These quotes represent just a few of the many positive reviews that we have received for Joanne Mercier. 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.
In my two sessions with Joanne, I already feel heard and validated and on the road to recovery.
Joanne is very kind, understanding, and compassionate. She helped me gain a lot of insight on things that I was struggling with. Overall a 10/10 experience!
Joanne is a lovely and kind therapist that listens intentively. She's supportive and provides good coping mechanics to calm your mind and prepare you for anything.
Joanne is great! I really appreciate her listening to me and giving me support.
I am so happy that I chose Joanne as a therapist. She is always on time and makes the session very productive. She is genuine and I feel we have a connection that allows me to be open with how I feel and this has helped me tremendously. I feel we have made some great progress this week, but I must continue to work on myself with her help!
As my first experience with therapy and a therapist, I believe its been the best one, Joanne has helped me tremendously and Ive only been in therapy for a couple of months
In the 6 weeks that I’ve been receiving counseling with Joanne I’ve overcome some huge obstacles and worked through some deep seated personal and relationship issues. Joanne has been supportive, kind, thoughtful and has provided me with techniques, homework, insight and feedback that suited my personal experience. She’s warm, personable and easy to talk to. Highly highly recommend her as a counseler
