I’ve only had a few sessions so far, but every time Dr. Dobson has made me feel heard and understood. I appreciate that he takes his time to ask questions and give meaningful, educated responses and presents useful information in a way I understand. I absolutely adore him and I’m excited to continue my healing journey with him as a guide.

Before I decided to sign up for therapy, I was extremely hesitant because I was worried I wouldn’t be able to open up to anyone. After meeting Dr. Dobson, I began to feel more willing and comfortable to discuss my feelings, emotions, and anything else I needed guidance with. Dr. Dobson is a genuinely kind and caring individual that has only the best intentions in mind. He is very patient, encouraging, and personable. Thank you for helping me find myself once again.

Dr. Dobson has changed my life in ways I didn’t know was possible. I have seen many therapists over the years and given up each and every time. BetterHelp + Dr. Dobson was my last attempt. I couldn’t be happier. He is professional, knowledgeable, and personable. He talks to me like a human and addresses my issues and concerns in ways that make me feel heard, validated, and valuable. I always feel so much better after our sessions. He truly has guided me on my path to healing, and I couldn’t be more thankful.

Dr. Dobson is the first therapist I've been to that actually treats me as an individual rather than a number. He's willing to revise his opinion and recommendations based on new information. He's not so stuck in his gut instinct that he ignores new things you tell him, which was my main issue with therapists in the past. I actually feel like I'm getting somewhere with him, and that's a very new experience.

Written by J.O. on Nov 09, 2021 after therapy with William for 2 weeks on issues concerning self esteem, and coping with life changes

I absolutely enjoy Dr. Dobson! He understands my very well and gives effective insight and guidance! I would more than happy to recommend him to my friends and family!

Dr. Dobson is awesome. He is so funny and easy to talk to. You actually feel heard and understood by him. He always has great insight and can quickly understand how you think and why you think that way.

Excellent therapist. Listens and helps with so many deep issues. Would recommend him and would work with him again!

Dr. Dobson is very insightful and directs the session in a style that is helpful to me and has allowed me to reveal and deal with issues that are difficult to discuss. I highly recommend him as he has helped me in just a few sessions. I plan to continue treatment which in an of itself is a recommendation. It’s hard to seek help and easy to quit if you don’t have a good counselor. If you need help reach out to Dr. Dobson he is one of the good ones.

Written by K.R. on Jun 26, 2021 after therapy with William for 2 months on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, intimacy-related issues, self esteem, and coaching

Dr. Dobson is great. I feel like for the first time in my history of seeking profession help he actually understands me. We have yet to get into the nitty gritty but that’s partially my fault with having a hard time of opening up.

Written by C.O. on Jun 04, 2021 after therapy with William for 3 weeks on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, relationship issues, family conflicts, intimacy-related issues, and parenting issues

Dr. Bill has been fantastic as a counselor! When I started with BetterHelp I wasn't sure how it would work or if I would like it. Getting Dr. Bill as my counselor helped assuage all my fears and worries. He was super responsive and helpful, always approaching my needs with kindness, openness, and often humor to lighten the mood. I would recommend Dr. Bill to anyone! Thank you for your skilled technique and help. I really appreciate it all.

Dr. Dobson is the first therapist that completely has listened to me, and makes me feel safe and able to be honest without judgement or any negative remarks. He makes it fun to talk to him and I really like that. I wish I met him much sooner, but I am so grateful to get to be able to talk to him now. I actually feel like I might get better finally. He is an amazing man and would recommend him to everyone.
