Brooke is awesome
I am really liking counseling with Brooke. I’ve felt heard and validated while working with her. She has been very helpful to me and is very responsive.
I’ve never had good experiences with therapy from growing up being forced to go. Being an adult knowing I needed the help I’m so grateful to have found someone who’s changed my life tremendously without even knowing. I feel I can breathe easier now and I’m happy to have someone who helps in ways I didn’t know I needed. Thank you for being awesome and understanding ❤️
Brookek is reliable and responsible therapist
So far I am doing well and learning a lot.
Since started with my counselor it’s been good she showed different things wyd do deal with my stress and anxiety I’m very happy
She is a wellspring of knowledge. Super helpful with exercises. I feel way better about myself and how to communicate my feelings.
What a lovely human calmed my hectic soul ! My first time doing this and I will be back felt lovely having Brooke at end of the line and I miss it already ! , really lovely individual professional, soothing with words at a time when I had no one to listen brief pause but I’ve gained so much I want to continue with Brooke soon ! as i know they will continue to help me on my path Would highly recommend this wonderful human x moon x ♥️
Brooke is amazing, her advice is professional, yet is delivered in a friendly, down to earth, easy to understand and relatable way!!
Your taking the time with me is very important. It gives me some time to get my life in order for the first time in months.
Brooke is extremely professional and understanding. As this is my first experience with therapy I was very apprehensive about it all but I have been really taken care of. Brooke is able to identity your key issues and work in a very calm and clear manner with you to find the best outcome. I have really appreciate better help and Brooke is an excellent therapist!
Brooke has already helped me in such massive ways in a short amount of time. She’s kind, caring and always takes the time to make each message personal so it doesn’t just feel like standard messages. I would highly recommend Brooke to anyone looking for help. She’s changed my life for the better.
I am actually recommending this to a friend in need right now
Working with Brooke has helped me so much. She gives bomb advice and especially action steps to take, not just “think positive” or some quote like that. It all seems very personal and Brooke shared a few things about herself before starting counseling, which I just found so sweet and again, personal. I would recommend BetterHelp and Brooke to everyone who seeks to change their life for the better.
Very kind and thoughtful. Feel like we will get down to whats wrong with me.
Brooke is very intuitive, non judgmental & supportive. She always gives me practical advice and that is exactly what I need! She has, and is, helping me find my way and heal wounds - thank you Brooke! x
Brooke is unbelievable in her communication skills. She absolutely blows my mind with the amount she can offer to me. She’s a unicorn - just one of a kind.
I’m so glad that I started Better Help. Brooke has been wonderful in helping me with lifelong issues and day to day challenges. I’m very grateful!
Really great tips and exercises to help with different issues. Would highly recommend!!
She is a very lovely person, easy to talk to and very helpful. I would recommend her to anyone!
I have been working with Brooke good a couple of weeks now, and am so grateful. I love the fact that she checks in on me if she hasn’t heard from me in a couple of days. What a gift!
Brooke has been fantastic throughout the process so far. She's understanding of the things I struggle with and acknowledges that I'm a professional in the field myself and speaks to me as such. She's provided great guidance with self-care therapies throughout which has been a huge help, despite knowing what therapies can be adapted for my needs and implemented broke provides a directed approach that I struggle to implement with myself.
She is very attentive and listens to your problems and concerns. Very responsive person.
Brooke helped me work through a bunch of stuff that was weighing me down. She said things and suggested things that really help. Thanks Brooke
Brooke is very understanding and she always suggests ways and says things that makes me feel better.
Brooke is thoughtful, attentive and seeks to resolve, assist in my health decisions.
Brooke really helped me out when I was going through a rough patch. I would highly recommend her.
I would say so far I have been pleased with the flexibility she has provided in how we do our sessions. Taking different approaches when things don't seem to be helping me. Not giving up on me after I went a little crazy on her about how I felt a situation was. She is very understanding and relates with me on many things. I'm sure I will have more to say after this month is over!
