I joined BetterHelp not knowing what to expect, particularly with regards to value for money. After just a few sessions, I think it's one of the best decisions I've made in recent times, and that's due in no small part to Danielle Centofranchi. She's extremely personable, friendly, and has a wealth of personal and professional experience with all sides of the spectrum when it comes to psychological difficulties and the events that create them. I'm feeling optimistic about the future for the first time in a long time, thanks to her.

I'm always happy to give Danielle positive feedback. I've been working with her for about a year now. I've accomplished so much with her in that time, largely in preparation for my marriage so that I could be the healthiest, happiest husband I can for my wife. I just finished writing to Danielle that my work with her fells like bricks laid in building a newer, better self, and having reached the milestone of marriage is the mortar cementing all my progress. I'm happy and eager to start laying the next row of bricks.

She is really great! She puts things into a different perspective but yet transparent! She listens and is you can tell she does care! She does more than she is required!

Written by J.O. on Sep 17, 2018 after counseling with Danielle for 10 months on issues concerning stress, anxiety, relationship, self esteem, and anger

How do I even start. When I first signed up for BetterHelp I was so nervous, I did not know what to expect and I was almost scared to share my thoughts and feelings as i'd not really experienced counseling before and had zero idea of what to expect. Let me tell you, Danielle very quickly diminished those thoughts and worries about online counselling. I was in such a terrible head-space at the time but she promptly responded to my emails in a compassionate but still professional way that truly made me feel at ease, she basically made me feel like I was having a conversation with one of my girlfriends, but with WAYYY better advice haha.
She has worked through a variety of issues with me so far and I have not thrown anything at her that she has not been able to tackle with me and help me understand I am not alone in this, or the only one, like I originally thought.

Danielle has helped me completely turn my life around and although i've a ways to go, I have strong confidence she'll be getting me through the rest of it. I highly recommend Danielle to anyone thinking of sourcing counselling with BetterHelp.

At first she was my life-line, turned out she was my life-saver :)

Danielle is such a kind understanding and empathetic counselor. She is very patient and I do not consider myself to be the most model client so that says a lot. She is very thoughtful in her responses and takes time and effort in giving you a lot to think about and consume. She is astute and very kind and a great person to talk to.

Written by A.L. on Jul 07, 2018 after counseling with Danielle for 2 years and 2 months on issues concerning stress, anxiety, family, parenting, self esteem, career, and depression

Danielle is an absolute gem! I was skeptical at first about using BetterHelp, but when I was paired with Danielle my worries vanished. Danielle not only has wonderful insight and expertise but a genuine approach that I can only describe as homey. Danielle provides a safe space while getting down to the nitty gritty of a problem. I find myself at ease whenever I send off a message because I know my conflicts are in good hands.

Thank you for everything, Danielle

Written by F.R. on May 22, 2018 after counseling with Danielle for 2 weeks on issues concerning relationship, parenting, and self esteem

Danielle provided me expert guidance on teenage parenting issues. I feel she really helped and reassured me during my daughter's whole first prom experience. Being able to communicate openly and honestly with Danielle really helped alleviate my anxiety, open up lines of communication within our family, and allowed us to really just be in the moment and enjoy this milestone in our daughter's life. Thank you, Danielle!
