BetterHelp provides a simple, efficient platform that empowers counselors to provide services autonomously, based on their own professional judgement. That autonomy is backed up by responsive support from BetterHelp staff, and a robust community of counselors offering peer support and consultation.

My experience on the BetterHelp platform over the past 4 and 1/2 years has truly been life-changing. Not only have I been able to significantly enhance my own clinical skills, but I have been able to make a profound difference in the lives of thousands of people all around the world.

BetterHelp has provided me the opportunity to have no overhead working from home part-time while also having more time to spend with my family and children. It's also been a professional growth experience for me to offer counseling through this online format.
