These quotes represent just a few of the many positive reviews that we have received for Benjamin Hensley. 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.
He is a good listener and respectful and kind and he asks deep questions that make me think.

Benjamin is a real, authentic, human being who knows what it is like to live a real life with challenges. If you want someone who will be honest with you about his opinion, I highly recommend him!

I have personally always shied away from therapy, but do to the terrible physical pain I have delt with the last 11 months with tons of test and scans with no answers I thought I'd give it another try. I have been pleasantly surprised with the progress in just 2 sessions with Benjamin. I believe that his background in dealing with very similar circumstances in his own life along with the ability to adapt and build repore with whoever he is dealing with has created a situation in which I feel comfortable to share and shoot the breeze as if we are two old friends drinking a beer on a back patio of a bar having a heart to heart. I would totally recommend this process to anyone and Benjamin is the best. Thanks buddy.

Ben brought me much needed clarification and confirmation.
In short, everything I asked for.
I wholeheartedly thank him and appreciate all he has done for me.
He couldn't have done a better job for me than what he did.
I got all I ask for, needed, and more...
