These quotes represent just a few of the many positive reviews that we have received for Greta Brooks. We don’t pay anyone to provide their review and they are all made voluntarily. Some people's experience receiving therapy with BetterHelp might be different.
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
Greta is wonderful. She’s very warm and friendly. Has made me feel comfortable very quickly, which has helped me address several things immediately. Overall, I’ve had a great experience.
Really enjoyed my first session with Greta & I’m looking forward to my next!
I have only had 1 session with Greta but can't say anything negative about my experience with her
I already have submitted a review
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.
I have the greatest confidence in Greta and am so grateful for my sessions with her
Greta is so kind and respectful. I feel listened to and she gives me great feedback. She tells me what I need to hear even when it’s not what I want to hear. She has helped me a lot. Definitely would recommend her.
Ms.Greta has guided me in so many different ways.
Greta is a great listener, very patient and caring.
Amazing listener !! Offers great advice and really wants to see me succeed and meet my goals:)
Greta is such an inspiring, confident therapist. I love that she listens, she gives me homework and I feel lighter after every session. With these past sessions she already has me seeing in a different perspective. I appreciate her so much
Greta listens to me. Provides positive words of encouragement during the week. Provides tools to help me focus on issues like life stressors being discussed
Dr. Brooks is my perfect match. She somehow delivers messages that I need to hear each and every visit. I appreciate her patience, tone, and positive energy.
I love Greta she helps a lot
Working with Greta the past few weeks has been great. After having our first video call, I felt heard and I love how she gives me homework worksheets to fill out to navigate my progress and she sends me motivational messages throughout the week that really uplifts my sports and makes me feel good.
Greta is an amazing therapist and I’d highly recommend her to anyone. She is empathetic and compassionate about her profession.
Greta is AMAZING! She is excellent at keeping a conversation moving to extract insights while also making room for you to drive parts of the conversation you need to. I look forward to our sessions together.
She’s great at what she does.
Greta is a great listener & prompter to help me listen to myself. I appreciate her guidance & thoughtfulness.
Greta Brooks is a GREAT THERAPIST. Her encouraging messeges are uplifting and to the point . Would recommend her to anyone looking for help
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!
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 wonderful to talk to. She listens! She offers positive and encouraging messages often.
She listened to me and gave great feedback!
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 absolutely love my conversations with Greta. She listens to what I need to say and helps me find ways to get thru my stress. She gives me the encouragement I need and has helped me find confidence in myself. Thank you Greta
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.
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 is such a bright light. She is a great listener and I feel comfortable talking with her.
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.
Ms. Brooks, has given me lots of support. She’s a wonderful listener a great supporter and so far she’s given me lots of strength and courage on this adventure.
Just In the past couple of weeks I’ve noticed in myself small improvements in my day to day activities, lifestyle, and even work.
I feel like I’m start ing to remember my purpose in life. Thank you.
Greta is patient, understanding and helps me understand my problems in a way that allows me to overcome them.
I love her! Amazing!
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.
Very helpful and personable
I appreciate the support you have given me in realizing some of my own flaws being able to identify them.
Greta is an incredible woman! She insipres me to be better for myself.
Greta Brooks has been so wonderful and has helped me manage my anxiety in a really brief amount of time. I would recommend her to anyone!
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.
