Christopher is incredibly patient. He can also be challenging, in a beneficial way. He has been a great help in getting past a break up, dealing with a dangerous work environment until I could go elsewhere, and in managing my general anxiety and depression.

I highly recommend Christopher Timmins. He is an excellent listener and because of that, offers counseling that is spot on to what my needs are. Thank you very much, BetterHelp, for matching me with him.
