Tamara makes me feel calmer and like I’m having a normal response to my problems
Written on Oct 26, 2023 after therapy with Tamara for 1 year and 8 months on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, grief, and coping with life changes
Tamara has made a material difference in my life. I look forward to speaking with her, and I always feel better after we speak. She’s so attentive, and frankly a godsend. I don’t know how she does it all and helps so many people. Tamara walks through my emotions with me, and helps me process the why. She’s so open, and I never feel like I’m being judged and can communicate in a way that’s effective for me. I’ve come to look forward to therapy after being a skeptic for years. Tamara is an amazing therapist and individual. I feel so blessed she found this calling in life.

I have ONLY had a "virtual" relationship with Tamara so far. THIS IS TOTALLY my doing and/or my fault - NOT HERs! However, Tamara has read ALL my journal entries, responded to them, and I feel comfortable ALREADTY with her as my therapist! She has also been persistent in getting me to RESCHEDULE my appts. every time I have canceled, so I know she CARES! RIGHT? I really LOVE how my therapist can "see me here" through my journal entries I write - WHENEVER I feel the need! I have and will CONTINUE to recommend betterhelp to ALL I KNOW who seel therapy!
