Dr. Bachman has been a life saver. I made excuses not to do therapy most of my life and I am glad that when I finally gave in, I was able to connect with her. I hope I never loose her as she is an excellent listener and provides good perspective and point if view.

I really really like my therapist and I've referred friends to Better Help too. Not sure what I would have done without the assistance of my therapist. She has supported me through a lot of life changes. Thank you so much!
