Bettye is very understanding and easy to talk to. She makes me feel very encouraged and supported when talking through various concerns and issues and I never feel judged or dismissed, no matter what feelings I express or am trying to work through.

Bettye is wonderful. I appreciate her kindness, comfort, expertise and approachability. I feel I can trust her and want to tell her more about myself because I know we will have a valuable conversation around it. Very thankful to have been paired with Bettye and I highly recommend her to anyone!!

I love speaking with Bettye, she's helped me see different angles on my issues, making them more manageable. She's helped me see problems, set goals, and then reach those same goals. With the help of Bettye I'm ending this year in a much better mental state than starting and actually look forward to 2021 :)

I came to BetterHelp because I was in a constant state of anguish at my job. Everyday was torture for me and I could no longer burden my friends and family by constantly talking about my situation at work. I cannot properly express in words how much having Bettye as my counselor has helped me. She is always my champion, and knows exactly how to pull me up when I just want to stay down in the muck of my own insecurity or sadness. She lets me take the lead in our conversations, but never forgets details from previous sessions that I might be too distracted to bring up. Her human and individualistic approach to her clients is sincere and I promise will bring something to your life you never knew was missing.

Bettye is warm and patient yet completely professional all at the same time. She understands and listens to me when I’m feeling down and somehow manages to make me feel stronger and even laugh. I am so grateful to have found Bettye as my counselor with BetterHelp.
