For years I struggled with a serious phobia with balloons and social anxiety. After one session with Melove, my phobia has vanished and my social anxiety is at an all time minimum! Inner soundness has changed my life! Thank you! :)

Kyle was very welcoming and kind. She made me very comfortable and taught me to understand my depression and anxiety. She helped me understand myself better in order to be a better husband. I am very pleased I chose Kyle. Thanks so much for being flexible with my schedule. Out if the countless counselor so have tried in the past she is by far the greatest I have worked with. I'd chose welcoming wellness 10 times out of 10 times.

I have worked with Tina for over a year and her strategies for mindfulness and dealing with stress have greatly improved my ability to deal with stressful life events. As a result, I’ve been able to manage my anxiety and increase my enjoyment of life.

Rae does a wonderful job. The only improvement I would suggest is better time management. My last experience was that I received a text that Rae was running a bit behind and would be 15 mins late. When I arrived at the adjusted time, I still had to wait an additional 20 minutes and there was no mention of it when I finally got in for my massage.

I have known Beth professionally for 15 years. In that time, I have seen her (as have several of my family members) periodically for help, both personally and in my marriage. She has given me many useful and helpful tools and approaches to help me through particular situations, or to deal with difficult circumstances. I have complete confidence that Beth will keep what I say during our sessions confidential. I trust that she will listen to me without judgement or criticism. She helps me to navigate the challenges in my life, and use them to better myself instead of letting them drag me down. Through my time with Beth, I am able to identify my feelings and emotions, and learn strategies to properly express them. Life can be really hard, messy, and ugly. And we don't always have someone to help us deal with all of it, nor can we always think clearly or remember how to appropriately respond to opposition. I recommend Beth as that someone, whether a person is desperate to improve their life, or desiring to maintain and manage it so it doesn't get worse.

We placed Katie on our group schedule to run group hypnotherapy groups and to provide 1:1 sessions with out clientele. We have a 6 bed detox and rehabilitation center so at times things can become quite chaotic and hectic. Our experience with Katie has been absolutely tremendous. Her clinical interaction with our clientele has been nothing short of professional, concise and effective. She is a multi-edged sword as she has provided hypnotherapy for symptomology related to anxiety, cravings, irritability and sleep disturbances. She has even worked with our clientele to help with smoking cessation programs and creating a healthy balanced lifestyle that is imperative to long term sobriety. We value Katie's presence here at Vita Behavioral Health and would highly recommend her to anyone interested in achieving a high level of living.

Kelsey Shane has truly changed my life. She has allowed me to understand myself and given me the ability to trust and make confident decisions for myself. I feel that working with her has truly changed (and saved) my life in many ways. Would recommend her to anyone as a therapist during crisis but also someone to talk to on a regular basis for maintenance of mental health. She has helped me become and maintain being my best self. I also really appreciate having her therapy dog Tondo in the sessions with me, I find petting him helps me get out things that often give me too much anxiety to even talk about.

My husband and I just finished an intensive session with Dr. Johnson. We hit on the points that led us to seek therapy (lack of connectivity, work stress bleeding into marital relationship) as well as uncovering other areas that need to be addressed (PTSD, post-partum depression in my husband [yes ladies it exists!], and unresolved grief over losing parents). Dr. Johnson is not only a patient, receptive listener, she is very intuitive and eye-opening. We were nervous as it took a long time for us to actually get to a therapist's office; but once we made the commitment and were in the office with Dr. Johnson, our anxiety level was greatly reduced and a high comfort level was established quicker than we anticipated. We plan on continuing our counseling with Dr. Johnson as a couple, as well as individual sessions. I have confidence that through her education, hands-on experience, and communication skills with us as individuals and as a couple we will achieve our goals.

    Lauren is fabulous. I've been coaching with her for almost a year now. She has helped me so much - my level of anxiety, and my transition as a new mommy. My husband and I had a hard time, I fell victim to post partin depression, and her support made A HUGE difference in our relationship and in our home. I'd recommend her to anyone!

    Before I began working with David I felt like therapy was something I had repeatedly failed. My work with other professionals morphed into the same conversation that always ended with the same question: What did I do wrong? But in working with David I have -- for the first time -- discovered that my anxiety and anger are things I can process. David created a safe environment in which I've learned to allow myself to experience my emotions and, in turn, slowly begin to work through them. Unlike my previous experiences in therapy, David has provided me with practices and tools that I can use after our sessions end. As a result, I finally feel as though I am an active member in my therapy, instead of the cause of all my problems.

    This is the best therapy I have every received- I've been in and out of therapy over 15 years / since high school and this model of therapy has worked better than any other- and its implementation by Heather is outstanding. She creates a very open safe environment and the EMDR application allows you to really dig deep and start approaching your fears, anxiety and emotions. I have noticed big changes in my life already as we have been working together- processing experiences and new insights, new ways to approach and perceive. I am excited for all we will accomplish in the coming months. The other great thing about Heather is that she will tell you up front that this therapy isn't meant to last forever - there will be a point where you will be moving on/ can move on and won't need it. Definitely a change from the norm approach. Thanks Heather!

      My daughter and I have been counseling with Sharon for about two years. She has helped my daughter cope with anxiety over a narcissistic father. Sharon has encouraged my daughter to write a book about tips for kids/parents that go through a divorce. Sharon counsels in a way that makes you feel very comfortable to share. She speaks with truth, compassion, and sincerity. She's a great encourager and you feel empowered to handle any situation after a session!

      I've received treatments from Katherine over the past year, and she's helped me immensely with everything from stress management to vision issues (central serous retinopathy) to even ankle sprains. She is exceptionally knowledgeable and passionate about her practice, and when you see her, it's very clear that her #1 priority is your health and well-being.

      I had been having some personal issues with depression and anxiety due to an ongoing issue with my family, as well as health problems. Tiffany has helped me to confront these issues with myself first and also to set healthy boundaries with my family. Because of her, I am doing so much better. I am no longer feeling depressed and I have learned some coping skills that are helping with my anxiety. I am happy that I was able to do all this with the help of my wonderful counselor and without any medication. We have been meeting once or twice a week and I will continue to see her. She has truly helped me have a better quality of life and I highly recommend her services. Thank you so much Tiffany!

      My 17-year-old son has been doing neurofeedback with Allied Neurofeedback and the results have been outstanding. He is more calm, can focus more, has less anxiety, sleeps better. He is a musician and says he has more creativity and he can now finish songs he's writing. He hasn't finished a song in a year and since therapy, he's finished three!

      I signed up for the 8 week weight management program which is well thought out and designed to get to the root of what causes one's emotional eating. Bonnie is a good listener and gently guides you to self discovery and helps you work at overcoming those issues. It has done wonders for me to build my self-confidence and deal with old family issues that had bothered me for years. I have learned a lot, and it has changed my life immensely for the better. Bonnie provides some CDs that are personalized for your use and thought provoking exercises. These can be used as often as you to reinforce the message and I enjoy going back and reading over the exercises to see how things have changed for the better. She makes herself available to her to answer any questions or if you are having a bad day to discuss why. I highly recommend the program.

      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.
