These quotes represent just a few of the many positive reviews that we have received for Mary Jo Downer. 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.
She is attentive to my needs and offers a lot of resources to help me get through my issues. She is happy to talk when I don't feel like talking and will listen whenever I feel comfortable to open up about a subject. I highly recommend her as a therapist, she has been very flexible with me.
I am so happy to have Mary Jo as my therapist. For the first time after years of therapy, I feel like I’m really getting somewhere. We are really digging deep and Mary Jo is doing a phenomenal job in facilitating our sessions. She is warm, empathetic and very easy to talk to. She asks the tough questions but with compassion and understanding. She is both very personable and professional. I would recommend her to anyone seeking therapy, especially for overcoming trauma.
She is very easy to talk to. She shows empathy, knowledge and a great sense of humor, which was exactly what I was looking for in a therapist
