Written by Z.A. on Aug 05, 2020 after counseling with Carolyn for 5 months on issues concerning depression, grief, and coping with life changes

I’ve been working with Carolyn for a few months now and I feel that she’s a wonderful therapist. She listens and allows me to go at my own pace, without prompting me, she allows me to discuss as much or as little as I wish, but it’s not difficult to be upfront with Carolyn during my sessions. Our sessions are a safe place for me and I’m so happy I found Carolyn and BetterHelp!
