These quotes represent just a few of the many positive reviews that we have received for Beverly Chevalier . 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.
Beverly understands my needs and helps me to work through childhood trauma and anxiety with the compassion and understanding of a highly skilled counsellor. She has provided many different techniques to deal with anxiety as well as breaking through the barrriers that inhibit a healthy and productive life.
This has been done via good interpersonal skills and gaining my trust most immediatley. She is flexible in her talent as a counsellor providing many different techniques to combat personal issues and anxiety. For the first time I feel hopeful and optimistic for the present and the future, this comes from Beverly
as she is culturally sensitive, and self-aware of the situation. Thank you.

I have been working with Bev for almost six months. In that time I have made real & tangible progress. She is kind, trustworthy, savvy, & extremely skilled at getting to the heart of my issues with insight, skill, & compassion.
I respect & love her for the speed with which she has helped me sort through & get to a resolution of some of my longstanding, emotional issues. Some of the things I have been working through include:
emotional abuse, alcohol abuse, avoidance, denial, & negative self-esteem.
Bev is equally comfortable exploring profound, spiritual, moments as she is offering concrete actions & habits to support the ways in which I manage my improving adjustment to life.
I would like to remake the world in the spirit of generous humanity that Bev brings to every session.
