Deborah brings a healthy combination of intelligence and insight to her time with those she serves. Yet it is the strength she has to love those she works with that allows that intelligence and insight to achieve so much resolution and healing. I know Deborah very well, and her education and skills, as well as her spirituality, is highly recommended to anyone in need of a therapist. It is difficult finding a therapist that can work with the entirety of a person. This is what you will find in Deborah Martin. She is capable of hearing you thoroughly, deeply. This is not always something you find in a therapist. She does not come to you with preconceived formulas and answers. She enjoys the joint discovery of each soul’s unique experience of life, and this, more than anything else is why she is such a profoundly good listener. One more thing; Deborah has lived long enough, and has experienced enough of what life has to hold to not be blown away by any need you may wish to trust her with. You will feel safe and well cared for in her company.

I have come to believe that to grow into who we truly want to be and live meaningful, purposeful, joyful lives, most, if not all of us, will need the objective viewpoint, support and accountability from a coach, mentor, therapist; whatever we are comfortable with calling that person. Working with Deborah has been a lifesaver for me at a time in my life when I had reached the height of frustration and almost lost hope of a positive future. She has been that constant source of support and accountability, helping me realize and keeping me focused on my calling, helping me address and overcome foundational lies that have held me back for years in shame and unawareness and helping me reclaim my power to act on managing my life to create meaning and purpose. Through insight from her own life story (I'm not alone; it's not just me!) and her continuous and compassionate support of moving me forward, I see a light at the end of the tunnel and have hope that I am beginning to understand my calling and how to contribute my unique gifts I was meant to share with others. I don't gravitate toward the "guru types"; Deborah's a real, down-to-earth, "takes it all in stride" kinda woman, and wants only the best for those with whom she works. If you're not living the life you envisioned, she can definitely help get you track!

I started working with Chris as someone to talk with about things that I didn't think I could talk with my friends and family. Chris was helpful and challenging during this time. I wanted him to give me the answers but he encouraged me to work through my concerns and come up with a solution or strategy on my own. After many months of talking with Chris, I moved away from Nashville. My life took a major turn for the worse while I was away. Even though I had a new counselor, Chris was willing to talk with me over the phone a number of times. If I came back through Nashville, I often would set up an appointment to talk with him. After having worked through things with him while in Nashville, I needed the continuity of being able to talk things over with him without starting all over. I have moved again since I left Nashville in 2013. Chris was able to refer me to a counselor in my new city. There are still times that I email Chris with problems I am having and he has always been available to answer me back. I have continued to set up appointments with him whenever I am back in Nashville. He has never tried to take the place of my new counselor and has even at times told me I needed to talk more with my counselor about what is going on in my life. I continue to keep in touch with Chris because he has and continues to be a person who truly cares about me and what is going to happen in my life. I miss seeing him and hearing how he responds to my thoughts on issues. I would recommend Chris as a therapist to anyone who is looking for a friend who cares for you, no matter what has happened or is happening in your life. I'll be back to see Chris as I pass through Nashville.

I have worked with multiple therapists over the course of my lifetime and my experience with Lauren has undoubtedly been the most insightful, useful, and thorough therapy. She uses a unique approach with the utmost care and I always felt comfortable in her presence. Lauren always made herself readily available for my needs and I am extremely grateful for my the time I was able to spend with her.

Emily has been wonderful teaching my son the violin. He had never played an instrument and after 2 lessons he already knows 2 songs and how to read some notes. She is very patient and knowledgeable of the violin. We will definitely hire Emily for future lessons. My son loves it when he knows Emily is coming so he can show her what he has praticed!

She was very helpful and insightful into many different issues while she was my therapist. I felt very comfortable with her and could be very open without feeling nervous about talking.

Reb Buxton, Psychotherapist

    Verified review

    Reb Buxton (aka REB) saved my life. He enabled me to find hope and happiness after experiencing debilitating trauma. He is wise, compassionate, patient and truly gifted as a therapist. During the time I spent in intensive therapy with him, I found him to be very responsive and easy to talk to. I strongly recommend REB for anyone considering therapy, and for anyone who thinks they don't know if they really need it or not. I was initially in the latter category, but I am now forever grateful that I called his office, made the appointment and showed up. One of the greatest gifts you can give yourself is the gift of stepping outside of your stressful life and into REB's office for an hour or so where you are free to express yourself in a nonjudgmental space. REB is an excellent listener.

    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.
