    Pastor creates a safe and inviting environment where you can freely talk and be heard. He also provides powerful insight and makes sense of craziness. I am truly great full to have pastor in my life, as a safety net. When I think I can't take it anymore he give me knowledge and reassurance that I can! I would highly reccomend him!

    Kathy is an amazing counselor. She is a great listener and has a way of helping you understand what you need to do to improve yourself/situation. She helped improve my marriage in the first session by helping me realize things about our relationship that I couldn't see. I wish Kathy was still in our area. I always feel better after speaking with her.

      Amelia is a wonderful coach. During my session with her I felt safe to freely express myself and I found her diverse and caring approach to be very helpful in guiding me to clarify my dilemma and to develop strategies to move forward. She is very patient and attentive, and kept me on track throughout the session. She also seems to truly enjoy her work. I highly recommend her as both a coach and a counselor.

      My life experience helps inform my work, in this case being middle aged is an asset. I believe that service to others is my primary motivation for the work I do - it makes me feel good to be able to help others. As I watch people change and grow, I am in awe of their strength and resiliency, assets that people don't always know they possess become apparent.

      About

      My services can be found at Calm Minds Studio in Libertyville, where I work with the planners, worriers, achievers, and multi-taskers who are so busy taking care of other people (and things) that they need help taking care of themselves. Sound like you? Do you: Commute to work or sit at a desk all day and have low back pain, neck and shoulder tension or stand up all day and have tired feet? Have trouble sleeping through the night or trouble falling asleep? Want to feel more focused and present in your day? Want to stop the worrying thoughts and keep you up at night and distract you from your day? Want to feel more relaxed, flexible and balanced? Want to feel happier, more content and fulfilled? I offer a different type of experience. Walking into Calm Minds Studio for coaching, counseling, yoga therapy or a yoga class, you'll find that right away you can come as you are. There are no plush chairs or stigmas. I offer an open, non-intimidating and relaxing environment for you to get what you need, 100% customized for you. Some examples: - A client wants a private yoga class where regardless of the type of day she's day, we can guide her in a relaxing or energizing session that meets her exact needs. Some days it's a lot of floor stretches and other days it's breathing deeply into more strength building poses. - A client wants yoga therapy but really realizes she just wants a non-conventional counseling experience. Her therapist wears yoga clothes. The client sits on a yoga mat in a softly lit room. The client talks and the therapist offers guidance from a unique perspective of helping the client to be more present, accepting and in control. - A client just wants alone time as a busy mom of 3. She uses her time to talk, sometimes exercise, sometimes do yoga, sometimes just lie down and relax. We take both BCBS insurance and offer a sliding scale for self-paying clients. We are completely customizable and promise an experience like you've never had before. Take the stigma out of taking care of yourself. Be proud to come to Calm Minds, where you know you'll get the tools to be a better version of yourself, for yourself and those you love and interact with. Get relaxed. Feel present. Limit the worrying. Find balance.

      About

      I am a writing tutor and college counselor. My love of literature began early in life when I announced to my parents that I wanted to read for a living. Fast forward a few decades and I read Shakespeare at Oxford, earned my PhD in English literature, and wrote literature textbooks for a major publishing company. I love the one-on-one experience of working with students because I can see their development and growing self-confidence as they brainstorm a creative essay, define their argument in a persuasive piece, or find the right piece of research to tie their ideas together. Many of my students come to me for college counseling and enjoy working with me on their college application essays.

      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.
