Best therapist in the US, especially for anxiety/LGBT
Oustanding listener and person....Aldo is awesome
Aldo is challenging and drives me to make a positive change in my behavior.
Aldo is a great therapist. He brings a ton of energy and humor to every session, and will give you the encouragement, support, and sometimes tough love (if necessary) that you need. He brightens every conversation, no matter how tough, with his humor and vivacious energy. He helps you assess your situation clearly, and then works to help you address the situation in a way that benefits you (whether it be adjusting your mindset, recognizing behavioral patterns, creating boundaries, etc.) I am excited for people who will get to go through their journey with Aldo on their team!
Aldo is the best! If you are in the LGBTQ+ community and suffer from trauma, Aldo has been a such an affirming, positive, & direct voice to provide actionable and uplifting solutions.
Also has been very helpful and is providing me with step by step plan and weekly homework.
If you are looking for someone that can listen and help you quickly identify your next steps please go with him!
Also is fantastic!
Aldo is absolutely amazing and I am so happy to have been connected to him through Better Help. I’ve done therapy before and it’s never felt like this. Thanks to Aldo I would recommend this app to anyone who asks. I love how I’m only 4 weeks Aldo has helped me connect so many dots within my mind in order to get me closer to my goal of inner peace and self love. I’ve been struggling trying to deal with my own mind for years, and thanks to Aldo I FINALLY feel like I understand how to use tools that were already inside of me to achieve the peace I deserve. His personality is sensational. I cry, I laugh, and at the end of each session I feel empowered. 10 out of 10, 5 stars all day for Aldo! :)
Although we have only had 2 sessions because I am so new to Better Help, Aldo has already given me some techniques to be able to work on social anxiety.
Aldo has helped me understand myself and others. His experience and knowledge about CBT techniques has really helped me reduce my anxiety levels and he has taught me how to deal with toxic situations in the workplace, family conversations... etc. His advice had resulted in an overall improve in quality of life. Thanks Aldo for telling me what I need to hear and for understanding my cultural prospective!
Very positive and non judgemental. He gives me tools To work with and always listens. Easy to talk to - Would recommend for sure.
As a semi-young gay man, Aldo has been a great source of guidance and confidence for me. I have made a lot of changes to my life that were thanks to Aldo's guidance and support. He will also keep it real with you and I appreciate that, even if it was sometimes hard to hear. I'd definitely recommend him.
He ‘s a very good counsellor
Takes the time to listen to his clients and very intelligent!
Working with Aldo is amazing! He addresses every concern with clarity, honesty, and unwavering support. Before starting sessions with him, my trauma and anxiety seemed like immovable objects, but he has given me the tools I needed to be a healthy and happy version of myself. Aldo has mastered the art of blending behavioral science with compassion, understanding, and respect. I cannot imagine a better counseling experience.
Aldo is an incredibly professional and experienced therapist. He has taught me so many techniques to live my life in a healthy, confident, and reasonable way.
Before meeting Aldo i treated anxiety like something that i would always have and could only escape temporarily. Now i view anxiety as a symptom of a much deeper state of mind.
Now that I've changed my mindset the anxiety has gone and my social, professional, and intrapersonal relationships have never been better.
He is kind and straight forward. He is helpful and challenges me too. Very prompt with his responses too.
Aldo is insightful and has some good tips. I've been able to implement the techniques he's offered and they have been quite useful.
Also has been very prompt and supportive in his responses to my questions and concerns. I never feel judged nor do I feel that my thoughts and emotions are trivialised. He lets me rant and makes sense of it which has been a big help. Strongly recommend!
He’s been great

Aldo is the personification of a qualified counselor who is confident in his ability, skilled in his delivery of helping you and compassionate and kind as a person. He is excellent and simply the best!
So I was quite nervous when I was talking to Aldo since this was my first time doing this online plus I previously had counseling in school and those were not so helpful whatsoever. I enjoy that Aldo has a lot of experience and he is honest to me and knows how to help me and I trust him. he has helped me look at my life in a different perspective which I didn't think would be possible :) I am so glad I found him as my therapist
I have been working with him for a bit now and he has been very supportive while I try to build trust in a system that has done me immeasurable harm. he asks very good questions and he's good at cutting to the heart of a problem. I highly recommend him for therapy.
This guy really knows his stuff and is a lot better than others I've worked with in the past

He is the best therapist I have ever met. He is very honest and dedicated to his work. He listen carefully, give courage and support the best, also very kind.
It's fair to say that Aldo really gets me and has been a mirror to parts of me that I never saw before. I value his support, insight, sense of humor, compassion and honesty. His style is exactly what I need to break through my own defences and help me see what I'm doing.
