LPC #72092 (Expires: 2021-03-01)
I have made serious progress in self development and personal growth with the help of Annie.
Annie has been really great to work with. She's responsive and gentle. I appreciate that she gave me a worksheet to list the things I wanted to work on with her and that she frequently checks in on how the progress on these are going. She's given me several Ah-ha moments and shed light into reason why I do things, things that never occurred to me before which is exactly why I started counseling in the first place. I would definitely recommend her for the type A person.
Including Annie, I've talked with about 4 counselors/therapist over the course of 7 years. My first therapist, one at my college I had, was one I appreciated and loved how kind and understand she was. She never pushed me to talk faster than the pace I was comfortable with. I never thought I could find another person that was as awesome as she was.
Annie reminds me almost spot on of my first therapist. She gives me homework to do to reflect on things I had no idea were things that were going on in my head. She has helped me understand my thoughts, feelings and let me know that it is a process and I love the honesty in her work. I know that I can trust her and her process and I am excited to keep speaking with Annie and getting closer to truly understanding my past and present even more. I am so thankful and appreciative for Annie's help.
Annie is the most wonderful therapist. She always makes me feel heard, recognises my progress and gives me things to think about. She always makes time to respond in a timely manner and makes sure to always schedule a session after a session is complete. She’s helped me through so much and has always been a positive refuge for when I need advice or am going through something. I’m so thankful to have her as my therapist.
Absolutely wonderful to work with. Listens extremely well and offers insightful feedback and thoughts. Has been a tremendous help.
Annie has been amazing quick to respond always professional and helps me identify issues that I never would have been able to identify in my own. After we identify these issues she is quick to help put a plan together so we can start resolving them in an effort to become a better me. Thank you.
Excellent experience and results. Very satisfied.
Annie has been wonderful with helping me through many family issues and cycles I want to break. I would and have recommended this service and would recommend her as a counselor.
I think Annie is very professional and shows the utmost care for her clients. I really enjoy her as my therapist and think she has helped tremendously.
It’s been a great experience, Annie is knowledgeable and provides excellent counsel.
Annie has been thoughtful, patient and encouraging throughout my sessions with her. I always feel respected and I'm able to share my thoughts and concerns without apprehension. She understands my concerns and makes sure that I feel comfortable to voice my fears. She helped me see things through a positive perspective and helped me understand myself better!
Annie is an excellent counselor. Very kind, patient and a good listener.
She is excellent. She is there when she is needed.
Annie is great! She is kind, compassionate, and gives me actionable tasks to complete to work on personal growth.
She is an excellent. So many times, a person has more than one issue contributing to their problems, that it is helpful for a therapist to essentially dissect the problem, and start with the most pressing issue that could make a significant change in the quality of the person's life. Ms. Milam does that and sends homework. She has been very effective. I really like her, and certainly would recommend her to anyone.
For example, she is helping me with a long standing behavior that was causing me to fail at my attempts to lose weight. I am making the change and on the right track. I know with just that one change I will reach my goal. She's an excellent therapist.
Annie is an excellent therapist! She listens, drives tangible actions for me, and keeps me on track.
Annie is kind, sweet and all around great to talk to. She really listens and understands what I'm going through. I know you will love working with her too!!!
Annie is patient and kind. There is no judgement in her eyes just the genuine want to help. She has been an amazing help to me and, I could imagine, many others!
Annie was wonderful.
Annie is so amazing! She really makes me feel comfortable and gives me productive ways to make daily living easier and more meaningful. She is so kind and truly listens without any judgement whatsoever.
It’s only been a couple of weeks...but I am loving this.
I love that I can just shoot Annie a message...maybe a simple thought I’m having....or a worry....and she responds!
She’s still getting to know me but she’s very supportive and understanding. And I have reason to believe she will challenge me when that’s what I need. And I hope she does.
I want to change. And change doesn’t come without a challenge.
She is super sweet and caring. I love that she always has great advice to offer me about my situations.
Annie is so kind, but does tell me what I need to hear. She listens and gives feedback. I really appreciate her method and value the time during our sessions.
Best counselor I’ve ever had.
Annie is fantastic! I’ve only worked with her the last month, but she has already helped me tremendously. She listens, gives helpful feedback, and suggests legitimate coping mechanisms. I highly recommend Annie to anyone needing support.
