These quotes represent just a few of the many positive reviews that we have received for Lucritia (Ann) Sayles. 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.
I've had the pleasure of working with Ann for 7 months now and I am so happy I found her. Ann listens attentively and always offers wonderful insight. She is extremely thorough when explaining things to me as well as sincerely empathetic. I have had sessions with her where I felt my most low and by the time my session was over, I felt comforted, heard and most of all understood that I am not alone. I always look forward to my sessions with Ann.
Ann is the best!!! Nuff said. :)
Ann is amazing. I highly recommend her!
Lucritia has been a great listener to me, and has helped me process through some things I have talked about to anyone. She is an active listener, and she validates my feelings. I have appreciated her expertise and insight into my life.
There's really no end to how much I appreciate Lucritia. Isolation has been real tough and she has been a real pillar for me during this last year , and I really do feel as though I owe her more than a simple review on BetterHelp . She's easily been the best mental health professional I've ever worked with and I recommend her with complete and total confidence !
Ann has been extremely insightful in a short time, making good use of our conversations both in messaging and in sessions. I feel like she can help me with the issues I have that drove me to do some work and hopefully come out better on the other side. It's fairly early in the process, but she's already helped me better understand some things, and I trust that I will continue to improve in my overall emotional wellness. I have spoken so positively of my experience here and with Ann, that I have already referred someone important to me to BetterHelp as well. I would have referred her to Ann, but since a lot of the work we do deals with that relationship, that seemed potentially conflicting. Ann is also warm and personable, puts me at ease, and do not feel judged at all, even when I acknowledge less than fantastic things about myself.
Ann has been the so kind and understanding towards me while I work through things. I am so grateful for all her advice and support and would highly recommend her.
