Pastor John Peters is a longtime friend who presided over my wedding back in 2010. John also is an associate pastor at our church. He is the reason we decided to become members here. John is a great preacher with a huge heart. He also takes youths on mission trips and is always there for me if I need advice or counseling. I would highly recommend John to preside over your wedding or any other function. Harve

Pastor Rod counseled me on an individual basis and also counseled my husband and me together when our marriage was basically over. He bibically put us on the path to a whole new beginning. This was after we had counseling through a regular counseling agency and zero biblical backing for a few months with that previous counseling. His guidance, honesty, sincerity and caring led my husband to salvation and baptisim. That was 3 years ago this November and our marriage of nearly 35 years was saved with Pastor Rods guidance. What seemed impossible for reconcilation of a very broken marriage is now a new marriage with our priorities straight. Pastor Rod is amazing and has a way of guidance that no one could ever have matched.

I highly recommend Shera as a counselor to anyone regardless of the need! She is skilled in different techniques and areas which allows for her to be a versatile counselor. She tailors each session to fit your need at that time rather than repetitive work. Shera is very approachable in sessions and allows you feel at ease. Her calm tone and friendly demeanor will allow for sessions to become natural rather than feel like work. She is easily accessible and great at scheduling. Shera is a wonderful person and a great therapist! I am very grateful for all her help!!

When my husband and I decided to go to marriage counseling, we felt that it was already too late. Within two months, Bill has helped us to remember why we care for one another and provided us with tips that make living with each other not only bearable again, but almost enjoyable. He has worked wonders in our marriage in just two months. I would highly recommend him to anyone seeking help with any relationship issues.

About

I offer therapy, holistic counseling, and psychotherapy counseling in Baltimore, MD. I collaborate with a variety of really qualified individuals around Baltimore. A lot of them have expert jobs. Others are students. In spite of excellence, anxiety, self-worth or depression concerns make them question themselves. The individuals I see are frequently grief-stricken with all of the unexpected; they have had a great deal of terrible occasions take place, and among the first times in their life, they have no idea just what to do. My clients tend to value all-natural health (mind, physical body, and spirit) and may intend to explore alternative recovery as well as mainstream methods. They wish to feel comfortable in managing to introduce spiritual subjects into counseling when they want.

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.
