Staci understands how to talk to me and gives me great feedback. She’s wonderful!
I hated therapy and I only would go one time and then I would quit.
I have made it past 1 with Staci and I am looking forward to our 3rd session! She is truly amazing and I feel so comfortable talking to her!
Staci has been extremely helpful during all aspects of my life and in transitioning to a new job in a new state FAR away from where I called home! She's attentive, on time, and is so personable and friendly while still remaining professional and courteous!
I really appreciate the time I have taking therapy with Staci. When are having our session I feel comfortable and I’m able to open up about things that I have major issues with and so far Staci has been of a great deal of help and insight that has really helped me over the last several months.
Staci has been an ENORMOUS help to me during a very stressful time in life. She has truly been amazing!
She's an amazing person and a consumate professional.
Great listener, great communicator, and great coach for this thing we call life. Definitely would recommend her for anyone who needs healing and needs a individual to working on communication.
Staci is awsome. She listens gives advice and very responsive. She's quick to respond to messages and get back with me as soon as she can.
A very nice and patient person, very equipped with the knowledge and understanding of how to help me. I'm planning on remaining in therapy with this therapist
Staci is a great listener. Always helps me navigate my feelings!
Staci has been an enormous help to my life, if it wasn’t for her I’d probably have gone back to the bottle and not be where I’m at today. I am forever grateful for how much she’s done for me
Through the start of this journey I feel like I have gotten more out of the last couple of weeks than I got out of months with an in person therapist.
Staci is so very patient and understanding.
I am so happy to have found Staci Waites and Better Help. I don’t typically have time to be in an in office session. I am very happy with both Better Help and finding a therapist who understands my needs and concerns.
Staci is great! She always interacts with everything I'm talking about. 10 out 10! She awesome!
