Very easy to talk to, and a fantastic listener. He knows the questions to ask, as well as how and when to ask them. 10/10.

Robert has been great so far! In the two sessions I’ve had with him I’ve felt comfortable and end with a positive note. Looking forward to the next meeting.

Robert has been absolutely excellent through my journey listening in a compassionate way and identifying strategies to help resolve my problems.

Written by A.D. on May 09, 2022 after therapy with Robert for 2 months on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, addictions, family conflicts, trauma and abuse, and career difficulties

Chip is great. He is an excellent listener and is very thoughtful and deliberate in the comments he makes. He is a perfect fit for someone who is introspective, honest with himself and willing to do the work even when it is tough. Do not expect instant connection or progress. After 6 sessions we are just starting to hit our stride. Be patient and it will pay off in the long run.

Always has a thoughtful approach to issues and allows me to share before trying to “fix” me

Written by L.I. on Apr 08, 2022 after therapy with Robert for 2 weeks on issues concerning relationship issues, trauma and abuse, grief, intimacy-related issues, parenting issues, and self esteem

I Appreciate Chip’s input and compassion. He is straight forward and already with one session has helped me to rethink some ways I was viewed things. He is quick to respond to my messages and in that shows his desire to help!

Calm demeanor and great listener with timely suggestions. Has been instrumental in helping me sort out and organize my thoughts around relationships

Written by B.I. on Mar 16, 2022 after therapy with Robert for 3 months on issues concerning family conflicts, parenting issues, coping with life changes, and coaching

Robert is a very good listener. He threads the needle very well with challenging you, suggesting things you may not have thought of, but also being very receptive to your rationale of why/how a situation might be different than his initial read. I always have a clearer understanding of my own thoughts and feelings after talking to him, and usually a few added ideas for how I can stay ahead of or divert incoming issues.

Written by C.A. on Mar 16, 2022 after therapy with Robert for 2 weeks on issues concerning stress, anxiety, relationship issues, self esteem, career difficulties, coping with life changes, and compassion fatigue

Robert is a fantastic, supportive, inquisitive, empathic therapist. I have seen great positive improvements in my confidence and mental health since working with him.

Robert is the best. I got lucky that the first therapist I was paired with was perfect for me! I can't recommend him enough!

He listens and gives great advice

Written by P.R. on Nov 06, 2021 after therapy with Robert for 1 month on issues concerning addictions, relationship issues, trauma and abuse, and intimacy-related issues

thanks for helping me work through creating better boundaries. I like the fact that I get to think through things with someone and then actually implement the things I learn.

Written by T.H. on Oct 26, 2021 after therapy with Robert for 2 weeks on issues concerning depression, relationship issues, intimacy-related issues, self esteem, and compassion fatigue

I have found his advice to be very helpful.

I've been a member for about a month, after trying other kinds of similar therapy companies. I almost gave up after having unresponsive therapists who insist on video chat over any kind of session.
Robert however is kind, patient, honest and almost always available. He respects my choice of chat therapy, and respects my social anxiety issues. One day I may be able to switch to video to get more out of our sessions since I recognize I lose some time with texting but this right now is ideal. I'm never uncomfortable, and I feel confident in our sessions and can be open and honest.
I look forward to my sessions, instead of dreading them.
Robert is a gem, hold on to this one.

Written by C.A. on Aug 30, 2021 after therapy with Robert for 2 weeks on issues concerning stress, anxiety, addictions, relationship issues, self esteem, coping with life changes, coaching, and adhd

He is super warm and personable. Listens when he should, guides you where you need, and offers insight when it helps. I got so lucky when I was matched with him. Very intelligent, very caring, and fun to talk to. He has helped me so much.

Written by B.R. on Aug 22, 2021 after therapy with Robert for 2 weeks on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, and addictions

The experience that I've had thus far is beyond my expectations. I had hesitations about reaching out to an online company, but thankfully I was extremely wrong. Robert Theriault has been a highlight of my life in the past few weeks. He is very knowledgeable and caring. Please do not hesitate to contact these wonderful people. They are truly there for you.

Written by M.A. on Aug 15, 2021 after therapy with Robert for 2 weeks on issues concerning depression, and compassion fatigue

I knew we were going to be able to work together the minute he didn’t freak out and overly pathologies how sick I was when we first talked.
Right out of the gate my distortions were challenged and I was given space to find where the heck all of this was coming from in a kind, supportive and caring space.
I would for certain reach back to Robert again.

Work with me!
