Written on Oct 06, 2020 after therapy with Alissa for 2 years and 2 months on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, trauma and abuse, self esteem, and career difficulties

I have been a client of Alissa Green's for approximately 2 years. I have participated in therapy before, so thought I had a good understanding of what to expect and what I'd get out of my sessions. I've benefitted so much more than I thought I would. Alissa listens empathetically but also has an innate talent for defining and showing me the "other side" - an aspect of a situation I hadn't considered. She emphasizes my strengths while also calling me on my BS. I've really grown to be more confident in my ability to manage my diagnoses, relationships and work life with her help.

Alissa is a patient listener who allows me to work out my concerns while occasionally adding helpful guidance. It has been very easy to work with her from the beginning, and she did an excellent job with patient intake. I felt like we were both clear on my objectives from the beginning. Since working with her, I have made several changes to my life that have been critical to increasing my happiness. I highly recommend her for anyone seeking to change what's not working in their lives.

I think Alissa Green is very good at trying to put herself in others shoes so to speak and that’s exactly what I think people need when they are reaching out for help.

Alissa really helped me zero in on the real issues and work to find solutions. I very much appreciated her perspective and wisdom.

We are new to each other, but so far I've found Alissa to be a great listener and motivator. I told her some things that I needed and she was able to deliver. I look forward to more work with her!

I’ve only had one session with Alissa but so far I love everything about this app. Alissa is very helpful. She explains everything very well and is very nice. I like this therapy better than traditional therapy and I’m looking forward to future sessions with her!

Alissa has a very calm, steady demeanor which is really helpful to me. She is a great listener and shares her measured perspective patiently and freely. She is both compassionate and 'street-smart.

Alissa is an outstanding counselor. I feel very fortunate to have her help. Each time we've talked, no matter how bad I'm feeling, I always come away feeling more hopeful and more happy. Thank you Alissa!

Alissa is great. I had my inhibition about online counseling before joining better help. But in the first session itself, Alissa made me very comfortable and she listens to me so patiently!! It's such a huge relief to find someone who doesn't judge you.

Written on Jul 22, 2018 after therapy with Alissa for 9 months on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, relationship, trauma and abuse, and self esteem

I found BetterHelp at a time in my life where I was so desperate for help and guidance that I was at a crossroads. I decided to look for alternatives to regular counseling or therapy because they are so expensive and I was very lost. When I found this app I have a brief description of myself and my troubles, I was matched with a counselor the same day. Nothing against this lady but she recommended a book to help learn better coping mechanisms for stress and had I not been so far along in depression this would have been a wonderful start. I decided to switch counselors and to give as honest and to the bone description of what I'd been through and how I was having difficulty dealing with my emotions, and again, my desperation. In short, I was looking for someone who would read my bio and know what they were going to really be helping with. It took until the next day to be matched with Alissa. She was thorough and personal, thanked me for being so honest about the vulnerable issues I had described and approached me to consider for help instead of jumping write into therapy. She is very goal oriented, but it's your goals, the personal milestones that she helps to make clear and more achievable than progress for the sake of progress. I had to quit BetterHelp months ago because I couldn't afford it and am in a better place financially but was recently going through a very difficult time, I thought I'd overcome. I reinstated my subscription and messaged Alissa asking if we could talk. She answered me within the hour and we scheduled a video appointment for that same day. The turn around from being able to speak to someone who is knowledgeable and genuinely cares has made a big difference in my life. I'd recommend her and Better Help to anyone who feels they need some guidance before it gets to the point I was. It doesn't need to be completed that hard and it's such a relief to know there is help and good people out there. Thank you for what you do!

Written on Apr 10, 2018 after therapy with Alissa for 3 weeks on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, relationship, and sleeping

When starting counseling I was a bit skeptical but ever since I've started I have seen a great change in myself. Alissa has helped me overcome my lying issue and has helped me bring happiness to my marriage and overall life. I couldn't thank her enough for all the support and guidance she has given me!

Alissa has a lot of great ideas and concepts to share. I find myself thinking about some of her clarifications long after our sessions. Top marks.
