These quotes represent just a few of the many positive reviews that we have received for Nancy Loken. 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.
Excellent therapist. Reached out even when I cancelled with no warning. Good person.
Nancy listens intently
I didn’t have a good experience with my first therapist, but Nancy is everything I ever dreamt of! She’s personable, funny, great advice, she’s always spot on. I look forward to my appointments with her. Some weeks are difficult to get an appointment which is disappointing. She’s such a good listener and is relatable and remembers me and my story every call!
Nancy is always helpful and positive during our sessions. She listens to me and sets engaging tasks between sessions, which help me consider situations in a different light. When I encounter a problem during the week, I am always happy knowing that I can discuss it with Nancy during our appointment.
Nancy is a very friendly and supportive therapist. She has really helped me work through some issues around my family during our time together.
Nancy, just knows what to say and when to say it. She’s very professional and definitely are one of the main reasons i am feeling supported.
I feel like Nancy listens to and respects me, but also shares a personal anecdote when necessary to make me really understand what she is trying to get across/where she is coming from. She supports me during sessions and outside of them, as well as pushes me (in a nice way!) to continue to figure out what I need or will work best.
I can highly recommend this therapist. She is very patient and listens. I feel supported and relieved after speaking to her.
Nancy is pretty. Doesn’t beat around the bush. She will call me out on my BS. Flexible in ways of therapy that help. Keeps me accountable. I keep coming back.