She is great. Makes me feel welcomed and heard. I always felt weird talking about what goes through my mind but she is helping me open up and I appreciate that.
Brooke Bowen is very detailed in her comments. She is very qualified and super encouraging. I highly recommend her.
Brooke is very personable so I feel able to tell her everything, like a friend. She is very supportive and understanding and I feel that she won’t judge me and is there to really help me when I’m down. Thank you, Brooke!
I've barely started my counseling through this website. Even though it has been 3 weeks, it has helped out. I'm able to tell her things that my paranoid delusions aren't able to use against me. I guess it is because she is at a distance. Either which way, her tools of coping are massive and highly appreciated. Adding more tools to the chest.
Brooke is amazing, I adore her!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Brooke is great. She's very personable, which is a nice change from the therapists I've had in the past that I met face-to-face. I feel like I can truly talk to her about my concerns and worries and that she'll listen and respond without judgement.
She also does an amazing job of getting back to me at least once a day, sometimes two times. I LOVE the fact that I know I can send her a message first thing in the morning and that she'll have a response for me by the end of the day, sometimes sooner. She even checks on me after the weekends to see how they went and to see if any issues came up that I need to talk about.
I also love the fact that she seems to relate to the issues I'm having. It makes me feel normal, for once. Since she does such a great job of relating to me, she gives me great advice and tips for how to manage my stress levels and manage the various symptoms of my illnesses. I've already been having success by trying her suggestions, tips, and advice.
I would recommend that anyone who suffers from depression, anxiety, and/or borderline personality disorder should speak to Brooke, ESPECIALLY if they have impulse control issues like I do. She's truly the best therapist I've ever had, in all areas.
Very kind and nice!
Brooke has been so helpful and knowledgeable. It makes me feel in charge of my therapy to talk to her whenever I want and whenever I need. She listens and gives long thought our replies that make me feel taken care of and not on a check list. So thankful for her!
I would highly recommend Brooke. I have been working with her for a short time, but in that short time she has offered many helpful exercises catered to my needs. She is consistent and checks in with me very often. She is supportive and understanding of the issues that I am trying to overcome. I look forward to working with her more.
Brooke responds in a timely manner and gives me tools I can use not only for the current issue but with everyday life. She is very helpful. I am still fairly new but so far she’s been a great help.
I have recommend Better Help to other Veterans that can't make it to counseling and they are struggling in life. I wished there was a discount for military or a special rate seeing we are mostly on limited income if not rated total and permanent. I have been doing better as an Veteran with an MST and not wanting to carry the label PTSD..
I’m thankful for being able to express my concerns and feelings in a safe environment without being judged and getting support as well.
Brooke has been so extremely helpful. She is so insightful and her advice/tips have helped me through panic attacks, fatigue caused by depression, and PTSD. She has also greatly helped me with my low self esteem, which is something I’ve struggled with for 10+ years.
I have only been counselled by Brooke for a short time but she has been very helpful and supportive so far in helping me understand my issues and giving me practical ways to manage my anxiety symptoms and communicate better with those close to me.
Brooke was really nice and understanding of the things I go through, she quickly found the main aspects that I need to work on and sent me necessary resources. She is really helpful and kind and I definitely recommend her as a therapist. :)
Brooke has been supportive to me through some rough patches. She also helped me identify that I suffered trauma, grief and burnout and has helped me with a coping strategy. I would recommend her to anyone looking for a caring yet practical counselor.
Brook has been very caring and inviting. She encourages me to open up and makes sure that I feel comfortable.
She is attentive and willing to go the extra mile to help. I couldn't be happier with a therapist, and highly recommend her for anyone looking for care!
Brooke is amazing!! She listens and understands my point of view and gives me plenty of ideas and thoughts to think about.
I am very comfortable talking to Brooke. I find her reliable and she tries to understand what I need. I recommend her :-)
Brooke has been a great help.
