Alison is a huge part of my support system, having her as my therapist has been an honor and everyone around me can see my growth. The first step is being willing to talk about your problems the next is building a strong foundational support system and Alison is a Keystone in mine.

Alison takes the time to listen to me and what's going on that day even if she might have her own list of questions from my journal entries. She is patient with me and is very helpful in giving me ideas on where to go from the place I am at now.

Alison Mann is amazing. I was originally matched with a different therapist that only responded with 1-3 words during our first few exchanges. I requested a change in counselor before we even had our first session(I didn't want to pay $80 a session to talk with someone who didn't seem personally invested at all in my mental health goals).
Better Help then matched me with Alison after asking me a few questions about what kind of counselor I would like, and I haven't looked back since.
Alison really listens to me whenever we talk, and she even sends me things throughout the week when we aren't in session. Regardless of whether we're in a session or she's off the clock it's clear that Alison personally has my best interest in mind, which makes me feel even more motivated to keep working to become a better person.
She does give you homework, which can be annoying for those who don't want to work outside of sessions, but I've found the homework to be really helpful in keeping me accountable and focused on my mental health goals in-between sessions.
Simply put, Alison is the best counselor I've ever had; I sincerely find a 30 minute session, over the phone by the way, to be more beneficial than the hour long, in-person sessions I've had in the past with my previous counselors. If I could, I would give her an 11/10.
