All the months of planning my son’s Bar Mitzvah, the venue, the food, the music, on and on it went and at the end of the day the one thing people kept saying was “I love your Rabbi”! Our situation was a little unique as we wanted an abbreviated ceremony and struggled to find a Rabbi that would accommodate this request. I assured my wife I would find someone but after making several calls I was beginning to doubt that I could fulfill such a promise that was until I called Rabbi Joe. After two minutes on the phone and hearing his calm demeanor I knew I had struck gold. We quickly agreed on the specifics but I told him he would have to speak with my wife so we got off the phone and I asked my wife to call him, fifteen minutes later she called me back and said “He is perfect”! Rabbi Joe came to our house about a month before the event and met with us and my son and he was very open to modifying the ceremony to fit our family. On the day of the event my in-laws were 30 minutes late and I asked the Rabbi if he could speed up the ceremony due to the late start. Not only was he able to do that, I really don’t think he left anything out. Rabbi Joe was sincere, engaging and amusing and really created a perfect ceremony for us. We can whole heartedly recommend Rabbi Joe for whatever event you may be planning and already intend to have him for my daughter’s event in a few years. Phil & Jodi S

Therapy with Alison worked for us. It took awhile. There were a few months when nothing seemed to be changing. My wife and I were having the same fights, stuck the same way. I wanted to quit, but my wife insisted and I'm glad she did. Things started to click. The same things Alison had been pointing out to us suddenly made sense at a different level. Maybe we just needed to hear it over and over, or maybe the sessions we were doing got us ready, but suddenly we were able to change. Alison had been assigning us homework, but we rarely did it. When we started doing the homework, our marriage got better faster. But Alison never judged us when we didn't do it. She was always patient. She also saw both sides and helped us look at things instead of blaming one person, as a "dance" we get stuck in.

I've seen Maggie twice now for Reiki and both have been really amazing experiences. I had never experienced Reiki before and wasn't sure what to expect or what it was, really, but Maggie made me feel really comfortable and safe. It was really relaxing but also really intense in a good way - I was surprised by how emotionally powerful the experience was. I can't explain it, but I walked away from both of my appointments feeling like I had just gone to therapy - like, a really good and revelatory session - even though I hadn't said a word, and after both sessions I felt more centered and grounded than I had been in a long time. I don't quite understand what she did, but Maggie is clearly incredibly talented and I will definitely be going back to her!

    Liz did a wonderful job of identifying my son's challenges and offered fun and engaging exercises to help him overcome them. My son had his appointments with Liz after a long day of school, when his energy and focus level were nearly always waning. But Liz could alway get my son to perk up and get him interested in his speech therapy. She's a warm, patient and committed therapist who goes out of her way to meet a child's needs.

      In the middle of my first therapy session with Pastor Tony I knew that I made the right choice. He seemed to understand my struggles completely. In fact, he finished a couple of my sentences. I knew right then and there that besides book knowledge, of which he has plenty, he also has heart knowledge. What I mean is, he counsels from the mind as well as the heart. You won't regret it if you choose him to be your therapist. When I reflect on my mental and emotional growth since I have been having sessions with him it fills me with pride that I have grown so much. The same thing will happen to you. Your days won't be so cloudy anymore. It will take work on his part as well as yours, but Pastor Tony will bring you into the sunshine.

      Husband and I were going through some work related stress coupled with the dynamics of a new insta-family. Lines became blurry, and we became totally fixated on the business, as well as other challenges occurring within the family unit. We knew we had to make some changes and super quick! I let was then that I discovered Amy and several visits later, we were back on track and remembering why we even married in the first place! We simply lost sight of the basics. She doesn't beat around the bush in letting you know! Will help you get the resolve you're searching for by setting you back on your path and merely guiding you along the way. Gave us the tools we needed to be "solid" and as a result, are able to love one another again. We're very grateful for her help, had it not been for her, this review might have had an alternate ending!

      Therapeutic massage has been used in many cultures around the world throughout the ages to relieve both stress and physical pain. Stress can inspire us to do our best, but when we overload our nervous system for too long, our ability to respond with grace and balance may be compromised. Treating yourself to a massage can be one of the most pleasurable ways to deal with the overload of modern life. “All of our surgery patients are offered the treatment…I call it “service with a smile…and it’s mandatory weekly prescription I give myself” says Mehmet C. OZ, M.D. director of the Cardiovascular Institute a New York Presbyterian Hospital Columbia Medical center and a member of the board at LLuminari, a health education company. All sessions begin with a conversation so that you and your therapist can tailor your massage to suit your needs. Rejuvenate with a relaxation session or work on specific areas of your body such as neck and shoulders or low back. Either way you will feel renewed, relaxed and peaceful. Move2wellness is proud to say that all our therapist are licensed and clinically trained.

      Many client's feel music therapy works because it is a creative arts therapy and music is a way we can express ourselves unlike anything else. There have been many studies to show that music helps reach children with autism when words cannot and the music can actually help bring the words out through lyrics of the songs, which can help in speech and language goals.

      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.

      Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
