Ms. Akram was very professional and flexible in helping me early in my career as a mental health/substance abuse counselor. She demonstrated excellent communication skills and was receptive in listening to me and providing oversight/direction in helping me to be a better clinician.

    I have been practicing Relaxation Yoga with Laura Mazuccca for approximately 3 1/2 years at Life Works Fitness Center in Middleburg Heights, Ohio. This particular class is so unique and mind and body fulfilling. Laura moves us through mostly reclined yoga stretches which reach deeper into my muscles. The stretches all have an extra spin on them that truly enhances the quality of my practice. Each of Laura's classes are different meeting many muscles groups that carry tension in them that I was unaware of being possible. Her voice and demeanor is extremely calming. I always leave this class with such a sense of relief, stillness, and gratitude. I only wish this class could be longer in length and offered more than once a week I have also participated in Laura's Barre class at Life Works Fitness Center. Laura pushes you to perform to your utmost best so that you leave this class knowing you have truly achieved an awesome workout! > > I have also taken enhancement classes with her at The Movement Factory in Lakewood, Ohio. I've taken a basic yoga class where she was able to reach out to each participant and help them correct and enhance their yoga poses! Here again Laura displays the knowledge and calmness in her yoga practice. I also took an introductory class to Butti. She is kick starting this unique yoga/tribal dancing in Lakewood. Her love of this new program is astounding she shines with pride with this class that is an amazing cardio workout! Lastly, I took a nutrition class with her at The Movement Factory. This class was offered to encourage a healthier eating style and weight loss focus! I walked away with a deeper understanding of food choices and some wonderful recipes and info on on sources to find good health advice. I am daily incorporating her healthy smoothies into my life and feel like I am reaching a better life style for myself! I have the upmost faith in her knowledge of yoga, overall fitness, and also of living foods! She reaches out to empower us with what we need to reach peace, health and happiness in our lives. I truly appreciate all she has done for me! > > With Gratitude, > > Joni Engel

    So far Joanna is a God send! She simply 'get's it' and is compassionate yet pulls out the necessary information. Along with goals and homework. I would consider her superior in her field for marriage counseling! I wouldn't hesitate to recommend her!

    Lisa is an awesome counselor! She is attentive, warm, nonjudgmental, and very knowledgeable and offers easily applicable information that promotes life changes. She combines smart, professional instruction and advice that instills in you the confidence to grow and move from thought to action! She’s also great for the occasional ‘mental tune-up’ when life throws you the curve ball!

    I have been with Naomi a couple of years now working on my many issues. she is always forthright, honest, and goes above and beyond to help her clients. She explains things I don't understand, and helps keep me grounded which is no small task. I heartily recommend Naomi if you are considering mental health counseling.


    Like many of my clients I have experienced life changing events. Finding positive, creative and most importantly individually sensitive treatment solutions will help people become their true selves. Neuroscience advances say that there is a direct connection between thoughts and good health, mentally and physically. My father was a psychiatrist and I worked in his practice before entering the media profession for twenty years. I am in mid-life and ready to return the lessons I've learned. I'm off the road and in an office and love helping others. My return to traditional counseling was through becoming credentialed to do media psychology and coaching for stage fright, image consulting, songwriting and copywriting. These skills remain a part of my practice and are valuable to help anyone become their authentic best.


    I am a mental health clinician. I am a female therapist/clinician who can come to your home, meet you outside your home and/or speak with you via internet.


    We may have feelings or thoughts that there is something "profoundly wrong with me." Low self-esteem is related with the feelings of not being good enough. It's as if we keep trying over and over to feel good about ourselves, instead we feel bad. That is why therapy is essential for your mental health and I'm glad that you are here. You're just one phone call away from getting help.

    Hello. I am a licensed mental health counselor in private practice in Seminole, Florida. I work with adults, adolescents and children in individual and family therapy. Please give me a call to start your journey to a greater sense of well-being. I look forward to hearing from you. Mary


    I differ from the average counselor in that I am a Christian counselor. I believe that I must look at a person holistically which means that you consist of body, mind and spirit. All of these components affect a person's well-being and therefore must be considered.

    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.
