Review #20681

Review #20679
Written by D.A. after counseling with Dr. April Brewer for 2 weeks on issues concerning stress, anxiety, addictions, lgbt, trauma and abuse, self esteem, anger, and career

Dr. Brewer is a lot more insightful the most other counselors I've seen. She's the only counselor that has given me the sense of doing some real psych magic and head shrinking. All other counselors I've been to always just kind of asked what I wanted to talk about without setting agendas or given the impression that any work was done. Dr. Brewer does great work!

Review #20676
Written by G.I. after counseling with Dr. Rachel Minelli for 2 weeks on issues concerning stress, anxiety, and grief

Dr. Minelli is very easy to talk to and responds to things in a very effective way. She is also great because she provides you with "journal prompts" to work on during the week and asks questions as your week is progressing. This method makes you feel like she is constantly there and listening, very supportive.

Review #20674
Written by A.N. after counseling with Jerry Crimmins for 2 months on issues concerning depression, self esteem, career, and bipolar

Jerry is so helpful and a good listener. He offers multiple forums to solve issues or concerns I have. I have never had a counselor understand me so well and be there for me like he has. If we haven't talked in awhile he will check in to see how I am doing. I don't even have to ask! He just knows. Amazing counselor!

Review #20680
Written by after counseling with Jennifer Harrison for 2 days

Honestly, I was afraid of signing up for therapy because I thought my counsellor was only there for my money and would judge me for my problems. I was so glad I was proven wrong. Jennifer Harrison is a great counsellor who only wants the best for her clients. She was nothing but encouraging and non-judgmental with her advice and viewpoint of my situation. She goes above and beyond (she replied on her off day when I couldn't stop crying uncontrollably), gave me grounding techniques to help with my anxiety and improved my life significantly. I can't thank or recommend her enough! Before talking to her, I was isolating myself and crying everyday in my room. At her advice, I've gotten an in-person counsellor, reached out to my supportive friends and am planning to start a charity bake sale.

Review #20678
Written by J.E. after counseling with Chelsey Hauer for 2 weeks on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, relationship, family, trauma and abuse, intimacy-related, eating, and self esteem

Chelsey has been nothing shy of wonderful. I have only been with her a short time... but, I feel as though she understands me. She identifies my issues and takes into consideration my feelings and thoughts with corrective behaviors I can try. I am grateful to have found her.

Review #20664
Written by Y.A. after counseling with Barbara Forstberg for 2 weeks on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, relationship, family, trauma and abuse, grief, parenting, self esteem, and anger

She is so understanding, kind, and wise. I don't know how she could understand someone young and dumb like me, but she somehow manages to empathize and understand what I'm going through and provide me with her understanding to help my clouded judgment. I appreciate Barbara so incredibly much.

Review #20658
Written by C.A. after counseling with Jeanine Overton for 2 weeks

BetterHelp came at just the right time. I am a mental health therapist living in a rural community and don't feel comfortable reaching out to local supports. Jeanine has been incredibly supportive and caring. She responds quickly and provides me with professional and insightful support. She has been empathetic and encouraging. I have already recommended this service to friends, colleagues and clients.

Review #20655
Written by W.A. after counseling with Daniel Foust for 2 months on issues concerning depression, relationship, and intimacy-related

Dan is wonderful. He has a very warm personality and was a welcome presence in my life as I struggled through some of my own emotional and relationship issues. Being honest about your situations and your feelings is hard (especially for me), but I quickly became comfortable sharing these things with Dan. I realized that what I was going through was common and I should never feel guilty about my emotions. Through Dan, I was able to change my mindset in a lot of ways and it was very helpful to have someone to help me through the process.

Review #20653
Written by J.U. after counseling with Caryn Bickel for 2 weeks

Caryn has been awesome to talk to! She really understands what I am saying and is very supportive in her responses. I really enjoy working with her!

Review #20650
Written by H.A. after counseling with Jill Ortolano for 1 week on issues concerning stress, anxiety, and self esteem

Jill is an excellent counselor! Her friendly approach instantly makes you feel at ease with opening up to her. She helps to put a different perspective on things to help you see things in a more positive light, and is completely non-judgmental, however silly you may think something is. It feels like you're talking to a friend, and I don't get any kind of generic "clinical" feel from our sessions at all. I'm still working through some things but i'm so glad I have Jill as my counselor.

