Marcia is like the cool, spunky grandmother I never realized I needed. She offers great insight to the problems I'm experiencing and I am incredibly grateful to have her as my therapist.

Written by D.I. on Sep 18, 2022 after therapy with Marcia for 2 months on issues concerning stress, anxiety, relationship issues, grief, and anger management

The moment I met Marcia via video, I knew she was the right therapist for me. She was immediately helpful at a time when I was feeling great emotional pain. She is thoughtful and considerate of our time together. Our sessions feel collaborative and focused on moving forward and finding solutions for better emotional health. I am very grateful for this assistance. -- Diane

Wonderful spirit and understand my needs and let’s me express myself

Written by K.I. on May 31, 2022 after therapy with Marcia for 2 months on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, lgbt, trauma and abuse, eating disorders, self esteem, and bipolar disorder

Marcia understands my main goal and is committed to helping me get there. But she also understands life happens and is always willing to pause the plan to address what’s going on in that moment. This has really allowed me to connect the dots of my life back to the original goal and apply things I’ve been learning to my daily life. I see myself getting better and healthier each day. I am able to put up boundaries and protect my truth in a way that has allowed me to live the life I want instead of what others want for me. Healing is hard work, but Marcia listens, explains, offers insight and encourages me to put myself out there so I can live my best life.

Marcia is the most knowledgeable, empathetic and wise counselor I’ve ever worked with. In just a few sessions with her I’ve been able to go deep into issues I’ve needed to work through for decades, and have tried to with other therapists. I cannot recommend her highly enough.

Written by A.N. on May 25, 2021 after therapy with Marcia for 3 months on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, eating disorders, and coaching

While I’ve intermittently had counseling throughout my life, this is my first time really sticking to it. BetterHelp matched me with an amazing therapist, Marcia Schick, who is truly helping me with her compassion, expertise, and a bit of firmness. I was skeptical at first about an app based program, but can’t imagine going back.

Written by A.M. on May 21, 2021 after therapy with Marcia for 2 weeks on issues concerning stress, anxiety, relationship issues, trauma and abuse, grief, intimacy-related issues, and coping with life changes

Marcia is an amazing support system for me. I have been using this app for two weeks now and already I am feeling a lot lighter compared to when I started. She is insightful, patient and kind. I truly feel heard and my feelings validated and understood. I have already recommended this app to my friends and family in this short time because of how well my sessions are going with her. I look forward to every session and all of her responses to my messages I send. My time with Marcia is just what I needed and I am so happy I took a chance and downloaded this app. Better Help matched me with the perfect therapist in one shot! I couldn’t be happier with how things are going! Thank you so much to Marcia and to Better Help! I feel like we can all benefit from therapy even if you’re not going through something heavy at the moment like I am. Having someone to open up to and honestly share what you’re going through is really freeing and incredibly helpful. I am learning a lot more about myself in the process and I’m excited for my journey and really looking forward to doing the work to reach the highest version of myself!

Marcia is always helpful and respectful when we work together. I really feel like she understands what I'm going through and never talks down to me. She is very responsive when I send her messages throughout the week. She has also been extremely flexible with my work schedule ever since I started my full-time job. I value my time with her and feel like I have greatly improved since I started working with her.
