Charisse Diaz is an excellent therapist and has helped me more in two weeks than the whole 4 years I had with previous therapy. I feel genuinely cared about and issues are being properly identified and diagnosed.

Charisse is so thoughtful and caring, to have such a heart for a complete stranger is a huge thing. Her heart and compassion comes through her emails and I've greatly enjoyed our time together! She is an amazing woman :-)

Charisse is very friendly and approachable. I can really feel and tell that she's doing her best to reach out and understand the situation. It's very enjoyable talking to her and she has helped me ease into therapy. Thank you Charisse!

Charisse is warm and kind and takes the time to really reflect on what you are going through to help support you in the best way possible. She is authentic and genuine and helps me to think through my choices and decisions without passing judgement.

Written by M.E on Dec 29, 2016 after counseling with Charisse for 2 weeks depression, stress, anxiety, trauma and abuse, grief, self esteem, and bipolar

Charisse has been nothing short of amazing for me. She replies by the next business day and actually listens to what I'm saying instead of just telling me what to do and how I feel.

It's been a very comforting journey thus far knowing that a lot of what I'm feeling isn't abnormal and I can definitely get better.

Written by A.N on Dec 27, 2016 after counseling with Charisse for 3 weeks depression, stress, anxiety, relationship, trauma and abuse, intimacy-related, self esteem, and career

Responsive, kind, and works with you easily!

Charisse has been nothing short of wonderful. I feel understood, like I have a safe environment to express myself in, and on the whole like she genuinely is as excited and motivated at the prospect of me becoming healthier, happier, better, as I am. It's nice to have real support in this journey.

Written by E.M on Sep 23, 2016 after counseling with Charisse for 1 week stress, anxiety, trauma and abuse, eating, and sleeping

I have been speaking with Charisse over the past couple of weeks and I have found her to be very helpful and insightful. Charisse has a very kind and gentle way of working, and I always feel as though she cares deeply. She always responds thoughtfully to my questions and concerns, without judgement, Charisse has a real gift for asking the right kinds of questions to enable me to reflect on my experiences and on myself. I have enjoyed and benefitted from her useful advice on my behaviours and the worksheets she has provided. I am very grateful to have been matched with Charisse. She has and continues to help me greatly. Thank you Charisse.

Charisse was truly amazing and helpful in her responses. She made a caring effort to understand my situation and provided comfort and advice/ tips that I very much appreciated. I'll definitely take her words forward with me. Thanks for everything!

Written by K.E on Aug 26, 2016 after counseling with Charisse for 3 weeks stress, anxiety, trauma and abuse, self esteem, and career

I love Charisse, she is very helpful. She is open and very understanding. I really like her step by step method, I feel like she is truly caring.

Written by D.A on Aug 12, 2016 after counseling with Charisse for 2 months stress, anxiety, addictions, lgbt, relationship, family, trauma and abuse, intimacy-related, self esteem, bipolar, and depression

Charisse is very helpful and very punctual with her responses. The thing about therapy is that you only het out of it what you put into it...like anything else...it takes work. When rating a counselor you have to keep that in mind.

That being said...5 stars!

Written by C.O on Aug 08, 2016 after counseling with Charisse for 1 week relationship, and intimacy-related

Charisse is incredible. She's a great listener, extremely supportive, and also makes me feel so much better talking with her. She often gives very specific advice that has been super useful, and turned out to be spot-on correct every time in terms of resolving problems that have come up in my marriage. Highly, highly recommended!

Written by H.A on Aug 05, 2016 after counseling with Charisse for 1 month depression, stress, anxiety, family, and self esteem

Charisse has really listened to what I've been telling her. She's asked the right questions to help and has never scolded me or told me an opinion or thought was wrong. She is also completely sympathetic without feeling sorry for me which can be annoying when trying to get help. I really appreciate her positive attitude and encouragement even in the worst of my story.

Written by N.O on Jul 17, 2016 after counseling with Charisse for 7 months stress, anxiety, relationship, family, intimacy-related, sleeping, and depression

Charisse provides very thoughtful responses and tries to relate to each client which is extremely comforting and helpful. Highly recommend Charisse!

I cannot put into words how glad I am that I found Charisse. She is very understanding of your issues and she will make sure that you are getting the counseling that you need. Also, she is always checking on you. If I could give 10 stars I would! Thanks!! You are the best!!

I have only chatted with Charisse once, but I am very impressed by her credentials. All of her specialties are my nightmares, my life. Crossing my fingers, as I have been to therapists for over 30 years.

Written by B.L on Apr 25, 2016 after counseling with Charisse for 2 days stress, anxiety, relationship, and depression

Charisse has been extremely helpful in guiding me out of my anxiety. I found her very easy to talk to and considerate of my feelings even if they didn't seem completely rational at times. I'm very glad I found someone to talk to when things were at their worst.

Written by J.E on Apr 07, 2016 after counseling with Charisse for 3 months stress, anxiety, trauma and abuse, and depression

Charisse is a very good counselor, who responds quickly and has a ton of coping resources to share. I enjoy working with her even though I have a therapist that I see in person also.

Written by T.T on Apr 06, 2016 after counseling with Charisse for 5 months addictions, relationship, grief, intimacy-related, parenting, and self esteem

Charisse is there when you need her! And she reminds you too which is good because at times one can forget! She's a great coach and mentor and helps to open doors to ideas/thoughts that one may not recognize.

Charisse has impacted my life in such a great way. She is a great person and truly cares. I discovered BetterHelp quite a while ago and she has done nothing but help me. I have noticed that she puts a lot of thought into the counseling that she provides. She makes the world a better place and I wish everyone could have a "Charisse" in their life!

Written by H.A on Feb 23, 2016 after counseling with Charisse for 4 months relationship, family, and intimacy-related

I moved to Japan recently for work and Laurie has been a big help getting through the adjustment period. I was having major anxiety issues before coming here and she has been VERY supportive and positive. If I don't talk to her for a couple days she will check up on me and ask how I'm doing.

Written by K.R on Feb 15, 2016 after counseling with Charisse for 3 weeks stress, anxiety, self esteem, and depression

Charisse is knowledge, compassionate, and kind. I greatly enjoyed our messages back and forth, and would recommend her as a therapist!

Written by A.R on Dec 05, 2015 after counseling with Charisse for 5 days relationship, family, intimacy-related, self esteem, and anger

Charisse is wonderful! She's just one of the best human beings I have ever had the pleasure of interacting with. I see her as a friendly and wise Jedi master who makes me think, gives me comfort and peace. I feel like I want to pour my heart out to her, and I almost always do. She reads every single thing I write - patiently and gently. I cried tears of joy today after only one week of talking to her, and there's still so much more to look forward to. I kid you not. I literally cried with comfort and happiness for two whole hours.
