I truly feel that one of the best decisions my fiance and I made together was to go through premarital counseling with Mr. and Mrs. Alexander. They were a blessing to us. They made us comfortable in each session. We were able to open up and talk about serious issues with the confidence that we were being guided by true experienced professionals. My fiance and I left feeling closer than we have ever felt before. We not only grew on a mental level but we also grew spiritually. I strongly recommend the Alexanders for anyone who is seeking premarital or marital counseling. We look forward to doing our follow up in 6 months after we are married and beyond. The Alexanders have become more than counselors, they are family.

Mr. Miller was great! He helped my husband and I in such a way that I could never repay. He was understanding in a way that made us understand each other. He has put hope in our family and has guided us in the direction we needed to be led. And his partner Kandace was also great! I loved speaking with her for the combined session. Such wonderful people and counselors, would recommend to anyone hands down!

He was thorough and understanding. Not only a hypnotist but also a minister and counselor. Best experience I've had with a hypnotherapist.

What a wonderful counselor! Leesa is so insightful and wise, plus she makes you feel right at home. Going to counseling can be sort of intimidating, but Leesa makes you feel instantly comfortable and welcome! She asks all of the right questions and helps you get to the root of the issue quickly. So thankful to have found her!

I've had the opportunity to experience two different types of sessions w/Rev Murphy. I attended one of his galleries and my father game through. He is the only person who has been able to connect with him since his passing and he knew things that no one else could know. He was also able to address a question we all had (that again he couldn't have known about) and it really helped explain a lot of the things that were left undone between my father and myself. Additionally, I've had an intuitive counseling session with him. That is how he approaches his readings. They aren't meant to some magic 8-ball fortune teller readings. Rev. Murphy passes on messages from spirit and helps explain how to apply these lessons to your life in order to achieve whatever it is you desire to manifest whether it is a new relationship, abundance, and new home - etc. My reading with him came at a time when I was stuck. I knew something was holding me back. I assumed it had to be me, but I wasn't sure how to make my way around it and he provided that direction. I'm also afflicted by wounds from my past and he's given me ideas for how I can fill those emotional holes so I can fully love myself.

From the very first session with him, I knew it would be a positive experience, and I was right. Phil has a talent for asking thought provoking questions and had the ability to help me come to my own conclusions about what I truly wanted. He's a wonderful career counselor and helped me more than I could ever put into words.

I've known Penny as a colleague for 18 years and she is the epitome of professionalism combined with warmth, caring and expert guidance. Penny instantly makes every person she comes in contact with feel at ease and as if she's known them for years. I've seen her patients interact with her and it's clear that she has a gift that defies words. God has blessed her with a helping mind and heart that will change your life for the better. The real testimonial is seeing how clients track her down years later when they have a crisis they need help with; they don't reach out to someone new, they reach out to someone they trust. Penny is the counselor other counselors would go see in their time of need. Simply put, she's the best there is.

Words can not describe the counseling I have received from Henry, but I do know I would not be the same person that I am today without his guidance. I was at the worst place I have ever been in my life. Henry went above and beyond anything I would ever expect from a counselor....and I have tried many. Henry makes you feel comfortable about opening up with issues of concern. I have been with Henry for over a year and still go now for continued support. I am so very thankful to The Lord above for His direction that lead me to Henry.

When talking to Chris, it's clear he understands what it means to demonstrate true compassion. He doesn't just acknowledge your struggle as one does with sympathy, nor does he simply put himself in your shoes and leave it at that. Instead, he chooses compassion by recognizing your struggle and responding in such a way that integrates a sense of shared humanity. In doing so, he creates the optimal client-counselor relationship necessary for the healing process. Chris gets it and you should always surround yourself with professionals who get it.

Little background story, I was marrying into a military life. I did not know a lot about this life style the officiater made sure he counseled me, helped me understand what kind of life style I was marrying into. He even went above and beyond to assist with counseling and trying to find ways to help counsel the man I was marrying who was over seas doing a deployment in Iraq. These are sweet people who love doing what they do, I loved the job they did and highly recommend them for anyone.


There are three major differences between my approach of marriage counseling and many other qualified professionals. First of all, I am bilingual and bicultural, it allows me to understand a wider range of people and couples who do not consider themselves "the conventional couple". On the other hand, before I meet with the couples, they are requested to first take a 30-minute online questionnaire individually. Many couples found it tremendously helpful to learn about their strengths and growth areas during counseling. It also reduces the chances of misunderstandings of the counselor or making inaccurate assumptions about the marriage. Last but not least, I am theologically and psychologically trained while handling marital difficulties (e.g. conflict resolution, forgiveness and reconciliation, sexual intimacy, etc.) For more information about my biography or credentials, please visit www.KarisWong.com.

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.
