She cares and checks up on me which always gives me hope.
Tia is great!
Tia is extremely helpful and thoughtful.
Tia has been extremely helpful & understanding. I feel she has a very good insight with all of my challenges from my chronic health issues to mental health that I deal with daily. She is very understanding & responsive.
She understands what I want to work on and I feel open to tell her pretty much anything.
Tia's expertise and attitude has helped me tackle some of the most challenging thoughts I have, and have dramatically changed my life and mentality for the better. I'm so thankful I signed up for BetterHelp and found her.
I was always scared of therapy because I had bad experiences before where I felt misunderstood. I am happy to have someone who supports me getting closer to who I really am.
Tia Manning has been extremely helpful. I highly recommend her.
Tia has been great. It' so convenient to be able to schedule sessions that work for me.
Tia is always so understanding and really helpful as she provides a number of options and ways to solve an ongoing issue. Personally, I’ve always found it hard expressing my feelings and thoughts but I felt understood by her.
Tia is very nice and patient. She does her best to not only respond in a timely manner but she tries to make you feel as comfortable as possible.
With the help that Tia has given me, I have been able to better appreciate what it really means to have the confidence in oneself to begin to be the person I really am. She has helped me with breaking boundaries in my life that have caused me so much distress and unhappiness in the past. I now feel so much more confident to act on the things in life that are important to me and not just continually try to please others at the expense of my happiness. I truly feel like I have made significant progress to become the person I really am and want to be.
I like how my counselor helps me with my concerns and provides me with useful educational materials
