I am a veteran who has been seeing Susan for about 1 year now. She saved my life when I was in a dark place. She has shown me life has meaning and I am thankful for her expertise. She truly cares about her clients and shows she does by her actions.

Written on Apr 06, 2024 after therapy with Susan for 10 months on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, addictions, family conflicts, trauma and abuse, intimacy-related issues, anger management, career difficulties, and coping with life changes

Susan is the best therapist I have found on BetterHelp after trying out many over the course of a few years. She is the perfect balance of being a great listener while also providing helpful feedback/opinions and asking thought provoking/engaging questions that make sessions feel very productive.

Susan is very easy to talk to, and she puts you at ease almost immediately. Her suggestions make a lot of sense, and have been very helpful in alleviating some of my depression symptoms after only a few weeks in therapy.
