Victor Ford is a brilliant psychotherapist. I can say this with “authority,” as it took me a long time, and many therapists, to find one who could help me with my depression, alcoholism and abusive childhood baggage. Vic is so easy to talk to/with. He has a gentle, yet focused and erudite way of helping me look at the man (me) behind the curtain. He has stuck with me patiently and compassionately through some very difficult situations. He’s helped me learn and grow from these challenges, instead of getting buried beneath them. Dr. Ford’s knowledge and experience is amazing. He draws from a deep pool which includes psychotherapy, theology, spirituality and physiology. In short: mind, body, spirit and soul. That was critical for MY healing and recovery. A psychotherapist with a brilliant mind and a loving heart: that is how I would describe Vic Ford. And I know, as I journey forward, he will ALWAYS be my trusted friend, philosophical mentor and learned doctor.

    So, I have been working with Suresh for about a year and a half now. He is amazing. Suresh is extremely professional, open minded, and SOOOOO kind hearted. I have never experienced such an understanding therapist. I use to see therapist on and off ALL the time. None of the therapist were working and they all just wanted me to change in ways that I was not comfortable with. They would take notes and complain. It was horrific. With Suresh, he is 100% focused. No notes. No keeping documents of me (I lovveee it!!) and he truly cares. I am not just a process to him. This man has done wonders for me. I went from having panic attacks multiple times in a day to not having any in months. He is intelligent and knows how to help! Great man! Keep up the hard work

      When I made the decision to seek help again. I honestly didn't believe there was any for me. In that moment of desperation, all I knew was I needed to get somewhere safe. My addiction had me believing I wanted to die. Any addict reading this will understand that feeling. I had pretty much given up trying to find an open bed in a detox center. That's when Steven from Sunspire called and within a couple days I was admitted into Sunspire's 3rd party detox facility in Tampa. When I entered treatment at Sunspire Health Hyde Park on October , 2017 it was to save my life. However, being my third treatment center. I just expected more of the same. Do this, don't do that, chant the serenity prayer, do a 12 step program, and be on your way. What I got was more than this addict could have ever dreamt for; a new perspective on life. After a brief adjustment period of me wanting to control and run every aspect of Sunspire and my treatment program. Yes, me the addict who weeks before was on the edge of death knew what was best for me. Thank God for the amazing operational and clinical staff who maneuvered me through and convinced me to stay on the numerous occasions I wanted to leave because it was too much. I opened up and allowed myself to receive the treatment/services Sunspire offered. The individualized one on one therapy was eye opening and has honestly changed my life. After thirty years of using drugs to cope. I've finally come to realize that my issue isn't with drugs and alcohol; the issue is ME. My therapist individualized a treatment plan to my specific needs and with my input. This allowed me to dig deep into those things that plagued me from childhood into adulthood. The cognitive behavioral therapy, dialectical behavioral therapy, psychodrama, relapse prevention, codependence, spirituality, relationships and family dynamics groups provided the knowledge, skills and tools I need to piece my life back together. Along with that they put great emphasis on NA/AA sponsorship and building a network of people outside of treatment. The outside meetings were a reintroduction to life and people clean. Reaching out and asking for help was something I just didn't do before Sunspire. I have a lot of work still to do. I am open and accepting to do that work. I have never felt so confident and as prepared to "live life on life's terms" as I do today after spending 90 days at Sunspire Health Hyde Park. For the first time in my life, I am looking forward to the future and a life in long term recovery. I finally got it and it's so simple, I never have to use again!

      I saw Dr. Benedict after being ordered by another doctors office to have an "evaluation" for drug use/abuse, & he was to determine if I was indeed in need of "counseling". I explained what occurred that brought me to him. He was understanding, compassionate, kind & most of all- caring. He went beyond the call of duty to back me up AND made arrangements so that life will be a whole lot easier in the future for me when dealing with other doctor & the like. Being a patient with chronic & permanent disability is very hard to live with in Florida, especially when prejudice is rampant. Dr. Benedict has really made a huge difference in the way I am treated & I couldn't be more grateful for what he did. So many in medicine have lost the understanding & common sense, let alone compassion, that Dr. Benedict still has even after 35 years in practice. Patients suffer needlessly because their doctors don't step up to help them like they should-when profits over people run how they practice, & more doctors than not, in my experience, have lost the most important part of being a doctor-to help HEAL. I recommend Dr. Benedict to anyone needing an excellent therapist.

      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.

      About

      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.

      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.
