Verified review

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.

Back, when I saw Christina Wilson, I was at one of my lowest points. I had the three foster kids, unemployed and depressed. One of the kid's therapist's noticed that I may need help too. I started seeing Christina and she made me feel at ease immediately helped me to think a different way. No, she didn't solve my problems but helped me see them in a different view. She even saw my spouse and I, together. Christina is an empathic listener and really did help me feel that she cared about what I was saying to her. She gave me "homework" to help me with my self esteem issues and inspired to journal again. Christina has a kind heart and eyes, full of intelligence. She has the ability to challenge a client to see things differently and solve rehire own problems. Christina is one of a kind! I'd recommend her to anyone I care about who is going through some rough times!!! AMB

For pre-marital counseling, Heath has helped us lay a strong foundation for our relationship. She has, owing to her insightful guidance, given us tools for communications and conflict-resolution specific to the unique needs of our individual personalities and the ways in which those manifest in our relationship. Her attentiveness gave us great ease, helping us address our issues in a loving and compassionate manner. In short, she's an excellent couples' counselor and we highly recommend her.

I have seen Lotus a few times and had a tarot reading. She really cares about her work and makes you feel comfortable. I came to her depressed and confused about my direction in life and after, I had more motivation to get things done and I know which goals I want to focus on. I absolutely recommend her if you have issues in your past you want to resolve and move on from. I chose her instead of a traditional therapist because she gets you into deep relaxation to heal your inner child and help change your patterns. You will feel better after the first session!

When I first started working with Spencer, I had reservations about therapy due to previous experiences which I found to be... less than helpful. Over the course of around a year, Spencer helped me to develop techniques that would allow me to redirect my mind from the things that were causing me a great deal of depression and anxiety. This man has literally seen me at my worst and best, and aimed to provide me with support for either extreme. Some of the most challenging times of my life we're discussed with Spencer, and he was always open and non-judgmental. This is not to say, however, that Spencer is a "yes-man" therapist, and he frequently encouraged me to look at both sides of an interaction where I was struggling to see all points of view included. Long story short, if you want an understanding and compassionate therapist who will also help you challenge yourself to overcome the issues you're struggling with, Spencer is an excellent choice.

Devin is incredibly friendly, considerate, and helpful. After trying another therapist for Marriage counseling who seemed to treat us like a business transaction we loved the care that Devin showed us. We look forward to her professional and yet incredibly welcoming approach each week. She also has been very flexible with schedule and that has meant a lot to us and our crazy schedule. Highly recommended.

My overall experiences with Amanda has been phenomenal. I’ve seen so many therapists in my life and I’ve never felt the level of comfort or convenience as I have with her. The comfort of receiving talk therapy in the privacy of my own home helps me open up more significantly, removes the anxiety of travel/office visits, and has created the kind of rapport I often avoided with other professionals. Additionally, the flexibility means I can still make my appointments if I’m traveling, not at home, or outside my home city, which removes a huge barrier to care as someone who is often quite transient! The level of treatment is on par with any other therapist I’ve seen, if not higher, and the continuum of care and continuity of care has definitely helped my progress - there’s no excuse for cancelling appointments when it’s so easy, which has contributed significantly to my ability to effectively handle issues. By the end of my first session with Amanda, I knew I had done the right thing by reaching out to talk to someone. I had been suffering from severe anxiety and extensive over-worrying from everything from whether the trash was taken out to if it’s possible that my marketing clients could fire me all at the same time. As my therapist and I have continued to work together, I have not only changed most of my thought patterns that lead to unnecessary anxiety and worry, but have also continued on the path toward total self-acceptance, something I know wouldn’t be possible without the help from Amanda.

Tonya is the most wonderful therapist. From day to day turmoil , PTSD, encouraging in stressful situations, And so much more. I have never had such a warm, loving and compassionate therapist like tonya. I think anyone who has the need, would be hard pressed to find someone as wonderful as her. She was so easy to trust and open up with. I feel safe with her. Tonya is someone you can count on when things are confusing, when you need reassurance. She doesn't try to force you into her own agendas, nor does she pressure you into things your not ready for. Her gentle loving approach is reassuring, and works. I cannot say enough good things about her.

    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

      Bahareh is helpful allowing me to talk out loud, and thereby understand or disentangle my thoughts and feelings. This is especially important, when a person has been under significant amount stress, pain and confusion, trying to dismantle and figure out the chaos in one's life during an abuse. She also works with other professionals to provide the necessary steps to achieve my emotional and mental wellbeing.

      Jaclyn has great hand movements that made me feel comfortable and relaxed. She asked me what I wanted her to work on (my lower back & shoulders) & it was exactly what I was looking for. She is polite,clean, considerate, focused, understanding, warm hands, knowledgeable, & professional. I would highly recommend going to her in the future and I look forward to getting my next one soon.

        I am so lucky to have found Colleen. She changed my life and has been one of the most consistently incredible people in my support system. She's experienced, knowledgable, intelligent, a joy to be around, and always going above and beyond. When I first started seeing Colleen I was in really rough shape, but she gave me tools to work with and help me heal. I've seen several therapists and she's hands down the only one I'd ever go back to or recommend.

        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.
