I have been with Erica for over a year, prob like 2 now! She has offered so much sound counsel and wisdom, things I can put into practice to make changes and grow and heal. And I am.:) And its helping my children as well..
Fantastic, this has been truly life changing, she’s my guardian angel on my phone
I grew up believing therapy was useless and a waste of time. I did not need people, especially friends, a girlfriend and a wife. Offspring was not an option. The rationale was that I could not trust anyone but myself. Regardless, I could live a happy life in solitude. Naturally, I adopted antisocial attitudes. For much of my teens and twenties, I took massive pride in being an “antisocial” individual. I did not see an antisocial personality as being a passing adolescent phase, but rather as a way to protect myself from what I believed was a dog-eat-dog world.
I have been talking to Erica for a year and a half, and over time, I have discovered that the world is a beautiful place and that most people are goodhearted. Moreover, I have learned that I am a people person. I used to think of myself as The Grinch, extremely bitter about the happiness I saw in others’ friendships and romance. I was bitter because I thought those joys were out of reach, but I later found that I was simply depriving myself of them. For the longest time, I thought I did not need those things. I still do not believe that I need them, but I will say that the people who are already in my life have brought me much happiness.
Also, I finally rid myself of the assumption that misery is a just way of life (it’s not). I thought that I enjoyed pain, but I told myself I enjoyed it because it was a “necessity” and therefore I needed to like it. I do not see any use in pain, anymore, and I have chosen to steer clear of people who wish to hurt me like the plague.
Moreover, my perspective on therapy has completely changed. I now see the benefits, the most important being my self-growth. I will admit that, in first seeking therapy, I wanted to be immediately fixed. I wanted to be a productive member of society. I was already was a productive member of society and just had massively low self-esteem. Self-confidence is still not one of my strengths, but I love myself more than I have ever in my entire life.
That sums up my testimony for my treatment under Erica, who has helped make my life easier because she opened my eyes. I did not need to be fixed because I was never really broken to begin with, but I would never had that epiphany without her.
Erica has been with me about a year now, she has listened at my worse times... talked me through them. She has helped me through marriage problems. It’s been one of the toughest years in my life and because of Erica I have made it through!
Open and receptive. Really understanding, a best friend you can share everything with. I am traveling and it helps to talk to Erica. Maintenance is amazing and feels good with someone so supportive.
I have been with Erica now for over a year. She has been their for me when life was tough and helped me get through many obstacles. She has a great perspective on mental health and goals that you want to achieve. She is a great person to work with.
So great! Always looked forward to our interactions and get something out of them.
Erica is a thoughtful, caring and just plain cool individual! I feel like she truly understands and cares about me and what I'm struggling with. With her guidance and support, I know I'm getting stronger every day.
Erica has been so supportive, caring and encouraging in times when I felt lost, alone and confused with how I feel inside. Erica is such a lovely person to speak with. She has opened up a new world of things to try and explore that help with thoughts and feelings. I feel so lucky that we were matched and defiantly can say with confidence that I'm so happy I tried one more time. I am very grateful with all she is doing to hep me work through tough times and I make sure she knows it.
Pushes me and holds me accountable to my goals and desires.
She has been great helping me overcome personal challenges and helping me understand things I'm going through. She makes it feel like I'm confiding in a friend more then a counselor.
Erica is down-to-earth, easy to talk to and is a great listener!
I did not expect this experience with BetterHelp and Erica to be SO much better than all of my previous experiences in treatment. This is different. So much more helpful for me. I am making real changes, finally, and I do not think I would be able to do this w/o Erica and BetterHelp.
I think Erica is amazing, she always makes me feel valued and listened to. She's very warm and doesn't judge.
Erica is really easy to talk.
