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.

Allison is a gifted therapist; she has helped me work through my issues (both large and small) over the years and never ceases to amaze me with her talent. She is very respectful of where you’re at in the process and has an un-canny way of nudging you forward without making the experience too unpleasant. She listens to both your verbal and non-verbal communications and uses her intuitive abilities to understand your issue; however, she is able to translate the complex into understandable terms and switches back and forth very easily. This makes the therapy productive and allowed me to become an active participant of my experience, which I found to be very empowering and motivating. Allison definitely does not employ a ‘one size fits all’ type of therapy technique--she takes the approach that you both are on this journey together, and she gives her all each and every time.

    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 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.

      When I first received a massage from Elisa, I already had a promising feeling I would be a devoted client as she is a devoted therapist. Elisa has always been intuitive, responsive and continues to make every massage experience a life changing one. I get up from every session feeling cleansed, rejuvenated and lighter than I had come. In other words, the amount of release I wanted was matched, and then some. Elisa is not only my top choice therapist, but has also become a dear friend, and I recoomend everyone experience a session with her. It's a real treat! And surly the best thing you can do for your body mind and soul.

      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.

      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.

      Shelly was the best therapist I have had to-date. She was extremely easy to talk to, and I felt like she brought something new for me to think about each time I brought something up to her. She made therapy a place I looked forward to going, and I really valued the time I had her as my therapist. I would highly recommend Shelly to anyone who is looking for a compassionate therapy experience and who wants to feel like they are really getting some good work done when they are there.

      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.

      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.

      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 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.
