|Starr Baldwin MA, LPC|
"I enjoy my sessions;I feel that I am learning to accept situations easier. I enjoy talking to Starr about anything I wish to discuss and feeling that she cares."
"Brittany has been very helpful in our sessions to explain and ensure that I understand all homework and advice that she gives me. She is very motivating. "
"Really amazing counselor--I'm working through some lows/difficult points and she has definitely done a great job listening, and made me feel valid in my life. She has also been active in helping to make steps towards improvements, and never felt judged for my own quirks, etc. I've tried talking to other therapists in the past, but Shelley is definitely the most professional/an overall great fit for me. Best therapist I've talked to! "
|Emily SchwimmerM.A., LMFT|
"I highly recommend Emily to anyone that needs help getting through a tough time in their lives. I picked Emily based on her profile and I am so glad I did. She was exactly what I needed at a point in my life where I felt completely lost and had no control over my emotions. She taught me things about myself and helped me better manage my emotions. She helped me understand my emotions and how to react to them in a positive way. I am very grateful that I found Emily when I did and will always remember the things she taught me. "
"Responsive, Perceptive; sets and meets / exceeds expectations Robin has been extremely responsive via chat/mail; I've generally prefaced each video session with a chat/mail to focus myself / the 30-minute video sessions and she has always showed up on-time / early, clearly prepared to discuss, and generally "on-the-ball". I couldn't recommend Robin more highly. BetterHelp.com's convenience, flexibility, intuitive interface, seamless video conferencing, and client-oriented customer service have generally been superior to any in-person counseling I've sought previously.
