Dr Lott is simply Amazing!!!!!!

Written by G.A. on Dec 30, 2021 after therapy with Tina for 1 month on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, lgbt, relationship issues, family conflicts, trauma and abuse, self esteem, coaching, and compassion fatigue

She advocated for my Boundries and Self Care like no other has done for me in the past. Whether it was checking in or speaking on deeper issues, I was never concerned that I wouldn’t be taken at my word. She has helped me, so much so that I am able to re-evaluate identities that were ascribed to me, frequently and safely with more positive self talk and a love for my authentic Self. Words simply cannot describe the joy and vibrancy I feel when I finish a session with Dr. Lott.

I’ve just started working with Dr. Lott but really appreciate her professionalism and also her warmth, her support, and intuition. She is such a calm and caring presence, even over the phone and makes you feel instantly comfortable and heard and at ease.

Dr. Lott always communicates well. She takes such great notes and pays attention even more than I do to myself. It always catches me off guard and makes me feel very seen. Can't express enough how lucky I feel to have found her. Life is much better with her on my team.

She always responds within a day or two, which is fantastic, and she always picks out what sounds important from my rambling.

Written by J.A. on Feb 26, 2020 after therapy with Tina for 2 months on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, trauma and abuse, intimacy-related issues, eating disorders, and sleeping disorders

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.

Written by B.R. on Feb 12, 2020 after therapy with Tina for 5 months on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, trauma and abuse, intimacy-related issues, sleeping disorders, self esteem, and bipolar disorder

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 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.

That’s a perfect doctor for me, i am from Russia and psychology is kind of a foreign concept for me, but with Dr. Lott-Kamara I don’t feel strange or weird, I feel good and I feel real progress with her, thank you Doctor and thank you BetterHelp for providing such great service.
