I have had several readings with Nikole. She is consistent, professional, amazingly accurate. Her manner is very gentle. She never asks leading questions nor does she probe for information. The 5 other people I know that she has done readings for had the exact same wonderful experience. She cleared both my house and 2 others of friends with hugely successful results. The difference was immediate. Nikole has also done Reiki healing for me while channeling. It was incredible. I had an emotional shift that brought so much clarity. Nikole is the most gifted person I've ever dealt with. I highly recommend her. You will be grateful for your interaction with her.

Just started with Shannon and already I'm empowered to do the exercises she's given me. Shannon opened my eyes to a lot of things regarding social anxiety. I know it's all in my head and with guidance from Shannon, I look forward to creating a new behaviour that will further my life and career goals.

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!

Growth thru Change saved me son's life. He has been struggling throughout high school with depression, anxiety and suicidal thoughts. My son joined their teen group which he attends weekly. Group has had the largest impact on his mental health. He is excited each week to see the group members he has grown so close to. In addition he sees Dave Piltz for individual counseling and monthly family sessions. Growth thru Change got us back on track as a family. My son has drastically improved. I am so grateful to have found them.

I'm writing to share the experience of my husband and daughter-in-law, who had great success with smoking cessation hypnotherapy - one session with Dr. John Hudome, and they both quit smoking! The amazing thing is that neither of them really had a strong desire to quit.

    At first I was skeptical about hypnosis, but Jess quickly changed my mind. She immediately put me at ease. I wanted to work on ways to relax and deal with my anxiety. Jess was very professional throughout the entire experience. Highly Recommended!

    I have social anxiety and difficulty in social situations still, but everything has been much better since I got into sessions. I met Cordeney because of a school friend. She's helped me with the refusing to go out or be around others unless totally necessary. She still helps if I call out of the blue (I've been out of a regular session rotation for almost a year now, after going for two). She's nice, and talks me through things. Sessions were the same. I didn't feel like I was being doctored on, and I didn't feel worse after our sessions like in years before. She came to my house the first five times then we'd meet in the community. That helped me too, because no one knew I was in a session when we'd do them outside, we just looked like two women at the mall or Wal-Mart or shake shack. I never worked with the grief or adolescent therapist, just Cordeney, so I can't speak the others, but is feel comfortable going back to regular sessions of things got bad. I did once a month at first, then every two weeks, then back to monthly before the end.

    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.
