Making professional counseling accessible, affordable, convenient - so anyone who struggles with life’s challenges can get help, anytime, anywhere.
BetterHelp offers access to licensed, trained, experienced, and accredited psychologists (PhD / PsyD), marriage and family therapists (LMFT), clinical social workers (LCSW / LMSW), and board licensed professional counselors (LPC).
An extensive study by the Berkeley Well-Being Institute found BetterHelp to be as effective as face-to-face counseling.
"My BetterHelp therapist asked the same kinds of thought-provoking questions as the traditional therapists I worked with in the past...she helped me identify anxiety triggers and coping mechanisms much faster than it would have taken had we met only once a week. "
"They messaged her about many of the same issues her face-to-face therapy clients were dealing with, including stress, anxiety and relationship issues, among other concerns, and she messaged them back with questions, feedback, insights and guidance. "
"In the field of psychology, this has been a game changer both for the treatment of patients and for the wellbeing of both patient and mental health providers. Patients have more flexibility, because location and schedule are no longer a barrier, and they have more choice of providers."
"David Kaplan, chief professional officer of the American Counseling Association, believes that technology plays an important and necessary role in the counseling profession...And for clients with conditions like agoraphobia or severe anxiety, online sessions may be the only choice."
"Online or virtual therapy is helpful for people who live in remote areas where there aren't a ton of options for seeing a therapist in person. BetterHelp provides resources for therapists who are all over the country. Also, it's important to see what kind of therapy works best for you."
"BetterHelp is an online counseling website with nearly two million clients."
"One solid option is online counseling. Your friend can find this on BetterHelp. Online therapy can be a wonderful tool for your depressed friend, especially if they are having trouble leaving the house. They will also have greater access to professionals who are competent if they happen to live in a remote area."
"Thank you Jillian for being there and actually listening and accepting me!"
"Michelle is really good. I am getting clarity and I am not afraid to speak up. I am looking forward to continuing my work with her. "
"Finding this venue has been better than an in-office consultation. My counselor is prompt and helpful. Still new to this, but I'm going to stick with it."
"Danielle is experienced and down to earth. I felt she was intuitive and made me comfortable during a tough time."
"Sarah has been awesome with me. A great listener, great feedback and exercises. I'm seeing a difference and she inspires me to want to be better. Thank you Sarah!"
"Catherine is down to earth and very understanding. Great sense of humor, and wide range of helpful resources such as books, and movie references to help and draw from, too. Very helpful and supportive!"
"Stephanie takes time to listen to what I have to say. She adjusts her approach as I become more aware of what is truly bothering me. "
"I appreciate how Leslie thoughtfully builds a knowledge base about me and my concerns. And as much as I value a listening ear, I appreciate how she shares analogies and frameworks for seeing my reactions from a new perspective."
