My experience with Kristy was definitely once in a life time opportunity.. I came to her broken, lost, triggered, and hopeless. I could no longer manage my life or my mental health any longer. (It’s so hard to find a good therapist, I’ve seen many!) At the time I went to see her I was very closed minded to the idea until I got to see for myself how much she truly cared to help change my life. She was the first therapist I had who actually put in the dedication to help me as a person.. Not only was she a great therapist, but an amazing life coach. She truly cared and that means a lot! Through the months I saw her we did deep digging into my trauma so I could be released from everything I struggled with internally.. generalized anxiety, ptsd, depression etc. She helped me gain my life back and gave me the proper tools to be able to function on a daily basis. Forever am I grateful to her.

I was very skeptical about seeing a therapist for couples counseling. The first visit I went by myself and found out that I've been wrong the whole time. The 2nd visit I took my girlfriend. Nothing short of amazing. Thank you Greg.

I am the parent of a young woman who receives counseling from Dr. Susie for an eating disorder. Dr. Mendelsohn, without a doubt, saved her life through her expert counseling, her compassion and humor. Dr. Susie was also very focused on working with the family throughout the entire process. She went far beyond my expectations in giving of herself and time to help my daughter in her recovery. I cannot recommend her highly enough for anyone facing the challenges of an eating disorder.

I have known Paul for the last 27 years; first meeting him as a therapist when my ex-husband and I left our church after a Congregational dispute with the husband/wife pastors. Through the years he counselled our daughter after she was sexually abused at 10 by our neighbor. He was our marriage counselor and unfortunately through no fault of Paul's my ex and I were divorced on our 32 wedding anniversary. I finally went back to the church we left after the dispute because they had called Paul as their pastor. Paul is a very caring man, in the position of pastor or therapist. Paul is a very special man in my eyes and in my heart. He saved me my sanity.

My wife and I are thrilled with Ruth. She has given our marriage a huge lift. We had been movingb in a very negative direction for the past few years and tried marriage counseling before but without any success. Ruth has a very unique way of helping us open up our communication and it has been great.

Maxie is accomplished, supportive, wonderful, and frankly, the best counselor I have ever been to. Her advice is both beneficial and constructive, and for each issue I've had, she lays out a practical and strategic approach to problem solving. Her cheerful disposition coupled with a professional yet warm demeanor put me at ease and make me feel as if I'm confiding in an old friend. I feel comfortable talking to her about anything and she has helped me tremendously! I so look forward to our sessions and am so grateful I found her! HIGHLY recommended!!!

Over the nine years of knowing Jed, every single referral we sent, and we ourselves, have found his ability to hone right in on our specific needs is extrarodinary! He possesses a flair for understanding the human condition as a whole, par none! Wise before his time, he also has a way of calming ones' countenance in his presence, as he has either learned, or perhaps this is innate, the fine art of detaching ones' emotions, in order to better care for others' needs first and foremost. We have seen him, a man of many pure hearted talents, as the hypnotherapist, the reiki master, the neuromodulation technique practitioner, the mental health counselor, as he often has given us the privilege of observing his wonderous healing skills on behalf of our beloved friends turned referrals! To Jed we say, long may you live...as there are so many out there who have had the great privilege of being surrounded by your extraordinary healing love. With many more to show up, no doubt...

    My husband and I have always needed help communicating. We just opened a business which is very stressful and were fighting all the time. Dr. Sussman is as described in his profile which is exactly what we needed! He is comfortable, experienced, professional, keeps on point, genuinely concerned about solving your issues, always on time and you never feel rushed to get out of your session. After only 3 sessions we are communicating 100% better and a lot less fighting. We are both completely satisfied with Dr. Barry Sussman.

    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.
