These quotes represent just a few of the many positive reviews that we have received for Dr. Marilyn Sears. 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.

Dr. Sears brings a warmth and humanity to the therapy experience. Her listening is profound and her comments and suggestions come from a place of deep understanding. I have moved from a crisis situation to a place of new growth.

Dr. Sears had a great deal of compassion and was transparent. She has a strong knowledge set and gave me multiple coping skills. She was very professional.
