Angie is exactly what I need, more than just kind words she offers tools and methods to help me cope with my issues and keeps me focused on myself. She responds immediately to all my journal entries and always has the right words. I don’t know what I would do without her. She’s made such an impact in my life and I couldn’t recommend her enough.

Prior to trying BetterHelp I had never done therapy or even considered it. Recently I found that I needed something, and so I tried BetterHelp. I was hesitant because of the money, and I was fully ready to cancel for any small reason.
Angie has been the best possible fit for me personally as a counselor. So much so that despite the cost I signed up for an additional 4 weeks, and hope to continue counseling even further with Angie. I could not ask for a better counselor for this time in my life.

Angie is very warm and great to talk to. The session is interactive and I felt she was not only listening but interjected to provide great insight. It's hard for me to easily open up but sure put me at ease immediately. I highly recommend Angie!

In the few short months I have been working with Angie so far, she has already changed my life so much. You can tell right away that she truly cares about her clients (and it’s amazing how much she remembers from session to session.) Angie has helped me immensely with my confidence, self-esteem, coping skills, and my overall outlook on life. She makes me smile on my worst days and encourages me to keep on going. I would recommend Angie to anyone and everyone. She is simply the best.

Finding someone who understands you, not judge you and supports you is not always easy. Clicking and relying on someone doesn’t come naturally to me but I am safe to say that Angie showed me that I can trust her. She is always there whenever I need her , with good advice and as a shoulder to lean on. I am safe to say I trust Angie and would recommend if you are looking for someone judgment free, with good spirit and always there to help.

Angie is a wonderful counselor. She has helped me work through some issues I’ve had and has given me multiple strategies to practice to reach my goals. She’s very kind and I feel very comfortable talking with her. Enjoy our sessions!
