I’m not going to lie, I was skeptical of doing therapy because I do not like opening up. Raven is the best therapist I could’ve asked for. She definitely puts things in perspective and makes me really think and her deep into my feelings. She has helped me more than she knows and I am so grateful I found this app!

She is great so far. I feel like we are just getting to know each other, but already she has been very insightful, picking up on little things that are the crux of the issue before I could articulate that, even to myself.

I had my first live session with Raven and I have never felt more comfortable with a therapist. She is kind and you can tell that she is listening and cares about what you are saying and feeling. I love that she challenges me with questions and makes me think. She is extremely easy to talk to and very welcoming. Really happy I was connected with her and would recommend her to anyone! Thank you Raven!!

I am very happy with my counselor/therapist. She makes you feel heard and provides tools to get you through tough situations. Very insightful, honest, and knowledgeable! Definitely would recommend Ms. Brown-McKinney (LCSW, CLC)

She has been very helpful with getting me to focus on what's best for me, rather what others think what's best for me. I highly appreciate that.

My counselor is very insightful and is trustworthy. She is easy to talk to regarding our concerns and she is excellent in reminding us that we want to reach our final goals and in giving information to attain them. She is highly recommendable!

Dr. Brown-McKinney has been such a great help in giving me and my significant other a safe and supported space and objective guidance to lead us back toward each other during a really hard time. She was so clearly invested in pointing us towards thoughts and actions that serve us both as individuals and as a couple and having someone like that to help navigate through what could have been really disastrous was so invaluable.
