Verified review

Kathryn Armstrong has been counseling all three of us in our family and we highly recommend her. Kathryn is a Christian and her faith defines who she is as a person. She has been trained to know how to use her faith in assisting people and if it is requested by the client, she is willing and capable of using matters of Christian faith to assist clients. However, she does not use her faith in sessions where the client has not requested that it be a part of the therapy. She is highly trained as a professional counselor and uses that training in all of her sessions, with faith-based clients and with those who prefer that faith not be a part of their counseling. She has been very helpful to our family in the over two years that we have been seen by her. My husband and I prefer faith-based counseling so she will include that with us; however our adolescent daughter does not want that to be a part so she does not use that with her. We have all made significant progress as a result of our time with Kathryn. Our teenage daughter had some rather serious issues and Kathryn has been able to effectively address them and I am happy to say that our daughter is doing much better now! The initial problem is over and we see much growth in our daughter. Kathryn sees my husband and myself at times and has been able to point out difficulties that directly affect our daughter and our family dynamics. We are extremely grateful to have been referred to Kathryn and would highly recommend her counseling to others as well. Lynn, A satisfied Client.

My husband and I have benefited greatly from couples therapy with Janeff Counseling. Dean has a calm, grounded, trusting presence that has insured both of us feel equal and validated while getting into our deeper issues of conflict that had not been previously resolvable. As a result of this counseling, we are now able to manage more healthily as issues arise, listen to each other more thoroughly, limit reactivity, and ultimately relate in a more satisfying way. Dean has been instrumental in opening our communication, breaking down the barriers of hurtful judgments, and bringing our relationship to a new, more vibrant level.

Christina C.
Verified review

Our family originally engaged Sheila to support my son’s ADD issues and help him create strategies to deal with his struggles in school (in particular we explored Biofeedback Therapy). This went well but then my husband’s sudden decision to leave our family left all of us shocked and spinning. Sheila started seeing both children to help them deal with the trauma of divorce and all the intricacies of the situation. While her focus has been the children, she has been instrumental in helping me be the mother my children have needed through this time. She gives me the space to make mistakes and kindly brings me back to awareness of what the children need, want, and feel. She has helped all three of us grieve and cope and move on to an incredibly fulfilling life while still holding all of us accountable for our choices. While Sheila is definitely a strong advocate for the children and their mental and psychological health, she realizes that the parents play a huge role in that and so works with everyone to meet the children’s needs for safety, love, and strong boundaries. I would strongly recommend Sheila to anyone needing support and guidance dealing with the challenges associated with being part of a family as either a child or parent.

Dr. Parsons is a wonderful therapist. She played a big role in helping me sort out some challenges in my life I was going through and I can't thank her enough. I especially liked the CBT techniques she shared with me because they are ideas and exercises you can practice right away to see immediate changes, rather than going through months and months of therapy and feeling like you aren't making progress. I only saw her for about 5 sessions and feel like what I have gained from these sessions will last me a lifetime. I highly recommend her.

Putting aside cumbersome false modesty. I do not believe there is a more skillful therapist in our corner of the arena. Oh, I could tell you of a couple who do not measure up, but that is no longer a darkness I delight in. I suffered myself many years of addiction and isolation. Lost in a self-feeding constant woe of a reality. Reinforced by addiction and deafened by guilt I could not feel the love of those who truly cared for me. You can’t break out of a box you don’t know you’re in. Paige waited and talked outside the corners until I could figure my way out. Of course... now all I SEE are boxes, but that’s a whole other thing. If it were not for my move I would still be seeking the professional services of Paige. I do not expect this review to compel you to see her, but I hope it does. Modesty came back.

Megan and Brave, with the Alchemy of We, bring something truly unique to a space that has largely been dominated by traditional couples' therapy. They are some of the most perceptive and mindful professionals in this field, and pick up on subtleties in communication between couples they're working with. On top of that, they are a couple themselves and have clearly done a lot of work together. This makes working with them feel safe, relatable, and authentic, as they can relate their own stories and exemplify the behaviors the tools they're teaching. Whether you're looking to deepen with your romantic partner, with your platonic connections, or just with yourself, I imagine Megan and Brave have the insight and tools that can help you on your path.

Im also experienced in helping couples and individuals achieve the type of relationship they've always wanted. I am happy to work with all who want to improve their quality of life and foster fulfilling relationships. I am an advocate of sex health and maintain a positive attitude towards sexuality.

Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

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.

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.

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.

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.
