Reviews

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

Written by D.A. on Jun 22, 2022 after therapy with Andrew for 2 months on issues concerning stress, anxiety, relationship issues, and intimacy-related issues

Andrew is wonderful. He provides a listening ear and his expertise is multi-faceted. He has truly helped me through a very difficult time period in my life. I’ve recognized that the intense stress I was once feeling has minimized greatly and I’ve been able to really focus on myself/gain better control over my emotions. He is a great human being and therapist! I highly recommend to anyone.

Written by G.R. on Apr 22, 2022 after therapy with Andrew for 2 weeks on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, relationship issues, self esteem, career difficulties, coping with life changes, coaching, and adhd

Andrew cares. He's earnest in his approach to helping you on your terms and committed to offering a variety of ways of helping you on your journey beyond just the sessions themselves: wide range of available meeting times, supplemental resources and interacting with journal entries and incorporating them into your sessions. He takes notes on what is discussed in sessions and builds, rather than simply showing up. He is a good person who makes himself vulnerable by sharing examples of his own relatable struggles and shortcomings. I respect him because he takes his work and helping people seriously.

Written by E.D. on Apr 07, 2022 after therapy with Andrew for 1 year and 2 months on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, relationship issues, eating disorders, self esteem, career difficulties, and coping with life changes

Andrew understands well where I am coming from, by listening to me, he adapts the conversation accordingly and we really do get down to the root of things often. Sometimes in the first round, sometimes in a second session. But he allows me to express fully, and we put things to sleep before moving on, not leaving anything undealt with. He is thorough, and patient. Feel like I’ve known him for years quite often.

Written by A.N. on Mar 31, 2022 after therapy with Andrew for 1 year and 3 months on issues concerning depression, addictions, lgbt, trauma and abuse, grief, eating disorders, and self esteem

As someone who has worked with over 10 therapists before age 22, I feel that Andrew is one of the best I've worked with. He actively listens, knows when and when not to push with questions, respectfully disagrees, and is available to fit my sporadic schedule.
Therapists are not one size fits all, but I highly recommend you allow him a chance to help you in journey.

Written by A.T. on Mar 24, 2022 after therapy with Andrew for 7 months on issues concerning addictions, and trauma and abuse

Andrew is intuitive, and a great listener with a lot of wisdom. He offers timely advice and has countless resources that he offers in my journal after each session. I also really appreciate when he reaches out at the start of the week… makes me feel like I got someone in my corner rooting for me to succeed.

Written by T.I. on Mar 14, 2022 after therapy with Andrew for 1 month on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, relationship issues, family conflicts, intimacy-related issues, career difficulties, and coping with life changes

Andrew is down to earth and understanding. He helps put things into perspective when you can’t quite make sense of your feelings or “why”.
He has a sense of humor that is therapeutic. I appreciate him checking in through out the week and keeping the lines of communication open outside of the scheduled “talk time”. He responds in a timely manner and has flexible scheduling if the times don’t always work. Highly recommended.

Written by A.U. on Feb 16, 2022 after therapy with Andrew for 2 weeks on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, and intimacy-related issues

I have only had two sessions so far with Andrew, but I am already feeling like I am getting on a better track! Andrew and I click very well and I feel that he truly listens and understands me!

Written by T.I. on Jan 29, 2022 after therapy with Andrew for 1 month on issues concerning depression, relationship issues, grief, parenting issues, and coping with life changes

I've been working with Andrew for a couple of months now on a weekly schedule and I love working with him! He's helped me so much on my healing journey after desperation. He helps me look at things in a different perspective and hives me very good insight. Hes extremely easy to talk and relate too! I 1000% recommend Andrew to anyone!

Written by N.A. on Jan 26, 2022 after therapy with Andrew for 3 weeks on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, relationship issues, family conflicts, and trauma and abuse

Andrew is very personable, kind, and compassionate. He has a wonderful ability to make me feel valued and heard. I’m truly thankful that I was matched with him. I have looked forward to our sessions weekly and his upbeat personality is a definite bonus! I’m really happy that he is open and honest with me and that he “gets me” as a human. Thanks Andrew!

Written by K.E. on Jan 18, 2022 after therapy with Andrew for 2 weeks on issues concerning stress, anxiety, depression, family conflicts, trauma and abuse, adhd, and eating disorders

Only a session in but I am most impressed by the messaging and checking in I get from my therapist! I have NEVER had that and this actually feels like a connection. My only concern is I don't think my insurance is accepted which may have to end things early

Written by M.A. on Jan 16, 2022 after therapy with Andrew for 2 months on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, anger management, career difficulties, and coaching

Andrew is a great fit. He is understanding and empathetic and yet gives me strength and toughness when I need it. I’m very appreciative of his support and help.

