These quotes represent just a few of the many positive reviews that we have received for Dawn Grogan. We don't pay anyone to provide their review and they are all made voluntarily. Some people's experience receiving therapy with BetterHelp might be different.
Dawn is such a kind and empathetic therapist. She has always let me lead the way while simultaneously pushing me to consider ways in which what I'm doing might not be in my best interest. I've grown so much with her as a therapist and I strongly urge anyone reading this to consider working with her.

Dawn is a great therapist she listens and asks open ended questions that help you to think about how to make your situation better.
