I've been struggling with anxiety and anger issues since teenage years, and have tried therapy in the past but never stuck with it because I always found myself getting impatient with the therapists or the process. However, Dr Eskalyo slowly but efficiently helps me realize the benefits of psychotherapy, by digging deeper into my subconscious mind. She never makes me feel judged, or pressured. Scheduling is flexible, which works with my crazy work schedule. She's also very cooperative and patient with paperworks for my insurance. I highly recommend Dr Eskalyo, especially for those who are skeptical but would like to try therapy.

I have been seeing M. Batchelder for over ten years. She has been a great help in getting me through the most difficult years of my life. She has been treating me for depression and anxiety and I am feeling better than I ever expected. She has helped me through both my career and problems with marriage. She is open minded in her work and will work hard to find way to help without ever being dogmatic. I would recommend her and have.

Are you feeling stuck in a relationship or career transition and don't know how to proceed next? Are you experiencing stress, anxiety, or depression as a result? Would you like a collaborative, active therapist to help you make links between past and present, intentions and actions, helping you move forward? I am a licensed clinical psychologist specializing in the psychodynamic and relational-interpersonal treatment of children, adolescents, and adults. I received my education at Tufts University and Long Island University. I completed postdoctoral training in both outpatient community mental health for families and interpersonal psychoanalytic therapy for adults. I offer a flexible, integrative treatment approach, tailored to each client's individual needs. Having published research on the uniqueness of each client-therapist dyad, I tend to be active, using moment-to-moment process in therapy to help you understand patterns and create change in your primary relationships. My areas of interest and expertise include relational and occupational transitions in young adulthood, anxiety, depression, trauma, parent-child relational problems, social and developmental delays, including autism-spectrum disorders across the lifespan, play therapy, and family therapy. I would welcome the chance to help you make progress. Helping clients to gain insight or make a connection that wasn't previously crystallized is one of my favorite parts of psychodynamic therapy. I love observing real changes emerge in my clients' sense of self and relationships with others, and maximizing their potential for growth and well-being.

My priority is to tailor treatments for the individual and not obligate customers to conform to predetermined methods as a therapist. I provide individual, couples', and group treatment, and if applicable, can provide a combination of these modalities. Above all, I value the growth potential and creativity of every human being. I believe that no matter how firm one may be in a given situation, change is possible. I strongly believe in the power of the therapeutic process to heal and to grow. Though it may be hard work and at times somewhat painful, if you are committed to the process, there is so much to gain. As a therapist, I take a holistic approach to working with people. I have close relationships with other psychologists, psychiatrists, naturopaths, acupuncturists, nutritionists, and physical therapists. It is my belief that therapy will not be effective if there are significant imbalances in other areas of one’s life, the most basic of which are diet, sleep, and exercise. In my opinion, one of the limitations of modern medicine is the extent to which people specialize. It inevitably leads to treating symptoms and component parts versus treating the person as a whole. The mind and the body are inextricably bound. I keep this in mind during all of my sessions. David Younger, PhD, CGP, PC is a New York state-licensed psychologist. In addition to having completed a doctorate in psychology from the University of London, a master's degree in psychology in New York University, as well as a master's degree in child psychology from the Anna Freud Centre in London, Dr. Younger is a certified group psychotherapist (Eastern Group Psychotherapy Society in New York) and an educated couple (Tavistock Centre for Couple Relationships in London).

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.
