Written by C.H. on Nov 02, 2021 after therapy with Mark for 3 weeks on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, relationship issues, trauma and abuse, grief, intimacy-related issues, self esteem, and coping with life changes

Mark has been able to recognize issues I didn’t know I had and provide positive strategies to get me to a place I feel like myself again. BetterHelp did a fantastic job matching me to a therapist who could listen, challenge and support me.

Mark is really professional and corteous. I trust in his techniques. He really knows how to probe those emotions and make you realize what the real problem is.

I've found my conversations with Mark to be very helpful. He is both professional and very funny and I really appreciate that combo. He is a great listener and has a lot of resources at hand to share that are helpful for further reflection.

Written by R.E. on Jun 06, 2021 after therapy with Mark for 2 weeks on issues concerning eating disorders, and self esteem

I was quite specific in what I asked for as wanted solution focused therapy instead of person centred counselling. I was matched with Mark and it was an excellent match. Mark has really delivered what I had asked for in helping me find solutions. Using worksheets etc. Goal setting etc . Mark is very relatable, down to earth and has a good sense of humour. Very relaxed and put me at my ease.

I feel very safe sharing with Mark, and love his methodology. I feel supported in my own discoveries, he lets me figure things out on my own and simply guides me through certain things whenever he feels necessary. Sometimes I do feel like he holds back certain things, but I always feel like it's in a "saying this now would not be productive and it'll be better if he figures it out on his own" sort of way. All in all he is a great counselor and I am really happy to have been matched with him.

I am 26 years old and have tried counselling a handful of time before and never really connected with anyone until I met Mark through betterhelp. He is Kind, Calm, and very easy to talk to. His knowledge has helped me in many ways. I would highly recommend Mark to anyone who has had troubles counselling.

I have had sessions with Mark for the past two months and I can say he is amazing. He really listens to your problems and guides you through ways to overcome them and see situations in a clearer light. His voice is very comforting and kind, you really get the sense he truly cares and wants to help you through this. He sends me information guides and help sheets after every session to ensure I get the most out of every session. He has helped me through this rough time and I felt safe and calm after every phone call. Thank you.
