Wow! I can't say enough! I am so grateful for the communication technique that Greg Griffin taught my Boyfriend and I! His coaching and counseling "really" helped our relationship drastically. No exaggeration. "Drastically " helped our relationship. We were on the verge of giving up on each other. Having a counseling session with Greg Griffin was a last ditch effort to see if there was any hope for our failing relationship and horrible communication. Since we met with Mr. Griffin, we have earnestly employed the communication technique that he taught us and we now communicate effectively with each other in a loving, kind, considerate manner. Our communication is better than it has ever been. Our love for each other has grown and is stronger than it has ever been. We owe all of this to Greg Griffin teaching us how to interact and communicate and understand each other. Thank you so much Mr. Griffin. You made a profound difference in our relationship and we thank you for that. Lisa Marie & Craig

You taught us how to communicate effectively and you showed us the importance of random acts of kindness towards each other. Counseling with you saved our relationship and we have never been happier! We just can't thank you enough! Angie and Brooke

Prior to meeting with Corlette I wasn't a big believer in counseling, therapy...etc. However after meeting with Corlette my views concerning therapy have completely changed. I believe the understanding manor with which Coreltte handles her sessions has largely contributed to that change of opinion. Several months ago I sought out a counselor/therapist to help my partner and I through difficult times where our communication often broke down, any conflict could easily result in a fight, and we were forced to revisit hurtful events from our past. We were committed to the relationship but certainly needed help moving forward. From the very first conversation, Corlette was non-judgemental, insightful, and provided us with a platform to get beyond our past. She's excellent at listening and letting one air their grievances, yet knowing when to intervene and provide some helpful perspective. She never makes you feel rushed and truly wants you to benefit from each and every session and willingly provides her time to help you do so. She's been a pleasure to work with, great choice here!

My husband and I completed premarital counseling with Communion Fellowship Ministries International in preparation for the life long commitment to one another. From video calls, to emails, to face to face meetings the team at CFMI surpassed all of our expectations with their prompt responses, professional counseling and gracefilled knowledge of The Word. My husband and I had the opportunity that many other couples unfortunately miss out on; and that is being fully prepared and equipped for marriage prior to saying "I do," we both learned so much about the intentions of marriage, the value we individually bring and how vital it is for The Holy Spirit to be at the center of all we do. I would 100% recommend CFMI to anyone, as we have been back with them for their Ministers in Training course and hope to complete some biblical parenting classes in the future!

My Husband and I decided that we really needed marital counseling to work through some communication issues. We also wanted to get a better understanding of our expectations for one another so that our relationship would get stronger. I took it upon myself to start searching. Amongst a list of criterias that I wanted a counselor to meet, I wanted a God fearing person who could be guided by the spirit. I must say that my Husband and I are both so very blessed to have met Mr. John. He was extremely patient with us. He was not judgemental, but he was honest and he understood what was happening underneath the surface. He allowed us to say our peace, he took notes, he was in tune with what we said, he was very attentive and open minded. We opened with prayer and ended with prayer. When we left, we were both so happy and I felt a sense of calm. I would highly recommend Mr. John to anyone struggling to get through tough issues. I am looking forward to our next visit.

Dr. Samaan was able to connect me with God in a way for the Holy Spirit to show me what was causing my personal problems with my assistant pastor and had no idea of how to resolve it. The counseling was a spiritual experience rather than the advice of an expert. Initially, I met with him for two two hour sessions. The results of his counseling brought healing, peace, and direction for me. His counseling is definitely Spirit directed! Being I live in Michigan I did call him when I needed advice in dealing with my situation. I did stop in to have a review session with Dr. Samaan every winter for the next two years.

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

I sought help from Emma to address some unresolved personal issues that I had experienced throughout my life. As time progressed, the focus shifted from an individual counseling session to a marriage counseling session. My husband and I both found Emma to be authentically caring, insightful, and spiritually grounded. Emma taught us new techniques, which encouraged us to open our hearts and the lines of communication between us. We are eternally grateful to God for how he used Emma to help and heal our marriage.

    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.
