Jeff seemed to be like a mirror in the best way possible. Revealing what the core of my issues stem from. Fear and Shame, in my case. This insight from just one session alone has already been a huge step forward. At times, it was uncomfortable. But that is just the nature of talk therapy and healing. It can be a painful process but so worth it and necessary for growth. Highly recommend.

My fiancé and I were having an increasing series of seemingly unsolvable fights, so we decided to get some professional help with our communication. Finding Alice and making an appointment with her was very fast and easy via thumbtack. She was able to meet with us right away and she has very convenient nights and weekends availability. I am delighted to report that we after we met with her, we were able to resolve years worth of issues, and “graduate” couples therapy after only two sessions! Of course this may not happen to everyone, and I’m not promising that you will have the same results, but if you and your partner both make 100% effort and apply Alice’s kind guidance, you will hopefully succeed too, together. We couldn’t be happier, and it’s all thanks to Alice.

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.

      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.

      About

      Over 20 years of experience supporting positive growth and change in the lives of my clients. Therapy is most helpful when it includes three elements - a highly competent and ethical therapist, a motivated client, and a collaborative and trusting relationship. The latter is essential because it creates the safe and supportive context which fosters enduring growth and change. My approach is integrative, embracing all aspects of the person, and always focused on the unique needs and hopes of my client.

      About

      Doug DeJoe believes in keeping his clients awake and fully aware. Thus, he is engaging, funny, and demonstrative and makes total use of the room when teaching. He was a high school English teacher in New York, and the classroom was alive and electric. "I teach a difficult language, and I want the student to be fully aware so that he/she can comprehend vocabulary, parts of speech, sentence structure, literary terms, clear pronunciation, and how the language works." As a mental health therapist, DeJoe uses a client-centered approach and tackles adolescent, family, and adult therapy. He is a master-level therapist and is also trained in Moral Reconation Therapy (MRT), which uses a cognitive-behavioral approach and deals with alcohol and substance abusers. DeJoe believes in a compassionate style which employs rational-logical consequences. "I believe in putting the ball in the client's court and being honest and up-front with them. I view my job as holding the mirror up to the client's behaviors. It is often painful and difficult, but the client must see the reality and truth about who they are and where they're at. Oftentimes, they are stuck at a certain stage in their life and need the therapist to show them where and why they are stuck. Once a clear understanding is achieved, the therapist and client work together to get them unstuck." DeJoe has been a teacher since 1987 and became a master's level mental health therapist in 1991.

      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.
