My significant other was not thrilled about the idea of counseling. However, after meeting the Alexanders, he can't wait until our next session. Their approach was exactly what we needed.

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.

Erin was one of the most helpful and healing presences in my life as a depressed and anxiety-ridden teenager with no hope or sense of purpose. She listened to me when I needed an ear to vent to, and offered gentle and considerate advice when she knew I needed it most. My own darkness I was going through at that time never phased Erin, never scared her off. She always brought a positivity to our interactions that never felt fake or forced, and her care for me as a person left me feeling a little lighter after each interaction. Truly, there is no denying that she makes every person she comes across feel loved and cherished for all they are in that moment, anything they might have been in the past, and all they could be in the future. Erin is one of those rare people you only meet once or twice in a lifetime; someone who you can’t help but feel more at peace around. This is my abiding knowledge of her as a person after having the pleasure of knowing her as a mentor for many years. If you’re hesitant at all about counseling, or wonder if things could ever possibly get better, give Erin a chance to walk beside you in your pain and help you wrestle through it all. You won’t regret it.

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!

The Bunkcoff’s were available in times of crisis and so patient with us. They were willing to meet as many times as we needed and always made sure that we knew that they cared about us, our marriage and expressed emense support.

About

It takes courage to seek counseling and create change. Success is possible. I have heard so many stories of restoration: marriages that seemed beyond hope gaining incredible intimacy; people whose lives have been riddled with anxiety finally start to take control. It is possible and I believe you can do it. The road may not be easy but it is worth it. I am a Christian counselor who integrates Biblical truth with effective counseling methods. My approach is grounded in Cognitive Behavioral therapy and Attachment Theory. I also love to be creative and incorporate other methods such as thinking through early recollections, creating genograms, and using art during sessions. Ultimately, my goal is to clients gain freedom through attaining greater awareness, integrity, community and hope. To know more about me, I am an interracially married mother of two young boys. I am an avid reader and movie watcher and I love learning about new cultures and having good conversation. Whether you are struggling or just want to learn more about yourself, I would love to get to know you. 7. I know I requested you to add "faith based" to the tagline but I am reconsidering. Could you please remove it and just put "North Dallas Individual and Marital Counseling"

About

Once singles enter into a serious dating relationship, it's easy to want to rush an engagement along. However, most couples on their wedding day have known each other for more than 3 years prior to that day and were engaged on average for 15 months. 88% of engaged couples end up married with an average attendance at their wedding of 155 people. We believe that you should not base a lifelong commitment on a short term relationship. So, don't feel the need to get engaged and rush things along. Enjoy your time together and continue to build your relationship together in Christ. We believe you should be first complete in Christ before entering into the second most important relationship commitment in your life -- on your wedding day.

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.
