Chester was great to work with. He was very communicative and very professional. I would definitely recommend him to other people!
Chester has been extremely helpful in supporting me through my job loss. I appreciated that he was able to relate to me with a similar experience and share that his journey to healing was just that--a journey. He made me feel less alone and for me to see that it's just a job and it doesn't define me. Thank you!
Chester has been a great help throughout the last 6ish months. Coming into therapy, I was very scared and at a vulnerable place but Chester created an environment in which I could express myself openly and his worksheets were really helpful in my healing process. I can confidently say that Chester has given me the tools and helped me build a foundation on which I can grow myself and better myself moving forward. Thank you
Chester is a great therapist. Definitely easy to talk too, does a great job of understanding what you are going through and how to improve incrementally. Chester also gives you work outside of your sessions that are tailored to your needs. Definitely excellent at what he does.
Chester made it super easy for me to feel comfortable. At first I was unsure about getting therapy, after our first session I realized Chester was the right therapist for me. He was friendly, understanding, patient, and he helped me learn valuable tools to help me feel better. I definitely recommend Chester as I am sure he is able to help anyone like he helped me.
Chester has such a kind and thoughtful approach to therapy. His help has guided me to better understand and manage myself. I never thought therapy could be this insightful and rewarding - it's truly made an impact in my everyday. You can tell that Chester genuinely cares and will do his best to support you and even challenge you when needed. You won't regret choosing Chester.
This was my first experience with therapy and Chester made it very comfortable and helpful for me. Highly recommend
Honestly, the only counselor that made me feel comfortable in my skin. He is friendly and caring, really shows that he cares about the people he is working with. Chester is the only counselor that actually made a huge difference in my life and helped me work out my issues. Definitely recommend!
Chester has been a saving grace in my life as soon as I started counseling with him and when I started BetterHelp.
He’s keen and kind, professional and candid, personable and credible. I would stick with Chester and recommend him, without any hesitation.
