Dr. Lott is incredibly thoughtful, knowledgeable, empathetic, and wise. I cannot recommend her strongly enough.
She really listens and gives ideas on how to move forward. Very compassionate. I do feel a connection with her.
She personalizes advice and is a great listener. Truly feels like I'm talking to her face to face. She does an amazing job addressing my concerns and after every therapy, I leave feeling a lot more relieved and content with myself.
She’s amazing! Down to earth and gives a very positive experience! Even when things are completely out of control for me, she knows how to bring my feet back to earth!
She is amazing and understanding.
She always responds within a day or two, which is fantastic, and she always picks out what sounds important from my rambling.
In the sessions I’ve had with Dr. Lott, I can only say good things. She’s so patient and really respects the pace you want to take things. Also, if you have a pretty heavy session, she does a beautiful job of making the next session lighter. She’s so thoughtful and really pays attention.
Dr. Lott is absolutely the best! I have been through a couple of other consolers on this site, as well as in person, but no one has been able to help as much as her. When I started using this app, I was in a very very bad place, and I just couldn’t wait to be seen by someone in person. I’m very happy better help linked me with her because I’m sure the path would have been a lot harder without her support.
Dr Lott is fabulous and gets back to messages quickly. She listens and helps provide guidance and value to whatever the topic is. She also is able to provide some insight as to an outsider looking in perspective which helps think through situations more thoroughly.
She made me feel heard and I actually felt like I'm worth it with her talking to me.
Dr. Lott is a kind professional, and a great listener.

I haven’t known Dr. Lott for very long, but I was immediately at ease with her. I have been in counseling in the past but I did not have a very good connection with my therapist. Dr. Lott is knowledgeable, personable, and very supportive. She makes me feel very comfortable and I look forward to our conversations each week.

Right from the start I started to feel better when I started talking about my problems and knowing that you don’t have to feel selfish when you keep talking about yourself is what makes me like working with Dr. Lott-Kamara.
I absolutely love having her, after being so hesitant about trusting a therapist again she got me to trust in them again. She has been so helpful and she always listens to me when I am having a tough time. She prioritizes my needs and I know as well for her other patients. I would totally recommend her and my experience overall has been extremely amazing.
