My partner and I were in crisis mode and needed help. I contacted a list of therapists. Laura was the only one who actually called me. From my 15 minute phone consultation with her I could tell she was it. She related to me in such a natural, real life way and responded with the appropriate level of urgency. She is a gifted therapist who has done incredible work with myself and my partner. I could not have found a more perfect fit.

Michelle's work is amazing. She works with the individual needs of the person she is with. I asked for an intuitive massage therapist and that is what I got. I will be going back to Michelle many times.

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.

Allison is not a clinical therapist. She is human therapist. She sees me where I am at and for who I am. I am not a “case” or disorder. She gently works with me to explore the places in my character development that have brought pain and suffering in my life. The tools and resources that she offers are not protocol; they resonate with me. But more than anything, Allison is someone I have come to trust, admire, and deeply respect. While struggling with some harsh anger and compulsion in my life, I was able to talk through these painful emotional places with her without withholding or denying my true self. We were able to identify the root of the struggle, and move through the next steps of finding additional support. She had developed such a cohesive understanding of me that she was able to make recommendations for me to offer my primary care doctor for supportive medication. I have always been against prescription medication for moods and emotion, but her call was exactly what I needed to get me through a challenging time.

I started meeting with Beth over a year ago, and she is by far the best therapist I have ever worked with. Her range, depth, and versatility are absolutely amazing, and her insights are spot on. Her approach gets right at the heart of the issues and then moves to develop plans to cope and effectively deal with whatever the struggle or challenge. Although I moved away during the time I was working with her, I will definitely not move to another therapist. And so we meet electronically one way or another, and in person when we can. She has also become a valuable advisor to me on various professional issues in the businesses that I own. Beth is a tremendous source of support to me in every aspect of my life and I would give her the absolute highest recommendation.

I have been meeting with Ilsa for about two and a half years. She has been a huge part of my personal growth. I have seen a few therapists in my life, and she is by far been the most help to me. She has taken a lot of time and care in getting to know me, and has always gone an extra mile for me mental health. I don't think I would be where I'm at today without her help. I have already recommended her to friends, and will continue to wholeheartedly do so.

    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.

      I have been working with Shelly for the last four months. Her outlook and input, and the way she help navigate through sessions has revolutionized the way I navigate within myself. I have been in therapy before a few times before and it has never really worked for me because I wasn't very willing or open. An amazing benefit with working with Shelly is that she will put forth as much effort as I do. There is a equal-ness in discovering on my own and with the guidance of Shelly.

      Shelly is honestly the best therapist I have ever had. When I came to her, I was losing hope in therapy in general, but I was in dire need of help - and I'm so glad I gave it a shot! Shelly has a warm nature that is hard not to feel comfortable around. She's positive and supportive while being honest, open, and completely accepting of any and all types of things you need to discuss with a professional. I know that when I go to her, I will feel like I'm talking to a friend with no bias and all knowledge, with my best intentions in mind. Personally, I believe I owe a lot of my stability and my bettering relationships to the work I've done with Shelly. She's very professional, is always courteous and transparent regarding any professional matters. One impression I get from Shelly is that she stays very current in her field and is always expanding her knowledge. I know that when I go to Shelly, I will be listened to, acknowledged, and given help from someone with an open mind. Shelly has done wonders for me and I can only imagine the things she is yet to do for others. I believe that Shelly probably does a good job relating to all types of people - I know she made me feel like I could truly be myself in our sessions which is why I believe I was able to make so much progress. I often leave Shelly's session feeling a whole lot "lighter". I would recommend (and have recommended) Shelly to anyone going through something rough or needing to make some personal improvements.

      I chose to work with Nichole because I am a little restricted in movement and have arthritis in my knees. I needed to find someone who would take my current level of mobility in question and create a plan that would help me gradually gain flexibility and strength. Nicole has delivered all that I asked for and more. She listens carefully to what I need, and works with me in a very effective way. I've been working with her once a week for two months and can say that I'm certainly stronger and much more flexible. I am also less stressed out, a nice side benefit of working with a yogi who is also a gifted therapist! I would recommend Nichole to anyone.

      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.

      Danielle is an insightful, down-to-earth, personable, and compassionate therapist. She was always flexible and open to continuously adjust the style of our sessions as my needs evolved. I appreciated her ability to consider emotions through a somatic lens, which helped me identify physical signals for emotions that I could not fully access mentally.

      George MacIlwinen is the Horse Whisperer of young adults struggling to find their footing in their transition to adulthood. Our son had a history of difficult medical problems in childhood that prevented him from achieving developmental milestones and left him as an anxious young adult, depressed, over-medicated and isolated. Over the years we ran through many therapists and programs and our son had grown skeptical of their effectiveness. All that changed when we met George MacIlwinen. George's contributions to our son's life and our family's life are so extensive, it would take pages to catalog them. First and foremost, George understood our son like no one had before, he understood the trauma that our son had experienced and the gaps in his development. Most important, he saw our son's potential and his prospects for a good future. Therapeutically, George is a creative and independent thinker. He has an over-arching philosophy, but within that he is adaptive. For our son he followed a holistic approach incorporating experiential therapy and psychotherapy together with a strong emphasis on healthy life habits including reduced medications, physical fitness and diet. He has also been especially proactive in helping our son develop social skills. Personally, George is calm, empathetic and friendly. He's genuine with an easy smile. He is an excellent listener; he's insightful. George models the healthy behavioral habits that he advocates. He's a natural mentor and educator and has provided invaluable counseling and guidance to our son and to us. George MacIlwinen is an amazing therapist. Meeting him has been one of the single best things that has ever happened to our family. It's a great pleasure to recommend him to you.

        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.
