These quotes represent just a few of the many positive reviews that we have received for Ruth Vivian. 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 like that she identifies core issues and suggests ways to correct as well as asking me ways to help cope. I like that she explains why I may act in certain ways based on my life experience but also explains how my actions may affect others. I feel comfortable talking to her and appreciate her insight.
