Angela gets me. That’s something I’ve never truly experienced in a therapist. It makes a world of difference. She’s incredibly skilled at recognizing, and helping me recognize, when I’ve caught myself in patterns of negative self-talk or black and white thinking. I’m grateful for Angela’s assistance.

I've been connected with my therapist Angela for a few months now, and I am always so happy and excited for our sessions. She's an amazing person and is so great and easy to talk to, I really appreciate that I've been able to connect with her through BetterHelp. Its a meaningful relationship that I would not have been able to access if I had opted for therapy in my local area.

Angela is great. When I first started I was in a very deep dark place and she helped me open up and see things in a different perspective as well as understand myself better. I’m grateful for the progress I’ve made because of her support and help. Highly recommend.

Angela was of valuable help to me. She is a great person before being a therapist.
Very human and insightful, she helped me reframe my thinking, provided me with the tools to navigate through my anxieties and I have made great progress socially thanks to her knowledge, style and communication.
I cannot thank her enough for supporting me with my grief. I felt safe with her at all times.
