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."
"Lourdes was supportive and provided good suggestions for coping. She helped me work on my self esteem and life outlook."
"I’m in a much better place, in every way, thanks to Aracely. I would recommend her wholeheartedly to anyone who needs counseling."
"Elle is a great source of support. She provides useful tools to help me navigate difficult situations. She is open and encouraging and is really helping me."
"Elaine is the best. She always helps me work through my problem with guidance and humor. I always leave a session feeling better and with clarity."
"Polly helped me restore confidence in myself, and has guided me in dealing with a very stressful and difficult time. "
"Christen has been so incredibly helpful, kind and a great counselor for me. I can't tell you how much therapy with her has improved my mental health."
"Charles is very professional and respects the understanding of my issues. He also accommodates the time and formats of our discussions and meetings. "
"Alexis is great. She listens but also is able to be honest and try to help. I really like speaking with her and I feel like she helps me work on myself. "
