Even thou I have only had one session, I have never felt as if anyone would be able to help me in my life more than Dr. Gagan Luthra. So far Dr. Luthra has given me some very helpful tools and some insurance that I can get through this with the help of her and that we have a game plan in mind! Based off her credentials and the time I have spent talking to her, I feel she is the best therapist I have ever been with in my life! 5/5 review!!
Dr. Luthra helped me understand the issues I was dealing with and how to deal with my family's relationship after losing a loved one. She is a great listener and provides sound advice and professional insight. I feel much better after two weeks of therapy with her. I felt very comfortable speaking with her.
Doctor Luthra was so very helpful. She made me feel very comfortable talking to her. I recommend her to everyone who needs a great therapist.
I respect Dr. Luthra's opinion, she listens well and supports my ideas and advises me on what to look out for. So far so good!
She is very attentive and helpful, she’s very pleasant
I had a profoundly insightful session with Dr. Luthra. I am in my 30s and this was my first ever therapy session. She was attentive, precise, professional, and has a great cultural understanding.
I have been working with Dr. Luthra for a few weeks now. Mainly focusing on relationship issues. From our sessions, I’ve learned so much about myself. I have learned that I need to start setting boundaries with people and work which I didn’t even think was affecting me, and based off all of Dr. Luthra’s recommendations as long as you put the work in you will see a change in yourself and the people around you.
I was very closed off and didn’t want to be open with a People closest to me. Dr. Lutheran made me realize that communication is key in any relationship. She gave me a small exercises to work on with my husband that has been really beneficial to our relationship.
Not only has Dr. Luthra Been very supportive, she’s very easy to talk to. She’s very open minded and I never felt judged speaking about things I never thought I was speak about out loud.
BetterHelp app is very supportive as well. The journal injuries make me think about things that I would’ve never of thought about, and the group therapy sessions are amazing.
I will be continuing my journey with Dr. Luthra to continue to work on my relationships, aspirations, self image, and more!
Believe me I know it’s hard to take the first steps to get help. But, I am so happy that I did. It has honestly been life changing.
Dr. Luthra is a phenomenal therapist and does a great job of listening to the issues and addressing them head on. I really enjoy the sessions and always look forward to them
Dr Luthra is really great. She’s compassionate but straight forward as well. I’ve been in and out of therapy for a long time, and this is the first time I think it’s really helped.
Dr. Luthra is very sensitive to my cultural concerns, and displays significant understanding in that area.
I have been in and out of therapy for 4 years, never finding a therapist who truly helped me dig deep to find the root of issues that triggered me. I struggle with anxiety and Dr. Luthra’s extensive knowledge is amazin. She has been helping me so much and helps me see things from a logical yet warm and scientific viewpoint. She really knows the ins and outs of how our minds work. If you’re hesitant to starting therapy, I hope you come across this review and give Dr. Luthra a chance to help you. She is wonderful!
