I love my sessions with Laurie! She remembers all my people and corresponding baggage. BetterHelp gives me a space space to work through my own reactions and triggers in dealing with myself and others.

Laurie Siegel is the most compassionate, empathetic, understanding and attentive therapist I've ever had. She's beyond professional, patient and, I feel safe sharing what I'm going through with her. To me, trust and feeling safe sharing is so important. I would highly recommend Laurie to anyone seeking out counseling.
