These quotes represent just a few of the many positive reviews that we have received for Dr. Rita Smith. 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.
Super sweet and understanding
Excellent listener and in a short time helped me see things differently
Dr. Smith is very solutions oriented which makes me feel more in control than I did before working with her. She has a kind yet direct way of communicating that makes it easy to stay focused and make progress more quickly.
Dr.Smith is not your typical therapist. She makes you feel like your sessions is just two friends having a deep conversation. She does not try to be clinical with you. She keeps it real with you and tells you want you need to hear not what you want to hear.
Betterhelp and Dr. Smith are amazing, so glad that I have this outlet to reflect and progress , thank you!
She was great
Dr. Smith actively listens to me and provides positive feedback with suggestions and supporting me with decisions I have to make.
Dr. Ruth Smith is very good at listening. Listening to what I say and what I leave out. She asks me the tough questions and helps me realize what I have been doing that holds me back. She is a God-Send ... not entirely convinced that she is not an angel, but I am pretty sure God would pay her better.
I cannot say enough kind words about Dr. Smith. And a short period of time, she has equipped me with so many tools to deal with my anxiety and overthinking. She is a blessing and I am going to continue to recommend her to all of my friends and family. I look forward to continuing to work with her throughout my future and so grateful that she’s able to be a part of this platform
Very sweet person.
I love talking with Dr. Smith. It feels that she has a beautiful soul and a very kind way about her. She gets to listen to me ramble about my life stories. I feel heard.
Dr. Smith has been invaluable to me. She has become a destination for support, reason, tools and strength as I’ve worked through many life changes and self growth. Dr. Smith asks great questions, gives thoughtful responses and also kindly keeps me accountable to the progress and not going backwards in thought or action. I have told everyone close to me about my sessions and am so grateful I have better help a try.
I have greatly appreciated Dr. Smith's advice and expertise!
She is very helpful!
Dr. Smith is a great listener and problem solver.
Dr. Smith was easy to talked to while asking questions that helped me think of the situation in a different light. And very supportive of my steps towards improvement. I was very happy with the sessions i had with her and i am in a much better place now.
She is very kind and always try to understand.
Dr. Smith is a compassionate and knowledgeable therapist. She is willing to take the time to help clarify and develop therapy goals. She also is supportive when the challenges of life are large and you need a listening ear.
