Daniel is amazing. He ticks every box when it comes to what I look for in a counselor. Hes open and honest and guides me in a way that matches my personality. He will even check in on me on his own time. 10/10.

What an absolutely amazing first experience with Better Help. Daniel strikes the balance between active listening and thoughtful feedback that only a profesional of his experience could pull off. I feel lighter after our sessions and know I’ve found a therapist I can stick with.
