Karen was an absolute dream to work with! From our very first telephone call, it was extremely obvious Karen truly enjoys what she does. My husband (!) and I really wanted a ceremony that reflected us as a couple. Karen provided us each with a Love Story Questionnaire to fill out separately from one another and then incorporated our responses into her ceremony address. She put so much time and care into our personalized ceremony, which I have received so many compliments on! She even provided a folder to us after the ceremony that included our Love Story Questionnaires to read, a copy of her personalized ceremony address, and copies of the wedding vows we wrote for each other, in addition to our marriage record. I could not have asked for anything more from Karen, because she far exceeded my wildest dreams! Besides the quality Karen offers her couples, her service fees were the absolute lowest around! My husband and I are not local to the area where we got married, so it was tricky finding an officiant that we connected with and could afford. Weddings are extremely expensive, and after some unexpected family hardships, money was tighter than we had originally planned. I had received multiple quotes that made me want to cry (and these officiants offered much, much less service than Karen offers for much, much more cost than Karen charges). When I came across Karen, I felt like I could breathe again because she wasn't trying to take advantage of us like many of the officiants I had previously been in contact with. I truly appreciate her integrity to not overcharge in an industry that triples the asking price at the mention of the word, "wedding". Karen welcomed my mother, my husband, and myself into her home and broke down every single detail of the wedding rehearsal, which she attended and participated in, and the actual ceremony. She provided her guidance and advice throughout the entire year, so while we may have hired her for what seems like an hour's worth of time, Karen put so much more into making our special day unremarkable! I cannot say it enough, Karen is amazing! She would make a great addition to your special day. Thank you beyond words. Karen!

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

To Whom it May Concern: It is with absolute confidence that I submit this letter of recommendation for wedding officiant Pat Schwartz. Pat was our officiant this past Autumn for our wedding and she was more than accommodating, she was fantastic! I first reached out to Pat only a few months before the wedding date, but she made me feel comfortable that we had plenty of time to work out what we’d like for our wedding ceremony. Pat responded to my first email within a timely manner and she set up a phone call to get to know us better as a couple within a week. She is so easy to talk to, I still remember that phone conversation and her excellent questions that she asked us as a couple. She has a sense of humor and a kind demeanor that makes having a conversation with her a breeze. Within the next weeks we sent a few emails back and forth and she was always readily available for a phone conversation. When it came time for the wedding day she was professionally dressed, smiling, and ready to marry us in front of our closest friends and family. She truly made our special moment memorable. After the wedding Pat was quick to update us on the process of our marriage license. She quickly mailed in the necessary paperwork and even sent us a copy of our vows. Her attention to detail and trustworthiness made the entire process smooth. I highly recommend Pat as a wedding officiant! Sincerely, Amanda and Matt Twombly Bethlehem, Pa.

My husband and I had our first skype communication with Jen this morning. We explained that we are hoping to improve our communication skills and desire better conflict resolution skills. She was already very helpful in getting both of us to open up more and identify how differently we view various issues that arise within our marriage. I am very excited to work with Jen and love the option of in-home visits, which is ideal for our schedules. She emphasized her role as a coach rather than a therapist, which made my husband feel a lot more at ease. I am optimistic about having Jen assist us in strengthening our bond and being a happier couple over all.

    Valana helped me with my rehab when I got my hip replaced. The Reiki healing really helped me to heal faster than I ever could have expected. She was very professional and always on time. 5D Awareness is a great place with a courteous, professional staff. I intend to use more of their services in the future.

        About

        I am the director of the Center of Relationship Enhancement and of Ginsberg Associates (a child, adolescent, marriage and family clinical practice). I specialize in relationships. I feel that the problems and satisfaction we experience arise in the context of our valuable relationships, specifically our families and partners. Working hand in hand in these critical relationships is the key to the best outcomes. My work is assisting you with the valuable people in your life acquire an enhanced life quality. I'm an applied developmental psychologist, which signifies that instead of being diagnostic, I understand problems in the light of a person's development, the family’s development, the stage of life families and individuals are in, as well as how to address these problems in their current context. I realize that these problems are driven emotionally by resistant-habitual patterns and believe that improving emotional flexibility and openness leads to maintaining long-term change. If we do this within the context of our important relationships, I integrate emotion focused, cognitive-behavioral, relationship systems and person-centered principles in my work with adolescents, children, families and couples. I have trained parents and professionals in filial therapy and relationship enhancement therapies for more than 35 years.

        Q & A

        Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

        What is a life coach?

        A professional, accredited life coach works with people to help them make important changes in their life, either growing in their profession or changing gears in their personal lives. They help clients turn their dreams or wishes into realistic, attainable goals. They guide people through the process of making life changes by helping them evaluate the steps they must take to reach a particular goal, then help them decide how — and whether — to take those steps in the most efficient, effective and rewarding way possible. A life coach acts as a motivator, strategist and accountability partner. Unlike a therapist, a life coach doesn’t help solve problems from your past — they’re focused on helping you move forward with new ways of acting and thinking that will help you reach your goals. Some people specialize in particular types of life coaching, including life balancing coaches, small business coaches, executive coaches and personal finance coaches. Some meet clients in person, while others hold consultations over the phone.

        Regardless of which type of life coach you’re interested in, make sure the person holds an International Coach Federation (ICF) credential. There are three tiers of credentials: Associate, Professional and Master, which require coaching experience ranging from 100 hours to 2,500 hours.

        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 does a life coach cost?

        A life coach helps clients set and reach professional and personal goals, develop positive habits, and deal with stress. Some people meet with a life coach once or twice, while others form an ongoing professional relationship, meeting regularly in person or on the phone. The average national cost to meet with a life coach ranges from $80 to $130 an hour. Some coaches offer per-session pricing, especially for one-time meetings; expect to pay an average of $100-$125. People who want to work with a coach over a period of time to explore life transitions, career growth or lifestyle changes may be able to get discounted pricing in a package. For example, three 60-minute sessions cost an average of $300, four 60-minute sessions cost an average of $350, and four 60- to 90-minute sessions plus unlimited contact between sessions cost an average of $400. Some specific types of coaching, such as relationship or marriage coaching, cost more than standard life coaching. For instance, three 60-minute relationship coaching sessions cost an average of $500, four 60-minute sessions cost an average of $550, and six 60- to 90-minute sessions cost an average of $650 when purchased as a package. Training and experience can also affect the cost of hiring a life coach. An Associate Certified Coach, who holds a certification that requires only 60 hours of training and 100 hours of coaching experience, will charge less than a Master Certified Coach, who typically has at least 200 hours of training and 2,500 hours of coaching experience.   

        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.
