Reviews

These quotes represent just a few of the many positive reviews that we have received for Amy Willard. 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.

Amy is a really easy-going and nice therapist, she knows how to make you feel at ease and when it's time to lead the session vs time to listen to you.

You can feel she has quite a lot of experience since she knows which questions to ask and can quickly understand what kind of person you are.

Unfortunately it's not the easiest to book a session with her, but she's always very responsive even with messages!

Work with me!
