We could not have asked for anyone better to guide us through the beginning of our lives as a married couple. Mitch was superb, both as a marriage officiant, counselor, and a friend. Though he's a man of faith, he had no problem performing a non-religious beach wedding in his martial arts attire (to our request). Mitch ensured our ceremony was performed exactly how we wanted it and gave us even more. He was available and guided us by communicating via Skype, phone, and text to ensure everything went our way. He was there on time and ready to go and thus put his best efforts to make our day beyond memorable! We highly recommend Mitch as he is someone who is really going to cater to your needs for that special day. Regardless of our faith or beliefs, Mitch will definitely meet and surpass your expectations, just as he did on ours. Thanks again Mitch, You are Awesome!!! Sincerely Alejandro & Michele

I began working with Michael after making the decision to seek out a career coach to help me with a professional transition. While I went into it seeking tactical and strategic planning, Michael saw that the personal and emotional element needed just as much tending. He walked beside me as both coach and counselor while we explored each of my reasons for wanting the change in my life. The result of this conscientious process was deciding on a course of action that is thoughtful, well laid out, and exactly right for me.

Dr. C is astounding at her job. I have been seeing her for almost two years now and could not think of seeing anyone else. She has helped me with everything from my anxiety to coping with the loss of loved ones. Sometimes we do a lot of exercise that help me expand my mind and other times we just sit and talk depending on what I need at that point. All I can say is that I wouldn't be where I am without her.

Faith is a counselor with expertise and compassion. She is a wonderful listener. She listens, assesses, advises, and creates a plan of action in order for you to heal and to be the best you can be. Faith always returns messages and follows up. She also provides opportunities such as teleconferences to promote healing and growth. I highly recommend Faith as a counselor.

    This experience truly changed my life. Stacey is a beautiful, creative, open minded person who I instantly felt very comfortable working with. I'm not going to lie, I was very hesitant about the whole thing in the beginning. Life coach? Talking to someone I don't know about my problems and my deepest fears... I don' t think so! But something inside me kept nagging at me, telling me to do it. At this time, I was going thru a very bad time in my life. I was in a terrible relationship with someone who I loved but had come to realize had serious psychological issues, I had NO confidence, no friends or family living near me and a job I hated. I really didn't know where to turn. So I did it. What did I have to lose? No one would know and I could finally really talk to someone about what was going on in my life. This was hands down, the best decision I have ever made and I don't even want to know where I would be if I hadn't done it. When we started, I questioned everything. How was this really going to change my life? I had very little faith and to be completely honest I even thought the whole "life coach" thing sounded a little corny. I hung in there though. I did what she asked me to do and, at first, slowly little things started changing for me. I had a chance to sit back look at myself, my loved ones and life in general in a completely different way from what I had been doing my whole life. I realized so much being able to talk to Stacey and working with her gave me the chance to look at my life through someone elses' eyes. Growing up, I've gone to counselors, therapists, psychiatrists, the list goes on and on. I've never had someone help me so much though. I think it's partially because Stacey really cares. I've had the opportunity to form a friendship with her thru this process and can honestly say she is an amazing person that cares so much about the well being of others and makes changing your life fun and exciting. I looked forward to meeting with her every week. She's so creative with the work she does with you and goes completely above and beyond what any other type of counselor or therapist does. She has changed her own life and helped changed so many others and she understands. She doesn't make you feel judged or less then. She does just the opposite. Something sent this women to me and I KNOW it was meant to be. If something has sent her to you, have faith in it or have faith in yourself. Stop questioning everything about it and believe in something. I never thought I would be sitting here writing this review, trying to figure out how to get across how much this really changed and how much I know it can change yours, if your are ready and willing. I now have my dream job, relationship and am on a spiritual journey I never knew possible and I will be forever grateful to Stacey and the work she has done with me. All you have to do is trust your intuition! Good luck on your journey and have faith in it ;)

    Howard Lane saved my life. He is a professional dealing with real people. He cares for his clients and leads with his heart and mind about addiction, depression, anxiety, and really anything you need to talk about. He is not only a wonderful clinician, he is a wonderful man and I would trust him with my feelings and struggles always.

    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.
