I had technical issues with the first therapist I tried to work with, and Margo and I have also had technical issues (but we were able to work through them). Similarly, I had recommended Better Help to my mother and she couldn't make it work either. Your IT department needs to work on making it a more stable platform, especially for areas where broadband is an issue (e.g. rural areas).

Margo was great! She listens and makes great recommendations on how to cope with my situation. Just knowing someone is there listening to you is a great help! I feel much better every time I talk to her.

Margo has been very patient and kind during our sessions. I think it is always difficult to reach out to a new therapist. Margo has done a great job at allowing me to work through what I have on my mind and offering unique insights and affirmations. I am happy that I reached out and ended up with Margo.