Erica is a breath of fresh air. She's managed to form a bond with me that has me considering letting down my guard. She knows how to make me laugh, which is incredibly therapeutic for me at the moment. I've talked to several other therapists, some for a quite a while, but I never felt as comfortable or open with them as I do in my short time working with Erica. I've already been able to tell her things I'd thought would die with me. Erica treats me like I'm important to her and like she honestly cares about me; that's something I've rarely experienced in my life. It can be unnerving to think about the work I've got ahead of me, but with Erica by my side, I feel confident that I'll be able to heal and come out of this process a little better off than when I began it.
Erica is such a good listener, kind, thorough in her responses, and flexible.
Just so easy to talk to. So comforting when I can just let everything out and she knows how to help you work through it.
Erica has helped me in the past and I am so grateful to be able to look to her to get me through some rough patches again. She is so approachable, it is very easy to open up to her. There is no judgment and she genuinely cares.
Erica can listen to almost anything without making judgment and is great at giving constructive feedback when needed
Ms. Mau is incredibly patient and non-judgmental. She actively listens to me and checks in with me. I would definitely recommend her to others. I've had problems talking face to face with other therapists due to my own struggles with anxiety. This format and especially Ms. Mau's manner really helps to alleviate that obstacle.
Erica is the best. She is very open to everything and has that aura that is very kind and ready to listen without judgement and it just makes you want to start pouring everything out. She asks you questions that get you thinking and she has done wonders with me and all my problems just by being there. I couldn't ask for anyone better. This platform is blessed to have her, and I am too!
I've been pretty absent because of personal problems, but I've felt every message I've sent, despite how few they may be, have been well analyzed and properly answered to. I wouldn't even know how to understand myself, but Dr. Mau's contact with me has been really helpful so far.
Erica is fantastic professional, easy to communicate, confident and able to provide substantive help and advise.. that I follow willingly. Giving me realistic picture of myself.
Erica is great. So understanding, polite and non-judgemental. You can talk to her about anything. I will surely reach out again. :-)
Erica has helped me in more ways than I can express. She's a sincere, helpful and knowledgeable professional. I can't express how much I appreciate her role in helping me become a better person and work through my issues.
I love her!
Erica is the best.
Erica is there for me whenever I need her. At first I was nervous about being honest with a stranger, but I soon realized that in sessions with Erica, it's a judgement-free zone. She has made me feel understood and offered ways to cope with my anxieties. She gives me multiple options for communicating with her, and she always responds to me quickly and thoughtfully. Signing up for better help has been the best thing I've done this year!
Very friendly and easy to talk to. Replies quickly and cares about my issues.
Erica is a wonderful person with whom I could confide in. I appreciate her sense of humor and unconditional love during our sessions. I’m learning to be a stronger person and to accept myself and others.
Erica has really helped me and she quickly understood my issues, and helped me get to work on them. I've had a lot of counsellors in the past so i know a good counsellor - Erica ticks all the boxes.
Erica has been great! I felt comfortable sharing things with her and could count on prompt replies. Her messages were soothing and action-based - suggestions that I could actually do to help the situation. Would definitely recommend!
I feel the thing I love about Erica being my counselor is how involved she is in the conversation and my circumstances. She knows how to lead the conversation to the right places without introducing any awkwardness or discomfort. Great insight and just effective solutions.
I’ve only been talking with Erica for a few short weeks now, but it’s one of the better decisions I made. I get responses in a timely manner, when I overstress about everything Erica has a way of making me rethink things in a calmer manner. I couldn’t be happier with my decision to sign up with BetterHelp and couldn’t be happier with the counsellor I was given!
I have been talking with Erica for about 3 weeks now and I have to say that she has been such a great counselor to talk to. She is very personable and can relate to me better than any other counselor I have had. She asking a lot of questions that make me think but gives me some great perspectives that have helped my day to day in just a short time. I look forward to continuing my sessions with her and I recommend her for sure.
Erica is a good listener and gives good advice and help. She always checks on me from time to time. I even felt that she is even more available than I am. :) which makes me feel glad that whenever I need her she’s available.
