Life sometimes hands us situations that are just too difficult to deal with on our own. The good news is that you don't have to! Together we can discuss the issues that you are struggling with to find more effective strategies to manage these difficulties. I treat a variety of issues such as depression, anxiety and anger problems. Sometimes it just takes an outside perspective to help you gain a better understanding of what is going on in your life. I'm happy to help you work through these difficulties.
I help deal with a variety of issues such as social skills, school problems, anger management, depression, anxiety and family issues. Parenting is the most difficult job in the world but you don't have to do it alone. Together we can get your family on track!

Dr. Malkasian has kept me alive through the past few months of turmoil in my life. I have had huge numbers of changes (moving house, getting married, redundancy, going back to school, parents moving away) in the past four months and without Dr Malkasian's support and help I wouldn't have coped.
Lori is very easy to talk to and really listens for details that you do not realize at first. I feel like she can read me which is very refreshing.
Very helpful and understanding of my situation.
I have been working with Dr. Malkasian for almost a month. I have a lot of experience working with therapists and needed to find someone to best meet my needs during this point in my life. I greatly appreciate that Dr. Malkasian thoughtfully responds to my messages in a timely manner and has clearly read what I've shared. I was a bit worried about the effectiveness of online therapy, however have let those worries go. I feel safe and supported in continuing my journey with Dr. M online :).
Lori is extremely kind, empathetic, and has wonderful insight on a variety of life topics. She also has a great sense of humor and has helped me more in this short time frame than I have in the 3 years I received in-person counseling. I'm thankful I got to connect with her through BetterHelp!
Positive, caring individual. You can really feel her support even through messages.
Dr. Malkasian is a lovely soul who can see what you're trying to ask for without you knowing what to ask for. She's always a good ear, and very neutral. She truly wants the best for her client, and for that I'm grateful.
Dr. Lori is very kind and can read between the lines!
Dr. Malkasian is an extremely friendly and understanding individual. If I don't use the services as often, she would always check up on me and see if I'm doing okay, she's always available and is very supportive.
Lori is one of the most down to earth people I have ever worked with! She holds me accountable when I try to use my wonderfully distorted logic. She is very responsive and I know that when I really need her for a phone call she will schedule it at her soonest availability. She's been there through a lot with me recently and I couldn't recommend her enough for how supportive she is.... Really she's just pretty awesome!
Dr. Malkasian has been amazing as a counselor. She’s always on point and straightforward with me. It has just been a great experience talking with her and having her guide me with what I’m going through right now. Talking with her helped me gain perspective in the situations I am in and the ways I can overcome it.
Although I have not been working with Dr. Malkasian long, she has helped me a great deal with personal anxieties I was experiencing and was able to make me feel comfortable with chatting with her almost right away. She is a great counselor to have on your side.
I find writing to Lori to be incredibly helpful. It's almost like a diary that gives you feedback! I love the convenience of being able to write at any time from anywhere, and not having to attend an appointment.
I really like the support and validation of my thoughts and feelings and help organizing how to deal with stressful situations.
Dr. Malkasian is wonderful! She truly cares -- and you feel that. She will check on me when I haven't responded for a while just to make sure I'm okay. She has helped me tremendously with issues that I have battled for years. She tells you what you need to hear, even if it isn't what you want to hear. She has incredible insight and asks thought-provoking questions. She helped me help myself. So much gratitude for the healing and empowering help.
Love having dr. M. As my therapist she's easy to talk too easy to get along with gives great advice and never judges you even if you mess up.... quick responses as well... ðŸ˜Š
Dr. Malkasian has truly changed my life. She is always there when I need help, and responds to my messages as soon as she can. She always gives great advice, including real worldly experiences, and knows all of the right questions to ask to address your problems. I would highly recommend her.
Available and kind. Patient and non judgemental. I owe so much to Dr. Malaysian for being there for me.
I've never been one to sit in a room and work out issues I've been having. Largely due to scheduling conflicts, but also because I am a writer and I find that when I am in a session with someone I always forget everything I have been dealing with.
