These quotes represent just a few of the many positive reviews that we have received for Karen Thorpe. 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.
She is the best. Very compassionate and understanding. She is very easy to talk to.
On our last session ending just over a year of therapy, Karen read back through all of the goals I had laid out at the beginning of our session. In a very special moment, I got to reflect on how much I had grown, and how far I had come in making progress toward and beyond those goals. It is very clear how much Karen cares about the people she works with and shows it in very meaningful ways, like remembering small details from your week or celebrating even the subtlest successes. I have been through my fair share of therapy, and can confidently say that Karen is an incredible therapist. I tackled my depression, anxiety, grief and more and am not just "okay" now, but instead feel genuinely and deeply peaceful and happy. I would highly recommend Karen.
I look forward to our conversations and always feel listened to.
Karen is amazing, she listens to me and all my issues and always has a way of making me feel like i can conquer anything no matter how big or small it may be.
Karen is sharp. She understands things quickly and gets right to the point. She's capable and I'm sticking with her.
I just started with Karen, but I already feel a connection to her style. She is a wonderful listener and gives suggestions of actions to take between sessions. I look forward to each session with her.
Karen is kind, understanding and listens well. She is able to break through all of my thoughts down to basic core principles that are actionable. I’ve already noticed changes in my life. Thank you Karen
Karen is a skilled listener and a skillful counselor - it's been a pleasure working with her.
I found Karen Thorpe to be an excellent counselor. She had insight that I did not have and really helped me to see and understand what my issues were. The few sessions that I had with her helped me tremendously.
Karen is fantastic and has helped me so
Even after just one session with Karen I am excited to start this journey. I love how much experience she has. I felt like she was able to understand my current issues and I loved how she began mapping out a plan to working through everything. I’m very excited to see where this all goes.
Karen’s insights and simple-to-follow strategies for managing through my traumatic experiences and related mental health struggles have been invaluable. She is kind and attentive. Provides meaningful support and makes you feel capable and strong in the face of pain. Karen has been able to see all parts of me, parts of me nobody has ever seen. And the “things” I’ve felt diminished by or powerless from I now feel empowered by. I am who I am because of my experiences. And I can continue on in a healthy, powerful and (most importantly) healed way because of her guidance. Karen. Thank you from the bottom of my heart.
