Written by E.L. on Aug 14, 2018 after counseling with Lisa for 11 months

Lisa has zeroed in on my issues. When I think about taking a break she always finds something to challenge me.

Written by K.I. on Aug 03, 2018 after counseling with Lisa for 3 weeks on issues concerning grief

From the first email I received from Lisa I knew she understood me. I was prepared to possibly have to shop around. Lisa 's responses are kind but also make me think. She relates to me by sharing her own experiences, which makes her easy to talk to. I would not change a thing!!

Lisa is phenomenal! I was so deep in my story of "down and out", "I am a victim" and "woe is me". Lisa never judged, never made me feel as though my feeling weren't valid. She was very gentle and supportive and helped me to see that what coping mechanisms I developed as a child, were not going to serve me in my adulthood. She's an extraordinary listener, communicator and very compassionate.

Over the years, I have had several counselors I am now in my mid-50s. Lisa, by far is one of the best counselors I’ve had the privilege to work with. She has excellent listening skills, she’s appropriate with her suggestions, boundaries, and very comfortable to share with. I truly felt like I hit the jackpot when she was assigned to be my counselor. She is outstanding and very gifted In her field.

While I only messaged back and forth with Lisa for a short time, I feel she did her best to understand my needs and help me think through the problems I was having. If I needed further counseling, I would reach out to her again.

Written by J.A. on Apr 18, 2018 after counseling with Lisa for 8 months

Lisa is amazing, very consistent, organized, caring, and helps me through many life issues. There are times I feel so overwhelmed, lost and disconnected, and it is a very comforting feeling knowing Lisa is always there to guide me to exactly where I need to be. She is a blessing.

Written by M.I. on Apr 11, 2018 after counseling with Lisa for 2 months

Sometimes in life one comes across just the person one needs to. That, for me, is Lisa Stammerjohann. Her knowledge, experience, patience and most importantly her compassion have helped and meant more than I have words for. This soul is in the perfect field for her life path. I'd recommend her to one and all.

Written by K.A. on Nov 30, 2017 after counseling with Lisa for 3 months

Lisa is an amazing counselor. She is sensitive and relates to her clients. She really finds a way to put herself in your shoes and truly understand what you are going through. She responds quickly and will let you know if she will be away. I feel like I can bring up any topic and know she will be understanding and try her best to help me through it.

Written by F.E. on Nov 15, 2017 after counseling with Lisa for 2 years and 6 months on issues concerning stress, anxiety, grief, self esteem, and depression

Lisa has been my oasis in the desert which was my life. After seeking multiple routes of therapy, she and I just clicked. I came out of a very dark time with her support and empathy. She and I usually just message each other online, but if I could, I would reach through my computer and give her a huge hug, and likely start sobbing out of pure joy from meeting her face to face.

I am not crossing any professional/patient boundaries when I say this, but I absolutely love Lisa!

Lisa Stammerjohann is a skilled and compassionate counselor, whose perspective and suggestions have helped me immensely. As an adult on the Autism Spectrum, it is often difficult for me to reach a good understanding with others, but Lisa has done an amazing job of meeting me where I am and helping me find ways to improve my situation.

Written by N.I. on Oct 11, 2017 after counseling with Lisa for 2 weeks on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, and self esteem

Lisa is warm and kind and asks thought-provoking questions that have really helped me hone in on my "real" issues and make true progress. I feel I have progressed so far in such a short amount of time.

Written by S.A. on Jul 28, 2017 after counseling with Lisa for 2 months on issues concerning stress, anxiety, and relationship

Lisa is amazing. I've never done counseling over the phone, but she makes it so easy and personable. I have been seeing her for about 2 months now and she is an amazing listener and advocates for me when I don't do it for myself. She helps me to see that the negative self talk so many of us suffer from is self-inflicted and has helped me to find ways to curb that negativity into positive self-thought. She is very responsive and although our sessions are virtual I think we've developed a strong relationship and she is incredibly supportive. I'd recommend her any day :)

Lisa is very patient and kind. She is comforting and reassuring. She has helped me to identify unhealthy thoughts and habits and set goals to replace them with healthier ones.

Written by C.A on Mar 29, 2017 after counseling with Lisa for 1 month on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, and self esteem

She immediately gained my trust and confidence. She's not clinical and it doesn't feel like she's checking off a box. I'm not the "tell it all" kind of personality, but she certainly made me one. She listens, she understands, and I feel like she's a great friend. This was a good match! She's helped me so much in just a short time. Couldn't have asked for "better" help.

