My therapist is amazing. Speaking with her is like talking to a best friend but better. I can trust the guidance she gives because of spiritual wisdom and wisdom on how to cope with the things of life.

In just one session with Dawn, I feel seen, heard, understood, validated and genuinely cared about. She is down to earth, kind, warm and compassionate. But she’s also honest & up front, so I’m glad to know that she’s truthful rather than just coddling me. I’m glad that I gave BetterHelp a try, and I’m glad they assigned someone like Dawn to be my therapist!

Dawn is a very thoughtful and insightful therapist. She anticipates my needs and meets me where I am at mentally. She is a great listener and her level of expertise amazes me every time. Grieving the loss of my best friend has been one of the worst tragedies I have dealt with in my 38 years of living. She acknowledges and validates my feelings but also challenges my thought process in the most professional way. Dawn is not judgmental and she is very easy to talk to. I appreciate the homework assignments and journal entry feedback as well as her daily mental check-ins on me!
