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."
"I feel so much better after just one session with Yolanda. She is great with listening and asking questions to get more clarity on what I’m explaining to her. I can’t wait for our next session!"

"Antionette is amazing. After every session, I leave feeling heard and like I have been given the right tools to maintain a healthy state of mind. "
"Sarah gives you the help you need. She’s very real and that is exactly what people including myself need. "
"She's very punctual and makes me feel comfortable enough to actually open up to, which is something I've never felt about a counselor before. She's really down to earth and relatable. "
"Gerry Watson is a man who understands all kinds of people. He is patient with those who suffer from persistent mental illness and uses various tactics to properly treat his patients."
"Michael has been an amazing person to work with. He is incredibly caring and very quick to respond to messages. I would recommend him to anyone seeking help and needing some guidance in life. "
"Brandon has helped me significantly, even within just a few sessions he has helped me! He’s very knowledgeable and willing to listen to whatever concerns you may have."
