    Joseph is my spiritual director. Through our sessions I have developed a deeper ability to sense God's presence in my life, a deeper confidence in God's love for me, and an increased ability to recognize the path God calls me to. He has excellent pastoral counseling skills and brings knowledge from multiple sources within and outside Christian spirituality to assist me in my journey.

    Kirsch Counseling is where healing begins. Life is an incredible journey. At its best, it is experienced with joy, love, freedom, gratitude and passion. Everything you have been through and everywhere you have been have led you to this place. You are redefined every moment, not by the past, but by the decisions you make in the present. I'd be honored if you'd allow me to explore your story with you and uncover the inner happiness that will fuel you on your journey towards the life you desire. The easiest way to change your life is to change the way you think about it. Together, we'll work to identify behavioral patterns and internal conversations that may be holding you back. You will gain a better understanding of why you feel the way you do and you'll be empowered with the knowledge that change is possible. Change is frightening but staying the same can be horrifying.

    Have you ever noticed how life can be a lot like a car trip? You make a plan to go somewhere, and then you discover the car needs fixing, or the road is under construction, and you have to detour! Life, like cars, functions more smoothly and efficiently, when we pay some attention to how well the parts are working. And a timely tune-up is a smart investment to make sure things run more efficiently. Some cars show the effects of years of neglect. When the engine only fires on three cylinders, or the transmission can't shift gears, you look for a professional mechanic who can repair the neglect of the past. That's what counseling can do for people. By focusing on what isn't working and figuring out why, counseling helps to heal the problems and pain of the past that keeps intruding into the present. But oftentimes your focus is on the future. Say you're planning a road trip adventure and you want everything to be in top form to get you there. In that case, it's only smart to take your car for routine preventative maintenance: get a tune-up, change the oil, and check the tires. You'll also want to get an up-to-date map to help you decide which roads to take, and how to make the most of the attractions you'll pass along the way. This is what Custom Life Coaching is for. Life Coaching helps people who already have a pretty good idea of where they want to go, and want the best, most enjoyable trip getting there. Life Coaching also offers the advantage of being extremely convenient and flexible. Is it hard for you to find time for an office appointment? We can work by e-mail, if that's more convenient. Do you want to have coaching sessions by phone? We can do that, too. In fact, we can customize the coaching package that will best fit your needs, lifestyle, and budget! Here are our products and services: At A Better Day Counseling and Custom Life Coaching, you can find both types of service: counseling for difficulties arising from the past such as: * Trauma * Abuse * Depression * Anxiety * Low self-esteem issues Custom Life Coaching will help you reach your present and future goals in areas such as: * Marriage and relationships (gay and lesbian friendly) * Parenting teens and children in today's world * Becoming your authentic self * Creating a life that has heart and meaning for you * Managing stress * Finding balance in unbalanced times Talking with a trained professional can give you a fresh point of view, different from what you might get from friends or family. And you can benefit from the years of learning and experience gained from working with many different people. As a licensed clinical social worker, my approach to working with you focuses on your strengths and goals, and how your life, job, and environment support or sabotage them. My job is to help you understand your challenges, and to suggest new skills and strategies with which to resolve them. You get to choose, you are the one in control. We do coaching by appointment, phone, or e-mail.

    I have been providing counseling to individuals, couples, and families for over six years. During this time, I was certified in Cognitive Processing Therapy, which has proven effective with trauma survivors with PTSD. I have also developed a specialty in working with couples, and have helped many couples to reconcile their differences and find hope again in their marriage. Though I specialize in couples counseling, I am also effective with individuals and families, individualizing each person's therapy to address his or her unique needs and issues. I also specialize in Christian Counseling. As a former pastor, I am comfortable using the Bible to help people deal with life's problems. I recognize that there are denominational differences and beliefs, and I am comfortable with different viewpoints on non-essential biblical doctrines. I will never try to persuade you to believe differently when it comes to these issues. When it comes to essential doctrines, however, I am able to help people understand these issues in a non-judgmental teaching environment.

    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.
