These quotes represent just a few of the many positive reviews that we have received for Lora Hasse. 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.

Lora is so amazing! She’s very honest and understanding and does great at giving a new perspective of a situation. I love her advice, she also shares many interests with me which is great. I always look forward to chatting with her and our sessions.

Honestly, with just one phone call with Lora, she had helped me immensely. My god, is there more to work on. But Lora is extremely attentive and caring. I couldn’t be happier she has been my first true experience with a therapist.

I honestly didn’t know what I was getting into I was worried therapy would be very clinical. It’s totally not with Lora. She makes you feel comfortable and connects with you on a personal level that allows you to open up.

Written by M.I. on Jun 23, 2022 after therapy with Lora for 2 months on issues concerning depression, and stress, anxiety

Lora knows what she’s doing and I feel really comfortable talking about things that I’ve never told anyone before. I can ask her anything and it never freaks her out. I’m making more and more intentional and rational thought-behavior choices as I continue practicing what we talk about. I’ve had two other therapists before her. The first didn’t give me any strategies to try. The second was pretty darn helpful and helped us fix our marriage. We moved away, and when my new job overwhelmed me to the point of wanting to completely leave my career, I finally called my employer’s EAP number as a last resort. I was super concerned that I wouldn’t have time for therapy on top of not drowning at work and not being home with my family. Just the idea of rolling the dice and giving a new therapist a try after such a good past experience in a different state sent me into panic attacks. I REALLY did not want to go to therapy because it’d be one more thing to have to add to my unrealistic schedule. Like I said, therapy was my very last resort, but I knew I needed outside help. I hit the jackpot with Lora Hasse. She GETS me. She’s funny—that’s important to me—and she listens to what I say want help with, then helps me take realistic steps toward getting where I want to be mentally and emotionally. I started out with 3 things I wanted help with. After 8 sessions, I’ve got solid strategies for the first 2, and if I keep practicing them, I can tell they’ll become natural responses to situations out of my control. Now she’s helping me with the 3rd topic. I get that not everyone has the same magnitude or gravity or complexity of trauma as each other, but it is such a relief to get help with anxiety, time management, realistic expectations, leaving a religion I grew up in, and navigating unhealthy childhood family relationships and sexual abuse.
Lora had freaking Covid when I had a meltdown and needed immediate help via text and she stayed online with me through it. I’m telling you, this girl is in a much healthier, calmer mindset and I’m not having panic attacks anymore.

Written by S.H. on Jun 10, 2022 after therapy with Lora for 2 weeks on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, family conflicts, trauma and abuse, grief, intimacy-related issues, and self esteem

Lora has been great- given high cost of therapy I could only do a few sessions and she has been very thorough in ensuring I have some great tools/skills to take with me in the short time we have. She is very knowledgeable, non-judgmental, and communicates very well to ensure understanding everything. Thank you.

Written by M.I. on Jun 08, 2022 after therapy with Lora for 2 weeks on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, addictions, relationship issues, family conflicts, grief, intimacy-related issues, and coping with life changes

I have met with Lora individually and through text and she has helped me tremendously. I love how down to earth she is and she gives me homework that is do-able and realistic. She deals with the issues at hand and doesn’t stew back to things I don’t care to talk about that day, but might want to come back on another. She’s been super helpful with texts, has been on time with our individual meetings, it’s been really nice to have a different point of view and be able to share my point of view with someone that takes a step back to see it too.

Lora is compassionate and honest all at the same time. I like her approach... It's sensitive but also she is always looking for an opportunity to help guide me in a better direction. I appreciate her.

Written by T.E. on Jun 01, 2022 after therapy with Lora for 2 weeks on issues concerning stress, anxiety, addictions, relationship issues, self esteem, and coping with life changes

Lora has been able to identify and understand my difficulties without judgement or condemnation. And she doesn't just tell me what I want to hear to keep me coming back. She is a genuine person who had the tools and ability to help me face my challenges.

Written by J.A. on Mar 12, 2022 after therapy with Lora for 2 weeks on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, trauma and abuse, grief, and coping with life changes

Lora is amazing. She listens well, is direct and concrete with her feedback, and even open to learning about things she's unfamiliar with.

Written by Q.U. on Mar 11, 2022 after therapy with Lora for 2 weeks on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, lgbt, family conflicts, trauma and abuse, grief, eating disorders, sleeping disorders, self esteem, career difficulties, coping with life changes, and adhd

Lora is a super kind and respectful individual. She listens and speaks in a manner that makes you comfortable and at ease, almost like how a friend might listen to you (but with proper therapy education).

She responds to messages pretty quickly and always gives great advice. She makes sure to talk things through with you, and doesn't limit herself to short answers or vague suggestions.

Overall I really enjoy having her as my therapist, especially as a queer person in a conservative state. I can talk about my gender and sexual orientation without fear of judgement and I'm able to talk about my relationships without fear of judgement. :)
I cannot recommend her enough!

Lora has been a Godsend for me. I have been at a breaking point and needed someone to talk to who could give me appropriate advice. She has not only done that, I feel the way that she relates to me and cares about me as a person is truly appreciated. I still have a lot to get through but I'm happy that Lora will be there to help me through this.

She has really helped me, and continues to help me. I feel that Lora really understands me and listens to me. She gives great advice, and encourages me when I'm struggling.
