Reviews

These quotes represent just a few of the many positive reviews that we have received for Lisa Mazzotti. 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 appreciate Lisa'a assistance and her friendship. She has helped me in so many ways - -I was a mess - loss of family members (all family members have passed away) - she helps me keep perspective and moving forward.
She is a wonderful HUMAN BEING who cares for others.

Lisa is a great therapist, reaches out in a timely fashion and I always feel heard. She provides great guidance and the homework each week is always helps. For me the homework helps me feel on track and I can see the growth from first session to now.

Lisa is incredible! From our very first session I felt she quickly understood my concerns and we came up strategies I was able to immediately implement with good effect. I look forward to our continued work together! Highly recommend her to all.

I have had only 1 session with Lisa and the 1 time I did meet with her I was instantly comfortable and just let a lot out, I felt like I was speaking to a friend. I hope to continue to grow in my time with her.
