I met with Marian for several years as I was undergoing several major life transitions including the death of a parent and beginning graduate school. My time with Marian was extremely helpful. She helped me to develop practical strategies to deal with the stress and anxiety I was feeling. She also helped me greatly improve my self-confidence. I have definitely taken with me the lessons she taught me and used them to deal with situations that occurred after seeing her. The strategies and coping mechanisms she taught me have been useful to deal with whatever life has brought me. Marian offered a kind but realistic perspective that I needed to help understand and cope better with what was happening in my life. Marian was always very professional and clearly passionate about helping her clients succeed.

The fall of 2014 was a turning point in my life. I was experiencing a crisis in that I was turning another year older and needed to find some perspective and direction in my life. My inability to truly understand my purpose created a state of panic and anxiety and I didn't know what to do. During this time I was referred to Center of First Thought. At first I was a little apprehensive about seeing a therapist but I was immediately put at ease. My therapist, Rose Shelton and I talked about my life path. I was able to put a lot of things into perspective. I thought of her as like a coach. Thanks to Ms. Shelton I have learned to see things more clearly and a lot of my anxiety about the future has disappeared. I am still growing and learning my path but I don't know if I could have come this far if it had not been for Ms. Shelton and Center of First Thought.

Momma a la Carte added to the joy of being a mother and bringing life into the world. Through the moments of worry, frustration, and confusion, Momma a la Carte knew what I needed. I have worked with Mommy a la Carte through the whole baby registry process, bringing our first daughter home, as well as her first birthday extravaganza. They have been (and still are) available when called upon with various parental questions and indecisions. The guidance given was sound and needed! I truly have appreciated being able to seek assistance without any worry. The services of Mommy a la Carte made tasks seem less complicated. What would I ever do without help being only a Mommy a la Carte away?!

I've been speaking with Jessica for about three months, and I can't say enough good things about how much she's helped me change my life (and that's an understatement). She's easy to talk to, empathetic and I never feel judged, rushed. She has also given me a lot of practical tools to manage my stress, anxiety, and depression. It feels as if we are family. I am so grateful to have her!


We are an outpatient psychology clinic serving children, adolescents, adults and families with anxiety and its disorders. We employ cognitive-behavioral therapies, including exposure-based therapies for the treatment of anxiety and its disorders (e.g., obsessive-compulsive disorder, panic disorder, generalized anxiety disorder, social anxiety disorder, separation anxiety disorder, school refusal behavior, major depression, and Trichotillomania).


I am a seasoned and skilled professional and am told that I can get to the heart of the problem very quickly. I consider myself to be compassionate and intuitive and use my skills to work with the whole person and not just one or two aspects of a situation.

A good friend of mine suffers from anxiety, so i connected her with Tim. I thought she might be intimidated to go see him, since she struggles with fear. Tim put her at ease right away, and gave her hope. That's something that has been missing from her life for a long time. Thanks, Tim for making such a big difference in other people's lives.

I met with Don once and it has made a world of difference in my life. I came to him with a anxiety problem that caused me to pick at my skin. After working with him for the appointment I already felt a sense of progress. I've been working on what he taught be since that day and I have nothing but the best things to say about him. If you need help quitting smoking or any other bad habits or just want to get a healthier view on life, see Don.

I have had the pleasure of having Rebecca as my therapist for the past 3 years. She has a very patient temperament which makes it very easy for me to discuss my deepest issues. She has a keen understanding of psychology, from general anxiety to sexual issues. Rebecca genuinely cares about her profession and her clients. I feel I have an ally. I would highly recommend Rebecca as a therapist.

Working with Caitlin for several sessions over the years, I find she is able to validate the areas of my life (my marriage, time management, pregnancy anxiety, child rearing, interpersonal relationships, work/home balance)I wished to improve in my life, offering practical guidance and encouragement that I believed I could excel. I've had mostly one-on-one sessions and I have attended workshops on time management and another on strengthening my marriage. Caitlin is very professional--I found her organized, attentive and thorough. She made herself available when I had to reschedule sessions and she would follow up with me on her own time if she knew I was going through a challenging experience. She is one of the most top-quality people I have ever met. I enjoy her personality--she's to the point yet incorporates much humor. I worked with her mainly when she lived in New Jersey but have reached out to her on occasion now that she is in Maryland because I consider her refreshingly insightful and positive. I would highly recommend working with her.

Sherrie has a soft and professional approach, but more importantly, she’s an excellent communicator. Sherrie understands what you’re trying to say even though it might not come in the most appropriate manner. The communication within our marriage has improved significantly since we started couples counseling. She establishes an open and friendly environment for communicating and sharing feelings.

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.
