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've known Chris as both an academic peer and coworker, and I've never worked with someone with as great a passion for what he does. Chris is able to engage with students through a (seemingly) endless supply of energy, then deepens that connection by presenting nothing but authenticity. In counseling settings, he is able to directly engage the situation and provide valuable insight due to incredible interpersonal skills and social sensitivity.

Our family sought Anna's expertise during and in the years following my divorce. Without going into great detail, my case was a very complicated and multi-faceted one. There were many factors the 2 children needed help working through, and Anna was amazing with them from beginning to end. Her compassion for her clients is overwhelming, as is her ability to connect and forge a strong trusting relationship. Because I know it was an important element to myself choosing a counselor, I'll add that she also presents herself very well professionally should attorneys and judges become necessary. I would recommend her to anyone seeking family counseling. My children adore her and I am forever grateful for her. We would not be where we are today if not for her guidance and dedication.

Brian has a consistent positive attitude and helps focus our conversations on what's working in my efforts to confront mental health challenges. What's more, his sliding scale makes it easy for me to invest in my mental health.

About

Apart from being qualified to do my job, I feel that it is very important to have empathy with everyone that comes into my office. Many times people are dealing with so much stress and they just want to be listened to. I form a caring, and professional relationship with my clients and this fosters trust. When there is a foundation of trust, clients tend to be more open and honest about what's really going on and we can get to the root of their concern and work on getting them well. Its all about YOU! the client.

About

Solo practice of Dr. Jill Zimmerman, LPC, LMFT, specializing in PTSD, phobias, marriage and family, domestic and sexual abuse, anxiety, depression, and life coaching. Powerful new therapy techniques recently discovered and used at Integra Counseling Services dramatically reduce the time needed to accomplish a meaningful change. Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR), for example, is a method by which traumatic memories that are causing distress can be reprocessed. Individuals are able to take what is useful, self-enhancing, or instructive from their experiences and discard the rest or self-heal. This self-healing also occurs very rapidly and, therefore, people do not have to spend excessive amounts of time or money to achieve the natural healing process of the mind, body, and spirit.

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.
