She is amazing, responds in a very nice manner, very fast. Listens and gives amazing feedback. I love a therapist that will listen and give you the most honest truth. And that’s exactly what she does…:)
I have had nothing but a positive experience. Provides me with a variety of worksheets to allow me to see that there are reasons for my depression. Explaining the reasons for the depression. The education that is provided with this process of revisiting traumatic experiences to help me with my depression. Providing a safe space to be open and honest about my past, and present. Helping me with my future, improving my outlook on becoming a better, happier person.
So far even tho.she has a very busy professional and family schedule she has been there for me and offered me insight and techniques to help me cope thru my issues. She is kind, patient and just a pleasure to talk to.
Charity is attentive even when I’m not. I appreciate her concern and diligence in helping me.
Great at what she does, makes me feel better about things
Charity has been a great therapist. She’s been a great support and source of knowledge. I feel I can fully trust her to guide me through overcoming the challenges I face because of mental illness.
One of the best in my thinking. She has helped me with a lot of things I was dealing with
Charity has been a very pleasant person with whom to work. She has given me a lot of tools, through the system, to utilize. She is very genuine and easy to talk to.
Looks for hard work and collaboration to move me forward.
Charity has the patients of a Saint. She doesn't tell you what she thinks you should do. She guides you into the answer you already had in your head. She is very good at what she does.
She does an amazing job of listening and helping me isolate issues. She is awesome!
So far she has been amazing. I haven’t gave her much to go on during our first few sessions and she has worked so well with me. She is easy to converse with and she explains why she says and does or what she thinks. Which is so reassuring on so many levels. She makes it easy when it’s the hardest thing I’ve ever tried in my life.
She is a great therapist. I feel heard and more importantly I feel like I’m moving forward with her help.
I’ve been through 3 or 4 other therapists with other companies just trying to be “heard” and Charity is the first one who cares about MY goals, not what someone else wants me to do. And she is relatable because she is a real person and shares certain things she has learned to deal with. The more I talk to her the more I want to schedule more time because she is the accountability person I’ve needed.
Still in the early stages of even seeking therapy but I’m glad that Charity is here to help me out through it!
Everything I was looking for! She connected with me deeper than I thought could be done over a video call.
She does a wonderful job at listening, and gives me useful/ healthy tips on how to communicate and stay positive. She is everything I looked for in a therapist.
Working with Charity had truly been an amazing experience. I have worked really hard on holding my self accountable within my journey and im extremely to have her as my therapist ☺️
Charity is exactly the person I need to help me become a fuller version of myself. She is sensitive but assertive, and will be as dedicated to helping you as you are to working on yourself. I will be eternally grateful that BetterHelp matched her expertise with my needs so accurately.
I am confident that these sessions with Charity a blessing to me and are helping me.
Charity Clavey is absolutely the Best therapist I’ve had. Not only that but she is direct and clear in her verbiage and is extremely professional. I will definitely be seeing her again
Charity has been great, she asks really good questions that help me to explore my issued deeper than I would otherwise. She is very responsive and provides helpful feedback.
She is amazing and listens so well
Very friendly and I feel comfortable so far, I like the whole system on here it’s very convenient as well