Review #20648
Written by N.O. after counseling with Bonnie Fagan for 2 weeks on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, parenting, and self esteem

I signed up for this service when I was going through a personal crisis and really needed to talk to someone who wouldn’t judge me and would listen and be supportive. I love how I can just text whatever I’m feeling and what my worries are and I know that I’ll get an answer back. The messages don’t always come back right away, but it isn’t a long wait and when I don’t get a reply it’s very thoughtful and reassuring. Bonnie gives me things to consider and ask myself that help me stay positive and learn from my current situation and move on. It’s been so incredibly helpful and made a huge difference in lessening my anxiety.

Bonnie FaganMS, LMFT

Review #20652
Written by C.A. after counseling with LeAn Sanders for 2 weeks on issues concerning stress, anxiety, relationship, intimacy-related, sleeping, self esteem, and anger

I like how LeAn helps you look at both sides of a situation. She's very supportive of what you're going through and she gives excellent thoughts to that situation. She doesn't tell you what to do, she helps you figure it out on your own. I've only done this for about a month but my situation is so much better since I've started talking to her.

I’ve been working with Lisa over 2 months now. After Hurricane Harvey I had a build up of grief and anxiety I’d never experienced. She has been wonderful guiding me through work and family related issues. She asks questions that make you think and help get to the core of the problem.

Review #20624
Written by C.A. after counseling with Velma Jones for 2 weeks on issues concerning depression, and stress, anxiety

I can not stress enough how grateful and appreciative I am that Velma Jones is my counselor. Her expertise in her profession, as well as her professionalism and understanding, make you feel that there is hope that your problems will be addressed in a positive manner. And Velma Jones LISTENS to what you are saying which, in today's world, is very uncommon! It difficult to admit to yourself that you have emotional problems. But once you do, you should hope that you are assigned to Velma Jones if she is located in your area. If your are not located in her area, make sure that the counselor assigned to you is as good for you as Velma Jones is for me and many other patients!

After each therapy session with Jennifer, it feels as if a weight has been lifted off my chest and I feel happier and at ease.

Her words were accurate and her presence was felt. Thank you

I’m thrilled to be working with Ms. McKenna! Throughout my sessions with her, Victoria has consistently demonstrated a professional, warm, and empathetic demeanor. Victoria is highly organized and keeps me on track during our sessions, which helps us make the most of our time. Victoria is very responsive to my emails and maintains contact with me between sessions, which helps me remain connected to the therapeutic process. Victoria provides thought-provoking activities to help me process prior sessions and prepare for future sessions. When I need a boost, Victoria is my cheerleader, and when I need to be held accountable, Victoria is my support. She somehow manages to balance my need for empathy and validation with my need for reality-testing and reframing. Victoria has made the counseling process a very positive and enriching experience, and I highly recommend her services! Thank you, Victoria, for being my partner in recovery!

Stephanie is amazing, and provides wonderful support. She also challenges me in ways that feel very genuine, nonjudgmental, and nonthreatening. Having this kind of support has made a world of difference to me, and has impacted my life in a positive and meaningful way. I tell everyone that my therapist is the best.

Written by J.U. after counseling with Aliah Dolan for 2 weeks on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, addictions, and self esteem

Aliah is incredible at understanding what the focus of a session should be. Sometimes that's dealing with the present moment and the struggle at hand. Sometimes that's digging into my past. And sometimes that means talking strategies for the future. Most of all, Aliah seems to understand me when I explain my anxiety thoughts. Which is incredible. She never judges me or makes me feel self-conscious for being anxious.

Written by P.I. after counseling with Karen Armstrong for 2 weeks on issues concerning depression, relationship, family, grief, and parenting

It didn't take long for me to feel comfortable talking to Karen. She was able to give me insight into my situation. My family and friends were not able to see the situation from any other viewpoint than mine. She saw both sides and also provided some clinical details about what was happening around me. It is funny how much she sounds like my husband, but her message delivery is comforting where my husband is not a softy at all. :0) Thanks Karen.

