Elaine was great in our first appointment. She is quick to respond which is important especially now when it is hard to get an appointment with a counselor. I have only had one session so far.

I was very hesitant about starting this whole online therapy thing but as soon as I saw Elaine’s face on our first video call I felt at ease and knew I was in good hands!

Better help did an amazing job placing me with Elaine. I was so unsure how everything would play out , that I put off checking into counseling for a month. Once I had my first session with Elaine, I knew I made the right decision. She gave me a scene of peace , and understanding. I couldn't wrap my mind around how this counseling would help my issues. I have had weekly sessions by choice with Elaine , and I have been able to apply the tools in my life she has taught me so far. I am very grateful God as used Elaine in this field , & that are paths have crossed for the better.

Elaine is a kind and compassionate listener. She is quick to respond and talk me through the toughest of times. She has the compassion of an old friend while maintaining the neccesary boundaries of a coach and therapist. She cares about me while caring for me. She is wonderful.

I have had such a good time with Elaine. Every live session has been incredible, she really listens and remembers even the smallest details that I give her and that it itself makes me feel important and heard. She helped me through one of my darker episodes and I look forward to talking to her every week and really exploring my feelings and concerns with her. She’s amazing!

Elaine is a great listener and offers amazing guidance. I came to her very anxious and feeling isolated and with her help I was able to utilize my supports and now have healthier means of coping.
