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!

Meeting with Ralph and Doris has been wonderful. After experiencing a bad therapist, I felt more at ease after the first visit. It is still a long journey ahead, but I feel it is possible now with their help

My experience working with Jeana has been awesome. My favorite part about, A Safe Place to Heal, is knowing I'm walking into a safe atmosphere and I can be real with my therapist, where healing can take place. If you can't be real or open with your councilor, you won't be able to heal. Jeana is someone I can share anything with and let her in my world. Where I'm normally guarded and shut down, I trust Jeana and let her in with my thoughts, feelings and pain. Her office is an eviroment that is warm, welcoming and a place, I am allowed to express myself freely. I always enjoy and look forward to meeting with Jeana for a number of reasons. Jeana allows me to get real and raw in my appointments. I don't hold anything back when I talk with her mentally or emotionally. I love seating on her couch and knowing whatever I process and share with her, matters to her. Jeana makes it easy to connect with and relate to. Sometimes, when I meet with her, I don't even feel like I'm in a session with her. It feels like I'm talking with a very close trusted friend. Its so important to find a therapist, who is relational. I have been able to develop a great relationship working with Jeana. I appreciate her fresh approach, open mindedness and that she is so down to earth real. Jeana is professional, trustworthy, confident, caring, kind and dedicated to her patients. I highly recommend her and have found, A Safe Place to Heal, to be a great source for me to heal on my journey & help me in my life.

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.

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.

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.

    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.
