Written by N.A. on Jan 31, 2021 after counseling with Karen for 1 year

It’s been over a year since Karen and I started counseling sessions. She’s been so amazing, thoughtful and detail oriented. She’s helped me with getting out of an abusive relationship, separation and now divorce. She follows up on every thing and checks in regularly. She’s also very insightful and helped me to come up with useful solutions for the various issues I was dealing with. I’ve learned a lot about myself in the time we’ve worked together and she’s been a great support for me during a very tumultuous period in my life.
I would recommend her with no hesitation.

As someone who has never been in counseling before, I would recommend Karen for her deep sense of empathy and understanding of ones complex everyday issues. She is patient and responds in a timely fashion, having rescheduled sessions at the very last minute to accommodate ones needs. She often asks for how things are going when I am not actively seeking help and aims to give active solutions to my problems. Never belittling them which is important.

Karen has been great helping me work through some of the stressful issues I am experiencing due to my husband's recent death. I was skeptical about online counseling, but so far, it has proven to be more helpful to me than face-to-face counseling. I can send messages when I am thinking about something - and I can read the responses whenever I am in a good place to do so.

Karen's insights, patience, maturity and experience have all been brought to bear for my benefit. I am grateful.

Written by J.E. on Aug 02, 2018 after counseling with Karen for 2 months on issues concerning stress, anxiety, and relationship

I've never worked with a therapist before. I don't have any mental illnesses or familty trauma, so I assumed I wouldn't get much out of a therapist. However, as a frustrated single woman in her 30s, I reached out to Karen hoping that she could help me recognize and improve on some of my dating patterns. As a result of our messages and phone calls, I'm breaking out of self-limiting patterns. I'm approaching my dating life in a way that's way more healthy and fun, rather than gossipy and dramatic. It feels great, and Karen has been instrumental to that change. No amount of self-help books would have gotten me to this point. I strongly recommend Karen to anyone looking for an approachable, responsive, upbeat therapist who can help them better understand themselves.

Written by J.E. on Jul 25, 2018 after counseling with Karen for 7 months on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, family, grief, and self esteem

I would recommend Karen to anyone in my life without a hesitation. She’s patient and kind, asks me great questions to get me thinking through things differently and to encourage me to engage in the conversation with her. She will send messages if I haven’t responded in a while, which is great for me to remember to touch base and get her input on what’s going on. Karen is very experienced and that is clear from the get.

Written by M.I. on Oct 13, 2017 after counseling with Karen for 2 weeks on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, grief, sleeping, self esteem, and career

Karen Fischer is simply amazing. I signed up for a month of therapy thinking I would need more than a month to sort all of the issues out. I have never done therapy and didn't really know how it works and I couldn't see anyone being able to help me if I didn't know how to help myself. Within one week I felt so much better which I honestly never imagined my life could improve so much in just one week. I highly recommend Karen she is very professional in the work she does and she responds to you relatively quickly.

Written by R.A. on Oct 11, 2017 after counseling with Karen for 3 weeks on issues concerning relationship, family, and intimacy-related

Due to my schedule, more than likely I would not be in counseling if I had to physically be in an appointment for an hour like most counseling is set up. The fact that I can write out my thoughts and send them at the time I am thinking about it. Then get an email back later which gives both of us time to collect our thoughts. It is so nice to have time to think about what Karen last said and what my current thoughts are. In the past it was difficult for me to think of everything I would want to tell a counselor in that 1 hour of face to face time. I would leave and then think of some relevant thing I wanted to discuss but it was too late, the session was over. This method works so much better for me. I have had a phone conversation with Karen also that was very helpful. Karen has recommended books that have been enlightening. She is very supportive but also has a way of getting me to examine myself and encourages personal growth. Thank you Karen.

Written by S.A. on Oct 08, 2017 after counseling with Karen for 2 weeks on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, sleeping, and self esteem

In a time when I felt completely helpless I turned to Betterhelp as my last resort and all I can say is it has exceeded my expectations. Karen Fischer has been patient and kind with me. She has made me feel as though I am the only person needing help because she responds quickly and pays close attention to my life story and current situation. I could not have asked for a better person who I've come to depend on for emotional support and emotional survival tips. Thank you Karen.

Karen Fischer is amazing. I didn't know what to expect with this program but I felt comfortable with her right away. She's so patient even when I write books to her, and I adore that. She's really helping me see why I am how I am and offers great means to figure things out from different aspects, ones that I'd not seen before. I've always been rather an "off the record" "psychologist " for friends and strangers alike and being on the other side of the" desk", now I know how everyone I have helped feels. It's amazing to have someone there who doesn't judge and helps me grow and heal. Thank you, Karen, and thank you, BetterHelp. You have helped me start to rise up from a lot of dark places. The sun is peeking out of the dark clouds.