Written by S.T. after counseling with Joan Schifaudo for 2 months on issues concerning relationship, family, parenting, self esteem, and career

Joan is so personable and easy to talk to. Sometimes my thoughts would go a mile a minute and she'd expertly find important little details or phrases to pick out and explore further. She's helped me to inspect situations from different angles and I've valued her input. Feeling comfortable talking to a stranger is sometimes hard, but I've felt that Joan's been great at establishing a safe environment to just let go and talk in.

Every conversation I had with William was valuable and helpful.

Dr. Jackson seems to always hit the nail on the head.

Dr. Sciandra is a loving and caring therapist. It really shows through her counseling when we are on video calls she is genuinely interested in helping you and you don’t feel rushed. She even checks in on you long after you stop responding. I could not have asked for a better therapist! I had to pause BetterHelp, I can’t wait to get back on just to talk to her again and let her know how she has helped me. I don’t know how the pairing system works but if you get her as a therapist you won’t regret it! She has helped me big time with my depression and anxiety so your sanity is in great hands!

I believe whole-heartedly in counseling. Being able to use a resource like BetterHelp has been instrumental in my personal, emotional, professional, and psychological growth. Christina Thomas is one of the best counselors I have ever had, and that is really saying something because I have had a lot! She is kind, understanding, supportive... and yet she has never stopped herself from telling me that I am wrong, that my thinking is skewed, or that I am simply being a little whiny! She is exactly the counselor I need in my life! I am so beyond grateful that words alone cannot truly express how thankful I am. She is an incredible person and an incredible counselor, and I want to thank her and BetterHelp from the very depth of my soul.

Thank you so much, Dan!

Written by S.A. after counseling with Dr. Julie McCune for 2 months on issues concerning stress, anxiety, relationship, family, eating, and sleeping

Dr. McCune manages to put words to thoughts/feelings I've struggled with for years. I was floored at how quickly she was able to understand what I was experiencing and curate a proactive plan towards my development. I feel like her advice is always personally encouraging and never from a place of recycled phrases, as I felt with my previous (external) counsellor. She always checks in if it's been a couple days of silence and makes me look forward to sharing rather than dreading the thought of opening up. Thank you for all your support!

My client/therapist relationship with Renee is so great! She listens so well, and even though we communicate only through messaging, I'm amazed to say it is as effective as in-person therapy. Renee is compassionate and responds to my messages thoughtfully and with insight. And even though we have a comfortable and personal relationship in this way, she maintains her professionalism at all times. I'm really enjoying the whole experience here on BetterHelp.

In the short trial I used with BetterHelp, Dr. Brown was very thoughtful and listened to me, and also helped me to see some things differently. I was able to focus on the positives and start to move on from a tricky situation. I was not able to reply to some of her later messages because it came to the end of my subscription but I just wanted to let her know that I am grateful to her for the time she spent counseling me. Thank you!

I am new to online therapy, and so far I have had a better experience with this than I have ever had in an in-person setting. The idea that I can send a message and Jerry responds when he's available is awesome, as his response so far has been far quicker than waiting for your in-person therapist to call you back or squeeze you in for an appointment if an issue arises. You don't get that kind of personalized care in a clinic. My experience so far has been an excellent one, and I highly recommend Jerry, and this type of counseling.

Most importantly for me though, is that she ACTUALLY listens. And takes time away from her priority clients, to lend a MUCH needed ear and soul to "black crows" such as myself. She is beyond awesome, a bringer of light, and very heartfelt. Thanks for everything so far, Robin!

I have been working with Estela Isla for a short time but I am immensely grateful for her. Her insights and professional guidance have really aided in the dilemma I initially signed up to address. She is very prompt and knowledgeable. I would recommend this service (assuming all are as good as Estela Isla!) to everyone I know. Thank you so much!

Review #20435
Written by M.A. after counseling with Edward (Ted) Rostiac for 4 months

Ted is a great therapist with insight to help me with many issues. A counselor with a vision of healing through trauma is not easy but when a person has compassion to make you feel whole again it’s changes your perspective on life.