Being able to write my thoughts down has been a much better experience overall and I feel I have made much better progress because of it.
Dr. Malkasian has been fantastic and I am so glad that I made the effort to give Better Help a shot. She responds quickly and also follows up regularly if she hasn't heard from me which is great as I am a scatter brain. I highly recommend this form of therapy.
Dr Malkasian is great. Clear communication and really helpful.
Dr. M has been wonderful!! Her responses are very timely and spot on. I'm looking forward to working with her more.
Dr Malkasian has been very helpful and easy to work with. She is very responsive and always follows up and checks in regularly. Her advice has been excellent!
Dr Malkasian has helped me through a bit of a rough patch, she's easy to talk to and good at giving you a perspective of things so you can move on with your life again.
Living in the Middle East and never having counseling before, I had some concern undergoing an online counseling. However, I am happy I took the decision and even happier that Dr. Malkasian helped me. Even though our counseling was short, Dr. Malkasian really understood my needs and responded promptly and efficiently to my messages. She helped me a lot to reflect on the things I had issues with by asking enough questions . She explained to me why I was feeling the way I was feeling without going into personal and sensitive information. I was surprised how comfortable she made me feel and how fast I talked about my issues. I highly recommend Dr. Malkasian!
I very very much love this app and Dr. Malkasian. Dr. Malkasian is very down to earth and she is super easy to get along with. She completely understands my wants and need as a therapist and even exceeds them. Dr. Malkasian has helped me a lot to relieve stress. I have never been able to open up to a therapist before but she is very understanding and not judgmental in a rude or mean way, which are the most important traits for me. Dr. Malkasian is also very understanding with how often I can message back. She understands that sometimes I need to message her multiple times in a day. Or that I need a few days to respond or message her because I'm busy. Dr. Malkasian has been a tremendous help and I would recommend many people to her. Thanks so much for everything you have done for me :)
Dr. Malkasian is great! She's honest and super responsive. I really appreciate the support she is willing to give and the helpful ways she has me thinking about my issues.
Dr. Malkasian is extremely understanding and very responsive to messages. She is easy to talk to and very helpful.
She has been very prompt with her responses and reaches out to me.
Lori has been the guidance I've needed to get me through heartbreak.
She's great. The first professional I've ever talked to that made me feel understood and that ALL my feelings matter--no matter how small or complex.
Thank you for all your help so far, it's been great having someone to talk to and work out my issues with.
She asks great questions for me to open up my mind and more or less answer my own questions.
She is really nice and does not push me to make changes in my life. She has great tools to help improve my communication skills..If I dont write for a while she will message me to be sure I'm ok.
Dr. Malkasian is wonderful. I have not known her very long but feel comforted by her support and guidance. Yes, I would recommend you to work with her, as she can help you with your troubled thoughts! With her, I do not feel alone in my journey.
Dr. Malkasian is very thoughtful and truly cares about the mental health of her clients. I came to her at a time when I desperately needed help and she responded promptly on a Sunday. She is also very open minded and will listen to your thoughts entirely before responding.
Dr. Malkasian is great so far! I message her very sporadically and she's great about responding as soon as possible. More importantly, she's a great counselor and does a great job helping me work on my specific goals. Always kind but realistic, exactly what I need.
Dr. Malkasian is very effective. She cuts right to the chase with clear, focused and detail-oriented questions. She provides sound advice and really keeps a healthy conversation open and alive everyday. She's very prompt in her responses and immediately gives the impression of someone who you can take confidence in.
Dr. Malkasian is amazing! She has been extremely supportive and very understanding since day one. She always took her time to explain to me and make me understand better what I'm going through, and she always helped making me see the situation more objectively. When I was dealing with a lot of stress and anxiety and thought that I couldn't feel better, she taught me some essential breathing exercises that helped me a lot and that I do every day now. With her help I feel hopeful again, and I am very lucky that she is my counselor!
Lori is a nice and considerate person. Also very fun and uplifting!!
