Dr. Adeline McTavous has been such a blessing in my life. Without her I don't know where I would be at this point in my life. She has kept me grounded in ways that has helped me get out of a situation I thought I was lost in. She not only listens to everything I am going through, she helps give me guidance and direction when I need it most. I will forever be grateful for having been blessed to have Dr. Adeline McTavous as my therapist. The only reason I am able to stand strong in this time of my life is because of her. She reminds me, each time, to never forget who I am and my selfworth and that in itself keeps me pushing forward and to never give up. The peace of mind she has given me through her kindness, compassion and the way she listens, her guidance and understanding of my situation keeps me is what keeps me going and my spirt high. She is my savor, my light, my angel! I am forever grateful to have her!

Dr. McTavous has given me great relief in my times dealing with grief, anxiety, relationship issues etc.. she always feels very comforting and like she really cares

Written by A.M. on Mar 10, 2021 after therapy with Adeline for 1 year and 1 month on issues concerning grief

As a Church Pastor, I find BetterHelp to be a reliable place to refer people to. As someone who is grieving myself (widowed) I make use of the convenience of talking with an excellent listener outside of my normal church circles. My Counsellor, Adeline, has been supportive and encouraging. I dont feel I have to meet any expectations and I can just receive her goodwill and comfort. Counselling is often about what we bring to the table ourselves. I dont need someone to tell me how to fix everything. I do need someone to reflect with and help me feel more confident about being more fully myself. We have developed a healthy relationship of respect and I always feel supported.
