Denise Doster is amazing, knowledgeable and such a great listener. I am so thankful to have been assigned to her. She is really a huge part of my healing process currently and I don’t know where I would be without her and betterhelp. So grateful for both this service and for her!

I haven’t worked with her long, but in the time I have she has been validating and empathetic. I feel like I can really talk to her about what I’m dealing with and will get not just an understanding ear but also someone who can offer me ideas of how to handle what I’m going through. She is an excellent social worker and I would recommend her.

I'm not a very open person but I feel very comfortable in talking with Denise. Thus far I would continue with my sessions! She is great.

Written on Feb 13, 2016 after therapy with Denise for 3 months on issues concerning stress, anxiety, family, eating, self esteem, anger, career, and depression

Denise is absolutely amazing and so easy to talk to. Within the first week of counseling I was feeling like a new person! Over the past few weeks she has helped me work through my struggles to overcome the trauma and after effects of years of abuse. She has helped me feel stronger, more confident, and given me a sense of renewed hope.
