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!

Psychotherapy for my son. Beth is my son's psychotherapist and she keeps great boundaries in her role as such. He trusts, confides and looks for her guidance and she is responsive to my concerns without violating anyone's trust in the process. He is working through a lot of things and I am glad he has Beth to help him. I'd highly recommend Beth.

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 wanted to take a moment to express my appreciation to Bonnie and for her expertise in Hypnotherapy. I had a lot of things going on in my life recently that created so much stress that it affected everything from my sleeping, daily energy even my health. I decided to try something different. I contacted Bonnie to see if she could help. Bonnie helped me so much that I now am able to cope with much of the stress that life throws my way. My sleep has been the biggest improvement… I wanted to thank Bonnie for her help. I am in a much better place because of Bonnie.

Nancy is a very warm and inviting person, definitely an important trait when seeking therapy. Therapy can be very uncomfortable and she makes the process a lot easier. I highly recommend her for working with children as well. My daughter feels safe talking with Nancy and working through obstacles. There isn't one negative thing I could say. She is great, I am so grateful to be working with her.

Thank you Thumbtack!

About

I provide psychotherapy and counseling for depression, life issues, and substance abuse and substance dependence. I utilize CBT, ACT, and DBT.

About

I offer psychotherapy services to individuals and couples. My approach to the therapeutic relationship is one of curiosity and respect for the human condition. I believe the client is not a label, but a unique individual with needs, wants, emotions, interest, behaviors, and depth. Using a person-centered and experiential approach to the therapeutic process enables me to learn about the uniqueness of each individual, and gain insight into their world. I believe that insight into our selves can be achieved through our experiences. In the therapeutic process, I use a variety of mediums for exploration. Mindfulness is not just thinking, but it is about bringing awareness to everyday activities and thoughts. This can be achieved through the therapeutic conversation, art, role plays, and a mind-body connection. I believe becoming mindful of our minds, heart and body is key to becoming a more authentic self. Using a cognitive behavioral approach, I have helped individuals identify unhealthy behaviors and choices, in order to live a healthier, fuller life. Using EMDR, I have helped individuals increase their ideal performance level, overcome chronic pain, lessen the effects of anxiety, and assist in alleviating stress. I have experience working with anxiety, depression, bipolar, healthy sexuality, relationships, sexual abuse, family issues, LGBT issues, and life transitions. I have experience with court-ordered therapy for both juveniles and adults.

About

Congratulations! By simply looking for a therapist to help you address whatever problem you are currently facing, you have already taken the first step to making your life better. I help clients to identify the small, oftentimes overlooked steps they are currently making, and then help them identify what other steps are needed to find lasting change. Whether the problem is a life transition (i.e. family, employment, relationship) or something you have struggled with for years (i.e. depression, anxiety, addiction, history of abuse), I work with clients to envision a life in which these problems are resolved forever. In working in this way, clients not only resolve the current problems but discover the answers they have been longing for in order to understand themselves and move forward to a life of which they previously only dreamed. I work with people with a wide range of issues. Some people simply want a life coach in order to make better decisions. Others come following sudden, unexpected problems such as relationship, family or employment struggles. Yet others come to address long-standing issues such as past abuse, addiction, depression, etc. With over 20 years of experience, I have seen a lot. But, most importantly, I have seen people find solutions to the most challenging problems. Give me a call, and let’s see how I can help.

About

I provide Jungian psychotherapy for treatment for depression, anxiety, intimacy issues, early childhood trauma, and dream work.

Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

How does hypnosis work?

Hypnosis is a wellness technique that works by promoting positive behavioral or cognitive changes. During successful hypnosis, the client should be eased into a state of deep relaxation in which the conscious mind takes a back seat and the subconscious mind becomes more active. The client is often able to let go of critical thoughts and become receptive to the therapist’s suggestions. In this state of hypnosis, motivating suggestions can bypass your usual mental resistance and internal defense mechanisms. For example, even if you want to quit overeating cupcakes, you may have some level of resistance that your rational mind can’t overcome. During hypnosis, the positive suggestions made by the hypnotherapist can bypass your usual blocks, helping you to achieve the formerly unachievable: stopping overeating, quitting smoking, mastering public speaking, or losing your fear of heights. The goal of hypnosis is to strengthen and empower the client’s motivation, commitment and focus. Consider working with someone who is not just trained in hypnosis but also is a licensed therapist or psychotherapist who can bring their academic background into your session.

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.

What can hypnosis help you with?

According to many sources including the National Center for Biotechnology Information (NCBI) which is part of the United States National Library of Medicine and a branch of the National Institutes of Health (NIH), hypnosis is scientifically proven to help relieve both mental challenges and physical pains. Hypnosis can alleviate stress and reduce pain after surgeries, has been shown to relieve anxiety in children in the emergency room, and can be useful for managing pain associated with everything from arthritis to migraines. Hypnosis is non-invasive and gives you a way to control pain or discomfort that might otherwise seem out of your hands. Hypnosis shouldn’t be used as a substitute for medical care, but may be an excellent complementary tool that is best provided by a trained therapist or licensed medical provider. The University of Maryland Medical Center shares many conditions for which hypnosis can be useful:

  • Irritable bowel syndrome
  • Tension headaches
  • Alopecia areata
  • Asthma
  • Phobias
  • Insomnia
  • Addictions
  • Bedwetting
  • Fibromyalgia
  • Labor and delivery
  • Skin disorders, such as acne, psoriasis and eczema (atopic dermatitis)
  • Stress
  • Tinnitus (ringing in the ears)
  • Cancer-related pain
  • Weight loss
  • Eating disorders
  • Warts
  • Indigestion (dyspepsia)
  • Post-traumatic stress disorder
  • Smoking cessation

How is hypnosis used in therapy?

Hypnosis is a powerful tool to help clients overcome challenging issues such as anxiety, phobias, pain management, hot flashes and more. Hypnosis is also a way to help let go of addictions like smoking, overeating and gambling. In and of itself, hypnosis is not a therapy, but it can be used in conjunction with therapy to empower and encourage the person receiving it to make positive change. Some people are more susceptible to hypnosis and will benefit more from hypnotherapy than others.

According to Dr. Clifford N. Lazarus, speaking for Psychology Today, hypnosis is a “genuine psychological phenomenon that has valid uses in clinical practice … hypnosis is a state of highly focused attention or concentration, often associated with relaxation, and heightened suggestibility. While under hypnosis (i.e., in a hypnotic trance), it seems many people are much more open to helpful suggestions than they usually are.” The suggestions made in a therapeutic setting get deep into a person’s brain, beyond their conscious thinking, leading to behavior change and the ability to overcome challenges that might otherwise seem insurmountable.
