I have been with April for a few weeks and she is amazing. Attentive, engaged, and empathetic. Would definitely recommend!
I’ve only had a few sessions with April, but she truly is a wonderful counselor. I had tried counseling previously but didn’t particularly mesh well with who I was seeing. April has shown me how counseling truly should work, and what it feels like when you find the right one. She listens non judgmentally, validates how I feel, sends me relevant resources, and is able to find patterns to my jumbled thinking that I’m not aware of. Could not recommend her enough.
April was a fantastic listener and advice giver. Equal parts kind, funny, and empathetic. If it wasn’t frowned upon, I’d be happy to have her as a friend!
I cannot say enough good things about April. I love her approach and how easy it is to talk to her. I work in a behavioral health hospital and because of my experience with April and Betterhelp, I have recommended this to other patients. I could not be happier with my therapist. Thank you, April.
April is an extremely understanding and competent counselor, she always makes time and always helps me when I need it. Highly recommended!
April is very thoughtful and her probing is very constructive. She offered a lot is time slots in her schedule, making it easier for me to make therapy fit into my schedule. I'm very glad to have been matched with April.
April has been really supportive and Professional and made me feel so Comfortable from the moment I spoke to her and at ease after 1 month of sessions with her I really found great peace ,understanding and solution to the issues I was dealing with really pleased with her very great and good person and Counselor
I have really enjoyed my sessions with April. She listens, and responds appropriately. She makes sure my concerns are addressed. She finds ways to help my outside of the sessions.
April is fantastic. For the first time I feel like someone is actually trying to understand what is at the root of all this, rather than walking in with a judgment and trying to walk me into it. I feel at ease, and she is always responsive - sometimes faster than I can be. I am VERY happy!
I’ve only interacted a few times, but, it has been amazing. I really appreciate her time and compassion.
