Willie is a good therapist. He combines science based knowledge, common sense, and experience. Great listener and counselor.
Willie is the man! I am in a way better place now than I was back when I started therapy with teen counseling in October—and I have him to thank for that! 100/10, recommended ;)!
Willie is a wonderful listener and can gather discussion points for you after just a few sessions. He asks questions which are helpful to see problems through a different (and often more productive) lens.
Willie is the man! Has great experience in his life and is an awesome listener.
mr whited has been helping and supporting me for about a month now, providing me with research and support along with listening to what i have to say. i am happy i was matched with such a therapist. eventually ill have to leave this app, but i can say mr whited is a great help if youre matched with him. hes very patient as well!!! thank you for your help mr whited :>
Very helpful and calming. Wants to get to know you
He help me identify weakness concerning interpersonal relationships and provided ways to strengthen coping mechanisms in moving forward, I highly recommend!
This was our initial meeting. I appreciated that his feedback was both conversational and had direct impact upon my thoughts
Willie is very easy to talk with and provides great insight to help me process my thoughts.
The last two years have taken its toll on healthcare workers, especially nurses. My combined professional challenges, history of trauma, personal challenges, and social isolation led me to a dark place. I felt quite scared that I was losing myself and teen counseling was at my fingertips. I was connected with Willie Whited who literally saved my life. He empowered me to learn strategies to overcome triggers, manage anxiety and depression, and most importantly, self compassion and love. Willie is an amazing man and therapist who truly listens and empowered me to find my best version of myself while learning strategies to tackle life’s problems, big and small. Willie truly saved my life and helped me reconnect with my purpose. I believe his impact will last a lifetime; I am grateful for his thoughtful listening, kindness, compassion, and even a little humor. I appreciated his honesty and keen observations, it’s refreshing to have such a warm and compassionate therapist.
Amazing therapist! Unfortunately due to recent knowledge of better health I have to leave rbis app but willie is wonderful
Mr. Whited is very knowledgeable and compassionate toward my situation. I wished that my work offered more sessions than just 3. He is awesome he listens and ask questions. Which is exactly what I needed, since I was lost in my situation.
I appreciate Dr Whited. He’s very responsive and is willing to do what is necessary to get the most out of couples counseling. Thank you.
Very supportive and devoted to help and service
Willie has been an excellent therapist so far that listens to my concerns and addresses them appropriately.
empathetic and listens, has been a wonderful experience to work with him
Great guy, you can tell he enjoys what he does and that you’re not just another client. He actually listens and gives you resources you can apply to help get you through tough situations.
Great success thus far.. only 3 weeks in.. very informative and helps with self awareness.
Willie is an outstanding counselor. He has an amazing ability to listen and is extremely patient. His advice and recommendations are very insightful and helpful. He also stays in touch regularly and ensures like a coach that he provides various methods for overcoming challenges contributing to stress, anxiety, and depression. I'm forever thankful for Willie's help.
Willie was able to understand my needs in a couple of sessions and shared lot of useful information that helped me see things from a more optimistic perspective.
Down to earth kinda guy. Listens well and remembers. Talks with me not to me. Enjoy my councelor
Willie has been kind, caring and compassionate with me. And he's not afraid to redirect me in a way that offers much needed perspective.
Great follow through
I've worked with Willie for a little over a month now, and I have to say that I look forward to every conversation we have together. His experience, expertise, and commitment to the betterment of his clients are noticed and appreciated.
Mr. Whited is working out well.
Mr. Whited has been excellent. I am hesitant by nature to trust in counseling. However Mr. Whited has been very helpful in settling me down so I can avoid full on crisis. My trajectory has immediately changed for the better.
