Hi, and welcome to BetterHelp. My name is Ronnie Mitchell, and I’m a Licensed Clinical Social Worker and Psychotherapist with 27 years of experience and an extensive work history on a psychiatric unit at an outstanding medical hospital. I’ve applied my expertise from the years of experience at the hospital to my private practice, meeting each of my clients’ unique emotional issues with empathy and support as we work to win the battle and fight to the finish line together. There’s nothing I haven’t seen before. I begin by explaining how happiness is an inside job and you can’t depend upon anyone else to regulate your emotions but you. I then provide the tools you need to get off the emotional roller coaster ride you’ve been on and I remind you that the one person in this world who is most important for you to please is you. I become your guide and you begin the exploration of your final frontier, to find the true treasure you’ve always been longing for: inner peace, and your true self.
My treatment approach is eclectic - a collaborative effort with my clients who actively engage with me, into the looking glass of their minds, to see issues in a new light in order to resolve them. I utilize psychoanalytic and family systems approaches. We connect the past and the present to change the future. We improve insight, self-esteem, and coping skills. Life starts to be more fulfilling. The grass looks greener and the sky looks bluer when you have hope for the future. Therapy is about change, strength, and courage. You already have all of these, so I’m looking forward to helping you succeed.

Ronnie is super kind and helpful. I feel like I can talk to her comfortably about various subjects and feel heard. She's very supportive and encouraging.
Ronnie is an amazing therapist. She responds quickly and addresses the issues in ways that are easy to understand.
Ronnie is very thorough. She takes great notes and really cares about each of her patients. She’s very knowledgeable about Bipolar Disorder, OCD, addictions, relationships, trauma, generational issues and so much more. She will sometimes sit there and just listen and when appropriate other times she will actually send you things to do/work on and always shares insightful guidance on how to deal with the situation. She learns to uncover the root of your issues, digging deeper and deeper to bring everything to the surface and then help walk you through being a better version of you.
She’s very patient and although I still know I have a long road, she makes me feel confident that I can overcome anything I’m dealing with! Highly recommend!
Ronnie is an amazing person. I felt comfortable with her and seen by her almost immediately. She offers expert listening and feedback and has so much innate compassion and kindness.
Although so far I've only had one session with Ronnie, (apart from the numerous texts and chats) I feel very confident that she will be of great help to me. She is very compassionate, listens carefully to my problems and suggests solutions which are feasible and achievable. I look forward to further sessions with Ronnie.
Ronnie is an amazing person and true professional. She made a world of difference for me during a very hard time in my life and supplied with instruments that I am now using to help my mental health and to feel better. Thank you, Ronnie, I really appreciate all that you have done for me and enjoyed every conversation with you!
Ronnie has clearly studied up on what she does. Her calming tone and understanding have definitely cleared up a lot of things in my life. Talking with her has been well worth the expense.
Ronnie guided me through many ‘AHA’ moments, and I couldn’t recommend her enough.
She is kind, comforting and an incredible person to have on your team in the darkest corners of your mind.
Thank you so much Ronnie, my life and relationships are forever changed for the better.
I’ve been working with Ronnie for a few months now. It’s difficult to find the right superlative to describe how good she is at what she does. The sheer breadth and depth to Ronnie’s abilities are tremendous. If you’re in need of support and value decency, expertise, honesty, humour, respect and practical advice... look no further.
Ronnie is a conscientious, reliable, and knowledgeable counsellor. Her personality is kind and compassionate.. She does her homework in between sessions and keeps track of your life so that you feel her deep interest in you. She is like a wise friend and she’s available on all modes of Betterhelp communication.
I’m thankful to find someone that can allow me to share in a safe place.
Ronnie is a wonderful person who takes time to sincerely understand you as an individual as much as possible and come up with the best possible recommendations. I was very lucky to be matched with her as she made a huge positive impact in my life and understanding of myself.
So far, Ronnie has been very quick to respond to my messages when I am in need and our weekly sessions have been useful. Although I have not had Ronnie for long she has been lovely and provides a good positive energy. I really enjoy speaking with her.
