I'm grateful for the ways that Raven reminds me that my thoughts are the stories I'm telling myself and not always true or based on reality. She also holds me accountable so I can see my blind spots and work to get passed them. I really appreciate our time together.

She is a great listener, a great friend. I will have problems that I think are unsolvable and she will listen, point out the main point immediately. Moreover, it is about You. She give you a path, it is up to you to decide and along those paths, she will assist you fully untill you reach your identity.

I’ve seen 2 therapist before I hit the jackpot with Raven! I feel like it just clicked even tho my experience with therapy is very minimal. I respect her as a person, she has responded well and even when she asks me the difficult questions it’s put in a kind way. I hope she stays on the platform for a while as I continue to work through my stuff, it’s really nice to have that once a week check in, either for accountability or support.

I’m not going to lie, I was skeptical of doing therapy because I do not like opening up. Raven is the best therapist I could’ve asked for. She definitely puts things in perspective and makes me really think and her deep into my feelings. She has helped me more than she knows and I am so grateful I found this app!

She is great so far. I feel like we are just getting to know each other, but already she has been very insightful, picking up on little things that are the crux of the issue before I could articulate that, even to myself.

I had my first live session with Raven and I have never felt more comfortable with a therapist. She is kind and you can tell that she is listening and cares about what you are saying and feeling. I love that she challenges me with questions and makes me think. She is extremely easy to talk to and very welcoming. Really happy I was connected with her and would recommend her to anyone! Thank you Raven!!

She has been very helpful with getting me to focus on what's best for me, rather what others think what's best for me. I highly appreciate that.
