Lonetta is a strong and comforting counselor to have. She addresses issues in a clear and concise way with patients and is very responsive at any and all times.
Lonetta is warm and friendly, and she picks up on the subcontexts. I'm new to therapy and she has been extremely helpful in showing me ways to reframe my thinking and understand what I do and do not have control over.
Lonetta Mason is amazing! I'm not one to open up or discuss my problems with anyone until I met her. She listens and gives incredible feed back. I have already suggested better help to a couple of my close friends and told them they want Lonetta Mason.
I Find My conversations with Lonetta to be very helpful. She listens and responds with empathy. I think she has a good heart and a good soul and I think she’s seriously trying to understand and give me good feedback.
Lonetta has been incredible at identifying the underlying issues among the tidal wave of emotions that I’ve been overwhelmed with. She helped me see the situation in more simple and logical terms with great kindness and empathy. She didn’t overstimulate or make judgments and rather was a very calming and open presence. I could speak in any terms and did not have to filter my scrambled thoughts and she somehow managed to see right through and completely understand what I was trying to say. It’s crucial for anyone who needs help that they feel heard and Lonetta really heard me. I got the help I desperately needed at the time and all the practical and effective self-care, stress management and change of perspective I could use for future situations. I’m in a much better place in a couple weeks with Lonetta at Better Help than I have been for several months. Thank you
Lonetta is truly an amazing counselor. I was very unsure about therapy but having a strong woman on my side has been phenomenal. She tells it like it is, no fluff, but without being too harsh. She is GREAT!
She does a really good job and really listens she also prompts me to talk but without being pushy so its really helpful
I felt recognized and validated after the first session. I look forward to our session.