Amazing and caring! Very helpful!
Erica is extremely helpful, respectful, and gives wonderful one-on-one support. She is available in a variety of ways - however is accessible, convenient, and comfortable for her clients, and has great suggestions and exercises. I love working with her! I highly recommend her for anyone seeking support.
Erica is warm, caring, patient and compassionate but also just the right amount of challenging to make sure you're still working and getting the most out of therapy. She has been an incredible suppport through a very stressful and difficult time in my life. I can't recommend her enough.
Erica has been so wonderful! She is very receptive and responsive! She is very encouraging and complimentary of my accomplishments and aspirations. I would recommend her to anyone who needs an understanding but constructive counsel!
Erica is really an Excellent Counselor! She listens to whatever you want to discuss and responds to it very politely. She is super responsive, polite and on top of all very understanding. Highly recommended. :)
Erica Mau is a wonderfully professional therapist who's experience in the field shows well. She has a problem solving approach, and is very good at obtaining and giving answers. I would highly recommend her to anyone, but especially to first time therapy goers who are unsure if therapy will be helpful. She will show through her actions and words just how effective it can be.
I love how real Erica is. She lets me have a sense of humor about some really hard situations, and is able to laugh with me. She listens to what I'm saying (and what I'm not saying), rather than making assumptions about what my experience or feelings would be. I really appreciate her!
Thank you Erica!
Erica is full of encouragement and good advice. Right away, she made me feel comfortable sharing everything that's going on in my life. She tells me exactly what I need to hear to get back on track and face my challenges head on. Thank you so much for your wonderful support!
Wow!! Erica has helped me so much. Really can't thank her enough. She is a true professional. Thank you, Erica! I am excited for more counsel in the future!
It's only been a two weeks but I do feel like talking with Erica has really helped me with my trust issues. I feel better talking to my friends and family since Erica made me realize it's alright to share and people won't judge you.
Erica is great! Always responds very quickly and understands when I don't have time to respond.
Started using the service a couple of months ago. Really impressed with my counsellor and the overall experience using the app.
The way you can access your session from any place at any time has been of great use to me.
My counsellor Erica has been wonderful, very open minded, understanding and helpful.
I would highly recommend that anyone who needs to talk about something try Better Help.
If you're matched with Erica know you're in good hands =)
Erica has been helpful as talking through issues my family is dealing with without having to make time for traditional counseling appointments.
Erica has been very kind and patient. We didn't end up working together as I had to cancel my membership, but she seems like a very loving, caring and helpful counselor. If I sign back up, I am hoping to start working with her again.
Erica is an amazing support system. She's excellent at making you feel like the most important person in the world to her in that moment. Better than my therapist I can see in person, I'd rather talk to Erica!
Erica is so kind and really listens and considers what you are saying. She is a great person.
Erica's a great counselor.
Erica has helped me immensely. Her genuine empathy and skilled technique delved to the heart of the problem to assist you in gaining clarity and propel you forward to better choices. I recommend her highly :)
Erica is great . I've only been talking to her for a few weeks but has already helped me recognize issues I never recognized previously within myself.
Erica was amazing and very helpful with my problem.. Always there to help! Will use this again for sure..
Erica has been amazing, she is so patient and kind but also tells me when she thinks I am wrong. I appreciate her honesty and how much she cares.
Great advices and good examples, stories, tests, and a lot of patience.
She is the best!
Absolutely INCREDIBLE. Lifts my spirit, self esteem, confidence, super kind, helpful and friendly. With a short amount of time, she's already encouraged and helped me in many ways. Thank You Erica!
Erica is a wonderful person. She was very understanding, however, she would not let me wallow in self pity. She would continually bring me around to what positive steps that I could take to be at peace and to have success in my life. I really feel like my communication with Erica helped me to make a huge decision in my life that helped me succeed and renewed my strength to press on. Thank you Erica.
