Written on Dec 27, 2023 after therapy with Carolina for 3 weeks on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, relationship issues, trauma and abuse, grief, sleeping disorders, self esteem, anger management, and coping with life changes

Thanks for the support over adjusting to my life changes and transitions. While some of these changes are slow, I am able to have consistency week to week with my BetterHelp therapist Carolina. The therapist is always attentive and communicative, suggesting relevant follow ups but not too much to overwhelm me in the process.
