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.

My husband and I were fortunate to receive Pre-Marital Counseling from John Pierre. At the time we were engaged and knew that we wanted to come into our marriage armed with as much knowledge as possible to have a successful and life-long bible-based marriage. During the counseling sessions we learned so much about ourselves as individuals. We also realized very early on that we were entering into the most important decision of our lives and this decision would determine the direction and course of our lives from the moment we say I do. Mr. Pierre is a no holds bar, tell it like it is, honest man. He made us look at each other from how we were raised, our thoughts, actions and decisions leading up to that point and their possible effect on the impending marriage. As the counseling sessions progressed, we began to understand marriage for what it truly is while simultaneously assessing our realistic expectations based on our values and goals in life. The knowledge we gained through our counseling is priceless. Seven years later we still use the tools we learned in our pre-marital counseling. The one tool we repeat and even teach back to others from Mr. Pierre is "Explore." If you want to know what that means and how it will make your marriage one to be reckoned with, you need to book family counselor John Pierre, we give him five stars (x2) and two thumbs (x2). You are in for a treat!

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!!!

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.
