I was hesitant to engage the services of a counselor at first, but ultimately I’m glad I did. Furthermore, I’m glad Alejandra was my counselor. She listened to my many issues with genuine interest and offered her insightful thoughts in like manner. She’s the first counselor I’ve ever had, and I believe the multiple sessions I’ve had with her have been very helpful. She certainly made me feel better about my problems. I highly recommend her, and when I restart my subscription with BetterHelp I hope she will continue to be my counselor, not only because I would rather not start over with someone new, but because she made me feel very comfortable discussing my problems with her.

Very insightful, thought provoking and non judgmental. Helps frame my thoughts and focus on things that I need.

Alejandra is so thorough and picks up on things that I didn't even notice. I appreciate her writing style, it makes me feel like she really cares and that she is absolutely invested in me getting better. I am super happy with this website and the counseling I am receiving, thank you so much.
