I'm currently 17 years old, and I have struggled for about half my life with depression, anxiety, suicidal thoughts, and family issues. It wasn't until about a year ago, I started on a positive path, thanks to my therapist Riana Milne. My conditions suddenly worsened about a year ago and I knew it was finally time for me to see someone. After appropriate research to find a good therapist, I went with Riana. From the moment I met her she made me feel extremely comfortable and made me feel as though I wasn't in this alone. On my first visit, I was able to share my story with her, something I had never done with anyone. Simply because it was extremely hard to talk about and I didn't want people to think I was crazy. With the aid of Riana and another doctor she referred me to, I have been on a slow but successful road to recovery. Riana gave me ways to reduce my stress in addition to advice to deal with friends and family. Not only has she helped with my mental conditions but with everyday life. It has also been a hectic year trying to apply for college and scholarships while maintaining my grades and obtaining a job. She gave me tips and was able to lead me every step of the way. She also continues to impress me with all she has accomplished in her life while battling struggles of her own. I would recommend Riana Milne to anyone seeking any type of assistance to get through whatever your difficulty might be.

Lindsay is a fantastic therapist! She is a great listener but also provokes self-awareness by asking all the right questions. This has encouraged me to examine my habits and behaviors and truly get a sense of my repeated thoughts/reactions. She is easy to open up to and has a natural ability to make you feel comfortable and safe. I look forward to our visits and can honestly say I’ve learned a lot about myself and how to cope better since becoming her patient.

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.

    Big reason. A drunk in NYC was passing me when I had my children, he was acting like a fire and brimstone preacher and being very violent in his gestures. I pulled my kids aside as he approached and he saw me and moved threatening toward me and I stood up and looked him in the EYE and he said "Your Cursed" , your children aren't but you are and then he moved on. It was a very hypnotic suggestion and I could not shake it. A few weeks later my wife who was 6 months pregnant was diagnosed with Stage 3 cancer, and they told me the baby and her might not live. And then our house was found to have Mold all over and they needed to break the foundations open to redo the plumbing and we had to move out for what ended up being a year to a little crappy apartment. I was unable to earn anthing because my wife's Chemo and the redo of the house kept me home watching the other 3 kids we had. Then the insurance company said they were not going to pay for the claim and if we wanted money we would have to litigate even though they admitted owing us money they said the attorney thought we were going to be bankrupted by the illness and it would be better to negotiate from a position a strength with us...I am not making this stuff up I ran out of funds. NOW. Everything is good, the baby is now 2 and healthy my wife just had her 2 year clear of cancer. I am happy, I am full of life and counting my blessing but professional I feel like a drain my family and I just keep thinking about that hypnotic suggestion as too why I am having problems with figuring out how to restart my professional life. I Seek a hypnotist to help work out that suggestion that I think I subconciously am looking at as a curse. Please help.