She has been amazing. Honest, quick to respond, helps me look at things a different way. I enjoy working with her.
It’s a relief to be able to talk to someone like Annie and immediately feel as if she completely understands what you’re feeling. Thank you!
Annie has been amazing!! She not only listens to me, but she helps me see things in a new light. I'm approaching things differently than I have in the past. I look forward to talking to her about daily struggles/successes!
I’ve worked with Annie for over a year now during one of the roughest parts of my life, a deadly illness, loosing my home and has a single mom with kids with health issues. Annie has helped me Navigate my feelings during the entire thing. I am much stronger, wiser and frankly still sane because of the counseling that I have received from Annie.
Everything has been amazing so far! She communicates very quickly and listens to my concerns and addresses them. I feel very positive about my choice in my counselor.
So far I'm happy with the conversations exchanged. :)
Annie has came into my life via Better Hell at a very hard and unusual time in my life and I am so grateful. She is very attentive and listens endlessly on all of your issues and concerns. She offers great advice and checks in regularly to see how you are doing which I really appreciate. Many counselors in the “normal” setting won’t usually check in with their patients and I am glad she takes the time to listen. She has helped me in amazing ways and has helped me in lots of areas in my life from family to career. I thank her for all of her help!
I’m loving my therapy with Annie! It’s nice to know I have access to her and the services of BetterHelp at any point during the day. And things have been slowly been falling back in to place!
Annie is a phenomenal amount of help! She has provided me with a great amount of tools already (only 3 weeks) and I am honestly feeling like a better different version of myself, I am in control of my anger much easier, I am understanding situations better, and I am learning to really live exactly how I picture myself in my mind.
Compassionate and intelligent
Dr. Annie Milam is a great counselor. In my moment of despair and distress, she gave me great perspective and resources to help me sort through my thoughts and behaviors. Although I still have a long way to go, I am feeling more hopeful about knowing myself, my self care and the healing and change of relationships around me.
Annie is really helping me come out of the fog. I still have along way to go, but at least I know I’m not alone in this anymore.
Annie has been so helpful in dealing with some difficult and stressful moments in my life. She is very compassionate and has offered me some helpful strategies to deal with stress and anxiety. I feel grateful for Annie's help!
She has been great. She asks me questions and gives me helpful tips without being forceful. She has been a great help to me!
Annie is a great counselor! She will be sure to address your specific concerns and help you through them. Her energy and great responses make it difficult not to keep a smile on your face throughout the counseling sessions. I would definitely recommend her to anyone facing confidence issues, although she may have expertise in other areas as well.
Annie is very prompt with her responses and offers worksheets and very good advice.
Really, really good-couldn't ask for anyone better.
This has been a better experience than I anticipated. Annie is a great asset to BetterHelp, and I look forward to all of our sessions. I've already recommended BetterHelp's services to multiple friends, because I think so highly of what this site is all about.
Annie is very understanding! She listens to my thoughts and repeats them back to me in a way that shows that she truly understands what I am going through. She has helped me to simplify areas of my life that I tend to overcomplicate! I don't know what I would do without her help.
She's very soothing in her approach. She is compassionate and patient. She follows up with me if I haven't been in contact. This experience and her approach showed me my true purpose in life. To be in her position gives me much joy and happiness. I hope to be in a position to help someone navigate the waters I was once in.
Annie has been wonderful in the time I've had her. She checks in with me if I forget to do so and on the times where I was needing and seeking someone to talk to on a daily basis, she has been there. She's managed to help me process through the roller coaster my life has felt like and has been such a big help for me.
She is extremely helpful and when internet connection isn’t reliable she uses other methods of reaching me on our appointments. She makes time for me and I really respect her for helping me out.
Annie is super nice, understanding and really knows how to get to the core issue. She's also good at changing her approach based on each client, rather than having only one way to ask or phrase things. She's very helpful and responds quickly.
In the short time I have been talking with Annie Milam, I feel I am learning how to change my life around. She has helped me not only work with my anxiety, but also work through what is causing it. She's very kind, very open minded and seems to really care about what I have to say. I was very nervous about counseling because I had never tried it before, but she has made it a wonderful experience and I'd recommend her and BetterHelp to anyone.
