Elev8 Wellness has changed my life. Jonathan is a friendly and caring person. He suggested nutritional changes, strength training and cardio. The results have been amazing. I lost 50+ pounds of fat and my strength has tripled. This last winter season of downhill Skiing was awesome (best ever)!! Back in April, Jonathon suggested I try cycling which I fell in love with. Life is so much happier and the everyday stress of life is so much easier to deal with. No matter what your fitness or lifestyle goals are, Elev8 Wellness will help you get there!

About my experience in dealing with Todd Smith ... after having had a successful career as a healthcare administrator and entrepreneur which enabled me to retire at the age of 52, I decided at the age of 65 that is was time for me to "give back" to society and do something constructive. So, I got a job as a school bus driver for the Eden Prairie, MN school system. I love young kids and felt this opportunity would enable me to help young people grow in maturity. After only a few months on the job, I quickly realized that I was failing miserably in dealing with the kids. As a father of three children and six grandkids, I thought I had all the requisite skills and experience to be a good influence on the kids on my bus. I was confused and almost heartbroken to realize that I could not successfully drive the kids back and forth to school while at the same time helping them mature. In truth, many of the kids on my bus were out of control and doing things that were actually counter productive to their growth in maturity. I thought seriously about going back into retirement. I was very close to quitting one day feeling like a total failure when Todd Smith got permission from management to ride along on my bus and help me learn some better skills for managing the children. The kids were misbehaving on my bus. I needed to earn their respect. My goal was to learn some techniques to better control their behavior. Todd coached me in many techniques including positive reinforcement, caring interactions, and the use of logical consequences. I needed to have better boundaries and not let the kids walk all over me - but to do it in a kind way. Todd was very kind to the kids which made me happy but also very direct in this approach ... giving me concrete instructions and homework. It was like a workshop in good parenting skills. As a result, I was able to keep my job and develop a satisfying relationship with the kids on my bus. Todd is a magnificent teacher. His guidance for me, even at the age of 65, was life changing. I can highly recommend Todd to help you achieve your own goals.

Angela helped me mainly get through anxiety issues such as why and what to do when I get anxious around others, what life means to me, and how to check myself every now and then to make sure I'm where I should be. Unique about her is when we would use the sand-therapy room, which gave room for creativity and interpretation in each situation, and was an extremely helpful visual representation of my feelings and changes over time. Fabulous lady, very appreciative of her.

Ginny has helped me and my family for many years. As a teacher, she taught my whole family reiki which is a wonderful healing tool. As a counselor and practitioner she helped us through the tragic loss of a loved one and helped me to recover from panic attacks and anxiety. Her meditation cd is wonderful. I could go on and on and could never thank her enough for her support, guidance and professionalism.

Jon Newcomb is a class act. He was able to bring me relief from anxiety and stress. He also helped me with my binge-eating. After one appointment, my body and brain were actually calm (they have not been for a long time). He has helped me deal with some tough situations and emotional challenges I've been facing. I am so grateful that I decided to try hypnotherapy with Mr. Newcomb. I feel much more balanced and peaceful.

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.
