Ronald is absolutely amazing

Hi Ron is a custom fit to me needs. My journey wouldn't be a successful with someone else. My needs are living with a narcissistic family and he has exceeded my expectations.
Thank you Ron

I was skeptical of being able to engage in therapy through a virtual platform but the wait for in person sessions was very long so I decided to give it a try and I am so glad I did. My experience with Ronald has been incredible. I feel that he was able to make me feel supported as well as challenge me to think about my anxiety from a different perspective. He has a wealth of knowledge and experience and made me feel comfortable and confident.

I am currently seeing Ronald and he is an amazing therapist I would recommend to anyone wishing to address their mental health. His expertise, kindness, and understanding are things I look forward to seeing every week. He is a great listener who will promote speech in every consultation so I am definitely feeling heard by him, especially when he acknowledges every word and their context for the therapy.

Overall, Ronald is the best of the best and I am thankful he is my therapist.

Amazing, genuine, insightful human

Written on Aug 26, 2022 after therapy with Ronald for 6 months on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, relationship issues, trauma and abuse, grief, and sleeping disorders

He’s a wonderful human being and it doesn’t feel like therapy when I talk to him. It’s like talking to an old friend!

Written on Aug 04, 2022 after therapy with Ronald for 4 months on issues concerning stress, anxiety, relationship issues, family conflicts, and coping with life changes

I don't even know where to begin... Ronald has truly changed my life for the better. He is an outstanding therapist - the best one I have ever seen. He is always so insightful, positive, caring, and goes above and beyond.

I am truly blessed to be matched with him and can not even begin to express how thankful I am for his patience and guidance during my healing journey.

Ron has been a great therapist for me these past few weeks! He listens with such noticeable care and concern for my well being and he’s just a light in the dark tunnel for anyone who is going through a hard time.

Ronald is fabulous! In my search for a therapist, I had been specifically looking for someone to help me through career changes and building resiliency. Better help was able to connect me to Ronald, and now I call him my coach! So very lucky to have his support through many hard times, I am very thankful to have been connected to him.

Absolutely LOVED working with Ronald. Wish I could keep seeing him but am moving. He's super funny, genuine & caring. I always felt like he listened and understood me. If you're looking for someone who can be empathetic but also helpful and relatable...he's your guy! Thanks for all you do, Ronald!

Ronald has been crucial in my journey and personal development. He has the patience and ability to actively listen to whatever it is you’re going through but also makes you feel like a true friend. Betterhelp is lucky to have such an outstanding professional on their roster!

Written on Feb 26, 2022 after therapy with Ronald for 1 month on issues concerning stress, anxiety, and relationship issues

Ron’s incredible depth and bread of experience have been incredibly helpful in giving me new perspectives on my mental health and new tools to help improve myself. I would recommend him to anyone!

Written on Feb 23, 2022 after therapy with Ronald for 2 months on issues concerning stress, anxiety, relationship issues, trauma and abuse, intimacy-related issues, self esteem, anger management, and career difficulties

Ronald is very welcoming, compassionate, and approachable. For anyone who’s had bad experiences in therapy (as I have in the past), or who might be apprehensive altogether, Ronald will make you feel very safe and comfortable to be yourself. He has a great sense of humor and takes a human-centered approach. For once I’m not dreading therapy sessions - I actually look forward to them. Ronald is not so prescriptive as he is a great listener who asks all the right questions to help you come to your own conclusions. I would recommend Ronald to anyone :)

I appreciate the flexibility that Ronald has provided in my sessions. He understands my situation and is working with me so I am able to do what I need to do.

I was very wary at first of having a male therapist as I was hoping for a female due to my trauma. But I actually ended up really loving working with Ron. He’s very understanding and perfect for me. We work really well together and I very much enjoy our sessions. I feel like we’re really getting somewhere in my therapy and I’m so thankful for him.

Written on Jan 13, 2022 after therapy with Ronald for 2 weeks on issues concerning stress, anxiety, depression, self esteem, relationship issues, and coping with life changes

I have genuine respect for the skill Ronald possesses. I really recommend anyone with anxiety to seek his therapy and allow themselves to be immersed in his calming, soothing presence.

Written on Jan 05, 2022 after therapy with Ronald for 2 weeks on issues concerning stress, anxiety, family conflicts, trauma and abuse, and eating disorders

Written on Dec 02, 2021 after therapy with Ronald for 5 days on issues concerning stress, anxiety, relationship issues, family conflicts, trauma and abuse, career difficulties, and coping with life changes

Ronald is amazing!!! I feel like that is so much that I shouldn’t even continue this review but I am going to.

After years of floundering with different providers that were not a great match I have found a person who is on the same level as I am and one of the first things that he said that I will never forget is that we are all human beings.

He makes it extremely simple to start working on whatever you are there for, there is no judgment or the feeling of opinionated and Advising what you should do or constantly asking you well how does that make you feel??

If you are at a place where you know exactly what you were trying to accomplish and you want somebody who is extremely intelligent and intellectual with an amazing sense of humor, and it feels more like a person that is at the same level as you versus an authoritarian figure which I have never felt in my many years of going to psychologists and therapists. The feeling I get is that I am the expert about who I am and what I need and he is there to listen and work with me and I really appreciate how open minded and with a what a broad her Rison he sets. he’s very easy to schedule with he tries to make your life easier when it comes to everything and I have never since this before it’s wonderful wonderful wonderful wonderful!!! Very quick responses if you want to schedule an extra session or change something and very attentive and engaged at the same time as his perspective on things which to me is truly a very complementary skills and characteristic in a great mental health professional but also you feel like you were building a relationship with a person! I just could write forever about all the wonderful experiences and this is just based off of one session and a few text messages so please if you are looking for somebody in that world give him a try! While appointments last because I have a feeling he’s going to be completely booked very soon!

Work with me!
