I felt connected with her right out of the gate. Her warm welcome as well as how aware she is of what you’re saying. She hears me and repeats its back, allows me to hear what I said, out loud. Then discusses how I/we can work through that. I’m so happy with her :)

I really enjoy speaking with Betty.
I was very nervous about speaking to a therapist at first as this was a new experience for me. But, I am thankful that my wife recommended Betty to me. Betty is wise and caring and I feel like she can really relate to me.
I am very comfortable speaking and sharing with Betty and I am thankful that we have her in our family.
