I am licensed in Iowa with 8 years of professional work experience as a therapist. In addition I worked for 40 years in an inpatient child psychiatry unit as a nurse and taught psychiatric nursing. I have experience in helping clients with stress and anxiety, family conflicts, trauma and abuse, & parenting issues. I work with my clients to create an open and safe environment where thoughts and feelings can be shared without fear of judgment.

These quotes represent just a few of the many positive reviews that we have received for Ann Ghabel. 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.
Ann and I have only had one session, however Ann has been right there reading my texts and been very patient at my slow typing. Iam looking forward to our next chat.
