I am so fortunate that I was paired with Mary right from the start of my BetterHelp membership. It can be a challenge finding a therapist that you gel with. Mary is kind, very approachable, and leads with an open-platform that allows her clients to talk openly and confidently. I would highly recommend Mary to anyone that needs assistance with big life changes, anxiety, and stress management.

She takes me for who I am as a person and makes me feel comfortable about uncomfortable information, In my head, what it considered on the threshold of a crisis in a 21 year olds mind.

Mary Cottrell has been absolutely wonderful to work will. She responds in a timely manner when I need it and also checks in on me when we haven't talked in a while. She also listens to what I have to say and focuses on my most important problems first. Out of my experience with counselors she is one of the best.

Mary is a great listener. I wasn't sure what to expect when I first signed up but I feel like progress is being made and she encourages me to think about my concerns in a different way.
