    Liz is fantastic. It was great to have her come to our home. My daughter is a bit strong willed and Liz was able to get her to focus in a firm yet kind way. My daughter loved her. The activities to practice the sounds were games or reading and it was fun! We have seen a dramatic improvement and my daughter no longer needs any speech therapy. Liz also gave homework so we could support the process outside of the sessions. She has a great way with children!

    I first visited one of Trivia's group classes and was totally blown away. I chose to analyze a recurring dream from my childhood (it was one of those nightmares that stuck with me), and I had a huge insight from that time in my life. Tz has a very unique way of interpreting dreams, and for me, that's faster than therapy !

      Torin has literally saved me from myself. She gave me advice before my marriage. Now, while I will be the first to admit, I did now take the advice; looking back it would have been the best thing for me. She has helped me through the beginning of a divorce. I always find myself saying to others "Torin says"...or "Torin told me that I". She is so warm and welcoming. The most important part for me is that she is a professional, but also makes you feel like family, and doesn't sugar coat anything! So glad to have met her, can not say enough great things!

      I was recommended to Stephanie O'Sullivan for an irrational fear of dogs I have....had. Stephanie worked with me over a few long months to introduce me to some dogs that at previous times, would have scared me to the point of tears. But her patience and reassurance helped put me at ease. Now when I walk I don't break down if there is a dog around me. I even met her Rottweiler and with assistance, was able to touch and even play with him.

      Therapy by Amanda has provided an excellent service to my family and I since we started treatment. I've found Amanda Pasciucco to conduct her therapy sessions with nothing but the utmost professionalism, compassion, and competency. I'd highly recommend Amanda to anyone in need of theraputic services, her affordability, reliability, empathy, and passion for her work truly seperate her from other therapists.

      My husband and I started seeing Kerry Lusgnan at Northampton Center for Couples Therapy six months ago in serious crisis. We were on the verge of splitting up due to ongoing conflict that we were unable to work through by ourselves or with another therapist. We barely recognize ourselves as a couple anymore. We rarely argue and if we do it is resolved immediately. Not only have we learned and integrated new skills, we now have a level of love and respect that we were not sure was possible before we started. Not only are we more loving and happy in our marriage, we have the best sex ever and we feel much happier in all areas in of our lives.

      I've worked with Tai for over a year now, and she's a great listener and a very helpful compassionate person. She has used IFS with me, which is a very powerful and helpful form of therapy, and has really worked to make me feel better. I plan to continue to talk to Tai. I know she is very good with trauma and anxiety and relationship issues. I highly recommend her.

      I am offering bodywork, specializing in clients who are disabled, elderly, or toward the end of life. I don't require disrobing because most of my techniques can be performed through the clothes. If needed, I can expose only the area I am working on to apply a healing ointment. Wearing loose clothing like a sweatsuit is highly recommended during your session.

      About

      Therapeutic massage has been used in many cultures around the world throughout the ages to relieve both stress and physical pain. Stress can inspire us to do our best, but when we overload our nervous system for too long, our ability to respond with grace and balance may be compromised. Treating yourself to a massage can be one of the most pleasurable ways to deal with the overload of modern life. “All of our surgery patients are offered the treatment…I call it “service with a smile…and it’s mandatory weekly prescription I give myself” says Mehmet C. OZ, M.D. director of the Cardiovascular Institute a New York Presbyterian Hospital Columbia Medical center and a member of the board at LLuminari, a health education company. All sessions begin with a conversation so that you and your therapist can tailor your massage to suit your needs. Rejuvenate with a relaxation session or work on specific areas of your body such as neck and shoulders or low back. Either way you will feel renewed, relaxed and peaceful. Move2wellness is proud to say that all our therapist are licensed and clinically trained.

      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.
