These quotes represent just a few of the many positive reviews that we have received for Amanda Kayes-Carson "Kayes". 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.

Amanda is a huge help to me. She easily connects past events to current behaviors. It seems I have many issues going on at once and we tackle one or more each week. I feel so much better after a session and look forward to the next as I live and love and fail and succeed at many things in 7 days. She raises my awareness of tendencies and behaviors that are not serving me.

Yes. Amanda is a huge help.

Amanda has stood by my side through a nasty divorce. She makes it a point to listen and offers insight where she see fit. She commends progress and highlights your weak points to promote more growth. She truly cares about making sure you make the progress you want to make! She is a blessing!

Amanda Kaye’s is understood my issues rapidly even if I had a hard time explaining a ton with so much overwhelm in my life. She made me feel understood, appreciated as a human being, and was quick to identify so many solutions that were eye opening. Great listener and very patient.
