Dr. Crosby was a huge help during a very difficult time in my life. 3000 miles away from my family and friends, I found her while looking for help with my depression and anxiety. She was able to help me identify stressors that I was unaware of and help me in dealing and coping with them, as well as build up my confidence. I'd recommend her to any of my family and friends!

Davita did an excellent job helping me cure public speaking anxiety in preparation for giving a TEDx talk. She surpassed expectations and provided new techniques that I've never heard of anywhere else. The session provided tools that I'll be using for many years to come.

From day one meeting with William, he has helped me focus on and remove barriers in my life.

William provides me with easy to understand explanations behind why I do certain things, using his vast amounts of research and knowledge along with giving me templates, tools & processes I can use to improve all areas. Simply put, William helps me in living a positive and more fulfilling life. You will be amazed at what even just an hour a week talking with William can help you accomplish! Jenny K. Tampa, FL

I have worked with Suresh for a long time now! He has inspired me to overcome my anxiety and depression. This man has a heart of a tiger and he is so easy to talk to. I use to always want to see female therapist only. I took a leap of faith and went and seen Suresh. Best call I have ever made. I could never go to a new therapist. I never feel like I am being judged, or pushed. If anything, he makes me feel so accepted and like he actually understands what I have been through.

    Charisse cured my nervous tics. She taught me how to control my depression and elevated anxiety. She gave me the ability to control my thoughts as well as the strong emotions that accompanied them. Her therapy stabilized my thoughts, and let me lead a life I could only dream of. 4 psychiatrists with their medications only made me worse. I would vigorously recommend Dr. Diaz to anyone who is having any mental or emotional difficulties.

    I went to Beautiful Mind to have a session that could possibly help me better focus while studying for a big exam that was coming up. Up to this point I was really having trouble focusing on my studies and my test date was coming up quickly. I feel the mission was more than accomplished as I was not only able to focus better while studying but all my test anxiety was also eliminated. I passed my exam on the first try. I highly recommend Susan at Beautiful Mind as she has a very warm and sensitive way. I had one other session prior to this one as well. This hypnosis was all new to me. I didn't know much about it but had heard wonderful things about Susan Iocono and thought I'd give her a try. If there's anything in your life you'd like to improve,change or work out then this may be a great solution.

    Thus far, all I have had was an initial intake last week with my first appointment tomorrow. Dr. Nelson gave me a homework assignment which really made me not only think but open my eyes. I have emailed her several times and her responses have been unprescented. She is always right there with encouragement, is insightful and has already been a tremendous help. I have been in therapy in the past, but I always quit when things get tough or my life becomes manageable to where I feel I don't have to face uncomfortable things. Dr. Nelson, I believe is building a foundation for me that will allow me the ease and comfort to do all the work I need to do to move forward with a healthier life. I am so grateful I found her on this site.

    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.
