I find that Priya and I had an immediate ability to connect. She has the perfect balance of tenderness and also really pulls me to do my part and be honest with myself and her. I am finding this to be a powerful tool to move forward through the sludge. I'm very grateful for this match.

She is awesome. I love that she listens and is there when I need to talk. I want to say thank you for listening to me and helping me out.

I love working with Priya. She's very understanding and not judgmental that some counselors do without realizing it. She is helping me through some issues that I've been trying to deal with on my own without help for some years.

Very satisfied with this particular Counselor. I've thoroughly enjoyed the online Therapist platform. It has forced me to think before typing (which has forced me to not let my emotions get in the way in terms of trying to convey the proper information to my therapist.) She is thoughtful, insightful, professional, and really addressed each of my questions/issues I had between an ex and I. I highly recommend her to anyone who is ready for help.

She is amazing, she understands my busy schedule, and she is peeling back the layers as much as I'll let her. Love her. Thank you!

A good and caring therapist, who takes the time to get to know your situation. She has been very helpful, and someone to talk to during a very difficult time.

I came to Priya in a desperate mode and she hit the spot, right away I felt hopeful again. She just said the right thing to help. I won't be needing her forever but that just shows how much she's helped me.

I had decided I was finally ready to start helping myself with trichotillomania, depression, and anxiety- but I needed a professional to talk it out with in the process. I was diagnosed years ago and tried traditional face-to-face therapy and group therapy without a lot of success. This seemed like a good option at this point in my life. I did the free trial and I was going to stop there, but I got so much out of that first week with Priya Thiele that I decided to stick with it.

Priya has been understanding, compassionate, and honest. She's been helping me to become more aware of my triggers and ways in which I can deal with each one. We've also touched on spirituality, grief, family, and relationships. At one point I was dealing with some intense emotions in the middle of the night. She realized it was important and responded right away! That small action showed me how much she cares and how passionate she is about helping others.

I am so glad I did this and so happy to be matched with a counselor like Priya.

Priya is offering excellent guidance through a tough time. I really appreciate her and this service.

Written by T.E on May 22, 2016 after counseling with Priya for 3 months on issues concerning stress, anxiety, self esteem, and depression

I first decided to to speak with a counselor because I was grappling with some issues that I couldn't seem to work through by myself, even though I have become moderately well-versed in psychology and psychotherapy techniques through my own casual studies over the years. I'd reached a point where my self-care efforts didn't seem to be enough to manage my anxieties and depressive spells. From our first exchange, Priya perceived right away that what I needed most from counseling was a supportive listening-ear, so that I could speak openly about what was on my mind and walk my own way through my healing process. She lent me her natural warmth and encouragement as I talked things out, and asked me useful questions so that I could probe into the heart of my anxieties, re-center myself, and regain a more confident and positive outlook on myself and my life. Our dialogues didn't feel as "clinical" as I was expecting at the outset; she was more like a confidant and friend, and we had a very easy camaraderie. We spoke of spiritual principles as much as psychological ones, which turned out to be very good for me.

I'm not sure that I came away from this experience learning anything that I didn't already know in terms of cognitive therapy techniques (and "not learning anything particularly new" was one of the main concerns I had at the outset, that led me to hesitate to seek counseling for so long in the first place) but in the end I realized that this wasn't a bad thing, in my case. Knowing what I already know, I already have the tools for healing at my disposal; all I needed was confidence in my own capability, some support and encouragement. And our talks did reveal some dimensions of my personality and some roots of my anxieties that I hadn't uncovered before, and this new knowledge about myself is useful indeed.

I would recommend Priya for somebody who is similarly looking for a balance between psychological and soulful approaches to therapy. And if I find myself needing direction again, I would certainly return to Priya for advice.

I have thoroughly enjoyed my experience with Priya! She has provided me with thoughtful, caring and timely advice throughout my counseling......I would highly recommend her.

The concept of betterhelp is perfect for me. The experience is like journaling with immediate feedback. Ruminating put to rest. Chaos catagorized into bite size pieces. All this would not be possible without the guidance of the exceptational Priya Thiele.

Priya offers a vast knowledge of the challenges of depression, stress, and anxiety. She understands how this effects our relationships and reestablish a sense of sanity. I am dealing with my mother's grief of losing her husband and my husband's grief with losing his health. Priya's insight helped broaden my understanding of my situation and helped me to boost my self-esteem.

I am grateful and appreciative for our relationship. I come to her and she pokes into dark places so my own light can find new ways of being. Thank you Priya for your wisdom and thank you betterhelp for your service.

Exactly what I needed when I didn't even realize how much I needed it. I'm so grateful to Priya!

Written by K.R on Nov 22, 2015 after counseling with Priya for 3 weeks on issues concerning stress, anxiety, self esteem, and depression

I started working with Priya on BetterHelp because I was anxious and depressed and didn't know what else to do. All I knew is that I didn't want to continue feeling like I was. In just a few weeks, I'm already feeling so much better and have hope for a happy future. It has been better than any medication or self help book I've tried.

Priya has been very easy to talk to and very helpful in making me understand some things as well as working some other things out. I'm glad I decided to do this. Nice experience.
