Me and my wife did marriage counseling with Rob and Robin Atkins and I couldn't imagine doing it with anybody else. They made it a very relaxing and inviting atmosphere for the both of us and we looked forward to our sessions with them. Highly recommend them!

    I have been working with Drew Kiel for 6 months. He's helped me achieve both nutrition & fitness goals. When I began with Drew I had shoulder pain & some restrictions with my workout. He gave me exercises to work through the problem & I'm pain free now! I highly recommend working with Drew no matter what your age or fitness goals are! He brings personal experience as a strength & conditioning coach as well as knowledge as a physical therapist.

    Eva is highly intuitive and gifted at what she does. She has an uncanny ability to find problem spots that all my other therapists miss, and she'll give those areas the necessary attention they need. Some people choose massage therapy and other healing modalities simply as their profession, but for Eva this artform is an integral part of who she is, and it translates into the healing work she performs. Highly recommended.

    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!

    Jean is kind hearted, caring, and compassionate. She has a genuine love for people and helping others. My favorite conversations with Jean were in my darkest hours when my marriage was failing and I didn't know where to turn. Give her a chance. You have nothing to lose but so much to gain!

    I was skeptical at first about counseling (in general) and wondered what Chris O'Rear could really do to help my wife and me with our marriage. After several sessions, though, I knew we had made a great choice. Chris has a patient, disarming, gently probing style that encouraged us to talk about feelings and understand each other better. Much to my wife's delight, he doesn't set "homework", which allowed us to wrestle with topics at our own pace, and discover and learn in an un-forced way. I couldn't be happier with what we have been able to achieve, with Chris's help, to make our marriage stronger.

    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.

      Sara met with me weekly for about 3 months to help me achieve my personal goals of emotional understanding and control. She worked with me on both short- and long-term solutions to help me actively change my behaviors. She provided multiple options and we tried a few different options so that we found the best management practices for me. She is incredibly patient and supportive, and I never once felt judged while in her presence. She consistently gave honest feedback but never pressured me to take actions I was uncomfortable with. She provided a wonderful environment and I would highly recommend using her as a therapist!

        Mary is the best! At my first meeting with Mary I was walking like the Mummy (dragging my right foot) with acute pain from a hip injury a couple of years earlier. She gently made an assessment and we did several modified yoga postures and stretches. I went home with a list of Egoscue stretches and movements. She also initiated my to the 8 limbs of yoga and we meditated. That was about 9 months ago. While I admit I am not the "poster Child" yoga student. my life has changed. Physically, I now have much greater range-of-motion and flexibility. My acute pain is gone and the times I overdo an activity and my hip screams at me, I know which modified yoga postures give me relief. I am so grateful for my expanding spiritual awareness and new peaceful demeanor. Mary is a true professional, but as a client/student, I look forward to the spiritual benefit as much as the physical relief. Mary goes far beyond to taylor the therapy and make the most out of the personal journey. I cannot imagine a better practitioner or a better experience. -Peggy

          Marriage counseling....My wife and I hit a pretty rough patch and Brandon was able to walk us through it. We were not getting all! Brandon has such a gift... He was able to help us see the lies we were believing about each other. We both felt like he wasn't siding with anybody but rather helping both of us mine through the junk. Our marriage is definitely back on track and we are back to having fun together. We were definitely at the point most marriages would throw in the towel or continue to be miserable in their marriage. Thankful for Brandon!

          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.
