Kristy Quaka excels in her work and always goes the extra mile to provide the best quality therapy she can. She is patient and loves to try a variety of holistic methods, so there's never a sense of repetition or tediousness. I can tell she really cares about her patients and is passionate about her occupation, all while maintaining a level of professionalism. I'd like to reiterate the part where she is patient, because it took me a few sessions to really open up. I repress and suppress a whole lot, but with Kristy's help, I was able to find the ability to express those withdrawn emotions, and get in tune with myself. She was never impatient and likes to give you the time you need. Although some sessions can be difficult and uncomfortable, Kristy has always managed to leave me feeling with a sense of relief, rather than uneasiness. If you want an ideal, empathetic, understanding, and blunt therapist, I definitely recommend her. It is with her help that I'm able to confront past traumas with courage, instead of fear.

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.

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.

Pastor Lenoir provided exactly what my partner and myself desired and needed which was an emotionally safe environment which promoted communication, counseling and an forward moving action agenda. Despite Pastor Lenoir being a spiritual leader, the session was grounded in self and couple empowerment and improvement and not "church recruitment". He implemented a productive format which allowed for resolution and remedy. Pastor Lenoir exercised excellent time management and my partner and myself exited the session both hopeful and empowered. We will return for a follow up session to continue the groundwork laid today. Having the session book ended in a Christian based orientation was exactly what we needed.

    Okay, let's be frank. It's weird to review your therapist. But as someone wise once told me, there are two kinds of people in this world, the kind that are in therapy and the kind that need it. First off, Bridgett is wonderful. She's laid back and she lets you talk about whatever you need to talk about without feeling judged. Second, My husband suggested we get counseling and choose to try Thumbtack. One of his few GOOD decisions he has made lately. Third, and to reiterate she is unbiased and we have results. Our communication is better, I am learning how not to argue. I'll just be honest my husband keeps in touch with his exes :/ We went to the Bahamas together a few years and created a special bond over Tortuga rum cake and I found a hidden cake that an ex-girlfriend gave him this past Christmas from Dillard's tucked away in the back of my cupboards. Let's say had I not started working with Bridgett, there would be total chaos in my life right now. She is awesome, wish I could give 10 stars.

    About

    I entered the field of counseling to assist people in improving their lives and reaching their potential. Happiness can occur when we learn to change aspects of our lives we have control over and not ruminate over those aspects of life over which we have no control. I can assist you in identifying these aspects and engage in the process of change.

    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.
