I am fairly experienced with therapy, and sometimes it takes a bit of "shopping around" before you find a good fit. Not so with TJ; my wife and I felt so lucky to find him on our first try for couples counseling! We scheduled with TJ when we were having more frequent fights, and we were looking for a a queer friendly counselor. He was extremely professional and kind, and made us feel comfortable and able to open up. He encouraged us to look deeply at and work through some of the loops we can get stuck on as a couple. His counseling sessions and reading suggestions have strengthened our bond, and we will always keep him in mind should we ever need another tune up! ;) --M + K

I suffered from chronic and pervasive anxiety and depression, but after just 6 sessions with Dennis, it was gone! It has been more than 9 months and I am still amazed at how well it worked. I had spent years in and out of therapy with very little results and I was skeptical, but it did and it was not hard at all. I am also now happily in a relationship that is healthy and loving. I owe it all to Dennis!

What I appreciate about Anya is her commitment to authenticity, being present for hard things, and staying connected with herself while assisting others in their healing. I have experienced my own healing while participating in several of her counseling modalities, from group work, sand tray therapy, art thearpy, and personal talk therapy. She is resourceful, reliable, and compassionate. Warmly, Terri

    My husband and I went to counseling after experiencing a miscarriage and we were amazed by the difference it made in our relationship. Mitzie always found a way to make the both of us feel heard and we really became stronger as a couple. I'm thinking about going back to see her on my own now that we finished couple's therapy.

    About

    In life, we're surrounded by opinions, mostly subjective and filled with bias. There's something refreshing and enlightening about an objective, nonjudgmental listening ear, especially in situations where our words and decisions carry great weight. In life, there are clinicians, therapists, and other professionals who focus on diagnoses. Because of this, one of the most powerful and helpful resources in life are true friends because friends listen, give objective opinions, and sometimes tell you the hard stuff you do not want to hear even though you need to hear it--but only when given permission, and I think that's called tough love. For the past five years, I've been searching for a way to give back to others. I have also found that true friendships are hard to come by. With social media and our changing society, friends are even rarer than ever. I'm here to help people solve their own problems and find their own solutions through compassion, seeing the best in others, showing respect, and ultimately, leading lives filled with balance, love and constant growth. If you or a loved one is looking for a friend, a listening ear who gives advice and opinion (in an honest yet respectful way) only when asked, shoot me a note. I'd love to hear from you.

    About

    An indigenous sound healer, Rev. Denise Hylton has completed training in Acutonics Sound Healing and the Kita Sound Healing systems, which utilize indigenous sound-healing tools to assist individuals with personal transformation. Vibrational sound therapy is a powerful, deeply transformational, and non-invasive healing treatment that incorporates sound and vibration to re-harmonize and attune the human energy field to achieve optimal health, actualization, and wholeness. Using harmonically attuned Tibetan singing bowls, hand chimes, bells, and calibrated tuning forks, sound is applied to acupuncture, acupressure, and trigger points to access the body’s meridian and musculature skeletal system. Sound healing has profound results in treating chronic and debilitating conditions, as well as in helping to balance emotional and physical well-being. She is an intuitive practitioner of the Integrated Awareness Technique, a Reiki master, and certified in acutonics, hypnotherapy, past life regression, and LaStone Therapy. Her skills in integrative therapy, psycho-spiritual counseling, and personal development have afforded her the opportunity to serve diverse communities. My goal is to enable everyone to experience the benefits of sound healing. I have provided sound services and workshops at several health and wellness centers, including the American Cancer Society and YMCA. I specialize in working with individuals with cancer, emotional issues, chronic diseases, autism, and special populations.

    About

    It takes courage to seek therapy. This is one of the main reasons that so many people go through life, suffering from psychological pain. A pain that is as real and exhausting as a physical wound. Opening up to a stranger, trusting someone with your deepest thoughts and emotions can be frightening. My goal as a therapist is to create a safe space that honors this brave and difficult decision and provides individuals with a place where they feel supported and encouraged to discuss any and all hopes, dreams, concerns and struggles. I believe that people are not defined by any one aspect of their lives.We are all complicated, with problems & strengths, histories & futures, so I believe in treating everyone as a whole person. I am interested in integrating physical wellness into emotional wellness. No topics are off limits. I respect my clients, I take a collaborative approach. This means that my clients and I work together to identify their unique goals and to maintain open communication about how the process is affecting their day-to-day life.

    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.