Written by A.N. on Jan 12, 2022 after therapy with Andrew for 5 months on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, relationship issues, family conflicts, self esteem, career difficulties, and coaching

Honestly, Andrew was a huge help in navigating so many aspects of my life. I was able to focus more on the positives in my life and building myself up instead of what I didn't have at that moment. He helped me gain an understanding that the things I blamed myself for and tore myself down over didn't make me a person of no value to my friends and family. I strongly recommend Andrew if you need someone who listens and has good insight, he's very pleasant and very easy to talk to as well.

Written by S.T. on Jan 11, 2022 after therapy with Andrew for 2 weeks on issues concerning stress, anxiety, relationship issues, family conflicts, and self esteem

I would not be able to put all the wonderful things I could say about Andrew in a “short” review. What I can say is he’s honest, kind, great listener, down to earth & knowledgeable. With our first conversation I was able to identify the things that needed to be worked on & actually had a break through with my family. I would recommend Andrew to any & everyone who is looking to seek help!

Written by C.H. on Dec 12, 2021 after therapy with Andrew for 2 months on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, addictions, relationship issues, trauma and abuse, intimacy-related issues, and self esteem

Andrew responds to your messages quickly and always checks in to see if you need anything. What stands out about him in the sessions is that he’s a really genuine person and he relates his personal experiences to your situation. I felt comfortable sharing my struggles with him and he focused on giving me strategies/tools to address those issues. He’s also very positive and encouraging. I couldn’t recommend Andrew more and I’m grateful for his help/guidance.

Written by G.E. on Nov 17, 2021 after therapy with Andrew for 8 months on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, relationship issues, family conflicts, trauma and abuse, eating disorders, sleeping disorders, self esteem, anger management, coping with life changes, and compassion fatigue

I love that Andrew is so available for his clients. My previous therapist wasn’t responsive and even missed one of our session, so being matched with Andrew had been a great experience. Andrew is very friendly and relatable, making me feel comfortable. He is also very assuring which I appreciate. I sincerely wish him all the best in his future endeavours.

Written by J.O. on Nov 16, 2021 after therapy with Andrew for 2 weeks on issues concerning depression, and family conflicts

Andrew imparts personal experiences which make me feel heard and understood.

Written by B.E. on Nov 10, 2021 after therapy with Andrew for 1 month on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, family conflicts, grief, anger management, and bipolar disorder

I was about to stop using betterhelp because my previous therapist wasn’t very helpful or responsive and my insurance doesn’t cover this type of therapy anyway. I decided to give the app another go and asked for another therapist and they matched me with Andrew. Andrew is the only reason I haven’t gone back to in-person sessions with my old therapist. Yes, it would be free to do so, but Andrew is By far the best therapist I have dealt with so far. He listens well and responds appropriately. He is also responsive to messages which I like.

Written by S.A. on Oct 12, 2021 after therapy with Andrew for 6 months on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, relationship issues, eating disorders, self esteem, anger management, career difficulties, and adhd

I have been very lucky to find Andrew.
At first I was very worried that a man might not understand some of the problems I am facing. I changed my mind soon. I came to therapy after having depression, relationship breakup, eating disorder, low self esteem, my anxiety levels were so high, and I started to be really worried. In a few months of work, I was able to manage my emotions, I had many ups and downs, which Andrew was able to manage with a lot of patience. He asked me often how I was feeling, through messages,checking every couple of days. He made me feel comfortable in the communication approach I preferred, messages, calls.
I have completely overcome the state of tension, depression and anxiety.
I'm defintely in a better place now.
Andrew showed me a way, a path I could follow, and is what I needed it.
I was so overwhelmed with everything in my life and I couldn't manage it anymore. Speaking with him was helpful despite cultural and language differences, I felt understood. After a few months I have had a marked improvement, then now I can ease my anxiety states. Andrew is a very good therapist, I would recommend him to anyone. he is empathic, professional and at the same time he make you feel like you are speaking with a friend.
I spoke with him about everything and he helped me in everything..work, relatioship, anxiety, depression...etc
I am still working with him but I feel a different person, there are still things that need time and work, but I am much more in controll of my life. My friends and family saw in me a big change with time. I worked a lot on my life balance and still I am doing, when something is not working I start to recognize where I do wrong and I try to go back on track by myself. He showed me the way and he defintely changed my life in something better. Thanks Andrew!!

