If you are unhappy, entrenched in old habits and aren't living up to your full potential: I can help. Together, we will discover what is blocking you from living a rich, fulfilling and productive life and work through the root issues so that you can achieve a deep transformation. My Background Information: I was trained as a medical doctor in Vienna, Austria. I have been successfully working with clients in the capacity of an emotional healer for the past years. I have always had an interest in holistic ways of healing, incorporating both my medical knowledge (western medicine) and alternative medicine because these areas complement and enhance one another. My therapy incorporates a range of techniques including drama therapy, feeding your demons (exercise), family constellations and meditation that have been demonstrated to be effective and transformative. Behind our physical ailments, there is almost always a psychological or emotional disturbance and that is where my focus is. Together, we will heal, starting with the root and not the symptom, so you can come closer to leading the life you want.See more

I help people overcome Relationship Conflict, Religious Trauma, PTSD, Anxiety, and Depression through expert online counseling that is rooted in science, not faith. I understand the sense of overwhelm that often comes from these struggles. It's the sleepless nights, and the inability to get out of bed the next day. It's the constant sense of worry, or that inexplicable feeling that everything is about to fall apart. It's not understanding why you feel so angry all the time, or may spontaneously burst into tears. It's the frustration that comes with just wanting to live a "normal" life. Thankfully, that's not the end of your story. I want to help you laugh again, recover your motivation, and overcome those barriers that prevent you from living your best life. I take the time to genuinely connect with my clients, and, through the use of evidence-based treatments, I have helped hundreds of people wrestling with anxiety, depression, and trauma recover their quality of living. I know that choosing a counselor is difficult. Visit my website or schedule a free phone consultation to see if we'd be a good fit. I can't wait to work with you, and unlock your fullest potential together.See more

Leslie is a therapist, teacher, and cultural visionary. Using a psycho-spiritual approach Leslie guides people towards more intimate relationships with themselves, those they love, and the divine source that connects us all. Leslie offers therapeutic video counseling from any location to individuals, couples, and families.   With an emphasis on the unconscious programed mind, attachment systems theory, epigenetic generational wounds, collective gender wounds, spiritual wisdom, and a sprinkle of astrology - clients are provided with all the knowledge and resources they need to feel supported on their healing journey home to their authentic selves. "Deep inside of every one of us, there is a knowing that we exist for more than just making money and watching Netflix. Our lives have a purpose. Our greatest struggles are indicators of where our soul yearns to expand. These challenges are the invitations into more authentic parts of ourselves.  You don’t have to be alone on the journey. No matter what’s been done to you, or what you’ve done, you deserve a caring and judgment-free space to heal. My approach to psychotherapy is holistic, and my framework is psycho-spiritual in nature. I believe that the mental, emotional, physical, spiritual, and relational health of each human is intimately and profoundly connected in ways science is only beginning to understand.  It is possible to find freedom from self-limiting patterns, traumatic experiences, and develop deeply satisfying relationships. When we interpret our journey through the lens of the soul, we can not only change the very core of our existence in this lifetime, but the experience of future generations and our souls experience in future lifetimes."See more

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 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.

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.

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.
