Dr. Lockton has helped me grow so much as a person. I was hesitant at first to just let anyone in but she has helped me to challenge myself in new ways. I’m currently learning to set boundaries with my brother. I’d recommend her to anyone I know who I think could benefit.

My experience with Dr. Lockton was extremely positive. She certainly didn't just check a box or just tell me what I wanted to hear, she listened and responded in a way I knew she heard and understood me. I have already recommended Betterhelp to a co-worker and told her what a great experience I had with Dr. Lockton. I also appreciate Dr. Lockton checking in just to see how I'm doing.
