These quotes represent just a few of the many positive reviews that we have received for Bethany Kelley. 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.
Within the first session we she got so much out of me and also said some things that really helped with my situation.
Bethany is awesome!
Bethany has a great vibe and asks the right questions. I just wish I could do an in-person session with her.
She's great and understands my needs. I'm grateful for her help.
Bethany's gifts have been responsiveness, willingness to challenge and stretch me, and creating a safe spaces. She's been a lifeline in a long line of varied therapeutic experiences. I pray that she stays connected to BH. She's an asset and blessing.
Wonderful therapist who really listens to me
She’s very great, a great listener and provides well needed feedback
Excellent therapist. Although at times a bit difficult to schedule with, Bethany Kelley is an excellent person to speak to, with very grounded and well-rounded perspectives. Truly sincerely helpful, wise, and patient. Never condescending, nor "telling you what you want to hear".
I've been looking for a good therapist for YEARS and finally found exactly what I need in Bethany. She gives trauma informed responses that honor my faith. Super grateful to have found her.
Bethany Kelly is an amazing therapist who truly makes me feel listened to and understood. Every session I have with her, even if we're talking about something heavy, I feel relieved and cared for
If I ever feel like I run out of things to talk about she asks the right questions to keep the conversation going. I feel like she knows how to get to the root of the problem.
Bethany is a therapist that stood out during my journey with Btterhelp. She would listen carefully and ask the right questions without judgement. She is quite open and cultivates an easygoing environment to help you open up and talk about your issues. She has been very helpful and i highly recommend her.
Bethany is extremely kinda and makes an effort to connect with me. 5 stars.
I was really nervous about embarking on this journey. From our first conversation I immediately felt a ease with Bethany, I feel heard, understood and validated. I'm only 3 sessions in and I have a long road ahead of me, but I can, for the first time, see light at the end of the tunnel. I'm so grateful and look forward to our sessions. Thank you Bethany
Bethany is incredible, I feel heard when I'm speaking and never rushed to explain my feelings. I find that when I'm explaining how I'm feeling she is able to connect to me with personal experiences that make me feel more confident to confide in her. I'm very happy with everything I've experienced so far.
Very compassionate, easy to talk to, calm
I've only been with Bethany for a couple of weeks, but she has made me feel so comfortable and at ease in such a short time. She is kind, reassuring, empowering, and really hones in on the root of any difficulties you may be experiencing with honesty, sensitivity, and the utmost care. I couldn't recommend Bethany highly enough, and I'm so grateful for everything she is already helping me with - I'm very much looking forward to my therapy journey developing with her.
It’s only been 2 weeks , and I’m more than happy , I’m exited now when my therapy sessions are coming , it’s been the highlight of my year and I’m happy to do the work and mame my life better thanks to Bethany Kelley , thank you.
Bethany is very kind and I look forward to our therapy sessions. I wish I had found her years ago.
Bethany has helped me see different perspectives on things that I have beaten myself up on in the past. She helps me slow down and think. I value my time with Bethany because I value myself more.
Where do I even start? Bethany has been incredible from day one. She has made me cry the good kind of tears that bring so much healing and at the same time remind me to keep going. I don't have to explain a lot of things because she already understands my context and where I'm coming from. My only regret is not getting to call her my therapist sooner. I am thankful.
Honesty, integrity, indiviual attention are a few of the things that make Bethany an optimal choice for therapy. I have in therapy for most ofy life and only know do i feel confident in my progress and growtj because of Bethany!!!
