Dr. McGrath Fair is my second therapist on better help. First one was good, just not the right fit. You don’t always click the first time. But you really can find someone right for you. Im used to regular, weekly therapy, but the last few years have made it hard to put my mental health ahead of life stuff. This is great way to get support more quickly. Dr. McGrath Fair is such a great listener and is able to synthesize my thoughts in a way that makes everything feel less insurmountable. I’m bipolar and I have a chronic illness, so I can be a lot. But she is so kind, and patient, and caring. And she’s encouraged me to use the messenger part more (we do phone sessions; I’m an elder millennial lol), which has been surprisingly helpful. It’s like texting a friend when you’re in panic mode. Except you don’t have to worry about freaking out your friend or overwhelming them, and she replies so quickly. Not immediately, because people have lives. And always in a way that makes me feel validated and less alone with my problems.
Honestly, just the fact that I took the time to write this says more about how much I appreciate all the support and work we’ve done together. Cause I always forget to do reviews, and I’ve got a lot going on. But talking to her makes things become reasonable again. Not fixed, or gone. She reminds me of my skills and power, and struggles I’ve gotten through, so I’m confident I’ll get through this difficult time too. I really hope this doesn’t sound like a commercial. I just really like this app, and this therapist specifically. I can sit on my own couch, or lie in bed, and still get the same quality I used to get when I could afford traditional therapy. Alright, gonna wrap this up. Dr. McGrath Fair is so great for me, I hope she is for you too.
Dr. McGrath was very helpful to me while working through some issues I am having in my relationship with my wife. I will continue to use her as a resource if similar issues arise and highly recommend her services for others.
Dr. McGrath Fair is a great provider. She responds quickly and with wonderful suggestions. I feel our time was very successful and I will use her again should I have any situations where I need some assistance.
I really enjoy Dr. McGrath. She is supportive and really listens to my needs and concerns. I can tell she is educated and knows her stuff.
