She is an amazing person that has a ton of knowledge! I completely trust her and have felt so much better since talking to her

Greta listens to me and understands me, she helps me to identify that stressing isn't always the same, and what my peace means to me, and how I am mom in my home, and take back responsibility of that.

Greta is so helpful. She empathetically listens, gives me real feedback, and makes the whole process fun. I can’t recommend her highly enough.

Before connecting with Greta I was ready to quit better help. The counselors I matched with before either did not make me feel heard or never had availability and Greta was my last attempt. Since connecting with her I have seen great improvement in my confidence and happiness. I am happy to have someone that allows me to feel through and validate my emotions so we can get to the bottom of why I might be feeling them. I am very grateful to have Greta as my counselor.

Greta is a great listener and likes to dig down to the big issues at hand. I really like doing the homework she gives me to self reflect on everything that might be causing me stress. It helps me identify what I need to work on.

I have not had many sessions yet with Greta, but so far she has been very positive and supportive. I love the daily messages she sends and I look forward to my sessions with her.

Written by J.A. on Aug 04, 2021 after therapy with Greta for 2 weeks

I am absolutely thrilled to be working with Greta. Although I have only had 1 session so far, I am certain I am on the right path. She understood me and what I wanted to get out of this. I look forward to our next session.

She is amazing! A true down to earth Woman who whole heartedly wants to engage and help, As much as she treats you as a client she also treats you like a friend, strike that like a brother or sister. She is honestly hands down THE BEST COUNSELOR I have ever seen and I’ve only had two sessions.

Great is the bees knees!

Greta's great, she's been doing this longer than I've had a heartbeat, and I'm happy to talk to her every week. I felt I should talk to my therapist like a friend, and I'm able to talk to her like a friend :)

Greta makes me feel better about what's going on in my life. It's only been a few sessions but I feel like we are making great progress. The tips and tools provided by her are helping me move forward.

Greta Brooks is great!! She has helped me look into the depth of me and helped me see a my short commings and realize how and where I can change my way of thinking instead of blaming others.

She does a great job of using real life examples to assist. She listens, doesn’t judge and offers advice.

She is very understanding. Takes her time. Doesn't rush it. The exercises help a lot and she provides feedback. Listens attentively. I may have more to say in the coming weeks. This review is not complete.

Greta has been great to me!!

Greta has been amazing. She is a great listener and is able to pick out and prioritize my needs, tackeling each issue a layer at a time. I came to her in a deep downward spiral and together we dug out of that in a short amount of time. Highly recommend.

Just starting counseling here on Better Help and with Greta Brooks.
I have really enjoyed how easy it is to use.
Ive done counseling int he past and I have to say that I am very pleasantly surprised with how Greta made me feel like I was talking to a wise family member or friend. She has a down to Earth approach and a sense of humor which I appreciate so much.
