I wouldn't have it any other way...Alesha is not bias and she listens. And I love her personality. I have so much more I could say about her but to sum it up , therapy was one of the best decisions I've made in my life. She helped me through alot and I thank you Alesha from the bottom of my heart. May God continue to bless you

Written on Sep 30, 2022 after therapy with alesha for 7 months on issues concerning stress, anxiety, grief, eating disorders, coping with life changes, and adhd

Alesha has been wonderful and I can't say enough about my experience with her as my therapist. I know that I could not have been so successful in my path to better mental health over the last 8 months if it had not been for her intuitive insight. She always knew exactly what exercises and practices I needed to work on. Even when I wasn't sure how some may help, I soon realized how I had grown doing them. Alesha is a true professional and I had no trouble talking to her without feeling judged or any scrutiny. She always helped me navigate my feelings and how to deal with them properly. She was thorough, kind, friendly, and a great listener. She understood my feelings and even the path of my thoughts that caused me such grief while going through a harrowing experience. After that experience was over, she helped me quickly recover and grow from it; now I'm ready to move on to a new place, with a new spirit for a better tomorrow. Alesha has helped me turn a new page in my life, keeping it positive, peaceful, and grateful. I am very happy that I turned to Betterhelp for my needs, because I know Alesha was the right therapist for me. I just can't imagine being able to get through my hard time without her in my corner. She made it all easier and helped me to find meaning and growth from my experiences. I am absolutely grateful for this opportunity to be available to me in this platform, where I was the most comfortable at home in my own space. She is a valuable member of your team, don't ever lose her, because she is exactly what your company needs to be successful. This entire experience has been great for me. I did the homework, some journaling along the way which I also found therapeutic, and I also attended a few groupinars. Sometimes their subjects were helpful to me and some I just found to be interesting, but they gave me an outlet I felt was comforting and safe. I don't think that I could have gone to a therapist in the traditional setting and have gotten this far so soon. With the added practices and features, it all lent to a quicker recovery for me. Again, I am very grateful for this experience and I'm extremely grateful to Alesha for being there for me and guiding me through a very tough time in my life. She is a shining gem and truly passionate about her profession. Thank goodness I found Betterhelp and Alesha when I needed it most.

Alesha has been a miracle worker. She is calm, smart, and genuine. I have enjoyed my sessions and feel that we have made significant progress.

Unfortunately, BetterHelp would not allow me to message her without receiving payment to thank her after our final session.

Thank you, Alesha. I look forward to working with you in the future.
