My Wife and I have had a wonderful experience with Scott. We were going through a rough patch, and decided for the first time that we should seek outside help. It was one of the best decisions we could have made. As it was our first time in therapy we were both nervous going in, and didn't really know what to expect. Scott quickly eased our nerves, and we were able to make progress right away. His adaptive methodology has suited as well. He has a keen focus our needs, and has been able to adjust on the fly to address whatever it is we're going through in the moment. Even though we're back on a great trajectory, we still look forward to continuing our sessions with Scott. We always leave feeling better, and having learned something to apply to our relationship. We highly recommend him to anyone looking to improve their relationship!

I came to Cheryl for child abandonment and other issues relating to my early childhood. I have never had any type of therapy before, and with Cheryl’s calm presence, I immediately felt very comfortable. She carefully listened to what I was experiencing, and soon recommended a course of treatment which included visualizations and regression therapy. Cheryl helped me immensely with all my childhood issues I am now the happiest I have ever been. She is highly trained and very knowledgeable in her field, and I highly recommend her!

Terry is a phenomenally gifted therapist who guided me through the darkest point in my life. Intuitive, caring, authentic and wise beyond words, she held a strong, safe container for me to fall apart during and after my divorce and put myself and my family back together. Her deep presence allowed me to trust her as my guide, and I consider her an angelic arrival in my life. My ability to co-parent smoothly with my ex-husband and raise two healthy well adjusted kids is due to the work we did together during our break up and directly after. If you are ready to release your grief and sorrow and step into a full, juicy, amazing life, Terry will be there with helping hands and open heart.

Dana is one of those rare gems of a therapist; she has her heart fully engaged and has the amazing insight and intuition to be able to help you where you need it most. I've referred at least 5 clients to her-my closest and dearest family and friends- and had incredible feedback. She is very loved! Her intelligence shows in her gentle, caring therapeutic processes. She walks her talk; again I find this to be very rare. I trust her completely and feel 100% at ease sharing anything. She has great empathy and is extremely supportive. I highly recommend her for any situation. You will not be disappointed.

    I have always been a hopeful person, but a little over a year ago I wasn't certain that I would be able to rise above what felt like this unsurmountable pit of post traumatic hell. I felt that I would be swallowed alive and was slowly being absorbed by it. The pain of my past was chasing me into a corner everyday and even though I was now surrounded by those who deeply love and care about me, I felt alone by my experiences, and stark differences in my day to day survival. I knew I needed help, and I knew that even though I was terrified I couldn't do it alone. After scheduling, and rescheduling out of fear, I finally made it to Krystal's office. I didn't know what to expect, but I felt like i was on the verge of breaking and with tears in my eyes I shared why I was there. I never could have anticipated a warmer reception than the welcome I received from Krystal that day, and each day there after. The routine I would come to know and cherish with the work that I would do in and out of our sessions was subtle, and I remember feeling a little better, and a little more at peace in my heart after each time shared. The immense shift and turn around has been an amazing blessing to my life, and I know that I would not have been able to do it with out Krystal. Her authentic and natural ability to create a sacred space for healing to evolve in, is genuine in every sense of the word. And unlike many other Therapists I'd seen in the past, I know with out a shadow of a doubt that this, is Krystal's calling. I enjoy Be Kind Counseling because with out it I would never have come to deeply understand that I really am the author of my life, and that I have the ability to write and rewrite my story as beautifully and as safely as I see suitable. Krystal's therapy have allowed me to delve into all areas I am passionate about with confidence, and my sessions have given me the focus to work towards my goals. I have re found my voice, and am using it. And to me that is priceless. As my healing journey continues with Krystal and through the help of her sessions; I am grateful to look back and see such significant growth within myself. I look forward to that which I know is lighting the path ahead of me guiding me deeper into my strengths. A kindness I now recognize as necessary to not only allocate towards every one around me ( that I had a pretty great handle on), but kindness that I can allocate towards myself. To sum up my experience. always supportive, always compassionate, always kind That is, Be Kind Counseling

      Krista created my website and clarified and distilled my business and website offerings. I could not do this as I was too close to it to objectively see it. We worked together so that my website was authentically me and marketable. Who knew my quirky amalgam of life and expertise had some gold running through it. She was able to find that. My website became a foundation that my ever-changing offerings grow from. I could not have done this without Krista’s process. Her vast educational background in a variety of disciplines and array of knowledge is a rare find. We also worked well together and laughed a lot!

      I'm committed to the best possible care for my clients. To me this means that I'm focused not only on outcomes but also process - ensuring that clients feel as though they are progressing towards their goals, that they are learning about themselves and their relationships, and that they are gaining and implementing effective tools for life. I want to make sure that what we do together is sustainable, realistic, and achievable. When obstacles appear, I'm not afraid of identifying and tackling them in order to reduce the chances of falling back into old, destructive patterns. Finally, I have a high standard for the work that I do because I recognize that others' lives and relationships are being affected by the counseling process. I love meeting new people, learning about their lives and experiences, and working through issues in order to come up with workable solutions that will help clients feel better about themselves, have better relationships, and be more effective in life. I think that even above that, I really enjoy being able to be present with clients in the midst of their pain, suffering, struggles, difficulties, and challenges so they feel supported (not alone), understood, validated, valued, and known.

      I have lived and worked in the Portland Metro area since 1995 after spending my childhood and undergraduate years on the East Coast. During this time, I have worked in both the private and public sectors, with children, adults and families. I work with clients and families with struggles including; relational difficulties, family conflicts, mood disorders, self-esteem, anxiety and the effects of trauma. I also work often with those who are seeking overall peace, mastery and true meaning in their life. I assist clients with building hope and learning safe ways to cope and function so they can find their own success and truth as individuals, partners and/or family systems. My passion is to help clients feeling stuck to explore and create new solutions when others have not worked. I have worked for many years with children, adults and families who have struggled with complex and long term mental health needs often combined with substance use and abuse and or/trauma. I have long term experience working with families who have come together through foster care or adoption. I also enjoy supporting adolescents/young adults with developing and practicing successful transitions to adulthood and independence. My overall therapeutic approach is based in mindfulness and awareness building techniques. I also integrate a wide variety of other approaches depending on the individual needs of each client. These approaches include; Acceptance and Commitment Therapy techniques, Family Systems Theory, CBT, Attachment Therapy, Narrative Therapy, Collaborative Problem Solving emotionally-focused techniques and trauma-based approaches. In my role, I support clients with identifying the source of struggles, and learning effective ways to manage symptoms and develop their own meaning of success. I support clients in defining and honoring their individual needs, beliefs, values and goals. I aim to provide a space for them to explore what is and is not working and to develop tools that assist them in moving toward a better overall quality of life. I work with clients to provide them a safe space to check in, explore and process life's struggles. Over the years, I have been able to build strong relationships with community mental health providers, state agencies, educational and court systems in Washington, Multnomah and Clackamas Counties. I have worked directly with providers at many levels of care including day treatment, psychiatric residential, and state hospital. My years of experience include working with clients from a wide array of backgrounds including; cultural and sexual minority groups, clients from a variety of religious and economic backgrounds, and clients who have experienced significant trauma.

      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.
