Reviews

These quotes represent just a few of the many positive reviews that we have received for Ashley Smith. 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.

Ashley has truly helped me accept parts of myself without judgment or shame. She is respectful, on time, communicative, compassionate, creative in finding strategies that work with me, and I appreciate the effort she puts in. I know I am in good hands.

Written on Jan 02, 2024 after therapy with Ashley for 1 year and 1 month on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, lgbt, relationship issues, trauma and abuse, intimacy-related issues, eating disorders, self esteem, career difficulties, coping with life changes, coaching, and compassion fatigue

From the very beginning, Ashley created a safe and nonjudgmental environment that allowed me to open up and discuss my concerns freely. Her active listening skills and empathetic nature made me feel heard and understood. Her ability to ask thoughtful and insightful questions helped me gain new perspectives and develop a deeper understanding of myself.

Her expertise and knowledge in various therapeutic modalities greatly benefited me throughout our sessions. Her ability to tailor the therapy approach to my specific needs and goals was evident, and I appreciate the personalized care and attention I received. She consistently provided valuable tools, techniques, and strategies that helped me navigate through challenging situations and overcome obstacles.

Moreover, Ashley’s genuine care and dedication to my progress were evident in every session. I always felt supported and encouraged, even in moments of doubt or difficulty. Her unwavering belief in my potential for growth and positive change served as a constant source of motivation.

I would highly recommend Adhley as a therapist to anyone seeking professional mental health services. Her expertise, empathy, and commitment to your clients' well-being make you an outstanding therapist. I am confident that anyone under her care will experience the same level of exceptional service that I have received.
