I knew I had come to a crossroads in my personal and professional life. I desperately needed counseling to take me to the next level! It was important for me to find a counselor that would not just listen and regurgitate my thoughts. What I found in Charles Eduardos' sessions were challenging, rewarding, learning experiences. His sessions were amazing and far exceeded my expectations. He listened and provided me useful, honest feedback that was relative to my personal and professional life. The resources and tools he provided me with helped move me to the next level I had been desperately trying to reach for several years. The Victorious Living System has given me the victorious life I have always known I could live. The power of the system has changed my life!! Do not wait another minute to have the life you deserve.

Pastor Dan was excellent. From the premarital counseling to the rehearsal, he made sure we were prepared. He made the ceremony short yet personal.

Brent was a professional and honest pastor who took time to meet with my future husband and me before our ceremony for premarital counseling, even though we lived out of state.

Looking for assessment or evaluation services? Short term strategic interventions? Help with decision making? Call for a conversation about how I can help you. I have been in private practice since 1979 and have offered services in many areas including family, domestic violence, marital discord, life decisions, grief, as well as transitioning through various life stages. My particular specialty is sex offender programming/therapy for all types of CSC offenses including internet and pornography addictions. My current focus is to provide psychological assessments and evaluations specific to a client's needs. Most frequently clients are referred by the court for services such as driver's license restoration, risk assessment for sex offenses including computer/internet offenses, and child custody evaluations in conjunction with a colleague specializing in family. Pricing is competitive but insurance does not cover any of the services currently offered.

I am a counselor who approaches therapy holistically -- integrating mind, body, and spirit. This approach is grounded in the belief that all people have an innate dignity and desire to seek value and meaning in life. I work with people to develop an awareness of their personal value and strengths and to use them to live more fulfilling and peace-filled lives. As part of the therapeutic process and movement toward positive change, I strive to be fully present during sessions and a companion on the journey. In that space, I seek to create an environment where people can engage in honest self-reflection, a process that guides decisions and helps the client toward self-healing. After receiving my Bachelor of Arts in Spanish and Bachelor of Science in community health from Ohio University, I went on to work for over 10 years in the social work field. I continued my education at Northern Arizona University and graduated with my master's in community counseling in 2009. I am a professional clinical counselor and National Board certified counselor who is bilingual in Spanish.

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.
