I am really impressed with how accessible Cheryl is to her patients. There was mulitple times I found myself in a panic, and Cheryl met with me right then to help sort it out! I'd also like to add that Cheryl is a great teacher. I have found that therapy is quite a learning process, and she has provided me with several techniques to help me cope with various issues. As a couples therapist, I was very impressed with how she was able to help us communicate in a very positive way, which has made our relationship much more stable. I reccommend Cheryl to anyone, whether they are seeking couples therapy or private sessions. She has been wonderful!

Dawn G.
Verified review

My name is Dawn, and I am an independently licensed Marriage and Family Therapist. I can attest to the quality of Anne's graduate work both clinically and academically as we pursued this degree as cohorts in the same graduating class, and served together in the same clinical internship setting. Anne has had excellent training, and is competent in her understanding and use of multiple therapeutic modalities. She has a balanced approach to her work, well utilizing both empathy and counsel. She has a fun and engaging personality with a wit that promotes easy delivery of information even in challenging circumstances. She is competent with a wide range of clients from adolecence to late adulthood and collaborates with her clients to assist with a broad spectrum of life's needs and challenges. I have also known Anne as a personal friend and have seen how she has endured through many difficult life circumstances with strength and perseverance. I have seen the quality and strong ethic of her work. I have also seen her compassionate and engaging personality promote her to high levels of recognition in other work environments and fields of interest. All of this said, I would give Anne a strong recommendation. Her knowledge and skills will serve you well! Dawn G., MS, IMFT Counselor, Marriage & Family Therapist

Verified review

When faced with an irreparable eight-year marriage (due to infidelity) and a child in the mix, my spouse and I never thought genuine reconciliation was possible for our family. Both of us were extremely skeptical of professional counseling due to a horribly biased past experience with another counselor. Though reluctant at first, we searched for help one last time--knowing our issues were too big and too many for us to solve on our own. By chance (or fate), we found Doris House and nearly six months later, my wife and I have recommitted to one another in a way unlike never before--and for the first time in our marriage the road ahead is brighter than ever thought possible. Sure, there are cheaper counsellors out there... but I assure you, every penny we've spent has been returned to us a hundred fold in her guidance, experience, compassion and professionalism! I'd recommend Doris to anyone seeking guidance in life, regardless of the matter. If you need help, don't wait--contact Doris. You'll be glad you did.

My husband and I have been to a few different therapists. We never found someone that seem to understand both of our positions, which is exactly what Bella manages to do when we meet with her. She listens to both of us and she never judges us for anything that we say or do. It feels really good to be heard.

Anthony has helped me through a lot the last few months. He is very professional yet flexible. He has worked around my schedule, my child being in and out of the hospital, and around several life changes. He really has away of looking at things that has been very helpful in my life and makes himself accessible to his clients. I would recommend him to anyone looking for the professional help that we all desperately need!

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.

Have seen quite a few therapists/counselors and none of them have been as helpful as Vivian. You don’t just talk about your problems - she helps you find practical ways to tackle your issues and apply them to your life. Saw her for 6 months during my divorce and I don’t know how I would have gotten through it without her.

Never before have my husband and I honestly felt so secure in our marriage. Our trust issues are week by week becoming less prominent and our bond with one another strengthening. With my husband's abuse as a child and my crippling insecurities I'm not sure if our young marriage had the strength without Lucinda's weekly counseling and amazing advice. Thank you Lucinda and I hope other's will find what kind of healing or couple counseling that they are seeking.

About

Rick's own story of recovery has opened the door to help many clients who find themselves struggling with addictions, marital, parenting, and trauma based issues. Rick graduated from Friends University with a master's degree in science in marriage and family therapy. Since earning his degree and license in the state of Kansas, Rick has gone on to complete training in sexual addiction recovery therapy, and EMDR (eye movement desensitization and reprocessing). Rick specializes in treating couples who are healing from the effects of addicting patterns in one or both of the partners. Rick's emphasis and specialized training in the area of sexual addiction puts him on the cutting edge of treatment of this issue that is faced by so many couples today. The popularity and accessibility of pornography has propelled this problem to being one of the fastest-growing problems counselors are seeing today. Rick will equip you with education, accountability and marital resources to help your marriage be better than it ever has been. Rick has also completed the basic training for EMDR therapy. Eye movement desensitization and reprocessing therapy has become one of the preferred methods of treating trauma.

This can be from “I was never good enough for a parent" to major life-treating traumatic events. i.e. natural disasters and combat stress.

Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

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.

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.

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.

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.
