Overall my first session was a great experience and a learning curve that pushed me to better myself

Susan Frate is very understanding but is also good at giving “tough love” for a lack of better term. She sends helpful worksheets or material to help with coping mechanisms or whatever you’re going through. I’m thankful she was my first therapist on this app :)

Susan is extremely knowledgable, professional, empathetic, and a good listener. I'd recommend her to anyone seeking insight into relationships, trauma, or grief. Can't thank her enough for the help she's provided me during my limited time with Faithful Counseling. It's been a great decision!