Written by P.A on Feb 18, 2017 after counseling with Lisa for 2 years and 3 months on issues concerning self esteem, and career

I am so glad the Better Help review system lets me leave an updated review for Lisa Stammerjohann because I have been working with her for 2 years and 4 months now and this has been one of the best *relationships* of my life. Lisa has so many gifts - she sees things so clearly and she has such a kind way of pointing them out to me. Lisa never lets me get down on myself - she reminds me of all the progress I have made and always encourages me to relax and try again. (A kindness I have NOT been in the habit of giving myself!) I didn't think I wanted to discuss my parents ... at all. I had *had enough* of them! Thanks to Lisa's very gentle questions, I do discuss them with her and that has opened up a world of peace and new understanding/connections. She helps me see why I have made the choices I've made and helps me explore whether I want to stop making them ... or keep some that do work for me. At the beginning, I just thought I wanted to find a new job. Thanks to Lisa, I have seen how many things influence each other and - more important! - how I can change my thinking to get closer to where I want to be with work and with my life. Lisa is an amazing therapist and a good person. I am very grateful to BetterHelp for providing such a fine service and I am very, very, very, very grateful to Lisa Stammerjohann for all the progress I have made in so many areas. Thank you, Lisa!

Lisa was just what I needed. She was REAL and down to earth, yet kind and caring. She helped me to stop living in denial and start being completely transparent and honest with myself. I wish that we could have continued our counseling because she was a great help!!

Written by M.E on Oct 18, 2016 after counseling with Lisa for 1 year on issues concerning trauma and abuse, intimacy-related, and eating

Lisa is really caring and open to hearing what you have to say. She will reach out to you and patiently/kindly see how you are doing if you find yourself in a rut and not reaching out. I don't think she would give up on you.

Written by K.K on Oct 05, 2016 after counseling with Lisa for 2 months on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, addictions, trauma and abuse, grief, intimacy-related, anger, career, and bipolar

Lisa is giving me tools to help me manage my emotions and she has helped me make sense of the pain of losing a parent and myself. Lisa is patient and shows real empathy.

Written by J.O on Aug 13, 2016 after counseling with Lisa for 2 months on issues concerning stress, anxiety, grief, sleeping, self esteem, and depression

Lisa is fantastic! She is non judgemental and she gives her honest opinion.
I felt so comfortable talking to her and I never felt uneasy to tell her anything.
When I was in some difficult situations she knew how to turn those situations into positive outcomes. She always had a way to turn it to a positive note.
I also liked how she shared her experiences of her own personal life with me to show that she too has also dealt with this and how she overcame it.
She always gave me confidence and so much support that she made me feel like a better person.
Thank you Lisa for all your help! You were the light at the end of the tunnel
that kept me going and not to give up.

Lisa made my feel safe, secure and understood. She created an easy and pleasant experience with I greatly value. She is personable and real. :)

Written by K.E on May 20, 2016 after counseling with Lisa for 2 months on issues concerning stress, anxiety, self esteem, career, and depression

I think Lisa is probably the best kind of therapist you can ask for. I'll keep my reasons very short and direct.
1) She moved to my pace (which was very fast)
2) She is down to earth and not judgmental.
3) She listened and processed what i had to say (which was a lot) before replying.
4) She has been through her share of #@(!! which in my opinion is necessary to help others with theirs.
5) She is patient
6) She was someone I actually wanted to open up to, and was never at any point openly frustrated at.
7) She will adapt if you don't like what she is saying or her method

These points make her more than just an adequate therapist. I think it puts her in the upper ranks of leading therapists and coaches to actually know how to reach people, and induce/inspire change.

Written by A.M on Apr 27, 2016 after counseling with Lisa for 3 weeks on issues concerning stress, anxiety, eating, parenting, self esteem, anger, and depression

I just love Lisa! In a very short amount of time, we have addressed my biggest issues and we are tackling them head on. She's very funny, and gentle, and understands how it feels to be a mom of special needs children. That has been a Godsend. I look forward to seeing that I have an alert from her! I finally feel like I'm growing in the right direction.

While I haven't been working with Lisa very long--and went into this a bit hesitantly--she has been great in helping guide me through some roadblocks both personally and professionally. While I probably still have a ways to go, I feel that Lisa's observations and questions will help me get on the right path to finding my answers.
