    Rev. Darrell is a brilliant and gifted Counselor and Minister. He emanates profound acceptance, compassion and love. Working with Rev. Darrell is like receiving a mental, emotional and physical hug - each wounded part of me gets seen, loved, appreciated and revived. Rev. Darrell nourishes famished parts of my being leaving me feeling deeply seen, heard, honored, loved. He so tenderly helps me transform old beliefs painful and limiting beliefs about myself and life into powerful and palpable experiences of my wholeness/ and holiness, of hope and possibility which are the launching paid to creating and experiencing my life from those places. Rev. Darrell helps me heal on such a deep level of my being, that is BEYOND priceless. I highly recommend working with him and give yourself the gift of being seen, loved and honored right where you are so that you can then step into the places and experiences you want to be.

    Brian R. King specializes in being a relationship teacher. However, from my personal experience of having the opportunity to be coached by him, his skills, abilities, and talents absolutely exceed way past the surface of just relationships. For more than 22 years now I've sought help, guidance, and advice. I have hired and or worked with many counselors, therapists, psychologists, psychotherapists, coaches, and teachers throughout various periods in my life. (I am currently 34 years young). Even though I am not that mature when it comes to the years I've lived, I have been through a lot of difficult and traumatic events that would have broken most people. So, I know a thing or two when it comes to the arena of teaching/coaching/being counseled etc. Earlier this year I had wanted to hire a life coach and actively started looking at options of who to utilize, and not because things were going bad in my life or because I needed help dealing with a traumatic event like I generally did in the past, but because I finally figured out my purpose in life and wanted to excel the process of being the best version of my self that I could be. Before deciding to choose Brian I spent a good chunk of time researching countless individuals who not only claim to help transform your life & get you to where you want to be, but who wouldn't break my piggy bank in the process. Out of all the options I had looked at and considered, I finally decided to go with Brian. What was cool is that I had already known him for quite some time & even interviewed him for my video series called, "Inspiring People Doing Amazing Things In Life." Why Brian out of everyone else? You may be asking... I chose him for many obvious reasons, but what really stood out to me in comparison to all the rest was his diversity and the "realness" of his own life experiences that he has had, gone through, and not only resiliently bounced back from, but has applied all that he's learned and turned it around into helping/guiding/teaching others as they go through their own personal Journey. Also, Brian has the traditional "credible" educational experience, but I personally think outside of the classroom and in this game of life is where the real qualifications come from. It's been a little over 8 weeks now from when I started the journey of having him teach/coach/counsel/mentor me and began his process of unique teachings and concepts. Now, I am genuinely writing this, not because anyone asked me to but because I really want to share with you all my perspective about what he does, based on my own personal experience. I find Brian to be one of the most uniquely brilliant people I have ever encountered and I feel that everyone should know this. This man has amazed the heck out of me...he goes above and beyond to help in every way he can...has such a compassionate, sincere, caring, and genuine approach to everything he assists me on...and has been able to help me in so many ways that he probably isn't even aware of. Brian has helped me to have more effective communication in all areas of my life. He has introduced new concepts to me so that I know the best way to have proper and healthy self-expression. He has heightened my already advanced sense of self-awareness in ways I never imagined or thought possible. I have learned from him how to better handle and respond to experiences in my life both favorable and unfavorable...how to prioritize my time, priorities, and schedule in a unique way that works best for me...how to shift my perspective and perceptions to see others' points of views in a way where I can be more relatable with them...and he has influenced my life in so many ways that I am in awe every day, literally! Other people in my life that personally know me have noticed the transformational shifts that have been taking place and continue to take place within myself, my attitude, and my actions since I've been working with Brian. I really feel that my decision to hire Brian has been one of the best decisions I've made in a really long time and I am forever changed for the better in many ways. I can't even imagine how much more growth that is going to take place or the person I will have become a year from now as I continue to learn from him, follow his guidance, and take action on applying his suggestions. I am so grateful and thankful for this strategic and effective human being...he is truly one of a kind! I would encourage anyone who wants to better themselves in any area of their life to work with Brian and magically discover, just like I have, what ways yourself and your life transcends. I know that if after reading all of this, which is just my personal feedback and perspective, and now knowing all that I've described above...you are most likely going to be compelled to at least give yourself (if you want) the opportunity to grow and blossom into the beautiful person that you are meant to be...Brian has helped many, many people do just that. After all, life is a process and a journey to experience where there is never a destination...until it's your time to physically leave this realm. Make the most out of it while you can! I am grateful that I do! ☺️😉🙏 ~💖~Tiffany Tee~🌟~Always #Love 💖~ "Wake-Up To To Your Human #Potential & Realize The #Infinite Conscious Being That You Are!

      About

      My services can be found at Calm Minds Studio in Libertyville, where I work with the planners, worriers, achievers, and multi-taskers who are so busy taking care of other people (and things) that they need help taking care of themselves. Sound like you? Do you: Commute to work or sit at a desk all day and have low back pain, neck and shoulder tension or stand up all day and have tired feet? Have trouble sleeping through the night or trouble falling asleep? Want to feel more focused and present in your day? Want to stop the worrying thoughts and keep you up at night and distract you from your day? Want to feel more relaxed, flexible and balanced? Want to feel happier, more content and fulfilled? I offer a different type of experience. Walking into Calm Minds Studio for coaching, counseling, yoga therapy or a yoga class, you'll find that right away you can come as you are. There are no plush chairs or stigmas. I offer an open, non-intimidating and relaxing environment for you to get what you need, 100% customized for you. Some examples: - A client wants a private yoga class where regardless of the type of day she's day, we can guide her in a relaxing or energizing session that meets her exact needs. Some days it's a lot of floor stretches and other days it's breathing deeply into more strength building poses. - A client wants yoga therapy but really realizes she just wants a non-conventional counseling experience. Her therapist wears yoga clothes. The client sits on a yoga mat in a softly lit room. The client talks and the therapist offers guidance from a unique perspective of helping the client to be more present, accepting and in control. - A client just wants alone time as a busy mom of 3. She uses her time to talk, sometimes exercise, sometimes do yoga, sometimes just lie down and relax. We take both BCBS insurance and offer a sliding scale for self-paying clients. We are completely customizable and promise an experience like you've never had before. Take the stigma out of taking care of yourself. Be proud to come to Calm Minds, where you know you'll get the tools to be a better version of yourself, for yourself and those you love and interact with. Get relaxed. Feel present. Limit the worrying. Find balance.

      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.

      Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
