Mr. Gary Lacara is a SUPERSTAR!!! We highly recommend his premarital and relationship/marriage counseling expertise to every couple that's on a mission to succeed together, to truly commit to one another and work out their differences before and after getting married !!! Gary is very worldly, knowledgeable and experienced in all areas of life to truly understand and get to the bottom of our complexities as couples and human beings. He genuinely guides you, if not even relate to you and your partner on a personal level. As a tandem, after our premarital counseling, my (now) husband and I were wed by Mr. Gary Lacara in a sweet intimate ceremony in the comfort of our home, that was professionally as well as beautifully done to make us 'official' and we are very happy with the whole experience and look forward to having Mr. GARY by our side as our marriage counselor to help keep our relationship healthy and nourished and our communication clear. :) A+++++ for Mr. Gary Lacara!!!!

My experience working with The Bridge Counseling Center and Doris Alexander was more than outstanding, but it was life changing. I was able to receive counseling from Doris when I was at a very critical time in my life. Without her guidance and my faith I'm not sure where I would be. No matter what your season in life, or your circumstance I believe Bridge Counseling Center and Doris Alexander to be more than equipped to offer sound counseling. My experience was truly life changing and I'm in a better place because of our counseling sessions!

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 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!

    I've been knowing Pastor Johnathon For for about 3 years. He wasn't A Pastor when I met him. I met him at a restaurant, I was having alot of issues going on. I reached out to him for advice and he counseled me. Later on he became a Pastor and I became a member. Later on I relapsed and him and his wife ministered to me. With them praying, my family praying I've be clean for 18 months. Latrr on they counseled me and my now husband. Real Life Center is not just my church it's my home, my family. The love they have for people is amazing.

    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.

    About

    Do you know someone who is hurting? It is understandable why people who are hurting and experiencing problems in life might need a spiritual life coach. Do you know someone who is successful? What does success mean to you? Some believe that success is owning more stuff than your neighbor, having a significant other, being married, or being able to drink more than the rest! Some people think that individuals who are successful are lucky, they were born with a great talent, or they were handed the success on a silver platter. Does success just happen or do certain people have certain characteristics that help them develop into successful people, physically, spiritually, and mentally? Why do all successful people in life have coaches? Some have coaches for mechanical, spiritual, and financial needs and in some cases, successful people surround themselves with people who will re-affirm any action that they participate in. Successful individuals ensure their continued progress towards their goals through the use of outside experts. How can a major league ball player expect to perform day in and day out without being fine tuned occasionally by a specialist? All humans fall. Recently, one of the most popular professional athletes publicly announced his problem and reached out for professional help. Had he had a spiritual life coach, he could have perhaps had the strength to stay away from such temptation. It is easier to stay away from temptation than to get out of it! No one walks through life alone if they have Jesus Christ in their life. No one can walk through life empty and not having anyone to count on or reach out to. When the Holy Spirit is the foundation of an individual's life, they are in good hands. Human temptation is around everyone 24/7. Surrounding yourself with the right people is a key element in gaining success here on earth. Mostly all successful people have certain characteristics. They repeat these positive characteristics over and over again. Their inner strength (faith) is the foundation of who they are! As the bible tells us, "if you sow the same seeds, you will reap the same rewards." Success is no accident. In athletics, winning the batting title, the Gold Glove award, or having a MVP season does not just happen. In life, success should be measured by how many individuals you lift up, how many friends you support, and how many strangers you reach out to. Success is not about how much money a person makes! Why do some players rise to the occasion - bottom of the ninth with bases loaded? Why do some people shine in the darkest hour? Why do some players meet the challenges when 30 seconds are left on the clock and the team must score from 30 yards away? Why do some people gain strength through adversity and become stronger? These individuals pick themselves up when knocked down and move in the direction God is leading them! A person's limits or restrictions are usually caused through their belief in themselves. Once an individual has their faith in Jesus Christ and believes their destiny is in God’s hands, there can be no limits or restrictions. Knowing and understanding yourself and seeing yourself as God sees you is the true secret to living a successful life. If you see yourself as a 200 hitter and you're happy when you get two hits out of ten trips to the plate, then you will be satisfied when you're wrong or out eight out of ten times. With that attitude, how far will you go? Where will you be when you're 30, 40, 50 or 80? A spiritual life coach can help you to unleash your potential. Through faith, persistence, and hard work, all things are possible. So, let go of your inner control and allow God to drive your car! Put your hands up in the air, open your mind to what God has planned for you, and get ready for the ride of your life.

    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.
