These quotes represent just a few of the many positive reviews that we have received for Akilah Martin. We don't pay anyone to provide their review and they are all made voluntarily. Some people's experience receiving therapy with BetterHelp might be different.

Akilah is amazing! I am a person of faith and believe that God works through people and I believe that the work she does is beyond knowledge and training, but a God given gift. She counsels with honesty but compassion, and challenges you in ways that are best for your growth. I highly recommend. Money very well spent!

Written on Nov 22, 2023 after therapy with Akilah for 1 year and 3 months on issues concerning stress, anxiety, addictions, relationship issues, trauma and abuse, intimacy-related issues, self esteem, and coping with life changes

Akilah is amazing! I can’t say enough great things about her. I feel like I can really speak my mind without fear or judgement and really take the guidance/homework she offers to heart. I can feel myself slowly healing and I really do owe a lot of that to Akilah. She lets me feel all my feelings and doesn’t ever make me feel invalid. Having another person, who is non bias, has been super helpful for me. I get into my own head and she helps me realize the bigger picture of it all. And on top of all that, she is very understanding and flexible if a session ever needs to change. I cannot recommend Akilah or BetterHelp more, both have helped me in so many ways.

Very helpful and great counselor. I love that she’s very active through text and messages. Most of us come to the app for that exact reason. And, she’s been super understanding. I highly recommend

Akilah is very professional and knowledgeable about my concerns and issues. I feel I'm able to share my concerns without judgment which makes it very easy to talk to her. I would highly recommend her to someone else in need of counseling.
