In the short time we've been meeting, Stephen has brought great outside perspective on things and helped me deal and address issues I didn't know were affecting me and helped me affirm the correct choices I have been making when I thought I couldn't do anything right. I have become a better person with his assistance.

Stephen is a great, active listener! So far, the exercises and insights while talking with Stephen, have given me time to reflect and to start thinking of ways that I can view myself in a more positive manner. I appreciate his ability and desire to be present during our sessions but to also give support outside of our sessions when needed. I look forward to our next meeting and hope to make good progress with him while I am using the BetterHelp app.

He is very sharp. He has listened to me and I can tell he understands what I am going through and where I want to be. He has suggested approaches I have not tried yet. He gives me hope.
