Dee is so nice, and very easy to talk to.
She is nice. She talks a lot about her self a lot sometimes. Like half our therapy. Does not ask me enough questions about my self sometimes.
I felt at ease with Dee and very comfortable. Video conference was easy. She is great at connecting and understanding my issues.
Dee has an easy going nature and a conversational style that really made me feel comfortable and encouraged to open up.
I am grateful that I was able to work with Dee as she is so comforting to talk to and can relate to a lot of the things I experience. I felt like I could really open up and she was so understanding and supportive throughout our sessions. Thank you Dee and I recommend her to anyone looking for a great therapist.
Dee McLellan-Sam is a good listener. She is compassionate. I would recommend her for sure.
Just after one meeting I already feel seen and listened too.
she’s been amazing, extremely caring, and just there for you it’s amazing
So far i feel pleased with my first ever experience with any counselor. Dee has been both professional and compassionate
Dee was a wonderful person to talk with. She was very kind, and a great listener. She was able to help me pinpoint some of the root causes of my stress and anxiety this past year and simplify the steps that I could take to help manage a healthier lifestyle. She was able to connect with me personally on a few topics which always makes it nice to feel like you are not talking to a stranger. She was able to be flexible and take the call on video or phone. I would recommend her.
Dee is great. She is understanding, level headed. Supportive. Offers advice when it’s required but also knows when to just listen. I really enjoy speaking with her
