These quotes represent just a few of the many positive reviews that we have received for Chrystal Cook. We don't pay anyone to provide their review and they are all made voluntarily. Some people's experience receiving therapy with BetterHelp might be different.

A positive mind creates a positive environment from what my mentors have reminded me from a young age. Chrystal is one of those individuals that responds and feedback me with the upmost lifting energy when I am throwing every curve ball at her. I am battling a lot of issues and she could narrow it out to center where I am struggling. I hope that behind all those positive energy, she is doing well and progressing in life with nothing but the sun shining at her path ahead for her and a smile to every stranger that she comes across!

Crystal is empathetic, down to earth, and really insightful—she has a way of listening to me ramble about all the stuff in my head and somehow pointing out the root of the matter in a way that helps me identify what’s really important and what my truest values are. Ten out of ten—I would highly recommend!

Chrystal is a wonderful person, and a caring therapist. She listens, and gives you “homework” to help you see how what she teaches you can be brought into your specific situation, and then you can implement it and see how it helps over time.
