My counselor has been very supportive and has given me recommendations that have helped me to move forward.
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.
Danielle is AMAZING! I appreciate her listening ear and expertise when it comes to my life! You are a miracle worker!
She knows just when to check in. She gives very good insight and ideas to help with any doubts. I enjoy our exchange andnit truly helps.
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!
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.
Danielle’s insight has been truly remarkable. She has amazing intuition and ability to pinpoint the issues that matter most. I’m very impressed by her and grateful for her generous effort with me.
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
Danielle is really friendly and down to earth. She listens carefully to my issues and her advice has helped me greatly. I feel like I am speaking with a friend who also just happens to have extensive knowledge of counseling.
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!
Danielle is a professional, I would recommend her to anyone who is seeking to change their life, and find new meaning to living a grand life. She provides tools to assist you in developing a better you.
Danielle has been great thus far! This has been my first counseling experience, and she is smart, kind, and sooo relatable!
I've been with Danielle about 2 weeks. She seems great so far. She has the right credentials, she answers quickly and she pays attention.
Danielle is great. I understand that she can’t respond right away but she listens to me and understands me. In the end, that’s all I’m really looking for. She is helpful.
In a short amount of time I had conversations with her, I can already tell she cares about her patients, and that she is approachable.
My time speaking with Danielle has been amazing. I've grown so much in almost a year of counseling. She's insightful, receptive and has a genuine concern and attentiveness to what we talk about.
Danielle is the best! She's compassionate, open-minded and patient, not to mention she possesses great experience in dealing with a variety of issues. She was the first therapist assigned to me through the app and I've never looked back.
She is a down to earth human being. You will not regret asking for her help.
Danielle pays attention to everything you are telling her and gives valuable insight. She helps me to see things clearly. I've had a better experience with her than therapists I have see in person.
Danielle is genuine, understanding, insightful, and affirming.
Danielle is lovely- great sense of humor and has really helped me and continues to help me.
Brilliant, helpful and insightful. Couldn't ask for a better counselor!
Danielle is really attentive and provides lengthy feedback with thought-provoking questions. She can relate, which makes me feel comfortable, as if I am talking to a friend.
Danielle is an excellent therapist. She helped me think through things differently and in a strategic way that have led to me having more open, accepting relationships with others and with myself!
Danielle Centofranchi is incredible. She has helped me more than she could ever know. I finally feel like I can breathe, and that I am a person of value, not just defined by medical or familial issues. I find her easy to talk to after the basics are covered, it's like talking to an old friend. No fear of judgement, just help and support. Thanks Danielle.
Danielle is patient, kind, open-minded and dependable. She has provided me with much-needed insight and support over these past few weeks. Very happy with my experience so far.
I have nothing but good things to say about Danielle. In the few weeks that we've been working together I feel better and more at ease about things. I would recommend her to anyone
Understanding, straight forward, patient, and very helpful.
So far she's been very kind and clear. I just started talking with her today so we'll how it goes! Any help is appreciated.
Danielle is helpful, informative and encouraging. I find her input helpful.
Danielle has been amazing working with me. She's attentive, asks great questions to get me thinking and raising my awareness. I definitely recommend her.