Review #20428
Written by S.A. after counseling with Dr. King Counts for 3 months on issues concerning trauma and abuse, and sleeping

When I began my therapy sessions with Dr Counts, I felt like a big and messy emotional pile. Dr Counts is courteous and considerate. When I drop my guard and expose my vulnerable side during our sessions, I have felt that I am in safe hands. As a disabled person, my confidence to put into words what I am feeling is gradually improving largely due to Dr Counts' non-judgemental approach to therapy. I would highly recommend him to anyone who is sensitive and self-conscious.

Review #20420
Written by A.L. after counseling with Aria Michaels Paradise for 2 months on issues concerning stress, anxiety, addictions, trauma and abuse, and eating

As a therapist myself, I am very picky about my own therapy- so I have avoided it for years. Aria “gets” me. I have a significant amount of medical trauma, and she has helped me gain insight into some of my compensatory behaviors. She is extremely supportive and checks in on me in between sessions. She has a calm demeanor, and always has great feedback.

Review #20427
Written by J.I. after counseling with Dr. Michelle Rollins for 4 months on issues concerning relationship, family, trauma and abuse, and grief

Dr. Rollins is wonderful. She has brought me through one of the hardest times in my life. She not only has given me tools and support she shares my faith and I really feel this has helped me even more. She has helped me be and stay strong. She checks in with me almost daily and always asks me what I am going to be doing to take care of myself to remind me that I need to be mindful of that and not get lost in the stress and business of life, which in turn leaves me full of love an energy to pass on to other people. She is the best.

Review #20425
Written by S.U. after counseling with Anthony Sandilla for 2 weeks on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, relationship, family, grief, and parenting

I was very hesitant to try any kind of counseling prior to signing up for Better Help and being connected with Anthony. I've tried it in the past and never felt that someone really cared or was invested in me. Anthony changed everything! I am amazed with the amount of caring and support that he has given to me. He truly makes me feel that I am valuable to him and that he has time for me. That is so important when a person is sharing their lives and heart. When it comes to listening and giving advice, Anthony is a straight shooter. He is not condescending, as I have occasionally felt in the past. He tells me what I need to hear and seems to be spot on in his wisdom. I love his approach and am grateful to have found him. He loves his job and it shows!

Written by N.I. after counseling with Dr. Melissa Marote for 3 months on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, lgbt, relationship, family, trauma and abuse, and self esteem

Melissa is the first counselor that I have EVER had. I was really nervous to start counseling, and my insurance doesn't have good mental health benefits. I found betterhelp.com and was matched with Melissa. She has helped me so much over the last few months. I really appreciate her knowledge and advice. She is great at remembering details, and picking up where we leave off. She has helped me gain coping skills, build my confidence, and help me process through sexual abuse, coming out as bi/pan sexual, and coping with some trauma. She is a skilled counselor. I recommend her to anyone looking for someone to listen, and help you process through a hard time.

I've been in and out of counseling for years (like my parents started taking me when I was 10). I've never met a counselor who really brings their passion into counseling and makes me feel like I'm important as an individual the way that Tammi does. I've made leaps and bounds in my own mental health, and I think it a pleasure to be one of her clients.

I don't have the words to describe how BetterHelp and Sharon have changed my life. I was so ashamed before to get help for my issues for lack of better words.

I am excited to see what new ideas and strategies she has for me in the weeks to come.

I have been with Dr Blake for just a short while. I would recommend him to everyone. We very quickly developed a great rapport and I really enjoyed our sessions. He is kind, insightful and funny. He has such a wealth of experience and knowledge. I needed some very specific tools and he provided these and showed me how to use them. The results were excellent and I soon found that it was these rather than focusing on foundational issues that gave me the solution. Thank you so much for all he has done. Very quickly I don’t need him but if I do meet a problem again I would want it to be Dr Blake again.

