These quotes represent just a few of the many positive reviews that we have received for MATTHEW SAMUELS. 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.

I came to counseling with a relatively strong level of self-awareness, but I knew there were ways in which I was still not prioritizing my well-being. I struggled with anxiety around making the 'right' decisions and how those decisions would affect how others saw me. Lots of overthinking often led to paralysis or perfectionism, which affected my enjoyment of life and the loving relationships around me. I had a hard time sitting with the discomfort of feelings like anger, and had become a pro at steam-rolling them into some sort of 'silver lining'. However, with Matthew as my counselor, I'm now able to slow my thinking down through mindfulness and get connected to what I'm feeling and what I need. The 'right' decisions for me are more obvious than ever now, and I can tolerate any discomfort that comes from feelings I'd previously denied myself from acknowledging. I'm so much better at seeing myself as a source for meeting my own needs, and I'm more confident about advocating for what I need in my relationships with others. Counseling with Matthew has allowed me to meet my goal of being more aware of who I am and what supports and feeds me. I would highly recommend Matthew if you want to do the same!

Matt really understands my struggles with ADHD and that gives me great confidence in him. I’ve only had two sessions so far but can tell he’s my kind of people. We clicked right away which is super important to me. He said he’s going to push me and not make it easy which is exactly what I was looking for. I recommend him to anyone who is struggling with ADHD.
