Louise L.
Verified review

Myself and some of my ( immediate and extended) family have worked with several Juniper center therapists over the past 18 years. We have participated in individual and couples therapy, and some adjunctive limited group sessions. We have received wonderful, very professional, genuine and heartfelt care in all instances. I have been in the health care profession for 30 years in various capacities, including working as a health care advocate, and I know what good care looks like. My family continues to trust the care the Juniper team provides, and they are my first choice when I know someone seeking for a referral for psychotherapy.

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.

It's been five days since my therapy session and so far so good. I went into the experience feeling skeptical and not entirely sure if I was actually hypnotized or not but have had ABSOLUTELY no desire to smoke. The time she took to explain the process and background was invaluable and my understanding was elevated.

Verified review

I received counseling and therapy for childhood trauma that I experienced 20 years ago. She helped me process through everything and make better sense of what happened. I learned new coping skills and have since had a huge reduction in my PTSD and depression symptoms. I always felt comfortable talking to Robin, and never felt judged. I've never been able to open up to anyone before, but she created the right environment for me to do so.

I am not someone who enjoys therapy; I typically feel I am there out of desperation. But Dr. Holec keeps me coming back every week. She maintains the exact balance of compassionate and tough that I need, and she demonstrates her skill, expertise and intelligence in every session. I highly recommend her practice.

About

Hello! My name is Herbert, and my passion in life is to provide not just a massage but a way to help those who are suffering from chronic pain due to trauma or bad posture, which most often causes pain with the activities of daily life. As a therapist, I know that massage therapy is not the cure for all things, but as a therapist, I only want to bring into light an alternative when all else seem to fail. How? By self-educating our clients about their own body, posture and gait by providing positive results through positive reinforcement that only comes from a human touch. I know that with my positive attitude and my focus and attention to detail, acquired while in the military, and zeal for helping others make me the type of therapist who will surely assist you resolve any issue that you may have; this is my pledge.

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.
