These quotes represent just a few of the many positive reviews that we have received for Dr. Crystal Russell. 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.
Dr Russell is extremely helpful in making me feel comfortable. I am not used to talking about my feelings but she helps put me right at ease and she is very reassuring. I would recommend her to anyone!
I enjoy my sessions with Dr Russell. She makes me very comfortable. She listens to my concerns, and offers good advise and encourages me to step out my comfort zone to fix the issues. I don’t see therapy as such a negative unspoken about solution anymore since working with Dr Russell. She is very timely and relatable. I would recommend her to anyone needing help for sure. She responds promptly and always ends with a kind word… I am so happy she is paired up with me…ThankYou Dr Russell
Dr. Russell listens, cares and has solid insight. I am speaking with her about difficult things which is very hard and she makes me feel comfortable. Thank you Dr. Russell.
Dr Russell has been an amazing listener and also helps me navigate through life challenges with life tools and solutions.
Dr. Russell is so great! She is supportive and guides me to really work through my anxieties and stress. She is great at helping me identify triggers and she is an excellent listener.
Your site has been unusually buggy as of late my session was interrupted and froze while i was sharing something very sensitive and vulnerable. Not sure whats going on
Dr Russell is amazing and she has helped me so much. She is so kind, friendly and welcoming to begin with, I felt that I could talk to her about anything and I would not be judged or misunderstood. I didn't know where to begin but she helped me to unravel some of my issues and work through them in a healthy way. She has been awesome and I can't recommend her highly enough.
I am feeling better after sessions with Dr. Russel. I am able to process my childhood experiences and develop a more compassionate attitude towards myself and others. Having a trusting relationship that Dr. Russel and I have developed, I am freeing myself from internalised shame and judgement.
Doctor Crystal is very kind and caring with a no judgement approach, and makes me feel comfortable. I am happy after each session
She’s great. Very knowledgeable and understanding about a persons needs. Easy to talk to and provides thoughtful solutions to real world issues.
she is really good at what she does. She’s a great listener and provides sound advice/resources to use to overcome different situations
Dr. Russell is wonderful and willing to work with me and my schedule to make regular therapy possible where it otherwise wouldn't be or would be extremely inconvenient for me.
Dr. Russell is amazing at what she does. She understood exactly what was causing my stress in the first two sessions itself.
She is unflinchingly kind and understanding. Always ready with a sympathetic ear and a beautiful smile, she makes me feel better and lighter. I would definitely recommend her .
Dr. C is amazing! From the first session that we’ve had together, I felt comfortably with talking to her. She always seem to care about what is happening in my life and how I am feeling. I’ve always known that mental health was important and she makes each appointment purposeful. I am grateful that BetterHelp has her as a Doctor because she has truly made this experience great. Thank you so much for providing doctors that really understand what is needed and how to execute it professionally.
Dr Russell is very helpful & understanding. She patiently listens to you & really tries to help you along the way. She also shows care towards her clients

Dr. Russell is compassionate, easy to speak to and also a great listener. She is the type of therapist that I was in search of. Since speaking with her, I see a significant positive shift in various areas of my life and overall well being. I would highly recommend her to anyone.

Dr. Russell has been an amazing person in helping me during my difficult times. I am grateful for her insightful guidance. I really get to voice my issues and she listens with empathy.
I would recommend Dr. Russell to anyone. She is personable and kind. Without fail, she will ask a question or make a comment that gives me clarity. Sometimes I know what I'm thinking, but don't understand the implications of those thoughts and she really helps me with this.
Dr. Russell makes me feel super comfortable
Dr. Russell is lovely and helpful. I feel comfortable sharing with her and I feel confident she will give me good advice
She is so easy to talk to ! Very down to earth . I love her !
I just love Dr. Russell. She’s so open, understanding and caring. Every session with her is an absolute treat!
I've only had one session with Dr. Russell so far but she was very helpful and very understanding. I feel comfortable with her already and feeling comfortable is not something I easily do.
Where can I start with all the great things I learned with Dr.Russell. She helped me understand my past experience as a child, to help others understand things they were going thru. She helped me realize my issues within my marriage and gave me the tools to correct them. She gave me the tools I need to take the next step and that's couples therapy. If I find myself needing personal therapy I will definitely turn to her.
I have felt very comfortable with Dr.Russell, I feel like she understands what my issues are and is helping me work on them.
Dr. Russell is so easy to talk to and she genuinely cares. Talking to her is so easy and makes it easier to open up to her. I wish she lived in my city so I could jeep her as a counselor.
I've only met with Dr. Russell twice so far, and in those 2 initial sessions, I already felt comfortable, heard, and understood. She even gave me clarity on some thoughts and ideas that have been bothering me for so long. It gave me so much peace-of-mind already. I feel lucky to have found her on BetterHelp after searching for so long for the right therapist!
I love how attentive and non judgmental Dr. Russell is. I can sense her care and concern for whatever I bring to her. It makes me feel safe and valued. I mostly appreciate her kind words and respect for my voice and opinion. I’m soo glad we were paired.
