Linda worked with me when I felt stuck at a dead-end job that lacked any personal fulfillment. She was able to see potential in me and we worked together to identify my strengths and areas where I excelled. Under her guidance, I decided to continue my education and finish the degree I had started several years prior. I now work at a job I love and feel a great sense of satisfaction and personal accomplishment. I can honestly say I would not have attained this career achievement without her. I would highly recommend her coaching services to anyone who feels they are stuck in a rut or are unsure of the next steps to take in a career path or even on a personal journey. Linda has a brilliant way of lending perspective and drawing out the best in people. That is what she did for me and I will always be grateful for her help.

I was looking for a marriage counselor for a few days and wasn't having any luck. I kept looking and found Thumbtack Friday morning. I really wanted to find a counselor so my husband and I could start right away. I put in the information and didn't think I'd get any responses right away. Well, I got three and the third one down was Pastor Mark Inscoe. I looked at his response first and told my husband about him. We both agreed to go through him because we thought he'd be the best fit for us. So I called him and left a message and he called back quickly. We set up our first session with him for the next day and it went great! Mark is a great listener and offered constructive ideas to help us with not only our marriage but our debt as well. He started us on the right path to work on our marriage and how to get out of debt. He has very comprehensive debt elimination plans as well as solid advice and strategies to improve our marriage! We have a ways to go and will continue to see him for as long as we can! We feel that with Mark's help our marriage will get stronger and better. We feel very comfortable with him as our counselor! He's a great guy that's very knowledgeable about relationships and how to make them stronger. We highly recommended him if you're having marital issues!

Talking with Sheri was my first experience in this realm. She was very helpful, comforting, and offered a lot of solid wisdom. It was very easy to talk with her and she helped me break down some of the things that were going on in my life, as well as offer sage advice on how to move forward. The atmosphere and energy that Sheri exudes is remarkable, and made everything so easy, soothing, and comfortable.

    Rev. Ellington was such a pleasure to work with. He met all of our needs plus some. We ended up choosing him over another minister and we are so happy we changed. He was considerate of our needs and wants and was very involved in how we wanted things done. Thanks Rev. Ellington for such a beautiful service.

        Charles is absolutely amazing! He is extremely knowledgeable in every areas of our lives and with his work, which he is totally dedicated to. He is truly interested in you as a person. He is generous, understanding, compassionate with ourselves as a person, our needs, our struggles, our victory's. He is very easy to talk to and you find yourself to be at ease to be yourself from the beginning. His work is outstanding and quite honestly he has saved my life. He achieves results in an remarkable amount of short time. My only regret is I wish I had met him early in my life, with his help I could have stayed connected with my path of self awareness I had found years ago but seem to have strayed from. I could have saved myself from painful detours that wasted the precious time of life. I consider myself blessed that our paths crossed and I am looking forward and hoping there are many more years of my life that I will be my best at due to his dedication and support to keep growing and be the best person I can be. He is genuine and is one of the lucky ones that loves what he does, put his heart into his work and when that occurs the results are nothing less than perfect. If only every professional did that, the world would be a much better place.

        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.