Written by R.A. after counseling with Cody Villafana for 1 month on issues concerning stress, anxiety, and self esteem

I can openly discuss my life with Cody and I'm not worried about any judgement or counterproductive response. His responses indicate that he comprehends and validates my feelings and experience and he leads me with questions to think about what it is that I want and how to get there. I like this approach because I was recently in a very controlling relationship and I find myself rebelling against any demands or directions that I am given, but helping me plot my own path and finding the resources I need to get there is much more helpful.

Cynara is most understanding, and very calming to interact with. This means absolutely everything when you are seeking help. I've been through many different forms/years of therapy; Cynara stands out from the crowd big time with this trait. I enjoy working through problems with her; as she listens thoroughly and is on my level. I have a propensity to confuse a lot of therapists/counselors, and after just a few video sessions Cynara has a very good understanding of me. I highly recommend Cynara as a kind, intelligent, and helpful professional.

Review #20360
Written by after counseling with Jennifer Albert for 1 week

So my husband and I got to a point in our relationship that we knew it was time to seek therapy to save our marriage. Our marriage wasn't at the brink of divorce but it was being chipped away little by little with every argument. Both of us have had experience with therapy before and we knew how difficult it would be to open up to a total stranger. We also knew it would be difficult to find a good fit for us both since we are very different in how we communicate. We decided to take a shot and see how it would go, so we were paired with Jennifer and begun therapy. It was a great relief for us that she was exactly what we both needed…a therapist that does not judge or impose their opinions. We have been seeing her now for some months and she's gotten to now us at our own pace. Now we are ready to begin doing the work and learning the lessons we need to effectively communicate and not tear our relationship apart. It's great to know that we get to do this work and learn from someone like Jennifer who is amazing at communicating and understanding. She makes it easier for us to express ourselves and that makes it easier for us to learn the necessary lessons from her. To say we are extremely happy that we were matched with such a great therapist is an understatement!

I recently decided to get back in counseling and of course I was beyond happy to learn Lisa was still available. We picked up right where we left off, she made me feel as comfortable and accepted as she did the very first time we spoke. She responds in a timely manner and will check in on me if she hasn't heard back from me in a few days. I can send her a short book of everything I am going thru and she responds in such a clear and organized manner, she doesn't miss a beat.

This is my first time seeking professional counseling and she guides me and supports me all the way. She is such a helpful and understanding person. I wish I could video talk with her everyday instead of every week- lol that’s how comfortable I am sharing my experiences with her. She loves what she does and she truly and genuinely cares. So glad to have her help me with my life problems. With her I feel like I can tackle any problems or obstacles thrown in my way. She always has the right answers no matter what. She is a very knowledgeable person!

Written by D.E. after counseling with Brandon Waters for 1 week on issues concerning stress, anxiety, addictions, relationship, trauma and abuse, intimacy-related, and self esteem

Really wonderful person. His style of therapy is exactly what I was looking for. As someone who has had many therapists, I am very well-versed on the many "styles" that each bring. One thing that I have never been fond of is the sugar-coated, glitter and daisies, let me bake you a basket of cookies type of therapy. I prefer the honest, straightforward (but still very compassionate!!) approach that Brandon brings. I prefer it, because it is authentic. It makes me feel as if I am talking to a friend who happens to have many years of schooling under his belt, as opposed to someone who is just paid to tell me how much of a beautiful delicate daisy I am. I am sure this is because he is a true Texan, and I am very happy!

If you came here with willingness to grow and learn, break your patterns, and change...look no further. Not very often in my life have I felt immediately connected, trusting, and at total ease with anyone. Tara's abilities to detangle my thoughts and processing are priceless. She has helped me to see my patterns, face my difficulties and given me simple, usable tools to fundamentally change my future. Her insight is hands down brilliant. Her approach is gentle yet firm and assertive. I have no fear at all exposing and sharing my deepest, darkest truths with her. If you are searching for a down to earth, educated, and a therapist that can help show you how to change your future, break your patterns, grow, evolve, and become conscious of your decisions.. you will be satisfied. She is a life saver for me.

With her I feel like what I'm going through is recognized and understood, which is invaluable to me. I look forward to spending a lot more time in session with her.

