About Me

Hello, my name is Twila Quaid.

You will not have to go through this journey alone, you will be met with compassion and understanding to find peace. I will honor your own pace & process, and help you transform and infuse your life to give it new meaning. It’s ok if right now you feel anxious, scared, lost, depressed, or alone, you have come to the right place.

I have worked to raise awareness and help families who have children with mental health issues. I can help assist kids and teens as they struggle to define their identities. This also includes coping with the rapid physical, emotional and psychological changes that take place within themselves and adjust to the demands of peers, schools, families and society.


I am a licensed mental health counselor in the state of New York. I am glad you are here and am looking forward to working with you. I have been practicing CBT with people for over 5 years. I work with young people, teens, couples, individuals, and the elderly. I am easy going, but also a good motivator, am positive, and energetic.

In addition to my education, I bring to the counseling experience, faith, creativity, and a diverse background, while facilitating personal growth, self- empowerment and searches for life directions. Through counseling, you can begin to learn ways to balance the demands of your life more successfully.

Twila is a very compassionate person. I appreciate her for empathizing with me in my particular situation. Sometimes all you need to know is that you're not alone in your struggle.

I have had a number of face-to-face counselors over the years. When I decided to take the free trial here, I honestly was not expecting much. To my surprise, trying this format has been one of the best decisions of my life. Twila has helped me more in a few months than all of my face-to-face counselors did in many years. Her attention to detail, caring nature, intelligence, responsiveness, sense of humor, and ability to create thought-provoking discussions has been invaluable to me.

Well, my daughter started counseling with Twila just a couple of weeks ago, and I'm starting to see some changes in her attitude, she is more cheerful, engaging more in talking with her sister and family which make me feel so happy.

Twila is a great counselor. She lets me speak and responds to all my concerns. She asks what I want to talk about and answers all my questions.

Twila is great at encouraging communication and she faithfully reaches out to help you. She is not pushy and gives you space and time to communicate while letting you know she cares.

Twila ask a lot of questions and that helps me understand my own situations better since they are questions I should be asking myself.

Twila Quaid was very helpful to me while we worked together. She was able to take my problem and let me divide it up and piece it up again. It helped me out a lot.
She was always cheerful in her texts and positive in her responses.

I had a rough start with this app, the original counselor I did not feel any connection was being built, nor did I feel like that person was particularly listening or paying attention to what I was saying. It seemed very much like what was the quickest way to treat me that they could move on to the next patient. So I opted to find someone else to work with. And I chose Twila. And it has been the most liberating experience. She has been so warm and kind, I feel like I could not have made a better choice. Working with her has just been so lovely, and has really put some of my anxieties at ease, just knowing she’s there to listen. Even though we are just starting to work together, I couldn’t ask for anyone better.

She’s wonderful & fully understands my needs. She is super flexible with scheduling and responds multiple tines throughout the day which I never would’ve expected. She is easy to talk to and somehow gently gets you to talk about things you haven’t discussed in years!
