About me

Welcome! My name is Thérèse Fletcher, I have dedicated my life to the service of helping others.
About Me: The majority of my career has been focused on working with extremely vulnerable communities in urban settings. I enjoy helping all types of people with problems big and small. Relationship issues, life transitions, grief and loss, emotional stress, and chronic illnesses, are among the many areas that I have helped my clients effectively deal with and overcome. I believe therapy is a collaborative process and it's my responsibility to meet a client where they are and to help them set appropriate, beneficial goals for themselves.

As a Licensed Clinical Social Worker (LCSW), I am a licensed independent clinician with more than 11 years in medical and social services fields. I also have supervised and trained other social workers.

I believe a successfully therapeutic relationship is one based on respect. I believe in a strength based approach which uplifts confidence and empowers you as an individual.
My approach includes working together to develop specific methods and perspectives that will not only help you resolve your current issue, but give you the tools to make your life from today onward more fulfilling and satisfying.

I know that the decision to seek professional help can often be a very difficult one.

If you are trying to make that decision right now, it may help you to know that I am someone who is not here to judge you, and who really believes that there is a way out for you that together we can find. You have already taken the most important step by acknowledging that, for now, this is something you cannot handle alone. So if you feel overwhelmed or unfulfilled, your online search has brought you to the right place. I can help you with emotional issues such as self-esteem, depression, anxiety, anger, and stress. I also help you with other areas of your life that become affected by these issues such as relationships, communication, work or your education. I can provide accountability as you work through the growth process.

I can provide short-term solution oriented treatment as well as long-term emotional processing. Your treatment goals and how much you will benefit from services are completely up to you but I will be here to guide you every step of the way.

I'm grateful to BetterHelp for giving a therapeutic resource to people that may otherwise not have access to counseling services, and I applaud individuals that are currently looking to make changes they need in their lives.

It takes a lot of strength and courage to critically think about what you need. You’ve already taken the first, and most difficult step, so contact me if you are ready to start the course towards a better You. I look forward to helping empower you to live your best life!

I really like Thérèse! She is professional, listend to me, offers me great support and I have the feeling she really understands my thoughts and concerns.
She always answers really fast (we have a time difference of 7 hours, so i keep in account that sometimes it’s night at hers when I’m writing her, so if cause she won’t answer).
English isn’t my first language but I have no issues in understanding her and the information she is sending me!

Working with Thérèse has been a wonderful experience. To have someone to really listen and also validate what I am experiencing. It can be hard sometimes not having someone to speak to when navigating emotional trauma but Thérèse has been amazing in doing this.

I have made great progress with my counselor Therese Fletcher. We are open and direct and I get amazing guidance. This online counseling thru betterhelp is so good, that I have already referred it to 5 other people. I have gone the live chats, I’ve done the online face to face and I have joined several groupinars. Everything has been so helpful and I am becoming a more mindful person while I am working on myself. I have really learned a lot.
Thank you

Written on Jan 13, 2021 after therapy with Thérèse for 1 month on issues concerning addictions, and self esteem

I had a poitive interaction with Mrs. Fletcher. She is friendly yet adresses problems in a clear and concise manner. She also gave out lots of worksheets and helpful ressources. I recommend her counselling and guidance to anybody who is both scientific and religiously oriented.

I feel really comfortable with speaking to Therese. She explains and helps me understand why I am feeling different ways related to my situations. Therese helps me feel at ease with emotions and has given me great tools and ideas to help ease anxiety and other feelings I am dealing with at the moment. I highly recommend Therese Fletcher!

Written on Dec 26, 2020 after therapy with Thérèse for 1 month on issues concerning relationship issues, intimacy-related issues, and coping with life changes

She's been amazing, helped me process my feelings and work on the things I needed to heal in order to grow stronger and be content with my life. She was available everyday, I managed to connect with her deeply, she was supportive. I never expected to meet someone who'd have such a big positive effect on my life. I want to continue my journey with her and I trust the lessons I've learnt from her will continue to be useful for my present and future.

Therapy always begins with you wanting to make change. Thérèse goes above and beyond to make sure that you understand that you are not alone, and provide the best advice to knowing how to deal with your problems. If you have any important goals, Thérèse is the best person you could count on to get the best help you need in order to achieve such goals. All you have to do, is just ask. I highly recommend for you to just choose her right now, you will not regret this.

Thérèse has been helping me for almost a month now and so far my experience has been entirely positive. I’ve tried conventional therapy twice before and was let down immensely with the experience. With the BetterHelp platform I’m actually enjoying my sessions/service and am more hopeful for my future now than I have been in an extremely long time. Thérèse’s commitment to my care, availability, and open communication are incredible. I couldn’t be happier with my decision to join BetterHelp, and I’m very glad I was paired with Thérèse.

Written on Jun 05, 2019 after therapy with Thérèse for 7 months on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, self esteem, and career difficulties

Thérèse has helped me through an extremely difficult time, I don't know what I would have done without her. As well as getting me through, we have made some great progress on key aspects. I'm very happy working with her.

Work with me!
