Bethany is an excellent listener and knows how to hear the important details. She is someone you want on your team!

I have truly appreciated the help, and working with Bethany Maroney-Peterson. She is observant and understands my issues. I find it encouraging that Ms. Maroney-Peterson checks on me in-between sessions, or when she hasn't heard from me. Due to her concern, I would recommend her to anyone going through personal, and/or tragic issues.

Bethany is the best confidante, the easiest listener, the funniest when sarcasm is needed, and I genuinely look forward to therapy every week when not too long ago I was hesitant to start the process.

Bethany has been so great. She has helped me discover some really helpful tools that I can use in my daily life and is easy to open up to. It is clear how much expertise she has in her field, and there is never any judgement from her.

Bethany has been a huge help for me personally - I love that I know she's in my corner and that I can open up to her without judgement, I'm an extremely private person and I don't let many people into my life for fear of rejection, disrupting my happy world, etc. having someone validate what I'm feeling, telling me it's okay, pressing/nudging me to dig deeper as to what caused that, why I feel that - has really helped me unravel feelings. It's all baby steps, but after a few sessions - I could easily apply a lot of what we talked about into my everyday life.

experience. Bethany has made one of the biggest impacts of my life. I have never felt confident enough to even consider reaching out for help when I needed it. I decided to try BetterHelp and found Bethany's profile. She has made the most stressful and terrifying part of my emotional and mental health issues something that I feel proud of myself for having made so much progress. I intend to come back to BetterHelp for continued help in the future and truly only intend to do so if I am able to fit back into her schedule.
