My now husband and I are not affiliated with any one church or organized religion, but believe strongly in God and the sanctity of marriage. We were referred to Mr. Smith by friends who also had him officiate their wedding. Prior to our August 2012 wedding, Mr. Smith came to our home in Oconomowoc for several counseling sessions that we will never forget. What we learned in these sessions not only better prepared us for marriage, but Mr. Smith provided us keys to build and reflect upon throughout our lives together. Mr. Smith attended our rehearsal. He also customized his wedding speech to our preferences, while incorporating his strong Christian values and message about God and the institution of marriage. And because he took the time to get to know us both during our counseling sessions, he gave an exceptional talk at our wedding and also added a couple of appropriate mentions about us as personally. He also agreed to say a prayer at our reception. And before he did, he gave a short, but humorous speech which our guests really enjoyed. He cared deeply about my husband and I and even contacted us every year thereafter on our anniversary to see how we are doing. My husband and I still think back and feel so privileged that Mr. Smith came into our lives and officiated our wedding.

I never heard of getting relationship counseling but a friend of mine thought it would be good. We had 3 sessions and it did good. Some times we take our friends for granted without even know. Ms Stokes showed us some ways to communicate better even as friends.

    We loved working with Tracie on premarital counseling! She was kind, thoughtful, and very flexible to our logistical needs. It was so convenient to work with Tracie because she was able to come to our house every week for five weeks. Tracie asked a lot of questions, made space for us to think through the important steps in preparing for marriage, identified our key areas of focus, and followed through on all that she promised. We would recommend Tracie again for premarital counseling in a heartbeat!

      I went to Mr. Coenen in an attempt to quit smoking. I felt confident because besides being a hypnotist he is also a licensed Addiction Therapist. The first time i went he spent 3 hours with me. I went back a second time to refresh and have now been tobacco free for 8 months.

      Rev. Overholt met several times with the Bride and Groom about what their wedding should entail and what marriage means. She talked them thru writing their own vows and how to read them with a group of people listening. She was wonderful and everyone said she did an awesome job. I would highly recommend her services. Thank you for a job well done.

      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.
