Daniel, founder and president of Transcend Int., performed our premarital counseling session a little over eight years ago. Even though that amount of time has elapsed, it has not clouded our memory of our very positive experience. Daniel worked with our schedule, invited us into his home and made us very comfortable, and provided incredibly thoughtful and useful sessions. His curriculum was completely based on Scripture, and he had obviously taken a great deal of time to craft his sessions to be applicable to very real-life marital situations in order to realistically prepare us. We had also undergone premarital counseling with another pastor, and there was no comparison. Daniel really PREPARED us, helped us think through things we wouldn't have even know to discuss or consider, and truly made the transition into married life one that was not only smoother than it would have been, but also emphasized the importance of a life that makes the Gospel central.

We have really just begun our counseling journey but the service has been great so far. She is available for you all the time and she has a great understanding of the word of God and has helped us by using the scripture to bring us closer to the Lord and help us start to work through our troubles. By guiding us to Christ we feel like there is a stronger chance to work through our troubles and at the very least be more confident in our relationship with the Lord so that we can depend on Him in any circumstance. For it is He who will bless the marriage alone and forgive for any mistakes in which were made by my imperfect self. By listening to the Lord myself I have gained a better understanding of life and how to be a good husband and He is using Correnthia to teach me this. Her skill set is perfectly aligned with this.

Ginger is amazing! With Personal and business issues - both areas of my life were in crisis, and Ginger helped me work through things by listening and using her intuition to hear past what I was saying in the moment to what I truly meant. I feel like I can trust her, and she is so smart - she can often see things in a way that I don't necessarily see them. Ginger shows true concern without getting overly emotional, which helps me see things more clearly, too. Nanette

Tristan was our final speaker for our state conference of activity professionals. He ended our conference on an inspiring note and left us all feeling better for being there and ready to go back to our facilities and MAKE A DIFFERENCE! He was able to offer us perspective about what we do and how to utilize our gifts to better ourselves. I am so glad he was part of our conference.

    I had the privilege to work with Ben as I being trained up to leadership in the church. He added much value to our Christian Education program through his seminary education. He also provided wise dating counseling for my wife and I before we were married. We have been truly blessed by God's work through Ben.

    One of my favorite quotes is: "Life is not measured by the number of breaths we take, but by the moments that take our breath away." To me, life is a journey. There will be many bumps/bruises and obstacles along the way. That's okay. It's how you overcome those hurdles that count. Some need more assistance than others on this journey, and that's okay too. My approach is to promote healing and personal growth/development along this journey called life. I do not claim to have all of the answers. I believe that everyone is the expert of their own lives. My role is to assist you with getting out of your own way and discovering the path that you want to follow. I am skilled in a variety of therapeutic approaches to assist clientele with achieving their personal goals. I have vast experience in working with individuals from kindergarten through the geriatric stage of life. I provide outpatient counseling for those struggling with various mental health issues (i.e. Depression, Anxiety, Bipolar, etc.), behavioral problems, survivors of domestic violence/sexual abuse/rape, grief and loss, self-esteem, marital/couple's counseling, and parenting. In addition to offering psychotherapy, I added a new service to my private practice. I now offer divorce mediation. Divorce can be a long, complex, and stressful process. If you are in the process of seeking a divorce and would like to work towards obtaining an uncontested divorce, please feel free to contact me for additional information.


    We are providing individual, couples, and family therapy in a private setting. We are tailoring the counseling approach to the needs of the clients.

    We provide spiritual counseling and personal support to those in need. We have over 20 years of experience.


    I offer pre and post marriage counseling, marriage ceremonies and weddings performed anywhere like home, church or other venue.


    I am an ordained minister, a retired school teacher and a certified belief therapist. I am a mother and grandmother who understands the struggles and hardships encountered by women in today's society. I offer counseling and support, which brings about healing for today's women with damaged emotions. This includes hurting women from all walks of life.


    My name is Naima Mohamed (MSc). I am BACP accredited clinical psychologist with 12 years of experience. I earned my master's degree in clinical psychology at Nottingham University, and I am member of British Psychological Society (Nottingham, UK). I am a registered/member of British Psychological Society, British Psychological Association, Dubai Health Authority, and Qatar National Health Authority. I provide email and Skype therapy for those suffering from depression, autism, childhood trauma and more.


    I provide counseling and psychotherapy for individuals, couples, and families. I have been in practice since 1991 and enjoy assisting people in reaching their goals. Most insurance are accepted.


    I offer an array of services, from planning to implementing the ceremony (working with or without a wedding planner), prior to which I offer a 4-hour FOCCUS pre-marital preparation course in person or by phone, using software to assess areas of challenge to be discussed during the 4 hours of coaching. I also do serious dating coaching to help couples discover if, in fact, they are right for each other and want to make the commitment to marry. I work with blended couples, where one or both partners are bringing children into the relationship - such a complex dynamic and has a 75% chance of failure without preventative measures, as does those couples who've been married before. The more marriages they've had, the higher the rate of failure without preparational coaching. I also coach the couples who've moved past the infatuation stage and help them to renew and/or discover the deep decision that love and the marriage vow means. Finally, I coach the troubled couples - those that don't see how there is any way to save their marriage. As a pastor, it is a great honor to be of service in such a wonderful capacity. I love what I do, and my passion for seeing couples go the distance grows stronger every day. If the couple will give me their trust, I will give them my all, and God will do the rest.

    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.
