David did an excellent job handling the whole thing. He knew a lot about the subject of marriage and weddings. I could tell this was not his first rodeo. He even went as far as to offer marriage consoling. We denied, but it was nice that he offered. I definitely would recommend David to anyone looking for an awesome officiant!

I have been in and out of the guidance of different therapists, life coaches, teachers, mentors, advisors and councilors. Not one of them is anywhere near the depth and scope of therapy I have experienced after one session with David. They don't even scratch the surface in comparison. David lets me be me without judgement or any expectation of how I need to be, say or act. He gently and lovingly shapes and molds my journey with my positive goals in mind. I am growing expedientually because he sees me, gets me, listens to me. Wouldn't have my therapy any other way. Highly recommend.

I’ve been to several therapists over the years and Brooke is the best. Brooke is passionate about her work and creative. I have been seeing Brooke for over a year now and I am so much happier now than I was before I started seeing her. I have learned to look at things differently and accept things that I didn’t want to confront. It has dramatically changed my life.

Verified review

Me and my wife worked with Don extensively on pre-marriage counseling and he eventually even married us. I have only positive things to say about his skillset, demeanor, and willingness to help us. Don provides great tools and communication advice for couples. He helped us understand our soul wounds and discover why our feelings of hurt were so intense coming from the other person. Empathy, the word of God, prayer, and unselfish loves are things Don is made of and believes in. I recommend Don and his services to enhance your marriage and work through conflicts of all types both personally and with your spouse.

Jenna is a great therapist. She helped me and my wife through a difficult time and I am proud to say our marriage is a lot stronger because of Jenna. I recommended her to a close friend of mine, who is going through a completely different issue and he has experienced the same positive results. I highly recommend Jenna as a therapist.

My husband and I truly appreciate Mr. Matthews's guidance. We researched a lot of therapists, and feel that we made the absolute best decision.

Pastor Shibu Cherian is a true man of God whose passion lies purely in serving God and is devoted to helping other to be fruitful for Christ. Four years ago me and my husband had received marriage counseling by Pastor Shibu Cherian, who helped us establish a strong foundation in the word of God in building our married life. A successful marriage is built on the true knowledge of the word and total trust in God. I highly support and promote Pastor's ministry and his dedication to serve God through counseling. I encourage couples who are looking for advise on building a strong marriage relationship based on christian faith to contact Pastor Shibu Cherian.

Pastor Hasani Lateef

    Verified review

    Pastor Hasani Lateef possesses the rare ability to mix professionalism and approachability. While the ceremony he conducted for our daughter and our son-in-law was beautiful in its Biblical foundation, Pastor Lateef’s graciousness as well as his kindness toward all involved spoke just as loudly as the sermon he delivered. As the Mother of the Bride I appreciated his calming influence the evening of rehearsal and his eye for detail. He truly understands that the marriage ceremony reaches beyond the Bride and Groom and I feel his willingness to extend an attentive heart and hand of friendship past the couple sets Pastor Hasani apart. His relationship with Jesus Christ and his genuine love for the God he serves was evident in all he did as our wedding officiant and it is with these qualities in mind, I highly recommend Pastor Hasani Lateef. You will be blessed by your time with him.

      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 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.

      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.   

      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.
