Greta Brooks is Great my 1st session with her made me feel comfortable and gave me good tools to start my way back to normalcy. She understands and relates to you . The quotes of encouragement re really helpful as well.

Amazing. I adore working with Greta. I feel like she always has my back and that I’m in a safe space. I have made such wonderful progress, and my family has noticed what a difference my therapy has made for me. Thank you Greta!

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.
