I really enjoy working with Maureen, she is able to accommodate my weird schedule and with advanced warning the occasional cancellation/reschedule. She keeps good notes and allows you to hear the postive things you've said about yourself in other sessions with her. Overall amazing woman and helped stop abusing alcohol!

Maureen is very helpful. She listens well and offers keen insights. I've really valued the work that we have done together and I feel fortunate to have been matched with her. I feel that she is always invested in my mental and emotional help and I always feel that I can count on her support when I'm not feeling well.

She is amazing. When I began with BetterHelp I wasn’t sure what the experience would be like, I was skeptical about whether I would like it, if I would feel comfortable with my counselor. But Maureen has been amazing! She has really helped me. I’m very comfortable talking with her, and the validation, support and understanding that she has provided has really been invaluable.

Maureen is patient, kind, and always finds a way to provide helpful and encouraging advice for anything I discuss with her. I’ve noticed a lot of improvements in my life since talking with her weekly and I’m so glad I took the leap to get help.
