These quotes represent just a few of the many positive reviews that we have received for Beverly Gostomski. 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 has been very instrumental to my growth. She has been an incredible guide, helping me see things that I may have missed but also truly empowering me to locate things for myself. She has allowed me to see that I am not a victim of my mind and given resources to help. She has so much knowledge and I continue to learn more about myself daily through her guidance.
I am so glad Beverly is my therapist!!
Bev is by far the BEST therapist I have ever had the pleasure of working with. She has always accepted where I was in the process, and has had the right words at the right time consistently. Her gentle encouragement, and unyielding faith in me allowed me to move past self acceptance, to a place where I love, like, and RESPECT myself… I never thought I would get here, and stay here. Her knowledge and life experience allow her a depth of understanding and kindness like I have never seen before. We were able to work through things I had been stuck on for over a decade. With her help, I changed my whole life, and I’m back in school pursuing a career that I’m passionate about, I’m no longer reliant on anxiety medication, and am firmly on my “upward spiral”. The betterhelp platform has allowed me to stay on track, and not miss an appointment when life gets overwhelming. I can not say too many good things about Beverly, or about betterhelp!
She is so good at what she does. I feel so comfortable talking with her, I am thankful I decided to get help.
We have had a few sessions, I feel very supported and find the actionable applications of therapy very helpful.
In just my first visit with Beverly I feel better. I felt so supported and understood and I feel hopeful that she will be able to help me through my situation. I would highly recommend her as a therapist and would recommend Better Help.
Beverly is wonderful.
Beverly is an absolute pleasure to work with she has so many great options and solutions whether it just be something you need to work on personally or with in your relationship. I come out of every session learning something and having a new skill I can use to better myself and my relationship. She’s also very easy to talk to and never makes you feel uncomfortable about any topics. I couldn’t ask for a better counselor.
Beverly has been very helpful. She allows me to share what is happening for me, but also provides direct feedback (which I love) and provides great support.
She is amazing
Beverly is very relatable and professional, she makes me feel like I’m in a safe place and can speak what’s on my mind and really tries and helps you understand what you’re coming to her for.
She’s a great listener and offer reasonable and smart advice
Beverly is truly able to connect the dots between the many stories I share about myself. I appreciate how she works.
Beverly is amazing!
I have seen Beverly G. on and off again through the last year and she is absolutely amazing! She always makes me feel heard but also let’s me know I feel heard while giving me feedback but not in a negative way. Sometimes I don’t understand why I feel or do the things I do and she is always there to help and make me feel like I’m talking with a friend!
I’ve been working with Beverly for a little while now and she’s been helping me so much! She’s so nice and I feel very comfortable with her!
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.

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.
Wonderful as always
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.
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.
Very sweet and humble.
