I have been a client of Ted's for over 5 years. Words can not describe what a wonderful therapist Ted is. He truly cares for his clients. Ted is very professional and he is genuine. He will make you feel comfortable discussing any topic with him. From the moment of our first meeting, I knew that I could trust Ted to guide me through the challenges in my life as well my celebrations. Trusting Ted to guide me on my journey is one of the best decisions I have ever made. His guidance has changed my life! I encourage anyone who is seeking therapy, to sit down and talk with Ted so you to can experience what has changed my life. M.P

I have known Liza for several years. She had been our family, marriage, parenting, individual, therapist for a couple of those years. Her down to earth, practical, solid biblical approach to her active therapy style was truly a God send for us. We had been through a few other counselors over the course of 10 years. Liza was able to establish what our families needs were, and was able to teach us the tools we needed to build up our parenting skills and help us with a deeper understanding of our marriage structure in a year and a half. Liza touched on things that were never brought up before and really had us doing some internal work and walking some roads that were hard but very effective. The skills and knowledge that we gained from our experience with her are are really priceless and such a deep blessing. Granted, our family was willing to do the work, but she guided us with Gods word the whole way through. I would highly recommend her to you. Her gift of empathy truly spoke to our hearts and helped us through the hardest most traumatizing events in our lives. My family was able to heal and come out of this stronger and more solid then we had prayed for.

I have been a patient of Scott's for almost a year. I started seeing him thinking he would be just like all the other therapists I had seen and that he wouldn't make a difference. He proved me wrong in our first session. He is a very kind man that really listens to what you are saying and has an amazing way of seeing things. He always helps me see things in a different light and has been able to help me through every situation I have come to him with. He has not only helped me get through my own struggles but has also been the reason I have been able to help my daughter get through her struggles. He has taught me how to communicate with her and how to be the mom she needs me to be through her trying situation. He is reliable and absolutely amazing at what he does. I feel very blessed to have met him and so thankful for everything he has done for me. Scott definitely found the right career for himself and I would highly recommend him to anybody that is looking for a therapist!

For more than a decade Rae has been my massage therapist. (During that time, Rae took time off from massage while managing a physical therapy company, but I switched back to Rae as soon as she resumed massage.) I have gone to dozens of massage therapists over the years, but no one comes close to matching Rae's unique massage abilities. Most massage therapists have a set massage routine and are very reluctant to change their massage routine to accommodate their client's needs; whereas, Rae will vary her massage to address the needs of her clients. Rae's techniques are so effective that I consider her massages to be physical therapy. Also, Rae's charming personality and demeanor puts her clients at ease, yet she conducts herself very professionally. Rae's waiting area is pleasant with relaxing mood music and thoughtful lighting. Also, complimentary tea, bottled water, and hot chocolate are available in the waiting area. Needless to say, I highly recommend Rae for massage therapy!

    Scott is my massage therapist, and he helps me keep my aging body lithe, limber and relaxed. I have had sessions with him a couple of times a month for several years. He is spiritually grounded and physically strong and can gently go very deep into big muscle groups to release tension points. I always leave our sessions feeling rejuvenated in the best sense. Scott is the best.

She gave me helpful tips on how to handle and cope with certain volatile sitations. Her words to me were real and raw and I NEED this.

    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.

    I was lucky enough to be supervised by Megan for a year at Rosewood Ranch Center for Eating Disorders in Tempe, AZ where I worked as a Primary Therapist and she served as the Clinical Director. Megan brought a sense of calm to even the most stressful and difficult situations. Her feedback was always timely, grounded, constructive, clear, and highly accessible. Her ability to be so consistently outstanding is like nothing I have ever experienced in a clinical setting. She is simply stellar in the work that she does.

      I've know Sharon for more than four years. She has helped me in such tremendous ways through major adversity in my life. She has a way of bringing faith and knowledge to make you think about your issues and to really help you see how God is moving in your life. She truly cares about what you feel and what you are going through. Going through individual and marriage counseling with Sharon has truly blessed us as individuals and as a couple. She helped me understand and have more compassion for my husband at a time that I wasn't sure I could find it. Knowing that she prayed for us also made such a difference. Before I met Sharon, We saw at least three therapist that didn't touch on the way that Sharon really handled our situation. I have the utmost respect for Sharon, and I am more than grateful to her.

      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.
