Marie is such a sincere therapist, I could not ask for a better fitting therapist for me. I am so grateful to have been able to work with her. I felt understood, heard and cared for. She created a safe space where we can talk without inhibitions. And now I feel like I have better tools to regulate my emotions and feel more at peace compared to before. I would definitely recommend her to others who are considering BetterHelp/therapy and worried about being judged or not understood. She is an empathetic healer and I would recommend her to many. Thank you so much, Marie, for setting me up for success in my next journey.

I am very lucky to have been paired with Marie for my therapist. Her warm vibe makes our sessions conversation effortless. She works with my schedule and I look forward to our session every week. She sends me tons of usefull links and worksheets between our sessions, and checks in to make sure things are going OK. She is genuine, kind, and an absolute legend.

Extremely helpful and comfortable to talk to! Shes so kind and sweet and I would love to keep working with her for however long I can. Makes me feel safe in what I say and that's all I could ask for.

Marie gives me tools to deal with my anxiety. She's available to listen and offer an insight into my overthinking. She sends videos of breathing exercises that calms me down. I like how she prays with me knowing the importance of Christ in my life. She's patient and caring since I'm new at navigating the online therapy. It's working for me.

Marie has been incredible for me! I have had three or four sessions with her now and I already feel much more capable and in control of my progress and growth with therapy. She is very understanding and also very knowledgeable when it comes to dealing with trauma. For me she is a great fit and I am so grateful to have a therapist who understands my particular needs and has the skills to help me meet those needs. I enjoy our sessions so much and I look forward to each week with her!

I've only had a few sessions with Marie so far but I love her! Already I can tell how much she cares and how driven she is in her line of work. I'm excited to continue my sessions with her!

I never write reviews but I think it's important for others to know when a truly gifted Therapist comes along. I've seen other counselors and therapists over the years and continued to struggle because I didn't feel heard, understood, and the time and space between appointments was too long for the immediate help I felt I needed for those particular struggles. With the BetterHelp platform I was matched with Mary Van Patten within 24 hours. I cannot give enough accolades to her for her dedication to helping me make it through a very difficult time. She is the most thoughtful therapist I've ever known and has so much wisdom and experience on all my trauma. This is so helpful to feel heard and finally breathe because her validation has helped me not feel alone. I have been spoiled with helpful links, homework, fast replies, and most important of all I feel extremely safe talking to her. She has been fluid in what works for me and messaging feels comfortable and real. I can see light at the end of the tunnel. That says it all, I think. Thank you Mary. Thank you BetterHelp.