Written by C.O. after counseling with Kristen Kasperek for 1 month on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, relationship, grief, intimacy-related, eating, sleeping, and self esteem

Kristen is an amazing therapist. Having tried another online service before coming to BetterHelp, my expectations were, well, a little jaded. I’ve only been working with her for less than two months (I think?) but I’ve never felt more empowered—or grateful for therapy’s role in my life. She’s an incredible listener and is SO good about reaching out to me and not just waiting for me to message her in crisis mode. I have a medically fragile daughter and tend to be somewhat inconsistent with the timeliness of my responses but I truly feel that Kristen is invested in helping me mold the best possible life for myself. If you’re lucky enough to end up working with Kristen, you will see exactly how beneficial a good therapist can be. She’s a game changer and a true asset to BetterHelp.

She's very approachable and lends an ear so naturally that you feel comfortable conversing with her. She really takes the time to understand my perspective and really helps bring the reasons for my issues into light in a personable way. She helps by guiding me in a direction which I feel comfortable in and always encourages the best course of action with positivity and hopefulness. She even leaves inspirational quotes and links to very helpful resources which I check up regularly. I was very intimidated to reach out for help and Priscilla makes me so comfortable and happy with the experience and my improvement so far. I wish I would've reached out sooner! Highly recommend Priscilla if you are wanting an engaged, caring counselor who has the best interests for you in mind.

Written by V.E. after counseling with Glenda Baez for 2 months on issues concerning stress, anxiety, family, and grief

I am amazed that BetterHelp was able to match me with such helpful counselor on the first try. I did not have such luck with traditional therapy. Glenda is awesome! She is kind, respectful, smart, resourceful, and understanding. She remembers small details and stays focused even when I drift away. She is oriented towards solving the problem, not mulling over it for an indefinite time. Thank you Glenda, all the best to you!

Review #20185
Written by W.E. after counseling with Dr. Melissa Marote for 7 months on issues concerning depression, relationship, intimacy-related, self esteem, and anger

Dr. Marote really does listen and have a lot of good suggestions for me to make to improve my behaviors that include depression, codependency, self-esteem, anger management and stress. She is constantly checking in with no pressure, and takes good notes to refer to during our phone sessions. She is very communicative about her scheduling, though she is a very popular therapist, so book as soon as you can! I had suffered from depression since middle school and experienced emotional abuse at the hands of my mother and ex-boyfriends. She has helped me find sources of my anger and desire to please. I highly recommend her to anyone who feel they have nobody else to talk to.

I would so highly recommend Larry to anyone seeking counseling. I always look forward to my sessions!

She was always optimistic and looked for the best in every situation, she also wasn't afraid to give "tough love" when needed, even when she knew I wouldn't necessarily like the answers she was giving me. I appreciate that honesty and know she was looking after my best interest. My happiness was her main goal. She allowed me to make my own choices along the way and was unconditionally supportive throughout the process.

He helped me to see situations from a different perspective that I wouldn't have seen otherwise. He surprised me with his open-mindedness and his willingness to see things from my perspective too. I didn't expect much from online counseling, it was kind of a last resort if I'm being honest, but I needed the help and it is by far the best form of counseling I have received, and he was the best counselor I could have asked for.

She made me feel normal talking to her; I didn't feel like I was talking to a counselor or that I was ever being judged. She was able to relate to some of my situations which was also nice. I am okay for now and am going to try to do without the help but should I decide to come back I will be requesting Dr. Marote.

Written by D.A. after counseling with Dr. Scott Anstadt for 4 months on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, relationship, and anger

I am extremely grateful that Dr. A came into my world when he did. Whilst going through an extremely difficult time in which work-related stress was getting the best of me, he managed to help me relieve my anxiety and find ways to better manage my situation even after the first session. Now, a few months later, I am the happiest and healthiest I have ever been - and I could not have gotten here without his guidance and support. If you find yourself in a similar situation where stress and anxiety, either related to work or something, is taking over your world and you feel stuck/overwhelmed - do yourself a favor and book in time with Dr. A.. Highly recommended.

