Vladimire provided us couples therapy along with individual sessions during a very tough time in our lives. She provided us a warm environment where we were able to talk about things we could never have discussed on our own. She not only helped us as a couple, but she helped us grow and find our strengths individually as well. Without Vladimire's help and guidance I truly don't know where I would be right now. She still keeps in contact and checks in on us even though we are not actively seeing her currently. She truly cares. Thank you, we feel very grateful that we found her and would recommend Vladimire very highly.

Having met Dr. Anna is one of the best things that's ever happened to me. I had been in therapy for over a decade with various counselors, but now I know the difference between a therapist and a Therapist. She is warm, compassionate and creative, no two sessions are the same, and she seems to have an incredible repertoire of techniques at her disposal. She is always goal-oriented, makes sure that results are really happening, and always explains everything so clearly as you have never heard and never understood before. She has the greatest sense of humor, her academic knowledge is amazing, and her fine-tuned sensitivity boarders on the mystical. Yet she is always funny, down to earth, and real. I've never laughed so much in therapy sessions before! :-) I am so grateful, ... because I am finally discovering what "free" and "happy" really mean!

Very polite and professional. My only wish is that she had a massage table to use versus laying on my bed, which for my neck injury wasn't natural position for my neck to be comfortable. I still would recommend for massage, just maybe not for injury specific.

Verified review

I have a long history of positive and productive therapy, a lifelong commitment to holistic healing and personal growth and 14 years of 12 step work. While all of those supports have brought me much insight and a robust tool box for a happy and highly functional life; none has provided entire clarity around and subsequent relief from lifelong patterns and blocks I have never been able to access and therefore heal. I came to Lorraine in a state of relative crisis and in a matter of months, found myself leaping forward, addressing and resolving core issues I have struggled with my whole life. Her down to earth, relatable personality and style combined with her profound intuition and considerable expertise as a therapist and healer have offered me the most rapid and deep healing I have ever experienced. There is, with Lorraine, an energetic exchange that can only be experienced not described. I am infinitely grateful to have been referred to her. Nicole N.

As a counseling practioner, I use discretion when selecting my own therapist and marriage counselor. Tina quickly picks up the pulse of each individual as well as the dynamic between them. Her incisive and insightful comments are offered judiciously. She maintains high standards of integrity viz. HIPAA. Her availability is flexible for working couples. She balances being a caring person and professional. I highly recommend her for couples and individual therapy based on my experience with her in both areas. S.

I have struggled with depression most of my life and I am a survivor of sexual trauma. I have worked with many therapists over the years and have seen minimal results. When I first called Growth thru Change, they matched me with a therapist that specializes in my area of need. I have been doing a combination of both group and individual therapy which I could not find at any other agency. I have seen a positive shift in my ability to handle life responsibilities, make new friends, and return to work.

Words can not begin to express how thankful I am that I have found Dr Pace..He has this wonderful ability to make you feel comfortable from the moment you walk thru his door. He puts you at ease and makes you feel as if you are talking with a friend within minutes. He is able to make you think outside the box and see things from another perspective. I have seen therapist in the past but have never felt as good about my therapy as I do with Dr Pace.

There was an instant comfort I felt with Judy. I had never gone to therapy before and she put me at ease almost instantly. I started having sessions with her at a really difficult time in my professional career, and there were times when I thought I was doing everything I could, but she helped me realize there were more options and other avenues of achieving my goals that I hadn't even explored. Our sessions together really helped me through some very dark times in my life and when I couldn't afford therapy anymore after I lost my job and health insurance plan, she continued to send me text messages just to make sure I was doing ok. She is incredibly thoughtful and has given me valuable tools for handling anxiety and difficult work relationships.

