This was my first ever Christian counseling and I was going through a very tough moral crisis. Greg truly helped me pull through one of the toughest periods of my life. He was patient, offered suggestions and guidance but he helped me see my own solutions. I credit those sessions with Greg as a turning point in my life.

I sent my 24 year old son to Daniel for counseling. Daniel made him comfortable enough to have meaningful conversations about his future and what his role would be as a husband and father someday. He focused on not only the issues of today, but what the impact of his words, actions and feelings would have on other relationships in his life in the future. I was very pleased with Daniel and his ability to help facilitate growth in my son.

Counseling is not something that I would ever imagine to be one of my resources to help my relationship get to where it is right now. When we decided that we wanted to do that I thought it was a bad decision to do so and sort of looked at it in a negative way. We didn't know where to start and who to really trust like that to talk about our marital issues. A friend then told me about grace connection, I was still a little reluctant to start therapy but decided to go anyway. I can tell you going to counseling has changed my whole perspective on how to deal with issues in my marriage, friendship and life itself. I wanna thank pastor Gracia for being such an an amazing counselor. Based on our association with him now , we would rank him as one of the best marriage counselors ever. It is with great pleasure that we would recommend the exceptional pastor Garcia. It is rare to meet a marriage counselor with as much compassion and self-awareness as pastor Garcia. His resilience, positivity, and humor are especially astounding given the challenges he encounters on a daily basis in the therapy sessions with diefferent couples. Thank you again for everything. I know that with everything you've taught us and by the grace of God our marriage will last for as long as God intended it to last. Thank you and God bless.

My fiancée and I have met with Corlette for the past few months and have been very pleased with our progress. Our goals were to improve communication and work through some hurtful past situations in our relationship so we could truly move forward. She has given us skills to more openly discuss our concerns and true feelings with each other. She is very fair in session in providing both of us feedback on ways to improve individually in what we bring to the relationship without taking sides. We always feel more connected and hopeful about our future when we leave session even if difficult topics were discussed. She is supportive and encouraging yet has a way to confront you to promote self-awareness and growth as an individual and couple. My fiancee was opposed to seeking any kind of counseling for a long time and he is now the one who suggests that we make appointments and frequently comments on how it helps. I think that's a testament to Corlette's ability to make one feel safe and supported in session. Highly recommend her!

Apostle Oshay Smith has been a great marriage counselor to myself and husband. At the time Me and my husband were having some hard times in our marriage, I was ready for a divorce, but the Lord led me to talk to Apostle Oshay first before doing anything else.. I briefed him on what we were going through, trust issues, infidelity, disappointments, and so on. He set up an appointment with my husband and he begin to minister and Council him first. My husband began seeing Apostle Oshay every Wednesday by himself from March 2017 until July 2017. Apostle Oshay then started counseling the both of us together in July of this year.. During that time of my husband one on one time with Apostle, I began to see a spiritual and a natural change in him. My love begin to come back for my husband for the first time in about eight months.. We still have a long road ahead of us but I can truly say now me and my husband are (1) standing strong together and we are both fighting for our marriage together.. and we owe it all to God first and also Apostle Oshay..

I have known Denesha Chambers professionally for almost a year now. She has provided counseling services for my nonprofit organization, and she has been phenomenal! We assist single parents in college and their children with emotional support and stress management while they are in our program. Our single parents have reported her services to be very influential to their current stress level maintenance, and they have seen progress in the communication between them and their children. We are very pleased with Mrs. Chamber's level of professionalism and plan to use her services as long as we can. She is dependable, full of integrity, consistent, and always open to new innovative ways to improve her services. I would recommend her to any one interested in counseling.

In the counseling sessions with Tonya Jordan I was able to identify my strengths and weaknesses and she offered me useful skills to reinforce my strengths. Attending my therapy sessions with Tonya Jordan was the absolute best decision I've made in my life! She helped me see things in terms of success and accomplishment and she was always very encouraging. Tonya Jordan has done more in a short time to help me than other professionals have in years. Just being able to talk about my feelings helped me so much and having homework to accomplish between sessions was also helpful in keeping me focused. Tonya Jordan showed tremendous concern and passion, was very professional, extremely knowledgeable, and has literally saved my life. Thanks! My sessions with Tonya Jordan have allowed me to take control of my life again. I recommend Tonya Jordan to anyone, any day, for counseling. Antoinette Steele

    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.
