First impressions are very important and something about the information [about Bradley] on this site stood out to me. This being my first experience with this type of counseling, I went to the initial appointment a little guarded. However, to my delight, I found the atmosphere to be warm and relaxing. The focus on our marriage goal and how to achieve them is very meaningful to both my husband and myself. I appreciate that Bradley is very personable and empathetic while injecting just the right amount of humor and personal experiences . It's exactly what we were looking for in a Counselor.

I assumed counseling would only scratch the surface, and that the relationship between my boyfriend and I could not be salvaged. Paul not only noticed our deep-rooted issues immediately, but he helped us resolve them in a nonjudgmental atmosphere. After the first session, my boyfriend and I felt comfortable discussing everything in detail. By the end of our time with Paul, we learned to manage our conflict and we are now happily engaged! This was the best investment we've made for our relationship to date!

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.

My husband and I were referred to Steven by our friends. Steven had helped their family during a difficult time and felt that he could help us as well. My husband was hesitant to start couples counseling and see ANY counselor but thankfully agreed to start weekly sessions once he talked with Steven over the phone. Steven is very easy to talk and you can tell he has been doing this for a very long time. He was able to connect with both my husband and I and help us see what areas we needed to work on in our relationship and helped us communicate more effectively. We liked Steven so much that we decided he would also be able to help our 15 year old son with his everyday struggles. My son has a really busy schedule with sports and school and Steven has always been flexible by offering Skype and phone sessions as needed. He has really helped my son overcome his anxieties and given him an outlet so he doesn't keep everything bottled up inside. Steven has been a lifesaver for my family and I highly recommend him!

I have known Steve and Michelle for over 20 years. They have real heart to see both individuals and couples be all that God had called them to be. They have a wealth of knowledge and experience and are not afraid to say the hard things! They were able to walk my wife and I thru some rough patches in our marriage. They are loving, compassionate, and I would recommend them to anyone that would need a hand to get thru issues.

Counseling with Chris was the best thing that could have happened to me. It has been a long journey and I continue to run the race.

About

I believe that in all aspects of life that there comes a time when we sometimes just need someone to talk to other than those close to us. We offer that sit down time. Free from judging. Simply being that ear and allowing God to lead us as to what advice should be necessary to offer you and help get you through whatever it may be.

About

I specialize in counseling grief and loss from a unique experiential perspective, as I was widowed in my late thirties. This was my underlying motivation to return to graduate school in my early fifties to enter the counseling profession. I have a passion to help others through loss in the same way that I was helped. I also specialize in counseling for substance abuse and its effects on individuals and their loved ones, using both Twelve Step and cognitive behavioral approaches.

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.
