I found Ben on the Psychology Today Website. I had been struggling with depression and dealing with chronic pain and addiction to pain medicine. I really liked him from the beginning but, when I had a relapse and overdose he came to see me me in the hospital. He cried with me and my family. Since then I went to him personally and my wife and I saw him for marriage counseling for almost a year. He gave us tools to help us solve our own issues and we still use those tools to this day. My wife and I have referred many people that have seen him. Everyone that did had a positive experience. I would refer anyone to him. If he doesn’t feel like he can help you he will find someone who can. I’ve been to many therapists in my life and none of them came close to Ben Holland.

Ellen is amazing. I can not say enough great things about rossiter. After going to many doctors (5) chiropractors (4) physical therapists (4) massage therapists I can't even count over (10) accuputure 20+ times and a nerosurgeon I found rossiter. For over a year after 2 MRI's and all the people I saw. I was in pain. A 10+ everyday. I couldn't walk without assistance. I needed a service. dog. I was miserable. When I first saw Ellen I told her my story of severe back pain. She worked on me as my dog watched. When she was finished my dog came to my side to do her job. With one hand on Bella (dog) and the other on the couch I braced my self to get up. I was in complete shock when I needed no assistance. For the first time in over a year I got up on my own. My back pain was gone. It lasted for some time. Now I still have a little pain but my 10+ is more like a 5-6 for me that is awesome. I no longer take pain meds and, most days I'm good. I still see Ellen 3-6 times a month due to my issues but, like I said I can now walk without assistance. Thank you Ellen for all you do. You are amazing. Laura Hart

music makes connections

    About

    I use music to meet non-musical goals. I am board certified from Utah State University. I have experience working with dementia patients, hospice, special needs individuals (especially autism), and adults with mental disorders. I love doing it and am just looking to make some more connections with people. I am especially looking at working with special needs children, and also helping children connect with parents with dementia. I look forward to hearing from you.

    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.
