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!

I have worked alongside and in coordination with Brianna for many years. She is an excellent therapist and knowledgeable in many areas including eating disorders, depression, anxiety, and trauma. She does a great job with children, adolescents, and adults. She is an excellent choice if you are looking for counseling for your child or family. I would fully recommend her to anyone in need of help.

Rev. Kesha is a healer. She performed Sujok on me and it was amazing. She gently guided me through the process all the while being most conscious of what was happening with me. The end result was a great release for me and I look forward to working with her again and again. She has an amazing gift and I highly recommend her services.

Shontel is the most compassionate and humble counselor that I have known. I have been to other counselors in my life, but I never made as much progress as I have with her. Shontel was more than a counselor she was truly a gift from God. She showed me that God will fight all of my battles and give me peace and understanding. She has helped me so much that I can even begin to explain all of the wonderful changes that I have accomplished during our time together. With God on our side she has helped me get my faith, prayer life and self-worth restored. She is always there for me no matter what. There is no doubt in my mind that God speaks to her and through her. If you are feeling stuck in life or in a place where you don’t know what to do next…Give her a call, she will get you through.

Ms. Dames strikes me as a very caring AND very competent health professional. She made me feel understood. I never felt judged or scorned. In other words, I felt safe with her. She takes therapy seriously and because she does, she convinced me that she could help ME work through my issues. She came to me highly recommended and now I understand why. If you are considering a therapist, I would recommend Ms. Dames to anyone I know.

Through Robyn Ladinsky's coaching, I have been able to break through many of my emotional and psychological blocks and, as a result, have seen healing in many areas of my life. Robyn always helps me direct my thoughts and feelings toward what I want versus "what is." Robyn is an awesome coach and has helped me see how I've attracted exactly 'what' I've attracted into my life. With that knowing, I've been able to release negative emotions and, therefore, found true happiness (which is an ongoing process). I also must add that I've accomplished more with Robyn's coaching in a fraction of the time (months) than I had with many years of traditional therapy.

    I was suffering from migraines before I went to Dr. Schulman. He was able to not only get rid of my migraines, but prevent them from ever happening again. I have suggested all of my family and friends to go see him. Best decision of my life!

    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.