I’ve not had very long working with Brooke, but from everything I have experienced so far she is exactly what I needed! She takes the time to listen to everything I tell her and thoughtfully responds. Even when my schedule is crazy and I sometimes forget to respond, she still checks up on me occasionally which I appreciate a lot. I feel like she truly cares about my mental health and helping me to a regain control of my thoughts and emotions to be able to experience happiness in my life again. I know it’s not gonna happen over night but Brooke has definitely given me tips and advice to start me on the right path.
Brooke is incredibly supportive and offers wise words during times when I need a non-anxious, differentiated presence in my life. She sees things in my life with a clarity that sometimes eludes me because of the skewed view I have of things due to the nature of my illness. She is consistent--she's there when she says she will be, and she's been a lifeline in times of deep darkness in my life. I am and will be forever grateful for having Brooke in my life.
She’s been a life saver!
So far so good. I have already recommended BetterHelp to my niece. I can’t control her decisions but at least she knows there’s always someone to talk to.
I love Brooke's tips. They're simple enough that I can apply it on my daily life. She listens to me enough, but always direct me to the important parts of my problems. What I like also is she didn't belittle my problem. I don't have an extremely devastating problem compared to others, I guess, I'm from a good supporting environment, but she addresses my problems accordingly. Thank you.
I am 51 years old and started therapy (off and on, more on than off) when I was 28 years old. I have never had a therapist give me REAL, USEFUL ways to deal with my issues before. It has always been, "And how does that make you feel?" or "Your feelings over the things that have happened are valid." Ok, that's great, they're valid...help me move on. No one has in the past. Ms. Bowen really has! She gives me tools and strategies that I can use to live with my issues, AND function, while validating my feelings. I went outside of my home, without anxiety and no terror feelings, for the first time this past weekend, in ten years.
Brooke was very genuine, seemed like she really cared and responded quickly.
Brook is very responsive and gives me options to think through my challenges.
I have just started working with Brooke, but I can already tell how knowledgeable she is! She really does have lots of tips, tricks, and ideas that really help me out! It is so nice to have someone who is always there for me when I’m going through a rough time!
Very knowledgeable in her craft and always stays in touch and double checks with you. Willing to adapt to accommodate any mental quirks I had too.
I love that I can express myself and have someone that understands.
Brooke was a wonderful counselor. her suggestions and methods were extremely helpful.
My counselor is Brooke Bowen - she has been very compassionate, non-judgmental, neutral, and helpful. She provides a lot of useful information regarding each concern or topic that we discuss. She checks in with me roughly twice per day, and I feel like she has my best interests at heart. I've connected better with her than with any other therapist I've had in my past.
Thank you and I’ll be back when life settles down.
Brooke has and continues to help me with many issues, she is kind, patient and fully understands. I'm a difficult case, but she took me on in her stride and went with it, I've felt really comfortable talking to Brooke and it feels like I'm talking and actually getting help from another human for once, she is simply amazing. I hope to continue being her client despite my struggles ongoing, it is a battle and I don't make it easy but Brooke has been there for me thus far!
Brooke has been great! She has given me the tools I need to feel better on the inside and is always there when I need her.
Brooke's really kind hearted and I enjoyed talking to her! She's super positive and really great.
Brooke has really helped me. She is thoughtful and understanding, and full of good ideas to help make progress in my counselling sessions.
Brooke is very patient, and kind.
Absolutely what I needed. Very clear instructions and friendly approach.
5 stars she's a sweetheart!
Considerate, helpful and accommodating of my schedule. Great experience and highly recommended.
Great listener and is always available to help
She is very helpful and honest in her answers to my questions on how to handle difficult situations. She makes you feel comfortable and like your feelings matter. I would absolutely recommend her!
Brooke has been in frequent contact, had an optimistic attitude, and took cues from what I shared with her to suggest a set of mental wellness practices that have had a rapid positive effect.
have only just began my counselling but yes so far so good!
Thank you for your assistance, Brooke!
