I have been in and out of therapy for 9 years now. Often leaving or not getting much out of it. It shouldn’t have taken that long but I finally have a counselor I absolutely love. Adrienne has been exactly what I needed. She is amazing and most days I wish I could give her a hug! Best therapist I’ve ever had.

Adrienne is phenomenal! We clicked on the first meeting and she’s been extremely supportive and understanding since. She really takes her time to listen and understand you personally. I feel seen by her and that by itself makes a significant impact in my mental health

Adrienne is very kind and a great listener. I feel like from the first session that she cared about me and genuinely wanted to help me. I wasn't sure what to expect but Adrienne has been a great help over the past couple weeks and it feels great to feel like someone not only wants to help but also is unbiased and not judging me.

Adrienne is awesome. We've been working together for about a month now and I already feel like we're making great progress. I'm looking forward to continuing counseling with her.

Adrienne has been a delight to work with! Sometimes it's hard to connect with your therapist, and feel comfortable opening up . However, Adrienne is so patient and knowledgeable, she has made the process feel seamless. I am comfortable giving both Adrienne and BetterHelp a 10 rating and recommending to friends, because it is apparent that BetterHelp is thoughtful and takes care to properly pair their clients with a therapist specific to their needs. I feel grateful to have been paired with Adrienne.

She’s a good listener, very empathetic and compassionate. I feel like she’s more of a friend than a counselor.
