Very passionate

I've just started my therapy journey and I couldn't be more pleased that Dr. Yanagisawa is my therapist. He is an excellent listener and immediately grasps what I'm trying to achieve by going to therapy. I'm excited to continue to listen to his advice and work on the homework he assigns me each week. I feel confident that with his support I'll overcome the obstacles that have been holding me back from reaching many of my goals in life.

Dr. Yanagisawa was really good. This was ,y first session and with little time I had to get him up to speed with me as best I could. He gave me some good insight about my divorce.

As a new person to BetterHelp, I had somewhat low expectations of the platform. Anton exceeded my expectations by miles. Regardless of my difficulty putting thoughts into words, he is always patient, kind, and understanding. After speaking with him I feel like I understand myself much better, and would really encourage anyone trying to face their own struggles to do the same.
