Deb has been a great therapist! I was having a very rough time before I started meeting with her. She's very easy to talk to and will form a plan of action on what you can do, which I love! Deb is also very flexible and will work around your schedule. I would definitely recommend her!

Kori has a calm demeanor, professional conduct, effective techniques to really show you what is going on in your situation as you are talking with her, and gives very insightful advice. She wasn't staring at the clock to end your session but rather waited for a stopping point in the discussion. She responded very quickly to my inquiry and was extremely accommodating. I would definitely recommend her if you are in need of a therapist.

Todd is engaging throughout our sessions. His approach to relationship counseling seemed different than we would have expected from a typical relationship therapist but it’s also one of the main reason why we choose to have him work with us.

I have sought help from therapists off and on in my 60+ years of living and thankfully, have been helped through some rough patches by a few of them. Too many times though-I didn't find the guidance, tools or insight that I needed in order to make some healthy decisions for myself. More often than not, I would stay stuck spinning because one size does not fit all when it comes to personal therapy. Guidance, insight and tools towards finding my own answers has happened in my therapeutic process with Angela. because of that and more, I feel extremely confident in that decisions I have come to make; I've found a safe environment where I can trust; and I've allowed myself to be open to trying different tools that have opened up new discoveries. She SEES me and MEETS me right where I am. I have often hesitated in the past to offer up a therapists name because it's such an important relationship. I am honored and proud to say that I have recommended Angela to many acquaintances and will continue to do so.

Ginny Mackles is an amazing practitioner of both mental health and techniques to promote health and wellness. Ginny has a unique style of integrating mindfulness practices such as Reiki and meditation into her counseling sessions. Ginny's gentle and straightforward approach to helping you superseded my expectations. Ginny helped me identify goals, plan strategies and stay accountable to taking action steps toward achieving my goals. This not only helped me improve my mental health, increase my efforts at personal development, but changed my way of viewing my physical health and spiritual well being. As a student in one of her Reiki Training classes I learned not only how to practices this healing technique on myself but also how to practice and teach it to others. I highly recommend her as a teach/mentor/therapist.

Working alongside Anna Grimm in providing Equine Assisted Psychotherapy, I’ve been made aware of what a gifted therapist she is. She’s smart and thoughtful; she listens well and gets clients to hear themselves; she’s engaging and 100% present; she’s kind and humane; she’s funny. And her compassion and her empathy cannot be missed. Anna meets you where you are in your life; she exemplifies caring and the desire to help you move forward and work through the issues and struggles that life has given you. And her photographer’s eye becomes the one that brings insight to the therapist/client relationship. If you’re looking for a therapist, Anna will not disappoint you.

Jeremiah's Coaching isn't something that can be explained, it has to be experienced. In just a few sessions he was able to help me make sense of past experiences and feelings in a very simple and enlightening way. He was able to bring a great sense of clarity and peace to things I'd been struggling with for years. Working with Jeremiah has been the difference between knowing what I want to happen and being shown how to make it happen.

Kelly is a highly-skilled, sensitive and professional therapist who goes the extra mile for her clients. She is a joy to be around, and is remarkably inciteful and empathetic to others’ pain. I see how many people benefit from her multidisciplinary, warm and intuitive approach. She skillfully navigates the line of bringing a client along while “pushing” them to be their better selves. Kelly is always my top referral source!

I've come to know that looking for the right therapist is more difficult than finding that perfect bathing suit. Jessi felt RIGHT from the beginning. I saw quickly in our session a knowledge of therapy skills that approached my needs quickly. Diving into family of origin was exactly the right approach for me and an important step that no other previous therapist had introduced me to. So very grateful to have a safe place to put my vulnerabilities.

    Bennett and I worked together at South Metro Human Services for approximately a year and a half. I believe Bennett excelled at working with clients who experienced psychosis, negative symptoms of schizophrenia, and, especially, cluster B personality disorders. He consistently made clients feel heard and supported. Bennett also demonstrated skill in engaging clients in conversations that facilitated self-advocacy with external providers, and, when clients faced barriers to advocating for themselves, Bennett stepped in to make sure their concerns were addressed. As a co-worker, Bennett was an incredible support and ally. As one of the few female employees on our team, I struggled a great deal with the experience of implicit and accidental sexism. I also came to this position fairly early in my recovery from my own experiences with depression and suicidal ideation and an eating disorder. Bennett was an amazing partner in this-- he validated my frustrations, problem-solved difficulties, called out other colleagues, and overall made going to work a happy and hopeful experience. I cannot recommend Bennett Jones highly enough. As a co-worker in the mental health field, and as a friend and support person who filled a puedo-therapist role in my daily life, Bennett is a deeply compassionate and remarkably gifted listener, and working with him has enriched my life in ways I am still discovering, months after our working relationship has ended.

        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.
