Cheryl is hands-down THE BEST counselor in the world, based on my family's experiences. My young daughter was suicidal, hearing voices, traumatized and struggling emotionally. Cheryl gained her trust and friendship quickly, and worked with her through various techniques. She saved my daughter and helped her become the emotionally stable, thriving preteen she is now. I also was a satisfied client of Cheryl's (individual and couples therapy). All three, very different situations, were the most comfortable, productive sessions. We will never forget Cheryl and still call on her once in a while despite moving hours away. Cheryl has every characteristic you'd look for in an amazing counselor. She doesn't impose her values or beliefs on the client, however she knows the value of adding the spiritual dimension in the process. She is creative and flexible and adjusts counseling techniques to the unique needs of each client. She is compassionate, empathetic, friendly and professional. No matter the age or circumstance, Cheryl is the counselor for you. She will work hard to meet your needs and change your life!

Anthony was great in our couples counseling. Very accepting and gave us a great platform to be able to communicate effectively and work on our issues week by week. I also loved that he came to our home so that we were in a familiar setting which made it easier to talk. I would highly recommend him to anyone looking for therapy!

I highly recommend seeking help through Micaela. She offers great insight, a relaxed, non-judgemental environment, and an overall great therapy experience. She listens well and will tell you exactly what she sees about a situation whether it is good or bad news. Micaela is compassionate about her work and her clients. She has always answered me efficiently whenever I have questions or need a listening ear. And I am living a happier, more positive life since seeing her. I have seen a few different therapists from around the area in the past, and this is by far the best experience I have had. Micaela is outstanding at what she does.

Without Amy and her team, my teen daughter would have continued suffering, leaving her feeling hopeless, helpless, lost and confused. After nine months of receiving therapy at Lilac, my daughter now sees a light at the end of the tunnel and, most importantly, hope that life gets better. Amy also has taught me and my husband how best to communicate with and parent our daughter. She showed us that we are not alone and that we can be and are an integral part in our daughter's recovery. Amy gives us reassurance that we, as parents, are not failures -- and for that, we immensely thank her. We continue on our journey of health and healing, and with Amy's help and from all of the staff at Lilac, we now see sunlight when there once only was darkness. We can't thank Lilac enough.

Rychel has worked for several years with my son, a young adult who has mild autism. He doesn’t typically have much to say, but Rychel has unlocked a great deal of communication. He speaks with her more than anyone I’ve seen him interact with. Rychel is professional, smart and creative. She has successfully used my son’s interests and passions to teach him in a couple of key areas, helping him learn to react in a flexible rather than anxious manner to changes in routine or unexpected occurrences, and helping him learn to broaden his narrow areas of interest. From my observation, she has a logical and calm approach to her therapy, and I suspect her other clients make strides just as my son has.

I have been receiving service with Midwest Integrative and Jeneb Coleman for over a year. They are extremely professional and flexible with scheduling. Through the time I've been there I have gone through many traumatic life transitions and Midwest Integrative has assisted me weekly to ensure that I was emotionally and mentally healthy/stable enough to overcome each obstacle. I am very thankful. I feel more like family then a client. I highly reccommend their services!

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.
