Written by M.A. on Mar 16, 2019 after counseling with Cara for 2 weeks on issues concerning depression, trauma and abuse, eating disorders, and bipolar disorder

Cara helped me feel heard and supported. We used DBT and, with her support, I began to make small changes in my life. She was both empathic and empowering; she listened and understood my concerns and gave me the tools I needed to make the changes in my life that would lead to a happier and healthier life. She responded to me every day and encouraged me to keep doing the work on myself- Cara gave me the hope I needed in a time of despair. In addition, she supported me in the transition and helped me find resources I can use after we finished counseling together.

Cara is an excellent therapist, She helps me with personal and professional problems, as well as with my family and social life. She is excellent for depression, anxiety, relationship and LGBT issues. I really like her style of counseling, I have been with her for over a year. She is just as good as my face to face therapist, I highly recommend her to anybody who needs an intelligent and caring therapist who is always there for you. She works very hard for me and is very good at what she does.

Cara is very professional and has really worked hard to understand what I'm saying and respond helpfully and with compassion. She's very prompt and clearly reads what I have to say carefully and with real interest.

I had my doubts about this site. I'm not a very trusting person. Once I exchanged a couple of messages with Cara, I knew this was a great idea. I love that she is available anytime and I can tell her things as they happen. She really has managed to guide me into a path where I can "better help" myself. ( I know, corny but had to!) She's brilliant.
