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.

Feeling safe in therapy is very important. While sitting with Paul, his attention and presence allow me to feel supported and deeply cared for. His wisdom and perspective broaden my insight and guide me in what I’m working toward. Paul balances comfort with professionalism well. I feel relaxed when I’m with him but I know that he’s looking through an educated lens.

We really appreciated John's warmth and his knowledge base. He was very thorough in getting to know each of our backgrounds and how they contributed to the communication problems we were having. He clearly enjoys working with couples and that really comes through, along with his focus on helping people create their best possible relationship. We would not hesitate to recommend him to our friends and family.

About

I really care about my clients and really seek to give them tools to take what they learn home with them. There is little value in feeling better in the counseling office and then going home and still being stuck. I give a lot of handouts and also offer exercises and techniques to help people deal with stress, anxiety and negative thinking.

About

I’ve been practicing psychotherapy for 24 years. I have considerable experience with many different issues including depression, anxiety, bipolar disorder, relationship struggles, grief, coping with chronic illness, career struggles, abuse suffered in childhood, autistic spectrum disorders, and more. Yet, my professional expertise is humbled by a personal awareness of just how hard it can be to change. It takes the right sort of support and a lot of courage.

About

I work as a mental health counselor serving predominantly youth and young adults. I have been supporting people in navigating through life's difficulties for over 15 years. I have done so in a wide variety of settings ranging from the desert of Idaho to the Puget Sound out my front door. I currently serve clients in a more traditional office setting in Bellingham, WA but bring to those sessions and eclectic background of education, training and experiences. I specialize in assisting clients who are struggling with depression, anxiety, anger issues, attachment issues, drug use or abuse and divorce.

About

My hypnotherapy/counseling work stands out from others in my business because, I've probably been where you are now. I have a lot of life experience, so I understand what you're going through. I take the time needed at each session (1-2 hours) to help you feel better. I charge by the session, not by the hour. If you hire me to officiate at a ceremony, you will know that you will receive more than from others. I'm been performing ceremonies, and teaching others to, since 1996. So I've performed hundreds of weddings, everything from traditional Christian to very Pagan. I believe that it's YOUR day, not mine or anyone else's. I also officiated at memorials, baby blessings, vow renewals, plus other life changing/life phase ceremonies.

About

As a marriage and family therapist, I specialize in walking alongside clients having emotional and relational struggles. I listen with compassion, offer pertinent insight, and share hope for a better future. My clients describe me as someone who "gets them", in part because I combine my advanced clinical training as a therapist with my life experience as a wife, mom, friend and businesswoman.

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.
