These quotes represent just a few of the many positive reviews that we have received for Loraine (Lori) Sawyer. 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.
Lori was great a listener and provided empathy and patience. Would recommend!
I found myself at an overwhelming crossroad. I needed a safe place to unload my thoughts, emotions and seek guidance. Lori has been so patient, easy to talk with, and really helped me view my situation from different perspectives. I felt comfortable talking with Lori and she really helped me process my situation in little steps. I am really glad I reached out.
Lori has been a huge help to me. I wasn't sure if this whole virual therapy would be beneficial for me but Lori has made it so easy. I've never been able to connect with any other therapist in the way I do with Lori and I've been in therapy for over 15 years.
Lori is a talented therapist. She understands me and asks the right questions. She is also very empathetic. I enjoy our sessions and always look forward to talking with her.

Lori is amazing! She is so thoughtful, non judgmental, and caring. I don’t feel embarrassed telling her my issues and she is very kind and compassionate. She doesn’t make me feel silly. She’s the first therapist who I’ve really loved!!
Amazing therapist who stays very involved and asks a lot of prompts to keep the conversation going and active
Totally recommend Lori, she listens compassionately and empathically. Also gives options to help with what you’re going through and helps you to understand what you might be feeling, in case you’d have no clue.
Lori is wonderful. She takes the stress out of therapy by setting the stage for a safe and comfortable space to work through things together.
