Dr. Greta did an amazing job with guiding me to learn about Boundaries and Self-Care being some of the stepping stones to Becoming Your Best Self!

I had to shuffle threw a few different therapists, you won’t always get a perfect match right away but this is not a bad thing. I knew from my first session with Greta that she was going to be very easy to talk to, and seeing how I’ve been using the Better help app for a few months I can honestly say that Greta has helped me improve myself and in doing so my life has slowly started to show improvement

Better help was my first try with therapy. I had my first therapist and didn't vibe with them. I switched and got Greta and she really goes above and beyond. I love her messages throughout the week. They really lift me up and remind me that I am working on myself and to be kind and patient with myself

Greta is professional, experienced, and a great listener. I came to Greta with a history of eating disorders and alcohol dependence. She never made me feel judged or self-conscious. Our sessions feel like I’m talking to a good friend.

Written by S.T. on Oct 31, 2021 after therapy with Greta for 2 weeks on issues concerning stress, anxiety, family conflicts, parenting issues, and anger management

This is my first time reaching out for therapy/counselling, so initially I had some skepticism in matching with a therapist that’s right for me. Greta is exactly the type of therapist I was needing/looking for. Very thankful for her help!

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.

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.

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 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.
