Written by E.B. on Feb 10, 2021 after counseling with Samantha for 2 weeks on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, relationship issues, trauma and abuse, grief, eating disorders, sleeping disorders, self esteem, anger management, career difficulties, coping with life changes, and compassion fatigue

I have had two sessions so far.

It has helped me immensely.

Ms.Thomaston seems to know what I need to work on and helps me detangle the clutter in my head and emotions so I can focus and get there.

I am benefiting from therapy with her a great deal.

I am finally being able to achieve some peace.

I’m very thankful I found the best counselor for me on BetterHelp. Samantha is a good listener and knows how to help me with my anxiety. I look forward to my sessions.

My first 2 sessions with Samantha have been amazing. She is very attentive, knowledgeable, and easy to talk to. I am excited to continue working with her.
