I have been a client of Ken's for several months. When I began my search for help, I called several different Counselors with the hope that I would find who would be the best fit for me. I was immediately impressed by Ken's knowledge, expertise, compassion and kindness during that first phone call. He spoke to me for twenty minutes where others gave me 2-3 minutes, tops. Ken seemed to know precisely what I was going through and what I needed. I not only got the sense that he wanted to help, but that he genuinely cared. In many subsequent counseling sessions thereafter, he has helped me immensely to discover things about myself that are positive and some things that need work. Ken brings a wealth of experience, wisdom, kindness, and knowledge to each session. I always walk out feeling stronger, and better equipped to discover more about life and how I can live mine to the fullest. I highly recommend Ken as a Counselor/Therapist! I am thankful every day that I made that initial phonecall.

I really enjoyed my experience with Ayanna Mann through Ascended Volition! She gave me great insight and wisdom concerning the issues that I brought to her and I could tell that she genuinely cared about the outcome of my situation as if it was here own life or loved one. I was a little nervous to open up to a stranger at first but she created a comfortable and peaceful environment. It felt like I was talking to a friend and since I don't have many I needed that!! Lol If you are looking for a genuine and compassionate person to walk you through your issues, I would definitely recommend Ayanna Mann!! I just purchased her book a few weeks ago and it's certainly an extension of her love, compassion and empathy for others!

After a brutal divorce, the stress in my life was overwhelming. My counselor recommended Timothy to help with my anxiety and insomnia. I felt so much after my first session, I couldn't believe the difference. I've gone back for a few follow ups and I feel 100% better. He's given me the strength to move forward and I finally feel like myself again. He helped my sister and a co-worker, too. If you need to get your life back on track, go see Timothy. Highly recommended!

Marina had been a huge help in dealing with emotions from not feeling I was worthy growing up most of my life being told I was dumb she's helped me overcome a lot of my anxieties and underlying emotions that I kept bottled up for fear of being ostrasized by family and friends she's helped me find my inner voice to be able to place boundaries so that I'm not taken advantage of by family and friends and exes as well she's helped me regain my confidence that was lacking from so many abusive relationships she's helped me in saying no! She's an amazing counselor, I've worked with several counselors ,but she's by far the best that I've ever delt with ,she's the only one to have helped thru all my ups and downs.

While working with Ms. Archibald at Detroit Behavioral Institute, I first noticed and was very pleased with her attentiveness, communication with staff and compassion for those she serviced. Working with children who come from various, yet similar, backgrounds and being able to bridge the gap of understanding was and is what makes Ms. Archibald a great counselor but not just the youth but also anyone who may be in need. No matter how exhausting the work may be, Ms. Archibald continues to improve her quality of work to better the quality of life for others beside herself. Selfless, persevering and having a timely attitude is only a brief look into the remarkable characteristics she posses.

My husband was apprehensive about seeing a counselor who is a woman for fear she'd be bias, but he was pleasantly surprised and comfortable talking to Melva about issues in our marriage. I felt Melva was supportive to both of us, gave us homework that actually helped, and taught us how to communicate better. Not only would I recommend her, I have recommended her many times.

Pastor Ed Armstead has contributed significantly to my spiritual growth, maturity and understanding. His love for God and His people is absolutely unquestionable, and his dedication to service, coupled with his transparency and humility, represents the true tenets of Christianity well. I couldn't ask for a better teacher, mentor, marriage counselor, friend, or Pastor.

About

My work seems to be an extension of who I am rather than a thing that I do. That is, I experience being with someone in a helpful manner, as a natural part of me. From my clients' perspectives, I am told that I am not like any other therapist they have known, in that they feel my interest and care for them is genuine and not just a professional courtesy.

About

Are you struggling with a painful experience and pretending everything is still okay? Are difficult, negative people making life miserable for you? Do you feel lonely, or like you’re on an emotional roller coaster and desire to end the wild ride? It’s difficult to go through each day, feeling frenzied to get out of the rut of unsatisfying relationships, daily job stress, worries about your future or that of your child and the sense of disconnection from how life was supposed to be. You can get unstuck, and I’m here to help. Being the single woman who feels left out and lonely when surrounding you are old friends pairing up and looking as if their lives couldn’t be more blessed, is a difficult position to be in. Supporting yourself on your own and at the end of the day, having energy and time to make new friends is stressful and difficult. What you really want is to be more deeply connected, to express more clearly your dreams and your voice, and know what steps will let you live the best possible life. Maybe you know that nothing will change if you don't get help. Deep in your heart, you are aware that what’s at stake for you is not merely current happiness, but also future success. Working with me can help you see what’s occurring in your life from new perspectives. I have experience with these specific issues and can show you how to find your voice, end loneliness, and create the life you yearn for. If you’re similar to others who have worked with me, perhaps you believe that time will sort out things. But has that previously really worked to your advantage? Perhaps people tell you that there’s nothing wrong with you, that you don’t need counseling, and that might be true, but still, you’re miserable feeling anxious, lonely, sad, and like time is running out on you. Why have yourself go through that when you don’t need to? Spend a minute to visualize what it would be like to feel truly connected to supportive, positive people. Life doesn’t need to be a struggle. However, waiting improves nothing. Take the first step to happiness. I help women find emotional health.

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.
