I initially contacted John because I wanted counseling for my broken marriage. My husband backed out because he no longer wants to work on the marriage so I decided to go without him. One of the BEST decisions I’ve ever made. I’ve been meeting with John once a week for a little over a month and it has been life changing. When I’m talking with John it’s like talking to a good friend. I feel like I’ve known John for years. John has been there for me if I need to talk at 11pm or 2am if there is a crisis he’s a phone call away. I’ve learned so much about myself through my conversations with John. I would recommend John to anyone looking to save their marriage or just want individual counseling for themselves. I wish my husband had been on board. Unfortunately he’s missing out on a life changing experience!

Denise has been amazing to work with. Her services have been an integral part of the recent successes within my relationships and life balance. She's made the process of counseling, something I had never previously participated in, super easy and enjoyable. Whether you're just getting started with counseling, or you're looking for a new direction in your journey towards increased mindfulness — I'd highly recommend giving Denise a try.

My wife Lindsey and I had the pleasure of working with Art as our pastor throughout our wedding process over 5 months. We had met Art through family friends and immediately hit it off. We knew that Art would be the best fit for marriage counseling and officiating our wedding as he paid tremendous attention to detail. He wanted to know every bit of our "story", any reservations or hesitations about marriage (and our special day), and how we wanted to incorporate our love for God into our ceremony. As we are busy, career-driven professionals, it was wonderful to have a pastor that was up on the times and could easily jump on Skype to have counseling sessions remotely. Art was very flexible and accommodating as far as scheduling counseling sessions, and was able to roll with some of the curveballs thrown on our wedding day (e.g. down pouring in the middle of our ceremony and starting back up again at another location). But most importantly, Art was able to help us better prepare for a lasting marriage with a clear mind, warm soul, and open heart. He helped us ask the difficult questions to one another as we were preparing to be married. We addressed faith, money, family, and even specific details about our wedding day. We loved how easy Art was to talk to and how excited he was to be a part of our day! The personal touch he added to our ceremony, through incorporating our families and what he had learned about us in counseling, allowed us to more clearly see the true meaning of our wedding day: the beautiful act of marriage in front of God and our loving friends and families.

My fiancee and I went to ser Dr. Yarborough for relationship counseling. The first day, we walked in frustrated and left holding hands. We loved his techniques. Hes very open and upfront about himself which made us feel comfortable, never judged. Hes fair, never one sided. We learned as much about him as he did Us. As far as I'm concerned hes a family friend. We've asked him to marry Us. Cant think of a better person. He knows us well, our situation, our attitudes and our minds. He's REAL and that's what i lived most about him. Cookouts..... He and the Mrs. Are invited. So Happy with our choice.

Rabbi Slatkin was calm and sensitive. He provided a neutral and safe place for us to explore what led to my wife's affair a few years ago. He showed us new ways to communicate, and we practiced with him there. That made it easier to keep doing better when we got home. We are connecting more, and I'm starting to feel like I can forgive and move on. Our family is already lighter and healthier. We also really liked the office atmosphere, and how we did the sessions face-to-face. It cut the tension, because it's hard to be angry when you're that close with someone. We never felt like religion was emphasized beyond what made sense for our situation.

I've worked with Lauren more than once. First, she was my coach while I made a major career change from many years in corporate to creative, and then again with her Creative Lightning course. The results: I nearly seamlessly transitioned into my new career as a writer and musician (from sales and marketing) and my first book will be published this fall. I used the course as a way of keeping myself on track while writing the second draft of the book before I pitched it to publishers. It worked! Lauren is real. She does the creative work herself, so she gets it. Not only a personal cheerleader for you, Lauren champions living creatively, too. It's amazing to see ideas that were for many years nagging and faraway dreams become tangible things I am actually working on. Thanks for your seriously amazing support and understanding, Lauren.

I have been seeing Lara for awhile now. She has a great rapport. I started seeing her independently and then we brought in my significant other. It was great that she did not have a bias and was open to talk us as a couple and as individual. She gives you relatable homework assignments that help you examine your life in a new way, but are fun and easy to complete.

    For over 30 years, Frank Trotter has been a minster, friend, mentor and voice of sound reason to my family and I. After doing online marriage counseling (20 years ago--we were both in the military in separate countries), Frank travelled to Vegas to perform a marriage in Red Rock Canyon for my husband and I. His heartfelt, lighthearted and intelligent spontaneity made him a top choice for this purpose. Frank is a person of exceptional character and charisma, and now my young children know and love him for the same!

    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.
