Anna Sharpe is amazing. I think BetterHelp did a fantastic job matching me with her. She has an incredible amount of empathy for me as a nurse and a young woman. After working with her for four weeks, I feel that she is a great support person in my life. She has proven herself an astute therapist that has helped me identify some internal struggles that I wasn't even aware that I was going through. Anna is a great listener and her approach is gentle and open-minded -- basically everything I wanted from a therapist and more. I often find myself at the end of our sessions wishing for more time. Anna does a stellar job of "putting a pin in it" for the next video chat and offers lots of materials for me to stew over during the in-between. She's the reason I have recommended BetterHelp to many friends, colleagues, and family members. Thank you for the work you do, Anna.
