"So far Melanie has been great! I truly feel like I can talk to her without judgement and I am slowly allowing myself to do that. "
"After my first session with James I felt like a huge weight had been lifted from my shoulders. I felt like I finally found someone willing to listen to me, truly listen to me and help me on my path to a better me. He always has great advice and I felt comfortable with him from the start of our first session. "
"Christine is such a great counselor and I'm lucky to have her."
"Tanya is amazing. She listens to whatever is going on in your life and is very informative and easy to get along with. It’s never a one sided conversation and I can appreciate that. She genuinely cares about you and your well being. She takes the time out of her busy schedule to personally check in. I have tried counseling before and was not satisfied. I was a little nervous and skeptical about online therapy to begin with. However, I am glad I decided to try it. Tanya has been an absolutely blessing so far. "
"Since getting paired with Sonya I’ve learned so much about how to manage anxiety, self-care and finding a balance. I don’t think I could have coped with this pandemic without her help. "
"Rachel is truly amazing! She is so thoughtful and sweet. I really couldn’t have a better counselor. "

Which therapist is right for me?
Finding the right therapist for you can seem overwhelming, but you can narrow down your search by considering what type of therapy you’d like to pursue. Even if that means you’d be more comfortable communicating with a male or female therapist, take a few minutes to read through some counselor profiles to see their different areas of expertise, their philosophies on counseling, and learn a little more about them. If you feel like your matched counselor isn’t the right one for you, you can choose to match with a different counselor at any time.
