I've been seeing Nicanor for many years. He has helped myself and my husband through the years. He's very knowledgeable and excellent in Asian Bodywork and Qi Therapy. I have recommended him to many of my friends and colleagues and they have continued seeing him.

I have only good things to say about Nicanor. He is an excellent instructor who is very patient, willing to explain details, help make adjustments and teach the same movements as many times as needed, until I get it. He uses many different metaphors and stories to help me understand the concepts, movements and how to perform them. He teaches "real" Tai Chi with an authentic lineage which contains true power. Power for those in need of healing or power for those interested in martial arts. The teaching includes weapons and push hands, not just forms. I travel about 50 minutes each way to attend class and private lesson. Yes, he is that good. Much better than the other teachers in my local area (there are quite a few). Classes are typically an hour and half but Nicanor is willing to spend extra time with students at the end of class and we often will go longer than the scheduled time. I highly encourage you to try the classes and learn a truly beautiful and power art from one of the best in the area.

Over the last 25 years due to back problem I have had multiple massages. Grade one spondelotheisis and three degenerative disc. A lot of them were with long time veterans in the therapy field. After not getting any massages for the last 15 years I was starting to have more pain, spasms and other ailments due to lack of care and maintenance . Today I had my first massage by Deb Gordon and came away feeling a great deal less pain and l stress. Her Technique’s, Knowledge and sense of just where, and how much pressure to apply to my needs where amazing. She was up front with what she was going to do so there were no surprises. Keeping lines of communications open made for a first relaxing experience. Her ability and knowledge of work place stresses and strains on the body helped her to find and work on specific area for a lasting pain and stress free time. She had full knowledge and great advice about getting healthy and how to stay healthy. Her office and linens were clean and fresh. I didn’t feel rushed or hurried at any time during the session. The results lasted for the next week and then some. I would say this; if you have never had a massage or have had multiple massages that you would be very pleased by getting a massage by her. Thank You Deb

    We can't think of anyone else who we would have wanted to perform our wedding ceremony than Joel Grossman. He met with us twice prior to our wedding, one time for 2 hours to understand what would make it most meaningful for us. He understood us perfectly, made terrific suggestions for readings and music, and worked with us on the sequence of events. And, it all turned out perfect! Almost everyone present told us that the ceremony was the most beautiful and meaningful one they had ever attended. We highly recommend Joel Grossman to officiate at your wedding!

Clients are seen individually, in groups, and as part of a family. My role is to provide a catalyst for you to improve your relationships with family, friends and with yourself.

    About

    I have 23 years of experience as a massage therapist and have extensive knowledge in using raw foods to heal and cleanse the body. Utilizing energy healing as a part of the program, my clients receive that as an added bonus. My love for and of people and this work is a blessing. Having used internal cleansing, fasting and having had a colon hydrotherapy practice for years have given me a tremendous amount of insight into why people who often seek bodywork are suffering unnecessarily with many ailments. Sharing what I've learned from my own healing journey and my years of observance, self-education, and counseling clients makes what I have to offer unique. I look forward to working with you.

    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.