Aldo has been great. I’m grateful for his help. I could not have gotten through some of these days without him. ♥️
Aldo has a very interactive style. He makes me feel familiar and open. He does a great job of acknowledging the work I have already done and keeping on track with me evolving and improving. He has very clear support suggestions and tools that I can easily put into practice and I have shared with friends. He makes sure to celebrate positive changes I have made and gives me credit for the work I have done and what I have accomplished so far.
Mr. Hernandez has been excellent! He always makes sure to check in with me and listens carefully.
I've been talking with Aldo for just a couple of weeks now and I already feel better. You can feel his positive energy and the nice person that he is. It just make you feel more positive ! He has explained some concepts and said certain words that I'm gonna keep with me for a long time.
Aldo is an amazing and very engaged counselor, always worried about his patients.
Aldo helped me so quickly and effectively. In the last week I've gone from being okay to feeling great. Thank you Aldo. I have listened to what you said and feel so much better now. Just what I needed in my rough time. Your like a little ray of sunshine in my day. :) Best counsellor I've ever spoke to. So friendly and relatable.
Aldo is an incredible counselor. He's patient and so nice! He made me find my center and really helped me to face most of the problems that were giving me a bad time. I can't thank him enough for his help!
Aldo has helped me hone in on my interpersonal issues and feelings and helped me learn how to properly deal with them. It’s been a short amount of time but I feel like a different (better) person.
I could write 1,000 good things about Aldo and how amazing he has been in supporting my transition.
Aldo is a wizard. He was able to understand every single obstacle and come up with an accurate solution for each one of them in a single session. Magic.
My experience with Aldo has always been positive. I felt that he really tried to understand and hear my concerns in a non-judgmental way. The material he gave me was very useful. I appreciated when he shared bits of his personal life in order to help me progress with mine. He is a very supportive and devoted therapist I would recommend him wholeheartedly.
Aldo is a very high level professional.
Aldo is a brilliant counselor, and I am so glad that BetterHelp assigned him to me. After only a short time he understood my issues, and the healing journey began. I highly recommend him to anyone for his professionalism, his commitment to the therapy sessions and his sensitive and insightful approach to my problems.
Aldo really helped me to make some difficult decisions at a crucial point in my life. I am so grateful!
In the short time I've been working with Aldo, I'm already feeling better about myself. I have a long way to go but Aldo has helped me become more self-aware of my feelings and where they stem from. This understanding of my emotions gives me a sense of security and I have Aldo to thank for that.
Muy atento siempre, abriendo opciones y nuevos caminos. Lo recomiendo
Aldo is great, it's only been a month but so much has changed in my life since I started therapy with him. I particularly like how he guides me towards the answers I seek without actually telling me what I need to do or think. I found him very open minded and approachable!
One of the best therapy experiences of my life.
Aldo is Aldo. An amazing therapist and person. He helped me realize and accept everything that made me worried about myself. The way he talks makes you comfortable to share everything. I've had a lot of therapists in my life, and he's always going to be my favorite and the one that most helped me change my understanding of myself, and that makes all the difference. Thank you for everything. I never learned so much in so little time.
Aldo is just, incredible. He's a great person to have around when I feel completely lost. He's been able to help me better my relationships and work on being a positive, better me. I don't believe I would've gotten as far as I have with out him.
Aldo is one of those people I couldn't be without during this period of my life. He listens to my out burst of emotions and always makes me feel reassured, calm and strong. I honestly can't thank him enough. I also enjoy the fact he feels like I'm just talking to a friend and I can be myself. I don't hide anything from him and I feel safe talking to him. Thank you, Aldo.
Aldo has helped me out a lot. He is very helpful, and I want to thank him for being my counselor and for helping me. He is the best.
Aldo has been very kind to provide me with a 'listening ear' and give me honest feedback. Life can be so overwhelming at times, and Aldo has helped me to think through my options. It makes such a difference to have someone available when I'm hurting and confused.
Words can not express how grateful I'm for signing up and getting Aldo as my counselor. In a matter of weeks, I have managed to feel much more better and see an amazing change in my life. Thank you! You truly are heaven sent.
What makes Aldo special is how warm, friendly and professional he is.
Thank you Aldo Hernandez ! For helping me when I most needed it. You're awesome!
Aldo has been a great support so far and has always given me the advice and acknowledgement when I have needed it. He is knowledgable, kind and takes the time to understand his clients. I am very happy with how far he has helped me to progress in the short 3 weeks I have been speaking with him.
