Alesha was definitely heaven sent. She has helped me work through things I didn’t realize were even there but holding me back. She is a great listener and communicates effectively.

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.

She is pleasant and I feel as though she is a good listener and serious about her work. She is patient with you and easy going with her patient. She understands and pays attention to detail. I’m glad I chose her to guide my steps in the areas where I find I need more work. She is a blessing in disguise.
