I was diagnosed with anxiety disorder in my twenties and BP II in my thirties. The social anxiety was treatable with medication (Clonazepam). My bipolar II diagnosis came after a long bout with depression where I found that most medication had either zero effect or an adverse effect on me, this is when I first tried psychotherapy. Following my fathers death I went through an extended hypomanic episode which led to a debilitating crash. I sought help and found Melissa Cramer / Grow Heal Love. Not every therapist will be the right one for you, I was very lucky to find Melissa Cramer. Our weekly sessions usually began with mindfulness training, a guided meditation that allowed me to be more present for talk therapy. I have had therapists turn me down as a client because “I may be disruptive” being bipolar and a sundry list of other absurdities. My BP disorder was a non-issue with Melissa. Yes, some days I may be racing a bit and talking a mile a minute or be a bit down but I always felt calm and centered after each session. Ms Cramer’s demeanor is the same when seeing me manic or depressed which I came to really appreciate, it’s a mood disorder not a death sentence. I feel a debt of gratitude to Melissa Cramer as through our sessions I am teaching again, making art and embarking on a new business endeavor.

I have seen Dr, Doug for both personal work and couples therapy for several months. I have found Dr. Doug to be a very caring, flexible and knowledgeable therapist. Our family has had many experiences with different therapist's through the years. I feel like Dr. Doug has a wide range of knowledge, brings all of it to the table and uses it skillfully. Dr. Doug also was able to see us after regular hours when very few others would (my husband works out of town and is only home on the weekends). I would not hesitate to recommend Dr. Doug to anyone and have already done so to many of my friends!

    I have known Alan since high school. Over the years he has become an extremely spiritual person. His extensive education and ecoerience in a variety of occult sciences and dpiritusl practices makes him very perceptive and intuitive He did a reading for me via phone in 2013 and was very accurate in many different areas. He is also a wonderful listener who is vompassionate and encouraging to his clients. He speaks many languages fluently and understands various cultures well. That enables him to help people from different backgrounds. I would highly recommend Alan for any type of spiritual guidance.

Most people come to counseling because they are stuck or find themselves increasingly conflicting in their relationships.

I am trained in a variety of methods, and share all my knowledge to help people achieve their goals. My hours are flexible, and I am willing to adjust my fees for those with financial difficulties. I offer experienced help for a wide range of difficult life issues.

    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.
