Upon meeting Rev. Garrett for the first time, to help us with marriage counseling, we immediately felt comfortable opening up to him. He was straight forward, to the point, and could read both of us to help guide him in our discussions. We can now begin to understood what we need to do to grow closer and strengthen our relationship. My husband and I are looking forward to having him help us remain accountable while we progress through counseling. He is providing us with the tools that we were missing. He has our complete trust and gratitude.

I found Doris on Thumbtack for pre-marriage counseling. My fiance and I met with Doris and her husband, Ralph, for six sessions. We thought we knew exactly what we needed to talk about, but they really helped to dig deep and get to the heart of lingering concerns. They were very open and non judgemental, supportive and honest. I recommend this to EVERYONE—whether you’re getting married or not. If you are serious about building a solid foundation for life (for a future family and for yourselves) I highly recommend Doris and Ralph. We have a champion for life in them. We are off to get married next week and we couldn't be more confident and feeling free in our decision to join our lives.

My boyfriend had been very skeptical of couples counseling but I am so happy to say his mind has changed after just one visit with Bradley. I am so excited for future visits and for the tools to make our relationship stronger.

I cannot say enough good things about Kevin. I didn't know much about therapy before starting sessions with him about a year ago. I assumed it would be hyper-clinical and maybe a little cold. For those reasons, I put off contacting any therapists for more time than I should have. I was happy to discover that my sessions with Kevin a have been the complete opposite of what I expected. He's warm and receptive, reassures me when I need it, challenges me often in a positive way, and opens my eyes to my own strength. Going to Mr. Curry has been a remarkably empowering experience. I highly recommend him!

Francia performed our marriage counseling at our house in McKinney and our wedding at my sister's house in Plano. She was very accommodating to our needs. She is warm and personable and made fast friends with my seven-year-old nephew whom she was meeting for the first time. I recommend her for any of your pastoral needs.

Rachel works as an independent family therapist and is amazing at family and individual interactions. She is able to build amazing relationships with the clients from the very start. She is caring and concerned about her clients and it shows in her counseling. She has many tools at her disposal (such as theories, games, and activities) and brings them into therapy for the benefit of her client's self discovery. I would recommend Rachel to anyone looking for therapy for any reason.

          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 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.

          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.   

          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.
