Beverly has helped me so much, she is kind, caring, and attentive to my specify areas that I struggle.
Beverly is sweet and caring but has a practical approach to someone's problems that makes everything seem more manageable. I'm extremely grateful that our paths have crossed!
I just started sessions up again with Beverly after a couple months hiatus and it felt seamless. We picked up right where we left off, she had kept great notes from the last time we spoke, and we were able to dive right in. I’m very appreciative of that!
I don't believe anything happens by accident and having been paired with Beverly Gostomski certainly was not. She is professional but yet has a very comfortable and has a comforting demeanor and way of communicating. She is an Amazing and patient listener, thank goodness for me! I believe that I will grow and profit from my sessions with Beverly now and also for any future counseling needs. I am thankful for her and highly recommend Beverly to anyone seeking counseling. S. Vanderberg
I love the BetterHelp app because it allowed me to put in the specifics of what I was looking for in a therapist as well as what I needed from my therapist. Beverly was the first profile I reviewed and it matched perfectly. She has helped me get through short term concerns as well as long-term problems even when I didn’t have counseling sessions because she gave me so much knowledge I was able to continue practicing the skills that she had taught me when I was not able to have sessions on a regular basis. I’m excited to begin regular sessions again and I’m happy that she is available for me.
Great upbeat and really in tune appreciated her help!
She is amazing! I have been seeking counseling with her throughout the whole pandemic/ quarantined time and this has been the best investment all year. I have never seemed out counseling before so Beverly being my first therapist has been AMAZING. She is such a wonderful listener, so professional yet makes me feel so comfortable. I would recommend her to anyone.

Two sessions in and I've made progress, identified weaknesses and began to implement suggestions and make make changes. Amazing insight.
She is an excellent counselor with a lot of expertise.
Although it’s still fresh and the beginning, Beverly is so receptive and hears me. She provides solid advice and genuinely cares about you and wants you to overcome your struggles.
I really appreciate Ms. Beverly and all that she is helping me with. I’ve had several counselors before and she truly has helped me the most. She is a wonderful listener and gives good sound advice along with helpful homework. I’m truly thankful for her guidance on my journey to better health.
I really like my counselor Ms. Beverly. She is a great listener and listens attentively what I am saying and then gives me very helpful suggestions. She also responds to my messages promptly and respects my feelings. I look forward talking to her and sharing my problems and I know she wont judge me wrongly. Thankyou for all the help. These sessions are helping me to regain my confidence and self esteem.
Beverly has helped me with taking a different perspective on my thought behaviors. She is a warm logical experience person. We are in the beginning stages and I look forward to practicing and the follow-up session.
