Esther Youngman (Ruthie) is an exceptional therapist. She is sensitive, insightful, and extremely kind. She understands my problems and checks in regularly. I've found her words of solace and encouragement very comforting. I feel lucky to be matched with her.

Esther has been very helpful and responsive to my questions. I feel comfortable communicating with her even though it is on line and not in person. The worksheets have been very helpful.

So far, Esther is doing an amazing job at supporting my needs in a counselor. She listens very well and is patient with letting me discuss whats on my mind. When she responds, I feel more confident and she is helpful.

She is incredibly supportive and has adapted to my needs. I have only been with her for two weeks but she is already the best therapist I have had.
