Ira is such a blessing! He really cares about his clients and goes out of his way by providing the best service. He works weekends, and you can call him anytime you need to talk. I have been to other therapists and none even come close to Ira.

My teenage daughter had been having trouble with anxiety and OCD tendencies. After having met with Cristi, both issues have diminished greatly. My daughter actually enjoys going to Cristi to help her with strategies to deal with her issues and sees Cristi not only as her therapist, but as a trusted friend. Cristi also values my input as to concerns about my daughter's well-being and helps me to better understand the struggles my daughter faces. I highly recommend Cristi for anyone who is seeking a caring, compassionate, knowledgeable, and experienced therapist for themselves or a loved one.

As a massage therapist myself I am very picky about who I have work on me. Time and time I come back to Matt because he is very professional and talented. As a female I always feel covered and secure when I am being worked on. He listens to my concerns and focuses on my problem areas. I always feel better and look forward to our sessions. He does such a good job I even scheduled my boyfriend to have a massage with him.

Vili is incredible! Great energy. A wealth of knowledge, and just fun to be around altogether. I was having hamstring issues, and picked Vili's brain about the possibilities of what was going on. He assessed what was going on and instantly was able to point me in the direction of the solution. Highly recommend anyone to go see him!

I personally did not meet with JD, but made an appointment for a family member. I don't have the words to express my feeling for how great JD is. He helped my family member in a way that has and will change his life for the better. He took the time to understand him and his problems, and guided him in such a humble and wise manner. And this was just in one sitting, It's truly amazing !!!! He is a good soul who isn't powered by money...he just wants to help. Other therapist that we have seen, are geared by money, time, prorated rates if you go over their time. But not in this case, GOD BLESS you always, and we will be grateful to you always.

Working with Alik was a really pleasant experience! I've been to psychotherapists in the past and never felt truly comfortable or I felt like maybe they weren't offering actionable items to take away after the session. But Alik really seemed to LISTEN and UNDERSTAND me, he gave me actionable tips to walk away with, I even wrote down some of his words of wisdom on a sheet of paper so I could repeat it word for word later for someone that I'm having a current conflict with. I wanted to get his words exactly right, that's how valuable they are! He also showed me some practical breathing and meditation techniques, which were super helpful and I hadn't tried before. I am going through a current huge change in my life right now, thinking about moving countries for love. Alik listened without judgment, complete patience, and a way of looking at the entire situation more holistically. He feels not only like a competent psychotherapist, but a true confidant and wise beyond his years and training. Thank you, Alik! I'll definitely be back.

Jaimi is one of the most balanced people I have ever met: she has advised me on a variety of issues including my marriage, my business and relationships with friends. Every time I have had a problem to discuss with Jaimi it has been met with a listening ear and an open-mind. She has helped me think differently and approach challenges in a new way; I can't recommend her more highly.

    Rob was Great to work with. He has a relaxed manner about him that made him really easy to talk to. I've now used his services a few times and when I saw him on Thumbtack while seeing what they have to offer, I knew I had to write a review. Now that I am no longer in LA,I've actually called and he was able to help me out still because he remembered me. It was like I'd just seen him last week. He is a Great coach and I would see him as a therapist too if the need arouse.

    Absolutely amazing! My boyfriend and I are in a long distance relationship and we only see each other once a month. I needed a therapist who could squeeze us in on the following day, a Saturday, when my boyfriend was in town. At first, when John informed me that he was completely booked on Saturday, I dejectedly said thank you and was going to hang up the phone. Then, I was very surprised and grateful that John was still willing to take the time to hear my concerns and provide feedback. He even offered to speak with my boyfriend so he could hear both sides of the story. My boyfriend, who was very reluctant to see a therapist, called me after his talk with John and was more willing to attend the session as well! Because my bf agreed to only attending one session, I did not want to risk seeing an ineffective therapist, so I begged John to see us an hour before his normal business hours and offered to pay extra for the inconvenience. John agreed to meet us super early in the morning at no extra cost! We arrived 15 minutes before our scheduled time and immediately began our session. John had my boyfriend and me facing each other and helped facilitate the dialogue between us. He provided pointers on what words to avoid, how to listen actively, show appreciation, and how to make each other feel understood and safe during conflict. The session was emotional (in a good way!) and in the end, we were both overwhelmed with hope and positive energy! John was very engaged and passionate about helping us. He even gave us a book called Getting the Love You Want that he thought would be helpful for us. Such a small gesture, but I was incredibly touched at the thoughtfulness and genuine care John showed from beginning to end. I cannot thank him enough! My boyfriend and I are excited for our next argument so we can practice what John taught us. We can't wait to see John again next month!

    Finding a therapist can often be a difficult task, but I would recommend Stacey to absolutely anyone. She is compassionate, calm and very skilled in what she does. Her desire to help is reflected in her approach to conversations. She conducts herself in a professional manner, but has an innate ability to connect to people. My advice is to call Stacey today and get started on the path to understanding and appreciating yourself.

    About

    GETTING THE MOST OUT OF THERAPY Whatever your problem, challenge, trauma or pain, the power to change exists within you. I believe an effective therapist’s job is to support your shift, not to create it for you. Being with clients session after session, I find the persons who have positive movement are the ones who show up every week — seeking collaborative solutions — and try them out between sessions. Whether you’re familiar with the therapy experience, or just hoping to find a place to provide some helpful solutions during a difficult time, I can help you make your desired “shifts”. Together, we can mutually create a safe space to discover new ways of looking at things and make progress toward your goals and desires.

    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.
