These quotes represent just a few of the many positive reviews that we have received for Craig Hales. 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.
I love him.
Dr.Hales is a very genuine person, and takes time to hear and understand what I’m saying or trying to say, and he takes his time in giving me an answer or thought as well. Very empathetic person, and I thoroughly enjoy speaking with him and knowing that he can offer different perspectives, or gently guide me to understand why I may have been wrong or perceiving something incorrectly. I left BetterHelp for a short period and quickly came back because I wanted to continue working with Dr.Hales when some other issues came up unexpectedly. Very happy to have him!
I appreciate Craig’s ideas and tools to help me navigate my struggles.
This only my second appointment with Craig. However I feel at ease with him. He very professional, and kind, and he has exceptional listening skills.
Craig is an excellent Therapists and he cares for me.
Craig Hales has been very helpful to me. I would recommend him to anyone.
I would recommend Craig to anyone. For the last few months, he has provided me exceptional support as I navigated my way through anxiety.
Before our first conversation, I was nervous because I hadn't done much therapy and was afraid I wouldn't be able to articulate what I needed, but Craig made it surprisingly easy. He is patient and nonjudgmental, with a very quick response time.
If I rejoin Better Help in the future, I will without a doubt request Craig again as my counselor.
Craig was amazing! He helped me in a very traumatic, stressful time in my life. He was easy to get ahold of, he was compassionate, and very knowledgeable. I can’t thank him enough, and highly recommend him to everyone. Thank you Craig!
Craig does a great job of making you feel comfortable to open up and share the issues that are affecting your life. He listens and gives great feedback to help you move forward with issues.
Would recommend him to anyone. If I do come back I will request him as my counselor again.
Craig is understanding and knowledgeable about my issues and concerns and also shows caring when I express my difficulties. There’s a good balance between worksheets and correspondence and both have been integral in supporting my individual healing process.
I was skeptical at first because he was my first match and I thought I would have to look around more but after reading his profile I saw his views aligned with mine and after exchanging a few messages I became confident we are the right match. I am very happy with my experience so far and will probably continue because of how much he has helped me so far.
