Excellent. Kind, caring and honest.
I was skeptical but have been very pleasantly surprised with how much I have learned. I love my counselor and definitely recommend her!
A year ago I was experiencing difficulties in my relationship, which highly affected my psychological state and interfered with my work. At one point, I decided to try Betterhelp.com. My counselor Dr. Brewer helped me to see some things I couldn't on my own and encouraged me to prioritize myself. It was a huge help for me at that point, which led to the decisions I am happy about.
This choice that I made to reach out and get 'BetterHelp,' better than just a friend, or colleague, or family member, has been truly life changing for me. It's due in large to this service, which is incredibly affordable might I add! But also due in large to my wonderful counselor, Dr. Brewer! She has 100% given me such amazing life advice and has seen things in ways I couldn't have imagined. I'd say if you're on the fence about signing up, like I was at first, DO IT! It's so worth it and will definitely change your life if you put in the work and effort and have an open mind to try something a little unconventional.
Dr. Brewer just gets it! She is very honest and respectful of my concerns.
My favorite thing about this process is that it is at my own pace. I feel as though I have a personal guide to the healthier perspective that's just walking along my journey with me. I'm finally feeling like I'm not drowning and maybe I won't drown. I'm grateful for this platform and Dr. Brewer.
I was very hesitant to therapy online, but upon meeting Dr. April Brewer, I was very warmly welcomed and felt comfortable speaking my mind. She’s very friendly and fun to talk to! As a young adult, having a counselor that is open and easy-going is important to me. Talking to her doesn’t feel awkward. I look forward to scheduling sessions knowing she is very knowledgeable and is skilled in her practice. 10/10 overall experience with Dr. Brewer!
I really am happy I have Dr. Brewer to help talk and work through my concerns. She has been so helpful!
Dr Brewer gets all levels of my issues. Look forward to time with her.
Dr. Brewer is great. She is always there to provide support and help you manage your goals and make them realistic and obtainable. I highly recommend Dr. Brewer to anyone looking for someone who can truly help and make your voice feel heard.
Dr. Brewer is awesome. She makes a person comfortable because it os tough for me to open up to a total stranger. Appreciate her suggestions, recommendations, and value her opinions.
I asked that I be matched up with a Christian counselor and thankfully she was given me to me, though I was initially skeptical of paying BetterHelp, quitting counseling was not an option until I spoke with her again because our first online video session was interrupted by a glitch in the network but she had made a good first impression for me to come back a second time plus not only was I satisfied after I read Dr. Brewer’s info but talking with her proved she was honest and I felt like I had found someone I could really talk to. Dr. Brewer has been very observant, found out ways that work well to help me gain clarity. I am positive that she cares because she keeps the lines open for chitchats after our once a week one hour phone or video session(s). She has been a blessing and throughout our time together for about a month it has become obvious that I have gained clarity and insight that I needed to move forward in my life.
After my first match up with a counselor didn’t work out, I was becoming skeptical of BetterHelp. The second time, I was given a selection of counselors and the moment I read Dr. Brewer’s info, I immediately felt like I had found someone I could really talk to. Dr. Brewer has been very responsive, found out ways that work well to help me work through my issues. I can tell that she actually reads my messages and her responses never feel rushed or copy-pasted. Dr. Brewer has made BetterHelp worth it to me and her work has already started to have a positive impact on my life.
I think she is awesome and very in tune with my issues and very helpful in all areas that I am struggling in. She is pretty much accessible anytime I need her and I feel that all sessions go well and I always have a fresh outlook on life. Dr. Brewer makes me feel like my goals are reachable and ensures me not to give up because I can accomplish them.
Dr. B seems completely in tune with my issues. When I don’t respond for a few days, she contacts me again with well wishes. Her response and support have been paramount in my last 6 months of development. I have already referred 2 friends to BetterHelp. They now use it regularly.
Dr. Brewer is a lot more insightful the most other counselors I've seen. She's the only counselor that has given me the sense of doing some real psych magic and head shrinking. All other counselors I've been to always just kind of asked what I wanted to talk about without setting agendas or given the impression that any work was done. Dr. Brewer does great work!
Great dialogue and conversation I have with Dr Brewer. She is very thorough and intuitive into my situation. There is a lot we often discuss and seems to not ever be enough time. We are so engrossed in the conversation time comes quick. Enjoy speaking with her!!!
Dr. Brewer has helped me exponentially with intimacy issues in my marriage without making me feel uncomfortable in any way. I can be fully open with her and she handles each question with grace and understanding. I am incredibly grateful for the strides she has helped me make in my marriage. I would highly recommend her!
Dr. Brewer did an excellent job of helping me achieve a short-term goal and setting me on the path to long term success. She's easy to talk to, an excellent listener, and has great advice on how to take on the tasks ahead of us. I highly recommend her!
Dr. Brewer is amazing, she has taught me some different strategies and has helped realized more about myself. She has taught me a lot.
Thank you Doctor Brewer, you have been so kind listening to my issues and problems as well as giving me great advice. Thank you for checking up on me. I am very grateful for the time you have taken to help me.
Doctor Brewer has been very helpful. She is familiar with my areas of difficulty and offers useful advice as well as resources for me to explore. She is very flexible and accommodating. She is a great listener and acknowledges my feelings. I always feel better after discussing things with her. I would definitely recommend her as a counselor.
Dr. Brewer has been great. Aways there to lend advice and try to keep me level headed when i am down. Its nice to have someone to talk to when you have depression and its made easier when they don't judge you for the things you are going through. My utmost gratitude towards Dr. Brewer.
