You said I did all the work but Traci but, I want you to know that it was only after we talked for the first time that I felt your sincere desire to want to get to know me. I'm on the phone with people I've never seen all day long and I think I'm really good at reading people. I can hear in your voice that you truly love your work. I get that from you and if I didn't, I'm sure I would not have been comfortable enough. So, thank you for your careful consideration of what I'm trying to communicate, thanks for respecting my intelligence, I certainly respect yours! Thank you for giving me the benefit of the doubt. Thanks for challenging me. Thanks for making me feel so safe! Thanks for respecting me. Thanks for keeping it mixed up. Thanks for not trying to slow me down. Thanks for really wanting to listen. And thanks for letting me drive wherever I want. Thanks for challenging yourself and staying current in your field. I've tried therapy exactly 4 times and I was not inclined to say any of the above about my other therapists. Now, maybe I wasn't ready to do my work back then or maybe I was . . . but, I will never know because I didn't get from any of them, what I get from you. I'm so grateful to have found you here on betterhelp!

Traci is truly amazing she helped me out of a really difficult time and helped me get back on track with my life. I will forever be grateful for her wisdom and support. She was incredibly supportive and understanding I really couldn’t have asked for a better therapist. Thank you Traci
