These quotes represent just a few of the many positive reviews that we have received for Allison Burnam. We don't pay anyone to provide their review and they are all made voluntarily. Some people's experience receiving therapy with BetterHelp might be different.

From day one, Allison’s listening practice, and the interest in my concerns she displayed has been genuine. Allison’s demeanor is welcoming and calming. Her recall and effort to follow up on past discussions to check on progress has been effective. The tools Allison provided for me to use, in the event of a peak levels of anxiety, and to practice using when times are good have really made a difference.
While I know I still need these sessions, I also know I’m better now thanks to Allison and the services she provides through BetterHelp. All of the highlights and attributes I previously mentioned are important to me, and have been a game changer for my life. I believe Allison would provide a life changing experience to anyone who would be fortunate enough to have Allison as a therapist.

Allison is extremely kind and very thoughtful. She’s a great listener and also provides really helpful advice and ideas for how to manage whatever it is you’re struggling with. She’s been nothing short of great!

This year has been full of a lot of changes, growing pains, and stress - Allison has been so supportive in helping me navigate all of it! She uses all the tools BetterHelp has and I am so grateful I can send her a message when I am having a bad day.

Allison is great, however I wish I could schedule sessions in Better Help more than just once at a time in advance to help with consistency and keep a regular schedule.
