Written by A.S. on Feb 05, 2022 after therapy with Theodore for 2 months on issues concerning stress, anxiety, relationship issues, intimacy-related issues, eating disorders, self esteem, and anger management

Wish a face to face session was possible (not virtually). Best therapist I’ve ever had. Listens, provides silence when needed - the most vulnerable I’ve ever felt in a therapy session which has allowed a lot of growth.

Ted made me feel at ease from our first interaction. He is always flexible and understanding,very knowledgeable and always adopts the right tone and attitude. He always makes sure that he understands what I m expressing,lifts my mood with humour when needed and has a very friendly manner

I feel like Ted goes beyond and above to be a great therapist. I truly feel lucky to have been paired up with him. I have always been pretty surprised with how much he remembers of the things I’ve told him. I also really like how he motivates me with my work/professional life. I originally joined BetterHelp while dealing with a personal relationship issue and Ted has helped me with way more in my life.

Ted has been absolutely amazing to work with. His warm and friendly demeanor makes opening up easy and makes the sessions comfortable when working through difficult areas. Ted listens well and provides helpful feedback along with applicable tools. He answers messages in a timely manner and often sends check in messages throughout the week. I really appreciate his weekly messages providing further information and tools regarding anxiety/depression. Overall I highly recommended working with Ted!

I went through a couple therapist on the platform before Ted. He's exactly what I needed. He's been able to support me on many different topics and challenges me. I can say that he's definitely made a difference in my life.

Written by J.E. on Dec 23, 2021 after therapy with Theodore for 2 months on issues concerning depression, addictions, grief, self esteem, and career difficulties

Ted is an excellent therapist. I have made visible progress in just a few months. I feel like Ted actually cares and that trait makes a difference. He is easily accessible and flexible with therapy formats, which has been extremely helpful. I am grateful for Ted’s experience, guidance and the fact that he is easy to talk with.

Ted does a fantastic job making me feel comfortable enough to talk and allows small amounts of silence to allow processing and digesting topics or information. He has a great attitude and genuinely seems to care about his client.

Very patient, kind, supportive but also not afraid to challenge bad thinking.

Written by B.E. on Aug 31, 2021 after therapy with Theodore for 2 weeks on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, intimacy-related issues, self esteem, and coping with life changes

I appreciate that Ted has useful insights, and is willing to engage with me on my own terms, without judgment.

Written by J.E. on Nov 17, 2020 after therapy with Theodore for 6 months

Listens without judgement. Helps me to focus on my needs and goals. Does not insert his opinion of how I should handle the issues causing me distress in my life.

Written by E.R. on Sep 22, 2020 after therapy with Theodore for 5 months on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, and grief

Theodore is extremely helpful and easy to talk to. He understands me and has got to know me as a person. I would highly recommend him to anyone.

He has helped me survive week after week and helped me see what I already knew but had a hard time accepting. He is always there to help me if I need help. A Saint to say the least

Written by J.E. on Nov 04, 2019 after therapy with Theodore for 2 months on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, relationship issues, trauma and abuse, grief, intimacy-related issues, sleeping disorders, and self esteem

Theodore has been absolutely amazing. I have grown leaps and bounds with his support over the last few months. I am so thankful for him and BetterHelp.

Written by B.O. on Oct 15, 2019 after therapy with Theodore for 1 month on issues concerning depression, family conflicts, and self esteem

From day one, Theodore Faneuff has consistently excelled in my expectations as my online therapist.

During our weekly hour-long sessions, he would listen very carefully to my exact words, analyze my micro-expressions, and body language and used the Cognitive Model to counteract these negative, self-limiting thoughts.

Session after session, my thoughts about being unintelligent, unproductive, un-dateable slowly started turning around.

Overall, Ted is everything you'd want in a professional 5/5 therapist!

Written by J.O. on Sep 10, 2019 after therapy with Theodore for 2 weeks on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, intimacy-related issues, and coping with life changes

Ted has been a compassionate and passionate guide during this troubling time. His insights and calming words have allowed me to step back and really assess why my emotional responses are what they are. His Christian faith and integration of God’s word into his guidance have been great comforts. I was skeptical of this mode of counseling but I am no longer skeptical. I am a strong supporter. And Ted is in large measure responsible for that.

Written by P.G. on Sep 08, 2019 after therapy with Theodore for 2 weeks on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, relationship issues, grief, self esteem, and coping with life changes

Theo has been very supportive & non judgemental as he helps me through a trouble time in my personal life. All I really want is someone to offload my thoughts to & get some perspective & support & he has been great in offering both of those without judgement.

I would and have already recommended BetterHelp to my friends. It is so nice to get a message from a professional, in my case Theodore. My counselor is very knowledgeable and understanding. Theodore and I haven’t even dug deep into my past, but have already dealt with emotions on the exterior after only a couple of weeks. I am very happy that I downloaded BetterHelp.

Written by P.E. on Sep 08, 2019 after therapy with Theodore for 2 weeks on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, parenting issues, and anger management

Though I just started with Ted I already feel like I made a great choice in working with him. I have had a couple of other counselors in the past that I never really connected with. Even though I haven't even had my first initial session with Ted, our messaging back and forth has made me feel connected, and feel like he is the best person I could be working with to help with my issues. I can tell he truly cares and is dedicated to helping as much as possible.

Written by T.I. on Aug 24, 2019 after therapy with Theodore for 2 weeks on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, family conflicts, and parenting issues

Very caring and provides really good insight and perspective to difficult situations.

Work with me!
