These quotes represent just a few of the many positive reviews that we have received for Dr. Susan Frauenholtz. We don’t pay anyone to provide their review and they are all made voluntarily. Some people's experience receiving therapy with BetterHelp might be different.
She helped me so much. I was sceptical about therapy but she is phenomenal
Dr Susan is amazing! She listens to me, sends me messages to check on me not just in our session but outside hours. I recommend her highly.
Dr. Frauenholtz is extremely easy to talk to, and is an excellent listener. I have left every session feeling like she truly cares about me, and what I am going through. In addition to providing helpful tools during the sessions she also sends resources to help you between sessions. 100/10 would recommend her!
I ALWAYS look forward to talking with Susan each week. She has helped me feel so comfortable in sharing whatever I need to and always has the best validating and comforting responses. She always provides helpful insights and helps me to see the bigger picture. Susan encourages me to send her messages throughout the week to have an open place to share my thoughts and feelings day to day. Her sweet and thoughtful responses always help put a smile on my face. She has plenty of resources to share which help challenge my thoughts and work through them in a productive way. I always look forward to our seeing her lovely smile on our Friday morning virtual coffee dates. Susan has taught me so much already in our time working together and always sets me up for success every week!
So grateful for Dr. Frauenholtz and the honest support, guidance and motivation she gives me.
Dr. Susan Frauenholtz is AMAZING! She is very understanding and always has many ideas and solutions. She understands my strengths and weaknesses as well as my goals and has been my cheerleader for over a year!
Susan is nice to talk to and being patient on listening, which makes me being comfortable with the therapy
Dr. Frauenholtz is a fantastic therapist who has helped me beyond all of my expectations.
Dr Frauenholtz has given me the opportunity to feel that someone cares and listens to what I am saying and feeling. She gave me some ideas on what to expect in our therapy sessions and she really seems to care about what my experiences were, why I am reaching out to her. I feel as of now that this might be a well suited fit.
Dr. Frauenholtz has been extremely supportive and helps me analyze my in-depth thought processes and allows me to safely express my feelings and experiences. She also suggest different solutions and forms of therapy.
We have only had a few sessions together, but she is the first therapist I felt immediately comfortable with. She is kind and comforting, and when my thoughts are all over the place she doesn’t make me feel like “too much “. I am excited to see our our work continues.
I’ve been with Susan for the past 8 months, she’s amazing and an incredible listener. Even on bad days when I’m really anxious she seems to beam her light onto the tunnel and show the way out. We’ve worked on different excerise which some work and other we adapted to suit me. She never misses a small detail. Susan you have been an absolute pleasure to work with and have filled me with laughter and hope. I wish you all the best . Thank you
Dr. Frauenholtz has been life changing for me! She is nonjudgmental, kind, and gives outstanding advice. She makes me feel heard and I look forward to getting her advice and insight every week. I hope she can be my therapist for as long as possible!
I've had bad experiences in the past with counsellors and have not gone back to therapy for those reasons. Decided to take a stab at it one more time and Susan has blown me out of the water, I can't begin to say how lucky I am to have her.
Where do I start? She has always been helpful, and very understanding if I have things going on in my personal life. She helps me to work things out myself, as well as guide me when needed. Dr.Frauenholtz doesn't push me too far too fast, but also reminds me the importance of getting things out so I don't keep things to myself. In a short period I have become very comfortable sharing my personal struggles with her as I know she will not make me regret it. I strongly recommend her to anyone searching, and will continue to use her services as long as she recommends, and as long as they are available.
Dr.Susan is an incredible practitioner at what she does. I love working with her. She's so understanding, patient and caring. She listens to everything I have to say and provides me with the necessary tools & support that I need. On the bright side, she has the brightest aura that lights up your day especially when things get hard! Thank you Dr, Susan!
I've never had someone support me as well as she has. She really makes me think. She challenges my thoughts and helps me understand stuff.
