Megan has been so helpful for me this past year since beginning therapy. She’s a wonderful listener and genuinely cares about her clients. Since working with her my anxiety and depression have improved drastically and I’m more motivating and willing to tackle tasks like never before. Any client of Megan’s is so lucky to have her.

I had a rough start with better help (trying to get verification pin & therapist selection) but my current therapist is working out much better. Wish the service was a bit more affordable.