Annie is great and I have really found a lot of help with the sessions with her. She is great at listening and giving you solutions and help you find a resolution on problems that you face. Couldn’t be happier. Thanks so much, Annie.
Annie is so kind and a great listener. She has given me some keys pieces of advice and tools to use to help calm my anxiety. I love that I can contact her when I’m feeling frantic and she really helps me think through things and talks to me like a normal person instead of another client.
Annie Milam is an amazing counselor. She truly listens to me and understands what my concerns and problems are. She offers fantastic advice and support. I would highly recommend her to services to anyone in need. I am extremely impressed with her, as is my fiance. My fiance has commented on how far I have come since receiving counseling from Annie.
I have been working with Annie for a short time as of now but couldn’t have found a better couseler. I would highly recommend her to anyone for first pick!
Annie is an extremely patient person who knows how to listen well and make you feel comfortable sharing sensitive information about yourself. She helps guide you through getting a better understanding of your problem, then helps develop practices to modify your behavior into something more positive and productive. Worth every penny, I'm grateful for her support.
She listens intently and seems to care about my issues.
Annie has been incredibly helpful and supportive of me. Even when it doesn't seem like there's an answer to something, she still comes up with something to say to help me get to the next step. There's been a few things I've been nervous about telling her, but once I do, she is understanding and again, endlessly supportive. I can't thank her enough for how safe and comfortable she's made me feel throughout this process. She's good at what she does, and I'm glad to have her.
She has listened very well and ask a lot of questions so she understands. I love getting her messages.
I’ve only worked with Annie a short time, but boy has it been valuable. Just having an impartial party listen and offer advice and suggestions on how to deal with life’s crazy ups and downs has been wonderful. Annie is kind, sympathetic and absolutely wonderful. She offers great techniques and tools to help me navigate through difficult times.
I feel as though she truly does get to the bottom of everything and really cares about my issues at hand. She listens and responds to me quickly and works around my busy schedule. I have really grown to enjoy the one on one video meetings and daily messages. Annie does make it very easy to open up and speak to her without feeling disconnected from her as a counselor. I would recommend Annie to anyone who needs someone to talk to and assist with discovering you again.
Annie is an easy person to talk to, and a patient listener who goes at your pace. She's been a helpful guide in navigating some truly byzantine complications in my past, and for that I am grateful.
She's a great person to talk to. Its really helping finally being able to talk to someone about everything thats happening in my life and you can update her if something changes in an instant. Not only that but seeing as I'm rarely alone being able to text her and not let everything out in public other the phone is really nice.
I was struggling with life and thoughts and needed to try something. I wasn't expecting much when I decided to try therapy, but Annie Milam turned that thought around. Annie is someone I feel that I can trust to hear me. She helps me to see for myself, that life can be better. It has only been a few weeks, but already I see a light and path through my confusion, conflict and pain. Thank you Annie!
Annie is helpful, attentive, observant, and reassuring. I find her very easy to talk to. She is professional and also prompt to answer texts and questions. I have tried live chats and live video - both worked great with Annie. She is also non-judgmental and positive. Every session helps and ends well, with me feeling more relaxed and positive.
Annie is very professional and keeps an open mind about what you and your specific needs are. She works with you to help you find a solution that fits your specific needs.
Annie has been wonderful! Responds immediately and has offered suggestions that have helped me immensely. She is kind and caring and very easy to talk to. Highly recommend!
Very competent and professional; she really seems to care about addressing any and all concerns that I have. Always available she encourages conversation my sharing whenever I feel the need. Highly recommended. In fact my sister signed up last night upon my urging and rave reviews of my experiences so far with my counselor.
I've only been doing this for a week but Annie has really helped me out so much already. The best thing about her is her attention to detail. I often send her long messages updating her about my issues and she seems to remember everything I have said. She keeps track of my case and knows it well because she really pays attention and cares. So far everything is great
So far our sessions have been very helpful! I have really enjoyed working with Annie. She is helping me through a tough time, and she's extremely attentive and responsive. I would recommend Annie to anyone.
Annie manages to reach a pin point quickly and concisely. I'm surprised at how quickly she's managed to help me center my thoughts and feelings. Her compassion and respect for her patients are palpable.
