Who would've ever thought I'd have to leave Manhattan & travel all the way to Vegas to find this brilliant, fellow NYer- by far the best therapist I've ever had! I initially reached out to Marnie regarding couples counseling but eventually saw her for both couples counseling and for individual therapy. Finding Marnie in this uneducated wasteland of incompetence was a breath of fresh air. If you are lucky enough to schedule an appointment with her, you will see that she is like no other therapist you've ever met. Time is never an issue yet she works quickly and cuts out all the bullshit, getting right to the important matters at hand. I've finally tackled issues that I put on the back burner for 20 years. She's restored confidence in myself that I had sucked out of me years ago in my teenage years. She's made me see myself and my relationship in a totally new light. Giving hope that it's never too late to work on yourself or a relationship going thru a rocky period. I feel like she's my Robin Williams in "Good Will Hunting" and it's only my 3rd session with her. And yes she's that good if her MSW from Columbia didn't already impress you enough. Reach out to her and don't look back. You could travel to every city in the country seeking the best psychiatrists, social workers etc and still not find a gem like Marnie. I've only been in Vegas 2 years and she's the one person I'll remember forever. Thank you Marnie.

Recently tried facial stretch therapy for the first time. Between a job that requires physical activity and a steady workout regimen I routinely receive deep tissue or reflexology massages , although helpful neither is as beneficial as the stretch therapy session. The overall feeling was of muscle tension relief combined with an energy surge and lightness..similar to a great yoga class. Heidi , was my stretch therapist and she was incredibly professional , patient and knowledgeable. The session scheduled for 1 hour lasted 75 minutes as Heidi worked through the stretches seamlessly and without hurry. Explaining the process in laymen terms but also giving detailed explanations when queried. Heidi was cheerful and pleasant while having an impressive focus and attention to detail. Highly recommend her and stretch therapy. Can't wait for my next session.

Dr. Kalodner has been of immense help to my son. He is happier, calmer, and far more well behaved and in control of his impulses since he began working with her. More than just therapy, Dr. Kalodner has given my son hope, skills, and confidence. She geniunely cares about him as a person and not simply as a client. I would highly recommend her to any parent.

Melissa was the most effective therapist I have ever had an appointment with. She seemed to really understand me, and no one has ever understood me and my specific problems before. Melissa was amazingly nice, and so easy to talk to. I would recommend her to anyone who needs therapy, no matter what they need, because she will always be able to help.

I have had massages from different therapists in the past and Maddy is far above the rest. She works at a deep level, beyond the physical, to get to the root cause of the problem and uses her gifts to work them out. She asks a lot of questions and gets you involved in the healing process. I was amazed at the strength she uses when requested or needed Be ready to relax, as her hands are magical. If I were you, I would not go anywhere else for a massage because Maddy is the very best.

Sue is a great therapist to work with. She is very approachable and made me feel very comfortable. I appreciated that Sue asked questions, would probe into things and helped guide our sessions- I never felt like I was just awkwardly talking to someone only half listening. She engages and was tremendously helpful to me.

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.
