Reviews

These quotes represent just a few of the many positive reviews that we have received for Cara Tuley. 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.

Long overdue, but I've been seeing Cara for more than a year now and she truly is my weekly lighthouse in a storm. I was in a very bad place when I started therapy but thanks to her guidance, I now have a lot more tools to cope, a lot more confidence/self worth and just much more knowledge of who I am and where I want to go.
Cara is compassionate, professional, and has helped me with everything I've thrown at her. She knows exactly when to keep the mood light/manageable, and when to delve into my past and my issues with sincerity, understanding and expertise.
Her memory and her note-taking are exceptional... she remembers everything so we converse with full eye contact, which means a lot to me.
Above all, I trust her with everything I am and everything that has happened to me. And that is not something I do lightly or often.
If you're lucky enough to work with Cara, you're in very, very safe and brilliant hands.

Thank you, Cara. You rock / you are my rock x

Cara has clear expertise and experience and really helped me make sense of life and look forward to rebuilding after major life changes. She gets a good read on situations and without being judgmental, offer insights into flawed thinking. Would definitely recommend to someone in a similar situation.

Cara has given me a lot of great advice. She always helps me see things from another perspective. Just after one session she has given me tools to help with communication and set boundaries. Highly recommend Cara

Cara is the best therapist I ever had, she gets me right away and knows how to read between the lines. She's very easy to talk with and open up to. I am super pleased I was paired up with her, and can not wait to see where this journey takes us :)
