We've only had 1 meeting with Gary, but I can seriously tell if there's a man for our "mess," it's going to be this man! If he can't get us on the right track, no one can...over an 18 yr. marriage of chaos, multiple, multiple counsellors and therapist have not been able to break through! Looking forward to the next meeting...btw, he's professional, but tough!

Roxanne Ramos June 17, 2016 ​ I began coming to The Bridge in the 8th grade the year of 2013. I wanted to begin with saying thank you for helping me become the strong person I am now. To help me and my family when no one else was willing to. When we would leave others messages and not receive a call back. Until, one day you called and my mom set up an appointment for me. For putting so much time and effort to talk to me and help me get over the loss of my friend and cousin, to help me get through bulying, depression, and the thoughts of suicide. Also for wanting to help me become a better person. ​I’m so thankful to have had you as my therapist. Your help has gotten me through a lot, When I needed years of therapy to get over my emotions and help to move forward. I’m thankful for you trying to make me feel the best I could feel. For seeing me for who I really am and talking to me, for understanding how I truly feel deep inside. For noticing the difference in my progress and being happy for me. Also, for attempting to go to my choir concert when it got cancelled due to bad weather issues. Also for buying me very pretty flower. ​Another reason, I am thankful is because you would invite me to church or too little gathering at the church. The basketball bracelet you made me was very pretty and until this day I still have it. Also for buying me food when I had an empty stomach. For helping me gain a relationship with God, when I lost all my faith going through my troubles. I’m grateful to have met you and been able to share my troubles with you. Now I am an early graduate from Creekview HighSchool Class of 2016 and have regained my trust and faith in God. Sincerely, Roxanne Ramos

So much to say... I refer anyone I know in need of some great counseling to Todd. Over the last several years I have experienced tremendous growth in my life from my sessions of therapy with him. He is kind, easy to talk to, wise, discerning and holds my feet to the fire when I needed to step out of my comfort zone to find growth and healing. What more could you want in a therapist? Thank you Todd.

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!

Penny was recommended by a number of people I knew when I was looking for a therapist. It seemed Penny's name just kept coming up. Penny has helped not only my friends individually but their marriages, teens, major changes in their lives and also through the most traumatic and painful times of their lives. Penny's experience meant she knew what to ask to help me see where I was and then she gently and firmly guided me through to where life made sense again. I could not recommend her more highly.

I'm happy to recommend Kris and his counseling services to anyone in need. I first met Kris while experiencing significant issues in my marriage, and he not only helped me through that period, but also allowed me to see how my childhood experiences were impacting my life at large. Professionally, he is incredibly knowledgeable and progressive in his treatments. Personally, he is the most authentic, compassionate, and sensitive individual I've known. I have no doubt that he is 100% vested in my emotional well-being and couldn't imagine a better, or more qualified therapist to help guide me through my healing process.

    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.
