These quotes represent just a few of the many positive reviews that we have received for Dr. Mary Torok. 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. Torok makes me feel seen and understood. I truly look forward to our sessions because I know she has my best interest at heart. I can’t imagine opening up and learning new ways to surpass the things I have gone through. She makes me feel like I am more than what I have gone through, believe it or not, not many people have done that for me.
Dr Torok is a knowledgeable and approachable advisor. She listens and is easy to open up to. In the few months I have been working with her, she has already helped me a great deal. I appreciate her advice and support.
Dr. Torok has helped me TREMENDOUSLY. Her expertise can not be praised enough—she is always assessing and giving me feedback on how to cope, process, let go. World of difference in the quality of my thoughts, feelings, and peacefulness in shedding the past. Thank you doctor!
When I first started seeing Dr. Mary I was I was a mess and in a very dark place. I will never forget how on my first day of therapy Dr. Mary said "I can help you", but I was skeptical. To say that Dr. Mary helped me doesn't do justice to all the amazing ways my life has changed for the good. My wish for everyone who is needing help is that they can have Dr. Mary as a therapist. She is a treasure; if you are willing to do the work, she will help you.
I have an excellent experience with Dr. Torok. She’s professional and caring. I highly recommend her.
Dr. Torok has been extremely helpful to me. I can breathe again.
Dr. Torok has helped me process my emotions, she’s a great listener and I feel so much weight off my shoulders already. I would highly recommend her.
She's very responsive, helpful and understanding. She listens to what I need and helps me with those needs. She has given me things to help me work on what I need outside of our sessions as well which is great!
I appreciate Dr.Torok’s understanding of my way of thinking, while being able to bring in new information to me in a way that’s easy for me to comprehend and connect to! She’s always very kind and welcoming and that has made therapy so much easier as someone who was anxious at the start.
Dr Torok is very kind and has wonderful suggestions to help me navigate through some of my issues❤️
Dr. Torok , our time was short but it was very good for me to have someone to talk to
She is excellent!!
Very knowledgeable and helpful. She offers various options for different issues that I can try. To me, it's very useful, as I can find the ones that work best for me. I highly recommend her!
I have only had 3 sessions with Dr. Torok and after each session I have felt a bit better. I have been in a really bad state both physically and mentally when I started my sessions. Dr. Torok told me she would help me feel better at the end of our first session and I felt a huge weight being lifted off my shoulders. No one has ever said that to me before and I’m 46! I knew at that point I was going to be ok. She is wonderful and I’m looking forward to feeling like myself again with her help. Thank you Dr. Torok! I appreciate you taking the time to listen to me and then to help me accordingly.
she listens and is helpful with suggestions
She generally cares about me. She is patient when I ramble.
Definitely a big help in my situation..
I’ve worked with a few therapists and Dr. Torok has really stood out to me as someone special. I sincerely appreciate her guidance and style kind presence. I hope to continue working with her for some time!
Dr. Took seems very thorough, thoughtful & genuinely concerned with my self growth, to me that's extremely important
Dr. T is a great source of knowledge and support. She is an active listener who provides feedback and options to improve your therapy progress and outcomes. I would most certainly recommend her to any of my friends, family or acquaintances.
Dr. Torok was short of amazing. I have gone through a handful of therapists (all in person) and none of them compare to Dr. Torok. She has extensive training in many kinds of therapies and uses honest empathy (which is the best!). Whoever gets to work with her is fortunate. She’s not a therapist you come by very often.
Dr. Torok I appreciate everything you did for me. Even if it was a short time, you showed me what it’s like to receive real therapy. Because of you, I believe that there are therapists out there that really love what they do.. :)
Ps to reader:
I know online therapy can sound like it’s probably not for you but coming from someone who thought this, I suggest you give it a shot. Time to put yourself first and who knows, maybe you’ll be matched with someone like Dr. Torok. (: thank you!
Listened and provided great tools and tips on how to deal with family stress.
Had my first session with Dr Torok today and I can say that she has already given me a practical tool that I can apply into my day to make it a little better. I’m looking forward to many more sessions with her.
She has been very helpful so far. Definitely insightful and kind. I don’t feel judged ever from her. She is awesome.
She always wants to understand what I'm saying because I have a speech delay, so it is easy to talk to her.
She is really helpful and a great listener. I find that her suggestions for the different activities we do are very helpful. It has been a very positive experience
I love her she is awesome.
Dr Torok has helped me so much with my anxiety and coping skills. She takes the time to compose a customized plan of care to help each individual in a unique way. I feel heard but also I have been given many techniques to help me with my personal issues. I am so grateful for her!
Dr. Torok really listens and provides tools to answer your own questions. Addressing and asking details in order to provide you with tools to address these tough situations
I already have recommended Dr. Torok and Better Help to others. Her help has been an answer to prayer.
Dr Torok is truly amazing, and so thrilled about how perfectly matched she is based on personality and professionalism and my needs for a counselor. I am able to talk openly and honestly about the issues in which I am looking to improve on. I am beyond impressed and looking forward to growing and building my inner confidence through my sessions with her. I can not say enough good things and am truly thankful for her support and guidance thus far.
