Lisa Scott is a great therapist. I honestly feel like she took her time to listen to my issues, find ways to help me cope with them and surmount them. Although my time with her was brief (due to my own financial issues), it was nice having someone to talk to. She's a great listener

Lisa has been great, and I chalk it up to luck more than anything. My first therapist through BetterHelp turned out to be a wash, and I was quickly matched with Lisa. She really understands my situation, and has the professional experience to back up her knowledge and suggestions. It has really helped me in these challenging days.
