These quotes represent just a few of the many positive reviews that we have received for Lisa Cooper. 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.

I've been seeing and speaking with Lisa for three weeks now. I'm so appreciative of her style of communication and her authentic nature. She's incredibly well practiced, attentive, caring, genuine, and aware. I appreciate the way that she functions during our sessions and the amount of work that she puts into our interactions. I am in love with BetterHelp, and at the core of that, that's thanks to Lisa. I can't wait to continue to explore and grow on my therapy journey with her as my guide!

Lisa Cooper and I communicate at least one time a week. She makes sure that she addresses each of my concerns mentioned in my response. She is always respectful of my feelings and guides me to investigate possible solutions that might help, rather than "telling" me what strategy I should use for personal growth. Lisa is very compassionate, experienced and insightful. She is always spot on with her confirmation of my feelings and my grief. Losing a loved one who died by suicide makes the grief process more complicated. I am so glad to have a counselor who "gets it". There is an old me and a new me, and Lisa is helping me learn how to figure out how I can navigate relationships and my grief so that I grow stronger and more mindful of my feelings.

I have met with Lisa only a couple of times but I can tell you that just in those two sessions my anxiety has gone down 100 fold... Lisa gets it.. Lisa has empathy... Lisa expertly responds with very pointed resources and guidance that is helpful and does not add to the trauma but lowers the traumatic effects I am experiencing in my current everyday life. I feel extremely grateful to have found her

Lisa is so wonderful. Truly the first time I’ve felt that a therapist has “gotten me” so many breakthroughs in the short time that I was with her before I had to change because of a move. Can not recommend highly enough.
