These quotes represent just a few of the many positive reviews that we have received for Allison Trevino. 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.
I've worked with Allison for over a year across two different therapy platforms. She's patient, knowledgeable, understanding, and has a method of helping you work through your issues in a way I've never experienced. I am by far a healthier version of myself that I've ever been. My wife constantly asks, "When's your next appointment with Allison?" Because even she knows how amazing Allison's been since I started meeting with her.

Ally is very responsive and respectful of my time. She is literally the best therapist I've ever had. She seems to care about me and my life. Thank you ally!

One of the things I do for a living is interview people. On a rare occasion I interview someone incredibly wise and utterly brilliant I could talk to
for hours on end. I’m very happy to say that if I was to interview Allison, she would be one of those rare people. I went through three other counselors before I came across Allison. I didn’t feel enough of an impact after the first session so I requested another counselor. I am so grateful that request did not go through for some reason because she has turned out to be more helpful and beneficial to me than a book with all of my problems and solutions written in it. After working with her I have become a better and healthier person and I honestly don’t even know how it has happened. She is brilliant and I simply cannot recommend her enough.

I've been working with Allison for several months now and she's just been phenomenal. She is a great listener and helps me feel ready to face the challenges I've had. My confidence and day to day life has improved drastically since working with her. I highly recommend her to anyone interested in therapy.

I am so happy to connect with Allison. Allison is patient, understanding, able to get to the heart of the situation, and has techniques to explore communication beyond traditional talk therapy. A session with Allison is like talking to a friend and at the same time a professional who will help you hold yourself accountable to your goals. I look forward to our sessions and feel like I am getting back to my old self a little bit at a time and also growing and moving forward. I also have full coverage insurance for therapy and choose to go through BetterHelp due to this connection and the ability to meet more regularly.