Written by A.N. after counseling with Dr. Leila Ortiz for 3 months on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, addictions, relationship, family, trauma and abuse, grief, intimacy-related, sleeping, and self esteem

I have tried counseling in the past seeing someone once a week face-to-face. I found that it wasn’t for me. Due to my busy schedule and the cost, I decided to try online and I feel that it has been so much easier to actually be able to write what your feeling instead of talking face-to-face, because sometimes I felt like I was at a stand still and there was no where else to go. Having Dr. Ortiz has been so convenient for me and she is always getting back to me and checking on me through out the week. She definitely cares about her clients, and I would recommend her to everyone!

She pulls answers and resources from a varied database of knowledge she has acquired and meets you where you are. I know she will change my life for the better forever.

Review #19956
Written by D.A. after counseling with Andrew Wurth for 4 months on issues concerning depression, relationship, and family

I’ve been counseling with Andy for four month now on several challenges in my life rooted mostly in my past. This was my first time experience ever with any type of mental health therapy. I had my initial reservations as this would typically be the last resort I’d chose to seek solutions for my problems. Andy has been instrumental in helping me through these challenges and was able to “crack the nut” in many unexplored and for me complex areas. He has guided me in how to get more in touch with my true self and inspired appetite to explore and share more of my less pleasant life experiences and feel ok about it. Which helps me significantly with getting along with my life challenges. Andy has most definitely managed to “squeeze the water out of a rock” in my case for which he has my deepest respect and admiration! If you look for somebody who’s very client centric, good listener, always positive and very inspirational, patient - no matter what you throw at him, flexible, responsive and very competent and experienced- GET ANDY! He’s got your back through thick and thin and he’ll truly go above and beyond to secure client's satisfaction! He’ll effectively coach you at your own pace towards where you eventually want to be. What I appreciate the most that Andy is not the "one size fits all" type. I find him very focused on client's specific needs and seeking together the best "fit for purpose" approach that client is most comfortable with to maximize and accelerate results. I don’t know what's the standard out there as I have nothing to compare it to. But I’ll say this: “I don’t feel the need to explore that as I found the perfect life counseling professional for me!” It feels like I won a bargain with Andy and would chose him as my therapist as well as recommend him to anybody and everybody every and any time. Thank you very much Andy! Look forward to continue to work together!

Written by E.R. after counseling with William Dougherty for 2 weeks on issues concerning relationship, family, trauma and abuse, intimacy-related, and self esteem

William and I have been working with each other for a little over two weeks together now and he has been nothing less than a helpful and reliable person to talk about my issues. We communicate on a regular basis and once every two weeks we chose to have phone conversations to better discuss any issues I may be having that week. I have a busy schedule and usually don’t have the time to sit in a doctor’s office to seek help from a psychiatrist so being able to have the freedom to online access to speak with my counselor has been phenomenal.

She is patient, insightful and logical. I highly recommend her.

Review #19923
Written by L.A. after counseling with Catherine Sechrist for 2 weeks

Catherine is very supportive, understanding and empathises with my situation. Her advice/guidance and knowledge is invaluable. She knows about transference and I don’t think many professionals know how to reflect on such issues from my experience. Her insight and perspective are extremely helpful. I trust her and have confidence in her ability because I know I do have difficulties trusting others and I believe the therapeutic alliance is strong if I have the correct word? What I mean is the therapeutic relationship is strong. I am never judged and I can pretty much say whatever I want without fear of consequences but I think I am always aware there are boundaries that I mustn’t cross with all professionals. She’s a very respectful lady, warm and genuine. Thanks very much for your support Catherine

Robin is a deeply empathetic and wise counselor who has been able to understand my perspective in a way I don’t think a therapist has before. She validates my feelings and experience without any hesitation or doubt. I feel that she trusts me, which is a kind of gift. Talking to her is so empowering and has been instrumental in supporting me as I emerge from one of the most difficult experiences of my life. I couldn’t ask for a better counselor and I’m so glad she’s available to me as I recover. Feeling heard and supported is incredible, but Robin will also gently challenge me when I need it which I appreciate. Finally, I value her insights that are regularly transformative to my processing. Thanks Robin:)

It's great because I don't need to hire a babysitter, or change my family's schedule. I would recommend Judith she's awesome!
