These quotes represent just a few of the many positive reviews that we have received for Mary Patrice Pero. 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.
Mary Patrice is excellent and anyone would be lucky to have her as their therapist. I could say it in a lot of different ways, but that's the long and the short of it!
My therapist is great! I would say I trust her more than any professional I have gone to. I do wish Better help would accept medical coverage, but my therapist has my highest rating.
I’m only two weeks in with Patrice, but she has already helped me so much. She is patient, caring, knowledgeable, and supportive. I would highly recommend trying a session with her!
The best, as always!!
Patrice is wonderful to work with - kind, patient and well informed on a variety of practices and techniques. She has been instrumental in my improved mood, viewpoint and perspective of the world. She's been the best therapist I've had in a lifetime of therapy.
Patrice is "present," tuned in, connected, and listens to understand. She hears not only what is being said, but also what is not being said, which allows her to tap into the core of what the true issue is. Her questions are thoughtful and thought-provoking, and she has opened my eyes in a way that no other therapist has. I do not feel dependent on her but rather I feel a growth spurt, like I can do life better on my own. I don't want to need a therapist, I simply just want to continue growing and learning.
I am so grateful to be working with Mary Patrice Pero. She is a wonderfully caring and empathetic therapist who also challenges me with difficult questions and goals. She is also a great listener. We have only been working together a few weeks and I am already feeling lighter. I look forward to each session and know that with her help I will continue to grow and achieve my goals.
Mary has a deep understanding of the source of many core wounds that result in low self esteem and low self worth. She can confidently and honestly navigate sensitive topics with care.
I feel like I’m making some great progress with Patricia’s help
Very happy with our progress.
Patrice is so amazing. She helped me out a LOT in a very short amount of time. I’m so glad I was able to get paired up with her. It’s been a very good experience overall.
Patrice has been very helpful in the limited time I’ve been seeing her. I am really looking forward to continuing the process!
I have only had 2 sessions, and so far, I feel like it is a good match and progress will be made.
In just our first session, Patrice was able to identify issues I’ve been struggling to articulate and laid out an achievable, non-abstract roadmap to betterment. Patrice is very compassionate, focused, and insightful. I would feel confident referring her to anyone looking for help and betterment.
Patrice is amazing! This is my first time seeing a therapist and she made the entire process so easy. She is a great listener and very supportive, i felt much better emotionally and mentally after the 1st session and every session after has only made me feel even better. I feel like a new person! Thank you Patrice for everything!
