and eventually helped me through a very difficult divorce. I can truly say that with Dr. Lopes's help I have been able to turn my life around. I feel blessed to have a friend refer me to her and I do not hesitate to recommend her to others who are struggling and need unconditional support and guidance... She really cares about her clients, no exceptions.

      Deb is a life saver. She has worked with my daughter and I around very difficult adoption and trauma issues. Not only has she created a safe environment for my daughter to disclose her history and anxieties but she has also provided me with exceptional resources, education and support. Her interventions have made a world of difference for us. I'm a therapist and have worked with numerous child therapist. Deb is by far the best!!

        Kavita is my therapist, and I am so lucky that I found her because my life is transforming in ways I never could have imagined. I found her through a series of unexpected events. Long story short, I ran into an old friend, joined him for dinner with another friend of his, and his friend recommended Kavita based on something I said in passing. I'm so glad. I hate to think about where I would be now if I hadn't found her. I've seen therapists before, but it wasn't the same. I think that's because Kavita does way more than "talk therapy," and I feel like that's magically changing my brain. She also made a referral to a great couples therapist for my partner and I. All in all, life is looking so much better than it ever has before. If you're looking for a really intelligent, compassionate, and creative therapist who will help you change your life, reach out to Kavita.

        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.
