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".

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.

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.

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.

Written on Oct 22, 2021 after therapy with Bethany for 4 weeks on issues concerning relationship issues, trauma and abuse, intimacy-related issues, and self esteem

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.
