I really like Linda. We ended up needing something different than a life coach: an in-person marital therapist because we ended up having a trial separation. But I would definitely recommend Linda for couples or individuals.

Yes! You Can!

(Sorry it took so long to do this, Laura! Still working on procrastination habits!) Laura is a top professional! I needed support with some issues that were really holding me back, very uncomfortable stuff. Laura was always available - even at hours no one thinks someone will be. If you've worked with a therapist, you'll know right away she's one of the best you can find. If you've never worked with one, you can let your instincts guide you - her honesty and undrestanding about life and how hard it is for all of us, has just been so real, supportive and produced concrete positive results for me. Thank you, Laura!

I spoke with several therapists on the phone before making an appointment with Margo at the Juniper Center. I am so glad that I went to see her. She has outstanding credentials and experience, but her abilities to connect, empathize, and promote self -awareness (so that you are empowered to navigate through your challenges) are absolutely amazing. Great therapist and extraordinary human being.

I have had nothing but negative results from so called therapists​/ professionals in the past. Thankfully Beth has opened the door for me in gaining comfort in seeking help with issues that I didn't want to even start unraveling on my own and certainly not with anyone else because I was certain that my problems were not going to be heard and acknowledged as a real problem. Beth has changed my life in a way that only myself and my family could fully understand. I will never hesitate to seek advice or question her ability to help any given situation on any level Thank you Beth.

My partner and I had never been to any kind of counseling or therapy, but wanted to have a positive pre-martial counseling experience. Giulia has been a real gem. We're so happy with her professional yet personal demeanor and how comfortable we feel in sessions with her.

    Idania was awesome! I hurt my back and needed someone quickly. She was incredibly responsive, made the appointment quickly, and was even early for the appointment. She was so good at finding and taking care of the problem areas, great great great massage. I felt better that night and the next day was almost 100%. We have found our regular massage therapist for sure!

    Debbie has been a driving force behind my growth and strength today. I have been a patient of Debbie's for years, and I couldn't begin to express my gratitude for her and her practice. Debbie is respectful, empathetic, and makes her patients feel comfortable in the most vulnerable times. Her approach and overall knowledge is constructive, and her support is genuine, warm, and encouraging. Throughout my years of therapy, Debbie has worked with me to address my traumas, my fears, my insecurities, and my dependencies, as well as given me insight and tools on how to manage such. I feel safe and I feel heard with Debbie, and I ultimately feel in control of myself and my life. I feel more capable with the perspective and skills she has given me, and I truly value our therapeutic relationship. With Debbie's guidance, insight, and unwavering support, I have become a healthier and stronger woman throughout the years, and I'm hopeful for my future. She is truly one of a kind!

    I struggled with anxiety for many years now and decided it was time to finally see a therapist. I was referred to Anita Groll by a friend of mine, and now, after the consistent sessions I have had with her, I cannot recommend her enough. Anita truly understood the problems that I was facing and experiencing and has worked with me to overcome the anxiety that I have had for multiple years now.

    Karolyn is wonderful! She has a warm and wonderful way about her--it's hard not to feel relaxed just being in her presence. Karolyn's energy healing treatments are second to none. She is my "go to" energy healer. I highly recommend her!

    I've been to other therapists (at other hospitals), and Dr. Holec with Resilience Psychological Services, by far, proved to be the most helpful of them all. She is compassionate, relatable, and easy to talk to. She has a flexible schedule. She is knowledgeable on various therapy methods. She provided me with the resources and support I needed during several challenges I experienced. It is obvious that Dr. Holec is passionate about the work she does. I would highly recommend Dr. Holec!

    Tom Goforth is an amazing person! He was my husband's therapist for over 30 years and he also was our couples' therapist. The trust in and gratitude we have for Tom led my husband, Jeff, and I to ask him if he would be the officiant at our wedding in August of 2000. He graciously obliged. Years later, in 2008, our son, Ethan, was born. We named him Ethan "Thomas" after Tom Goforth. Tom has done so much for Jeff and for us as a couple. We are indebted. Thank you, Tom! We love you!

    I will forever be indebted to Sarah for all the things she has done for me. I would recommend anyone that wants to turn their life around to work with Sarah and trust what she says because she has exceptional skills as a therapist. DBT/Mindfulness has change my life so much. If you are willing to put the work in you can do amazing things with your life. You do not have to stay in the same. What if cycles of life. I don't even take medication anymore and I use mindfulness and meditation too. It is never too late and I am using the skills Sarah taught me and they work. I have been using Mindfulness now for over 2 years and I am happy to say that it has changed my life. A couple years ago I was going to end my life but then I met Sarah and I am in such a better place. I would recommend Sarah to anyone. You are in control of your destiny, so make the most of it.

      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.
