In our premarital counseling kerry helped guide my wife and I towards a marriage with God at the center when things would get tough. During this process he help us understood the trails of marriage as well as the hope God had for a strong marriage. For both of us this was very important. We came from divorced families. Coming from a inconsistent upbringing the foundations of a lasting marriage was foreign to us. Even though we felt like everyone else, imagining a fairytale marriage that would last forever because we were so in love. I'm very greatful we had the chance to work with Kerry. As the marriage progressed, we faced hard times. We had to fight to grow into eachother, becoming one unit. Coming from divorce we learned to be independent and self sufficient. As we grew together we faced the trail of a miscarriage. This experience can tend to cause division and self destructive behaviors. We faced the temptations of these actions. We even fell and took part in them, for a time. As we remembered Kerry's council it push led us towards God and the way eachother should be to one another. Bringing us far away from those behaviors. Now we are 3 yrs strong, with an amazing baby boy, and a long journey still to face. We have ideas of what's to come, steps to stake to over come them, and a foundation in God that will handle whatever we are unable to. If tou want a strong lasting marriage use Kerry as your councilor, follow what he teaches, and stay true to the path he sets you on.

I truly felt that God led her to us. My wife felt comfortable with her from the beginning. I opened up to her myself, telling her our story. Evangelist Sinkfield listened attentively and shared a little herself. Before I knew it she was giving counsel and I was comfortable with her. She had prepared personal vows for us. We had a great experience with Evangelist Sinkfield and she would be highly recommend. Daniel & Tammy Crousby II

    For eight years I avoided going to counseling because of really bad experiences. However, with the encouragement of my friends to give it another shot I scheduled an appointment with Don Weir. As soon as I began my first session I felt safe and like I had someone who actually understood me. I was so excited about my counseling session with Don that I actually called up a few people in my family to tell them that I think I have found the right counselor for me. I've been going to Don for three years consistently and it has been the most life changing experience ever. I've had many highs and many lows, but through my sessions with him I truly feel like I have been able to understand myself a bit better which in turn has resulted in more positive interactions with my relationships, home life, marriage, and work.

      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.
