She is just there, that's all that matters. She respects my time, and I respect hers. We communicate in multiple ways at our own discretion, it just works for me!

I’ve had a couple video sessions with Darcie and some online chat here and there and I really feel comfortable expressing myself. I enjoy that I can be laid back and not feel so formal and sanitized and she’s had some great insights. My favorite thing about the insights is how gentle she is when she’s going to tell me something. She barely has scratched the surface of my issues but already has made me feel seen and heard and that has been greatly helpful

Darcie makes me feel seen. She makes me feel safe to confront what I need to confront and gives the tools to do it.

Very personable, and helpful in figuring out how to better cope with the issues I'm having. Also very pleasant to talk with, and gives tips and helpful excersizes to utilize.

Darcie is awesome!

Written by E.L. on Jun 13, 2022 after therapy with Darcie for 1 year and 2 months on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, relationship issues, trauma and abuse, intimacy-related issues, and self esteem

Darcy's experience has been so helpful for me. Helping me understand my challenges when I am struggling and giving me a different perspective. She has great ideas, and weekly she sends out some homework for me, that helps keep me engaged throughout the week and to continue working on my goals outside of our sessions.

Darcie has been awesome, she also relates to a lot of my passions and understands them which helps. She is always looking for info to give to me around my concerns and shares any insight she finds helpful. I was honestly one or two more therapist from giving up on Better Help but when I found Darcie she clicked really well.

I would highly recommend her to anyone. It feels like I am talking to someone who is genuine, compassionate, and actually cares about me and my concerns.

I'm so happy I made the decision to use betterhelp. My therapist has taken the time to get to know me and help give me the right tools to help with my circumstances.

Written by S.A. on Dec 09, 2021 after therapy with Darcie for 7 months on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, and parenting issues

Darcie is truly one of the best people I have ever met in my life and she has helped me tremendously. I can’t thank her enough!

Written by B.E. on Nov 21, 2021 after therapy with Darcie for 2 months on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, addictions, lgbt, intimacy-related issues, self esteem, career difficulties, and coping with life changes

Darcie takes the time to understand what I need help with. She offers a great perspective, and great advice. She is very understanding of when I am pushing to work on myself and when I just need a break to take things a bit slower.

Darcie takes time to create a personalized plan for me, and takes time to research topics that are helpful to me to offer personalized resources, goals, and all-in-all personalized therapy to help me with my specific needs. She even admits when she needs to do a bit more research on a topic so that she can offer the best help possible. I respect that a lot.

I would recommend her to anyone who needs a therapist to listen, understand, not judge, and work with their specific needs, without using a coockie-cutter approach.

I appreciate Darcy so much. I needed a neutral third party to be honest and frank with me, and she has given me the feedback and printing when I need it.

Written by S.T. on Jul 23, 2021 after therapy with Darcie for 2 weeks on issues concerning stress, anxiety, parenting issues, and self esteem

Darcie is wonderful. She listens, validates my feelings, and offers helpful suggestions for my life. She makes the most of our time in sessions and also between sessions via messaging. In the short time that I’ve been talking to her I feel more confident moving throughout my life.

I like Darcie - 100% ... How was I SO lucky to have her?

Written by M.I. on Jul 19, 2021 after therapy with Darcie for 2 weeks on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, relationship issues, family conflicts, trauma and abuse, grief, intimacy-related issues, parenting issues, self esteem, and coaching

Though our relationship has only been going on a few weeks and she is still learning about me and I about her I am already feeling that I made the correct decision reaching out. While I have yet to get into every facet of myself I feel confident in saying so. I feel heard by someone who has the experience and expertise to help me on this journey of self improvement.

Darcie has a light and warm persona and gives you exactly what you need at the time. She is direct and honest, which I love, and has given me so much perspective in a short amount of time. Very insightful and conscientious, she is highly recommended!

Written by K.E. on May 24, 2021 after therapy with Darcie for 2 weeks on issues concerning trauma and abuse, grief, and parenting issues

I've only been working with Darcie for a short period of time, but I can immediately feel how knowledgeable and caring she is. I love that I don't feel like just another session to her... I am a person and she respects and holds that. As I've been exploring some 'old' things that have resurfaced, Darcie has been an invaluable resource on this journey!

Written by E.L. on May 10, 2021 after therapy with Darcie for 2 weeks on issues concerning stress, anxiety, addictions, trauma and abuse, and coping with life changes

I e had a hard time in the past with counseling, but Darcie has really made this experience a positive one. And not because she’s telling me everything is going to be ok and just asks prodding questions, but because she listens and is very real. I truly appreciate the help she has already been able to provide in just a couple of sessions and conversations.

Written by K.I. on May 08, 2021 after therapy with Darcie for 2 weeks on issues concerning stress, anxiety, relationship issues, grief, self esteem, and coping with life changes

I highly recommend Darcie as a counselor, especially to handle complex issues surrounding specific phobias as well as general anxiety.

Darcie has been a real support in my times of needs, shes very supportive and understanding of the struggles I've went through. I found comfort in her similarly to that of an older sister that I never had.
