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.

My husband and I have been to counseling a couple different times throughout our 7 year marriage, each with multiple sessions. We find John very helpful and we are very comfortable talking with him. We feel he really listens so he can understand us before just throwing out advice. He has always been a positive mentor and we will continue to go back even if our marriage has improved.

Ginny Mackles was my therapist for ten years. She was easy to open up to about my life issues. We worked together to help me gain insights in a gentle way so that i was able to move through my pain from the past. I am extremely thankful to have been able to work with her.

    This was not your typical marriage by any stretch of the imagination, but through it all, Janelle stood by us and rolled with everything. I was impressed that within such a short time from requesting, she met with us to look at details of what we wanted for our ceremony. Possibilities were emailed to us to look at, and we were able to design exactly what we wanted. Thank you Janelle for making our day a memorable experience! Lots of laughter and reason to celebrate! Namaste Dwight and Melissa

    Chris was awesome, he met with my wife and I about an hour before the ceremony. In that time he met and greeted my wife, family & friends. Got me to feel comfortable and not so nervous even told us all a little about himself. When it came to the ceremony he was able to complete it exactly how I wanted. I asked for it to be simple and sweet, and gave exactly that and also acknowledged that I just wanted to get to our marriage and not be so concerned with the wedding. My marriage ceremony was small and simple and when I do decide to have a wedding I would definitely choose to use him again. And I would recommend him to anyone looking for an officiant. Also it was awesome to find out that we were his first same-sex couple.

    An "eye opening" experience. Anna was able to not only help save our marriage but allowed my wife and I to become better communicators. We are stronger now than every before.

    Tahmi is an excellent therapist. She is worth every penny and then some extra brownie points for being so awesome. She makes you feel comfortable and relaxed. She is very conversational in her approach and everything she has to offer as far as technical and life advice she is very helpful. If you have a session with her, you will sit on a couch or a chair and tell her what you're comfortable telling her. She never pries for information and she helps you think about your problems in a way that doesn't minimize them, but helps you think about them in a different way than you would by yourself. I am so glad that I went on this site and contacted her 2 months ago. I can't recommend her highly enough!!

    I went to Craig Lang for help with some anxiety issues. He was very knowledgeable, empathetic and helpful. He was professional and through our work, my anxieties faded - awesome! I highly recommend Craig - he is not only a great hypnotist, but a great therapist and person all wrapped up in one!

    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 would recommend Noelle to anyone. I believe she helped create a solid foundation in our pre-marital counseling & I truly believe that she helped save out marriage during challenging times. Noelle guided us in a non-judge mental manner. She gave us hope. She gave us homework to work on at home to use the tools she had taught us in our sessions. I honestly looked forward to meeting with her. I'm very thankful to have Noelle in my life & quite honestly - I'm not convinced my marriage would have survived without her. Again, I would recommend Noelle to anyone. She is professional, trustworthy, respectable, accountable...,I can't say enough good things.

    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.

    About

    1. I am trained in Marriage and Family therapy. This is otherwise called systems theory. It presents principles that work. I can offer ideas that make sense and provide a specific direction you can use to enhance your relationship. 2. I am affiliated with the Directory of Marriage-Friendly Therapists - dedicated to supporting relationships. Signals will not be sent that perhaps you aren't right for each other. 3. I can also work with individuals cognitively to discover why they do what they do. 4. I am trained in providing specific ways to improve communication and conflict-resolution. 5. I provide support, encouragment, insight, direction, specific principles, experiential training and creative approaches to therapy. 6. I can also attend to the spiritual if the person / couple desire. I am more than familiar with branches of world religion and Christian faith. I don't believe we can segment ourselves from the spiritual. On the other hand, people who do not wish to go there will find good psychology also practiced that can enhance their life.

    Q & A

    Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

    What is a life coach?

    A professional, accredited life coach works with people to help them make important changes in their life, either growing in their profession or changing gears in their personal lives. They help clients turn their dreams or wishes into realistic, attainable goals. They guide people through the process of making life changes by helping them evaluate the steps they must take to reach a particular goal, then help them decide how — and whether — to take those steps in the most efficient, effective and rewarding way possible. A life coach acts as a motivator, strategist and accountability partner. Unlike a therapist, a life coach doesn’t help solve problems from your past — they’re focused on helping you move forward with new ways of acting and thinking that will help you reach your goals. Some people specialize in particular types of life coaching, including life balancing coaches, small business coaches, executive coaches and personal finance coaches. Some meet clients in person, while others hold consultations over the phone.

    Regardless of which type of life coach you’re interested in, make sure the person holds an International Coach Federation (ICF) credential. There are three tiers of credentials: Associate, Professional and Master, which require coaching experience ranging from 100 hours to 2,500 hours.

    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 does a life coach cost?

    A life coach helps clients set and reach professional and personal goals, develop positive habits, and deal with stress. Some people meet with a life coach once or twice, while others form an ongoing professional relationship, meeting regularly in person or on the phone. The average national cost to meet with a life coach ranges from $80 to $130 an hour. Some coaches offer per-session pricing, especially for one-time meetings; expect to pay an average of $100-$125. People who want to work with a coach over a period of time to explore life transitions, career growth or lifestyle changes may be able to get discounted pricing in a package. For example, three 60-minute sessions cost an average of $300, four 60-minute sessions cost an average of $350, and four 60- to 90-minute sessions plus unlimited contact between sessions cost an average of $400. Some specific types of coaching, such as relationship or marriage coaching, cost more than standard life coaching. For instance, three 60-minute relationship coaching sessions cost an average of $500, four 60-minute sessions cost an average of $550, and six 60- to 90-minute sessions cost an average of $650 when purchased as a package. Training and experience can also affect the cost of hiring a life coach. An Associate Certified Coach, who holds a certification that requires only 60 hours of training and 100 hours of coaching experience, will charge less than a Master Certified Coach, who typically has at least 200 hours of training and 2,500 hours of coaching experience.   

    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.

    Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