Dan Minuchin is an outstanding family therapist, mental health consultant, trainer, teacher and clinical supervisor. I have had the fortune of working with him and observing him in all of these roles over the past several years. I initially worked with Dan about 10 years ago when I was a supervisor at agency that provided family therapy and services to families struggling with adolescents and families involved in the juvenile justice and child welfare systems. In this setting, he provided case consultation, supervision, and training to a team of social workers and family therapists. This model included live supervision and the use of a one way mirror. Dan would also accompany therapists on home visits to provide live consultations in the family's home. I later became a director of another similar family service program. I was able to hire Dan to provide Structural Family Therapy training to my entire clinical staff, as well as consultation, individual and group clinical supervision. His guidance and training was very well received by my staff and their skills as family therapists improved significantly. Dan is really a master trainer and has worked as a family therapist, teacher and trainer for several decades. He has an incredibly diverse personal and professional background and experience working with families of all walks of life. He is sensitive and well informed of the needs and experiences of families of color, immigrant families, LGBTQ families, blended families, Jewish Orthodox families, families struggling with substance abuse and mental illness, delinquent teens, children with special needs, and families dealing with divorce, loss and separation. I have referred many families to Dan and I feel confident that he is able to work with the most complex families of all backgrounds. Dan is thoughtful and empathic and has very high ethical standards. His structural and strategic approach to addressing problems is highly effective and families often will see progress in a short amount of time. I am a family therapist and clinician as well, and Dan has provided me with outstanding clinical supervision and guidance and has been instrumental in my own professional growth as a therapist and clinical supervisor.

At a time in my life when nothing but devastation was facing me, I made a chance call to Ed. Explaining the circumstances of my problem and needing a very quick first step to resolution, Ed not only assisted in providing the information needed to take the steps necessary to start recovery but he was there for each and every step that was taken from that moment on. Ed's method of "Whole-istic" therapy provided a solution that was healing, long lasting and complete. He is a person who has my total trust and I know will support me in my journey to recover. His methodology of therapy is to simply heal. I could not ask for anything better.

    Gene has a comprehensive approach with his clients, but somehow it never feels like there is stuffy “method” at work. I have engaged in several phone sessions with Gene, and the conversations just flowed, even as they were quietly breaking down barriers in my mind. From the first phone session, Gene is completely on your page, understanding where you’re coming from. There is nothing painful to disclose (as with traditional therapy sessions); just a few sentences about how you view certain events and feelings triggers Gene's intuitive ability to hone in on your particular pattern of logic, showing you what hinders your emotional well being and physical success. He often draws very clear examples from science, philosophy, and history, which elucidate the paradoxes of one's mind, and this makes understanding things much easier and more digestible. His intuitive abilities are well developed. He often verbalizes things hidden in plain sight, those dormant thoughts you’ve had but couldn’t voice; Gene brings them into the light. During my first session, he told me to visualize what had been a scene in a short film I was making, (this without my mentioning any part of it). There have been quite a few other serendipitous moments in his working with me. It’s as if he can pick up on the therapeutic elements already existing in your internal landscape. He teaches you to work with your own mind. He returns the power back to you. Above all, he is person of wisdom, and with it, a comprehensive understanding and compassion for the suffering of others—how we cause it, how we are crippled by it, and how we can let go of it. He shows you a logic that causes you to think differently, and with it, fears crumble, and opportunities open. He is incredibly accommodating and flexible with his schedule, often doing late phone sessions when need be, and responding to extra emails with questions. I’ve often written him what I couldn’t say on the phone. He digests all of the information you give him, and brings it to the table in a formal session. After a session, your mind feels lucid, as it always should. Working with Gene is a pleasure, both in the process of being in dialogue, as well as in the clear results that start to take shape in your life.

      I have done one on one therapy with Alana, as well as couples counseling with my boyfriend. One on one, she is incredible- she holds the space for you to break down and/or build yourself up. In terms of the work she did with my partner and I, after just one session there was a major shift in our relationship. Using the tools she showed us, we are able to communicate more patiently, openly, and kindly. I am very picky when it comes to mental health professionals, and I would recommend Alana 1,000 times.

      Joel is great, I have already recommended him to friends, and I hope to go back. He is very trustworthy and comfortable, he has lots of good techniques that he cycles through, but most of all he listens well and lets you guide the session. I found unconscious triggers that I was not aware of that never came out in other forms of therapy.

      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.
