I've had many therapists in my day and, unlike many, Yasmina does not only sit back and listen. While some people may just need an ear to talk to, I do not. I need a counselor that can offer me thought provoking questions and give me direct tools and advice to follow. Yasmina did just that at our initial session. Both my husband and I look forward to what else she has to offer us.

Wendy Lynne changed my perspective on everything! I was very hesitant to see a counselor at first, but my life felt stagnant and stuck, so I eventually started looking online for someone. I was very thorough in my research and very picky, as I wanted someone who I could trust and connect with. I stumbled upon Wendy's website and she seemed very personable in her videos, and I enjoyed looking through all her articles. I could definitely relate to what she had to say, plus I liked her more alternative/holistic approach. I started seeing Wendy in December of 2015 with a list of issues, the biggest ones being my relationship, career, and family. I signed up for 8 sessions and was expecting to talk a lot about my childhood, how I was raised, etc. But I soon realized that Wendy doesn't focus a lot on the past and instead focuses more on current relationships and issues, which is great because I was able to see results quickly! Plus, with my new perspective and understanding, I became less affected by my past traumas. Before Wendy, I was constantly questioning my relationship and was thinking of breaking up. But after my sessions with her, my relationship has transformed into something that I did not think was possible! It is now so easy, comfortable, and harmonious. Plus, my partner and I are getting married next month, which is a big deal for me, as I used to not believe in marriage! Wendy is very in tune with relationship dynamics and how men and women think/act differently. Learning these differences about my partner positively changed the way I interacted with them. She gave me the courage to speak up in my relationship, in a very effective and respectful way. She also gave me practical exercises, worksheets, and a personal hypnosis recording to use when problems arise. I love whipping out my pen and paper to go through her simple, but effective exercises. She has given me the knowledge and confidence to go through life knowing that there is no issue that I cannot work through! And if I cannot figure something out on my own, I can always come by for another helpful session. She is very responsive to my emails and is very accommodating with my schedule. I love how she gives me 2 hours of her undivided attention each session! We are able to cover a lot during that time, as opposed to the usual one hour sessions that other counselors offer. Discovering Wendy has been such a huge blessing, and I've recommended her to all my friends and family.

I've been to several counselors over the years, Nancy exceeded my expectations. She's no bullshit but also very warm, makes you feel comfortable right away, knows how to mediate a conversation, and is very flexible with scheduling. She's easy going, but also seriously committed to helping. She's pretty great. Go see her.

He is a great listener, hearing your words and caringly testing for veracity. And pointing out half-truths so you can dig deeper. He notices and attends to what you DON'T say, as well. As a coach counselor, he is truly aware, empathic, insightful and speaks from a wealth of experience, having truly sought out life and lived on with wide-ranging experiences that have given him wisdom and perspective at what all men go through in life.

There are few therapists, counselors or other agents of change that have helped me to see the world and my place in it clearly as Betty has. Our work together, uncovering the kernel of belief that can orient or often disorient an entire life trajectory has been nothing short of transformative. Count yourself lucky if you have time scheduled to understand your life with Betty.

We have 9 children - all adopted - and many from difficult backgrounds. LauraMaery has been able to help us with many issues we've encountered. Her advice is timely and practical. She's been able to help us see what the underlying issues are and what we need to do as parents to help our children with their issues. We've dealt with everything from minor teen rebellion to chronic running away to teen pregnancy, and she's been able to help us through it all. I highly recommend her as a counselor. She's spot-on with her advice and very personable and easy to work with.

I have worked with Zane over the last two years. It has been a very rewarding experience. Zane is not only smart and able to quickly understand what I am communicating, he asks questions and provides insight that helps me focus on the elements I can work on most efficiently. In addition to personal growth work, Zane has also helped me make a career transition that was intimidating and confusing. I have no hesitations on recommending him as a counselor. – Jesse

Katie is a superb counselor. She guided me through a huge transition in my life when I was feeling very conflicted about moving across the country. Katie helped me resolve this issue by getting me to relax and tap into my self so that I could discover what the resistance was all about. After our session, I felt invigorated with a sense of confidence and assurance that my decision was the right one. I am so grateful for the experience and her willingness to help assist me through my life-shifting decision.

Bahareh Yazdi is an amazing therapist. Her skilled listening, feedback, and counseling were instrumental in helping me getting through a really hard time in my life. She is empathetic and easy to talk to and excellent at her job. Because of her support and the treatment she has provided for me, it has opened many new doors in my life. I will continue to see her and would refer her anytime to a friend in need of a therapist.

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.
