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

Carla is absolutely fantastic. I feel an improvement in my well being knowing I have her to reach out to.

She is very professional and has made me look at things in ways that have been so useful. I have recommended two friends to better help after my experience.

Thank you Carla

Carla is a caring soul and does a great job both empathizing but helping her client understand limits, boundaries, and areas of growth in a gentle way. I'm grateful to have been working with her these past few months.

Work with me!
