Written by D.A. on Oct 19, 2017 after counseling with Lisa for 3 days stress, anxiety, self esteem, and depression

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.

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.

Lisa is AMAZING! She not only tells me the norm coping skills, but other ones that normally aren't brought up that have really helped! She is kind and caring and empathetic. She is just amazing!

Lisa has listened to my issues and provided timely responses. Right now we are still on the surface but she has been spot-on.

Written by S.A. on Jul 28, 2017 after counseling with Lisa for 2 months 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 compassionate and addresses all problems of the day. She responds quickly, provides suggestions on how I can improve things that are bothering me and is interested in what's going on with me.

I'm so happy to have found Lisa. She has never judged me and has helped me in so many areas of my life. She is such an inspiration. Thank you, Lisa.

Lisa is an understanding and supportive counsellor. I am glad to have her as a support. Thanks for your follow up and support!

Written by F.E. on Jun 21, 2017 after counseling with Lisa for 1 month stress, anxiety, grief, self esteem, and depression

Lisa has helped me save my life. She is completely supportive and communicates with me regularly, even if I haven't reached out to her first. She is a total advocate of my mental health and never passes judgement upon me. She also has a great sense of humor which I have as well, and we "get" each other. Without Lisa, I would have hit the bottom of my bell jar.

I have recommended her and Better Health to many people. This site, and Lisa, literally have saved my life!

Lisa is extremely professional, courteous, and kind. She is skilled at asking questions to help you work through whatever it is you may be dealing with.

Written by D.E. on May 30, 2017 after counseling with Lisa for 1 month relationship, family, trauma and abuse, grief, intimacy-related, eating, sleeping, and self esteem

Lisa is a wonderful counselor. She is one of the best listeners I've ever had as a therapist. She gives sound, encouraging feedback. Not just telling you to read the latest book in pop-psychology like other therapists I've had in the past, when confronted with the issues of my past. Thanks so much Lisa.

Written by J.O on Apr 19, 2017 after counseling with Lisa for 1 month stress, anxiety, relationship, family, sleeping, parenting, self esteem, anger, career, bipolar, and depression

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 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 D.O. on Mar 22, 2017 after counseling with Lisa for 3 weeks stress, anxiety, relationship, family, sleeping, parenting, and bipolar

Lisa is Amazing !!!! She is so helpful!!! She make me feel good about sharing and telling her my stories. She is just wonderful!!!

Written by P.A on Feb 18, 2017 after counseling with Lisa for 3 months 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 is nothing but supportive and understanding. She will work with you and your needs on your journey. She is awesome.

Written by A.S on Feb 04, 2017 after counseling with Lisa for 2 days depression, stress, anxiety, addictions, eating, and self esteem

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 L.U on Nov 14, 2016 after counseling with Lisa for 2 days trauma and abuse, intimacy-related, and self esteem

Lisa is a gift! I'm so glad and grateful that she became my counselor. She helped me a lot with her insights, compassion, positivity and kindness.

Written by M.E on Oct 18, 2016 after counseling with Lisa for 1 week 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 depression, stress, anxiety, addictions, trauma and abuse, grief, intimacy-related, anger, career, and bipolar

I appreciate the way she is attentive and encouraging of my needs and thoughts.

Lisa is an empathetic practitioner with a gentle touch. She approaches your emotional and psychic wounds and helps you see that you can have a better life despite your diagnosis. Glad I found her.

Written by S.T on Aug 29, 2016 after counseling with Lisa for 2 weeks depression, stress, anxiety, relationship, family, grief, sleeping, self esteem, anger, and career

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 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 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 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.

Written by C.L on Feb 13, 2016 after counseling with Lisa for 2 months

Lisa is fantastic! She always offers the best insights that push me to consider things from a slightly different perspective. She has walked me through a really tough part of my past, and I feel better about it than I ever have!

Written by J.A on Jan 07, 2016 after counseling with Lisa for 1 week stress, anxiety, relationship, self esteem, and depression

Lisa is such a great listener. She always knew what to say and when to say it. She would ask me questions that got me thinking, and made me feel like I shouldn't give up. I'd definitely come back to her!! Thanks a lot Lisa.

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.

Written by B.A on Dec 09, 2014 after counseling with Lisa for 1 month parenting, and self esteem

Lisa is super understanding about the challenges of having a child with special needs. She is encouraging and supportive. And she checks in if she doesn't hear from me for a while. I've really enjoyed "talking" with her about things that most moms just don't understand.

Written by B.E on Dec 04, 2014 after counseling with Lisa for 3 months relationship, and family

Lisa is wonderful! She helped me so much that I am not needing sessions at this time, but I have not closed my account because I want to make it easy to have quick access should something arise that I want to talk to her about. Thanks for checking on me, Lisa! All is well.
