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

Melissa is amazing! This was my first time ever being in therapy and she made me feel so comfortable. Most of the time it felt like I was talking to a really good friend! She pushed me out of my comfort zone on certain things and helped me really find myself throughout the process. I was feeling really lost when I came to Better Help, and I will forever be thankful for her helping me see my worth and just listening to what I had to say. Some days, I wasn't sure what to talk about and she helped me work through those road blocks. Other days, she was just a listening ear when I had too much to talk about. I can't say enough good things about Melissa, and I am a better person because of her.
