My experience with BetterHelp has been more than amazing. My therapist Cynthia Martinez is Beyond the best thing that could have happened to me this past year not only is she a good listener, she has the best advice at every moment that I have spoken with her . I was recommended by a family member and didn’t wanna just talk to a random therapist, but I was definitely proven wrong. Thank you to BetterHelp and thank you to the most amazing therapist that I could have asked for.
