These quotes represent just a few of the many positive reviews that we have received for Sharon McKay. 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.
Very good listener
She’s amazing! Would definitely recommend to everyone
I love her!! She is very personable and definitely not your average hallmark card therapist. She’s real and has first hand experience with issues I’ve faced. She obviously and truly cares for people. She makes her sessions feel as if your having a conversation with a friend, feeling inviting and comfortable. She really knows her stuff and is 100% real with you.
She is good at what she does!
Dr.McKay is one of the easiest people to talk to. I have been in the service industry for over 10 years & experienced a significant amount of trauma. She has improved my way of thinking in just a short few months. She is very knowledgeable and really is there to help you. Dr.McKay was my first therapist so I was a little apprehensive about the seeking help.
She has made me feel like therapy was the best decision I could have made and all of my friends and family agree. I definitely recommend her services to everyone.
I’ve never done therapy before and I got matched with Sharon. I can just say that she LISTENS and really I think that’s the most important thing. I’ve had 4 sessions and the solutions to my issues or problems are just way easier to find with her guiding me. You will be in good hands with her in ur corner/ear.
Sharon is so understanding! She totally understood right where I was coming from and helped give me tools to get back on track.
She's amazing, super sweet, and listens really well. I'm glad we get to work together and she's so understanding, because it's hard to talk about my problems but I'm so comfortable around her.
Sharon helped me immensely and has made a lasting difference in my life. It is clear that she is well-educated and experienced. I am forever grateful to her and would highly recommend working with her.
Sharon is a straight forward therapist. She challenges you to get to the root cause and partners to identify if there are additional tools or resources she can provide to help you heal. She is an active listener that makes you feel heard and is focused on you and you alone when in session. Sharron checks in on me if she doesn't hear from me between sessions and responds very quickly when you reach out. If you need her, she's there for you!
