Rev. Bogue has been so helpful. I want to thank her and all of the people at Better help. I feel a new sense of self, my confidence is coming back, my self esteem is building again and I have hope again for the first time in years. Rev. Bogue is wonderful, skilled and insightful.

As a young Hispanic millennial male, I had no idea how I was going to be able to connect with Rev. Bogue. But I was in for a surprise…she is an amazing human being that is down to earth, real, and very experienced in helping people of all ages and backgrounds. She is also highly experienced with helping people with addictions. She is someone that can be able to challenge, encourage, and be real and honest with me. I look forward to seeing how much more progress I make as she coaches me through my journey of life.

Rev. Bogue is friendly but realistic, and a good listener. She has a lot of relatable life experiences so can empathize with clients on many levels. I am not at all religious, so was initially leery that I was assigned a person with a religious title, but she does not put any religious spin on things when speaking with me and I’m totally comfortable. I recommend her to anyone who needs help navigating some of life’s challenging moments.

She’s been very supportive and addresses all my concerns and needs. Will take time but glad I found a supportive therapist to work with