Written by J.U. on Oct 09, 2021 after therapy with Andrew for 7 months on issues concerning stress, anxiety, lgbt, relationship issues, family conflicts, trauma and abuse, grief, sleeping disorders, self esteem, coping with life changes, compassion fatigue, and adhd

In my +/- 8 months working with Andrew, I have transformed into a much healthier version of me. With his guidance and support, I have been able to grow out of my limiting beliefs, trauma bonds, and challenging circumstances, into a life of alignment and positive mental health. This journey made me realize I could benefit from somatic therapy also and am continuing my healing journey that direction from here, but both have been equally important and life-changing. Thank you Andrew for your time and care. I will recommend you to anyone/everyone!

Andrew genuinely cares. He’s kind and always makes me feel comfortable to be totally open about anything. Not a hint of judgment and never comes across as pompous or arrogant which I’ve unfortunately come across in the past dealing with therapy.

Andrew has helped me to change my life and my mindset. His patience, kindness, and dedication to helping people is truly inspiring. He provides you with very helpful resources, is generous with his time, and he also checks in every few days which reinforces that he cares. I can tell that he is so passionate about what he does, and I can’t imagine a month going by without working with him. My life is so much better because I met him. It’s easy to talk with him about any issues and he always makes me feel comfortable when discussing deeper problems. I almost gave up on finding a counselor before I met him, and I’m so glad that I didn’t. Thank you Andrew!

Written by B.R. on Jan 03, 2021 after therapy with Andrew for 1 month on issues concerning stress, anxiety, and self esteem

Andrew's counseling style is the epitome of the personal touch! He is smart, professional, caring, and compassionate. He shares his professional knowledge in such a way that you feel like you are talking to a trusted friend which makes you feel comfortable talking about deeply personal subjects. When I was feeling very depressed, he was there with encouraging words to help me start to think more positively and he messages you every couple days, just to check in with you!! With his shared personal experiences, advice and goal setting techniques I feel like he went above and beyond for me EVERY session!

I cannot say enough good things about this counselor. I'm already making progress in just a few weeks. He's very encouraging and aware of my issues.

Written by T.R. on Dec 08, 2020 after therapy with Andrew for 3 months on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, addictions, anger management, and adhd

Andrew is an amazing person who is honest and caring about his patients. He was able to help me through some tough times in my life and keep me focused on making myself better. He was very easy to talk to which is hard for me to do. I felt extremely comfortable telling him what was going on in my life and he was able to find solutions to everything I was struggling with. He helped me establish a way to communicate how I'm feeling in a way that my wife could understand in a very short amount of time. He was always willing to work with my busy schedule to ensure that we had a meeting when I needed it the most. He always listened with open ears and NEVER made me feel like I was just another person he had to deal with, which was a tremendous help to my mental health. He was always quick to respond to my messages and would always check in with me if he didn't hear from me for a few days, and I must say that helped me out a lot! If you're considering using Andrew he comes very highly recommended by me and the countless others he has helped. I can not thank you enough, and I am so extremely grateful to have had your help through all of this. 10/10!

Written by E.V. on Nov 16, 2020 after therapy with Andrew for 2 months on issues concerning stress, anxiety, trauma and abuse, grief, and coping with life changes

I've been working with Andrew for just over 2 months now and it's been fantastic. I remember our first phone session - in the space of about 15 minutes, Andrew understood my situation better than anyone else has in the past year and a half. He put into words how I have been feeling better than I could have done myself. He hits the nail on the head consistently, and I haven't felt this understood or supported in a very long time. I'm a constant work in progress but I feel confident about the future knowing Andrew's got my back. I'd highly recommend him to anyone.

Andrew was everything that I need(ed). He was compassionate and very knowledgeable about my circumstances. He was 100% ok with scheduling sessions via text as I was feeling too overwhelmed to participate by phone/video. I hope to resubscribe soon, and if I do I will seek out Andrew.

Written by B.R. on Sep 22, 2020 after therapy with Andrew for 3 weeks on issues concerning stress, anxiety, addictions, relationship issues, intimacy-related issues, self esteem, and anger management

Andrew is a fantastic human being and professional. I've tried therapy a couple of times but was yet to click with someone to the point where I feel actually chill and relaxed about opening up. He's very understanding and open minded, and I'd recommend him to anyone looking for some excellent insights into how their mind works.

Written by S.T. on Sep 17, 2020 after therapy with Andrew for 2 weeks on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, family conflicts, trauma and abuse, sleeping disorders, self esteem, compassion fatigue, and adhd

I've had 2 sessions so far. They have been wonderful. He truly listens to me. I had counseling before and they didn't seem to really ask questions ask much. Because he's asked more I feel more confident we will be able to get to the root of things. So that we can improve things and learn to cope. He is definitely very caring and make me feel welcomed as well. Which has made opening up about some things so far a bit easier. When I message him he is prompt with that as well. I am looking forward to continuing to work with him.

Work with me!
