Rebecca Fiest, is a wonderful therapist. She understands what she teaches you to do and provides you with the steps to get you there.

Written on May 27, 2022 after therapy with Rebecca for 5 months on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, addictions, relationship issues, family conflicts, trauma and abuse, self esteem, and coping with life changes

When I first started through here I was a little skeptical, new to the whole idea of online therapy, but I’m sure like everyone else, the waitlist locally is growing by the day. I’m really thankful I have it a shot. Rebecca has been absolutely incredible, and having the access to send her a message as something crosses my mind has truly been a game changer for me. I don’t feel ‘stuck’ if you will because I know I’ll get a respond from her soon, and that alone is worth the cost of service. She’s done extremely well at helping me overcome these huge hurdles in my life, but it’s the long term solutions that I’m especially thankful for. While I wouldn’t say I’m 100%, I’m absolutely feeling better than I ever have in my entire life. I’m thankful for this app and for Rebecca!

Rebecca is there for you like the caring mother, sister or friend you always wanted. She doesn’t just offer advice she helps you implement strategies to manage your life and thought processes. So glad I found her instead of the initial counselor I was matched with. I would recommend her to anyone trying to find their path in this world.

Written on Jul 27, 2018 after therapy with Rebecca for 2 months on issues concerning stress, anxiety, relationship, and trauma and abuse

Rebecca helped me through an intense period of overwhelm. We worked through some hangups I have from my father, the anger and frustration that stem from it, and how to set up my life and my relationship in a way that won't emulate that dysfunction. This was my first time trying therapy and I'm really happy I did.

Rebecca is knowledgeable and understanding. I have found her approachable and easy to confide in.
