About online counseling

Online counseling allows you to receive care from an online mental health practitioner via phone, video chat, or instant messaging. It is convenient for those who may have trouble getting to or would prefer not to have in-person therapy appointments. Starting at $65 per week, online counseling is generally more affordable than in-person counseling. A study by researchers at University of California, Berkeley found that online counseling can be just as effective as face-to-face therapy while being more convenient, affordable, and accessible.

Overall

TJ is simply the best talk therapist I have ever had the oppotunity to work with. I am a very sensitive person (some might say too sensitive) and I have been completely comfortable and the complete attention he gives each client must be exhausting but it is a powerful and tremendously therapeutic experience. I am a chronic runner from therapy, but this time I have been unable to justify a reaosn to quit on myself, and Thomas never did quit on me so I have to keep moving forward. I clearly think he is a good person, and dont take all of his open spots please! :)

Mr. Schnurman-Crook has a variety of techniques he uses to help me depending on what my presenting problem is at the time. He is insightful and can see past my mask to get to the crux of my issues. He has helped me get my balance back and maintain well being. And I was in pretty bad shape when he got to me. Thank you Betterhelp and Mr. Schnurman-Crook. I tell everybody about Betterhelp and my Therapist. With a variety of ways to interact with your therapist, everyone can fit therapy into their schedule.

I have never felt better to have been connected with Thomas. He listens. He offers more than just clinical advice. He offers thought provoking, outside of the box ideas and ways to make therapy not feel like therapy. 100 stars.

Sep 16, 2023

Overall

Someone who listens and actively tries to understand where you coming from. Very respectable individual. Does not let his viewpoints affect our therapy sessions. He should be an ambassador and a representative for the common people. Knows how to empathize yet tries to work on a plan of action of his choice. One of the many reasons I keep returning to him is because he does not see my mental health issues as weird or unorthodox. He acknowledges your self-doubt and negativity yet still encourages you to change your mindset. Never has he shunned me or shamed me for overthinking, or expressing my inner mind and thoughts.

Overall

TJ has been a great pleasure to work with. He is warm, supportive and personable, he's real with you, which is needed in a therapist. I'd be in a very dark place without him and his expertise. Thank you for all that you give to your patients!
