I am a licensed clinical social work with over 10 years of experience working with children, adolescents, adults, families, and couples with a wide range of mental health related issues. I have been through life experiences myself that I feel help me relate well to my clients needs.
I work from a humanistic and cognitive behavioral approach and I am warm and sensitive to the needs of my clients and treat everyone as the most important client I have. I have been quite successful over the years in helping my clients meet their therapeutic goals and live a better life after their treatment with me is finished.
I understand it can be difficult to seek help initially but I also know how rewarding and beneficial it can be once the process begins and you see the changes in your life taking place
I am here and ready to help you take that step forward

Craig has helped me through an extremely tough time, a time where I felt my anxieties and doubts were truly getting the best of me, to a point where I feel comfortable in my own skin again. He did this by directly addressing what I felt was wrong, and helped me understand what I needed to do to get past my issues. I couldn't have asked for better help.
Very patient and kind. Responds quickly. Never judges what you have to say.
For my first counseling session with him went well, talked about what’s going on and what was on my mind. Started and ended it on a timely matter. He was very understanding and insightful the entire time. Highly recommend anyone to book a counseling session with him!
He is super helpful and amazing. He also checks in on me when I don’t communicate for a few days. He is very respectable and professional
Mr. Halpern is tremendous help and checks in regularly to ensure things are going well or to see how else he can help improve the quality of my life. I definitely recommend him to those who are seeking help.
Mr. Halpern has been a great help for someone like me. He makes you feel comfortable and open.
I’ve found Craig to be great. Extremely responsive and thoughtful.
Craig helped me through one of my hardest periods in life. I totally recommend him!
Just started with Craig and he is great so far! I have not used video chat yet or anything but I’m so grateful to have someone that is willing to treat me and talk with me and just listen. Thank you Craig!!
Craig is nice, very respectful and very to the point. He asks a lot of questions and slowly gives out advice. At first it might not seem like much however after a while one of the pieces of advice I received really hit home for me. So far only texts, I'm not sure if voice calls or video chat are necessary or if he prefers text. I'm fine with text but I'm not entirely sure if he would or would do a different type of media.
Craig was a tremendous help during my problems with my wife and separation. I was skeptical of online therapy, at first, but he made a believer out of me.
Craig is a wonderful therapist. He listens, has an understanding of where I am and provides a framework in sessions that demonstrates his professional expertise. I am truly blessed to have him as a therapist.
He is kind and listens and responds in a timely manner and offers good insight
He is a great help in getting to the root of whatever issue that may be affecting me. His efforts has helped me gain new perspective in my situations and I can't be more grateful.
Craig is a very patient man. He listens and guides in a way that makes you feel safe. He is understanding and looks at things in a very positive light I really enjoy all the help he has given.
Great experience. I am very grateful to have Craig as my counselor.
Craig Halpern is professional great human being of integrity, I would definitely recommend him to anybody. BetterHelp is being a productive experience, I'm grateful for working together, thanks again Dr Halpern!
Craig has helped me more in the past few months than any counseling I have had. Unfortunately I have had many occasions to seek help. Domestic violence, incest, rape, etc. Yes, I am very lucky to be alive & luckier that I want to live & continue to strive. Craig has pulled a lifetime of horror out into the open. I have never shared these things with anyone ever. He has helped me process so much & reminds me to take care of me. He’s always there & can sense when I need extra encouragement. He listens & doesn’t judge. I feel bad sometimes dumping so much stuff on him but he’s always patient & understanding & encourages me to get it out. I must say I feel cleaner & happier. Thanks Craig :)
I am satisfied with the ease and convenience of this site. Craig Halpern is simple to communicate, he keeps things focused and is responsive to my needs. He provides clarity and support with issues that are stressful and overwhelming to me. He is a professional that helps in simple, direct and kind ways.
I found Craig attentive and generally sensitive to my issues. I would recommend him.
Mr. Halpern is amazing. He has a very calm and intelligent way of getting me to think of things from different perspective, or in a different pattern that I never considered before. He's super nice and is brilliant, and I would HIGHLY recommend him!
Craig is always there when I need help, when I feel like there’s no one I can talk to. His advice is always sound and I always feel like he wants the best for me. Couldn’t ask for better help (see what I did there).
Craig is analytical, attentive, and approachable. He responds quickly and works around my busy schedule.
I really appreciate Craig being so non-judgemental, understanding, and empathetic. He always replies in a timely fashion and checks back on me. He asks open-ended questions to help me explore my thinking and provides helpful advice. It is very reassuring to know that I can have someone like Craig to talk to when I need support.
Craig gave me strategies to help me out and I appreciate his help.
Craig has helped a lot. He is to the point and a great listener. He always checks back and has been very helpful.
Always gives sound advice in a timely manner
Craig is a good collaborative problem solver and is good at making you quickly feel very comfortable talking to him.
Craig always checks in on me if he hasn't heard from me in a few days. It's so nice to know that I have someone safe to talk to.
I haven't gone to therapy before and didn't know what to expect. Craig makes you feel like there is always someone to reach out to. He gets back to you and encourages you. I appreciate the feedback on my reactions to decisions.
I really was a bit skeptical to sign up with "online" counseling. However, it seems to work great with the ability to schedule around my busy life of kids and work. That was part of the problem with attending counseling before was the drive there and back to a counselor's office and then an hour appt.,.... so it ended up taking up 3 hrs a day. Now I'm able to drop kids off to school and from the comfort of my home have a counseling session even as early as 7:30 a.m. Also, I was able to request a male counselor which I thought was helpful to give better insight into understahding my husband. I really like my counselor and thrilled with the entire process. I would recommend this to anyone that seems to have a busy schedule but, really would benefit from regular counseling sessions. Craig has already helped and has wonderful recommendations.
Very understanding when trying to explain things over chat. Always flexible when you want to chat and has already helped me in a short period of time. Highly highly highly recommend.
