I respect Brooke so much, she cares about my wellbeing and works with me through my challenges. She adapts to the method that I choses to communicate with and encourages me to be comfortable sharing. I appreciate her so much.

I should have started these sessions a long time ago. Brooke is attentive, empathetic, and responsive. I have so much to unpack so I'm grateful I found her to help me along the way. So far I am happy with my decision to reach out for help. Many thanks to Brooke and betterhelp.com.

Brooke is a nice person and a professional counselor. I enjoy talking to her and she helps with multiple different issues. She is very open minded, which makes it very easy to talk to her about everything, even issues related to different cultures and traditions. Her engagement is great, listening and repeating what I said and asking the right questions every time. I’ve already recommended her to my friends, and will definitely do it again.
