Tom did a wonderful job with our ceremony. We wanted a neutral, non-denomination ceremony, and he did a great job. He was very easy going and understanding throughout all of our interactions. We also did a couple premarital "counseling" sessions which were helpful to focus us amidst the craziness of wedding planning. Our only areas of improvement would be punctuality and record keeping/general organization. His relaxed, free-spirit is great in most circumstances; just make sure you are on task with what needs to be done. Overall, we would recommend him! Our ceremony turned out exactly how we wanted it.

I have gone to Cheryl many times for readings, reiki and meditation, and I keep going back! I have also sent four other people to her, and she never disappoints! I recommend her to everyone I know, because I know they will be just as happy with her services!

We've seen Aaron for two marriage counseling appointments so far and all I can say is how impressed I am. HE got to work right away getting to know us, our history, and giving us ideas of how to make things better. He wasn't the cheapest quote we got on thumbtack but in this case you really get what you pay for. He really knows his stuff! And we've already seen progress. He is unbiased, professional, and always timely. The office is super nice and even has free water bottles every time you visit. He advertises online counseling but I really like the office so we just meet in person each time.

I think Katie is very gifted. I had candida for three years and was having a terrible time with it. The doctor I had did not know how to treat my condition to get me over the candida. I asked her to pray for total healing of the candida. She said a beautiful prayer and I noticed a difference shortly after. I followed her advice and tried a different doctor and now I can eat sugar again. Between the prayer and following the new doctor's orders, I am healed. I have a strong belief in God and feel Katie does have a connection just from my experience.

After deciding that we needed some counseling to work through some conflict and extra baggage that's hanging around in our marriage.My husband and I met with Andrew for the first time yesterday after finding him on Thumbtack. Just after the first session we both felt it was going to be a good match.Andrew is very easy going and easy to talk to .He also seems to listen very well and pick up on exactly what areas need attention in relationship conflict . We are looking forward to continuing service with him .

I contacted Gloria because her profile looked like she'd have a more personal approach than the other therapist I saw. I was right. We clicked right away and I knew she "got" where I was coming from. I thought I was headed for couples counseling but with Gloria's help I'm able to see my role in my relationship and so far I'm getting along so much better with my partner. I never realized how much my family affected me growing up or why I had a hard time in relationships. Thanks to Gloria I'm so much better. She always says it was me who did the work but I never would have gotten here without her.

Daniel has been a huge help during a very difficult time in my life. I have been dealing with three big losses all at once, and there were a lot of days that I would have rather just stayed in bed. With Daniel's help, I'm finding myself laughing and smiling again. Daniel has also guided me to make decisions that will benefit my future by simply asking all the right questions. I couldn't ask for a more professional, caring, punctual, and flexible therapist. I feel incredibly lucky and thankful to have found someone like Daniel.

I've been working with Dave for 18 months now and he quickly played an integral role in addressing challenges ranging from career to relationships to a recent death in the family. Dave's ability to initiate self-discovery through open, natural conversation is truly unique based on my past counseling experiences. What's more, his methodology of self-empowerment employs positivity and empathy rather than guilt or lecturing. No issue is too small to discuss or too large to tackle. I leave every session feeling better prepared to take on the obstacles, both internal and external, that previously kept me from leading the life I desired.

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.
