Dr. Wiig is the most friendly and knowledgeable therapist I’d spoken to on this app. I had a three month subscription, and it seemed that every week or two I’d be changing counselors because they weren’t really listening to me or they just didn’t show up to our sessions. But Dr. Wiig was the one I’d been searching for.
She really listened to what I said, and worked on what I wanted to work on. She’s incredibly understanding and didn’t push anything I wasn’t comfortable with. I’d recommend her to anyone who has had trouble with anxiety or depression, because she really knows her stuff.

Dr. Wiig has been amazing! She was always quick to respond and was spot on with her insights. I don't know how i would have made this difficult time in my life without her kind words and the great tools she gave me to cope with and accept everything going on. I would whole heartedly recommend her to any seeking help.

It's only been a few short weeks, but I feel like I already feel like therapy with Dr. Wiig is probably the best I've had so far. As someone who has had not so great experiences with counselors in the past (in person) I was skeptical. But she made me feel comfortable right away and shows a lot of compassion and concern. I'm very happy that I get to work with her.
