Alice was an excellent resource for me. She’s empathetic, encouraging but also pushes and challenges and brings great insights to the table to consider.

She’s very proactive and responsive in communications. Would highly recommend.

Alice is the most thoughtful and kinda therapists out there. Anyone would be lucky to work with Alice, and over the past 2 years I have become a better person by working with Alice on Better Help!

I have had just a couple sessions with Alice and I have to say, she has already helped me more than I could possibly think I would have at this point. Alice is caring, an amazing listener and knows exactly how to say things to help you improve yourself. I have been very blessed to have her.
Thank you Alice!

Alice is warm, kind and helpful. She listens but offers solutions. She reads and responds promptly to all messages and journals. She sends uplifting messages and suggestions throughout the week. She always communicates regarding her schedule and office hours. I can tell she loves her job and see that she spends a lot of time making sure her clients feel supported and valued
