Written on Dec 01, 2022 after therapy with Shawna for 3 weeks on issues concerning relationship issues, family conflicts, eating disorders, self esteem, career difficulties, coping with life changes, and adhd

This is our first appointment and already I know she’ll be a good match for me. She hit me with some hard truths today about my life situation, and as much as I’ll need time to process what I know is true, I have to thank her for it.

It’s still early in our therapeutic relationship, but I feel trust was established very quickly so that I am comfortable talking about anything! She understands my primary concerns and challenges me to look at the emotions that are going along with my actions. I think she’s great and look forward to working with her more! The video chats allow me to see that she has compassion and is truly listening.

It is an honour to work with such a compassionate, talented, open minded and inspiring therapist. Dr. Haley's years of practice and education doesn't even begin to describe how gifted this woman is. 9 months ago I was a mess. I will forever be grateful for her energy, words, empathy, help and guidance.

So thankful that I have found Dr. Haley. This is the best decision I have made by choosing to have therapy. She is so patient and listens to everything I have to say.

Dr Haley has been amazing from the beginning of my journey with Better Help. She is patient and encouraging but not overly pushy.

I started this journey is a dark place feeling lost in the world. It was great having someone neutral to speak to. I highly recommend Dr Haley as a therapist. She is phenomenal.

Dr. Haley has literally transformed by life in the space of 1 session. I have never had therapy before so I did not know what to expect but she has been so amazing through this process. She is non judgemental, a good listener and offers practical steps. I will definitely continue to see her.

I've been with Dr. Haley for about 5 sessions so far and for me it's been quite life changing starting therapy for the first time ever and feeling really grateful I got to connect with a very patient and compassionate therapist. She has given me skills and knowledge to apply each session and I really enjoy each session!

Written on Sep 16, 2021 after therapy with Shawna for 2 weeks on issues concerning stress, anxiety, relationship issues, self esteem, career difficulties, coaching, and compassion fatigue

I have been so pleased with my experience with Dr. Haley! She seems like the perfect fit for me and my needs. She listens, offers sound advice and insight, and provides practical tools that I can reasonably implement. She helped me to determine which things I need to tackle first, which I needed to not feel overwhelmed. I’m so happy to have found Dr. Haley and BetterHelp.

Written on Jul 18, 2021 after therapy with Shawna for 1 month on issues concerning stress, anxiety, relationship issues, and family conflicts

Dr Haley is great. She listens to my goals and concerns for areas I wanted to improve in and we’ve been able to develop strategies together. She follows up with reminders of how to practice those strategies in day to day interactions. I appreciate the empowerment that Dr Haley has made me feel and it’s given me the confidence and tools I need to address the areas I first started this process, of counseling, for. Highly recommend working with Dr Haley!

Thank you Dr Haley for opening up my eyes and giving me the right amount of structure and support I needed. I might return to you again in the future if needed but hopefully I wouldn't need to.

My sessions have been fantastic in giving me the tools I need and the space to reflect, I cannot recommend Dr Haley enough.

Written on May 18, 2021 after therapy with Shawna for 2 weeks on issues concerning relationship issues, and self esteem

Dr. Haley is great! She helped me work through some unresolved issues from past relationships by helping me put things into perspective. I finally got to the bottom of issues I had been dealing with for months in less than an hour. I can’t thank Dr. Haley enough for her help!

Written on May 04, 2021 after therapy with Shawna for 2 days on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, relationship issues, family conflicts, trauma and abuse, self esteem, anger management, career difficulties, coping with life changes, and compassion fatigue

I had my first session scheduled several days in advance with Dr. Haley. She did not show up for our session which is very disappointing and did not help my emotional state. I would hope that the doctors on here or anywhere would be professional and come to the scheduled appointments.

Work with me!
