He is a very good listener. He helps you work through issues as best as he can and always send any additional info such as worksheets etc. If he can this is the best about myself I have felt in a long time and I’m grateful for him.

Danny has been so available and patient. He has been responsive via every form of communication through BetterHelp. In such a short time he has given me the reinforcement of how much I matter and that I’m worth the effort.

Danny is a really kind, understanding and insightful person. I was struggling with a variety of issues and the way he helped me navigate through them really made a difference.

Danny Drew helped me to make sense of my life and my experiences. He helped me work through painful and fearful memories and make meaning from them. He was always very respectful and he encouraged me to think and reflect in ways that i couldnt do with friends and family because oftentimes it was with those people that we had such memories. Thats my perspective. One thing i learned from Danny is to relax and enjoy life. He taught me that those who quickly jump, quickly fall. I'm in this for the long haul and he really gave me the confidence to face the difficulties of life and still have a good time, making good decisions. I've gotten to know myself in a way i didn't think was possible and the least i can say to him is "I appreciate you man."

In a short time, Danny understand my point of view and gets what I am trying to achieve in the conversations.

Written by B.E. on Oct 30, 2019 after counseling with Danny for 2 weeks on issues concerning stress, anxiety, addictions, relationship issues, family conflicts, intimacy-related issues, self esteem, anger management, and adhd

He's older and wise, been in a long-term marriage, understands and thereby empathizes with me better than some younger person fresh out of psych school. Great match up - has given me an enthusiasm for therapy and belief that it might just be helpful to me when I have been at best skeptical about it before.

Written by D.E. on Oct 08, 2019 after counseling with Danny for 2 weeks on issues concerning depression, addictions, grief, and bipolar disorder

Danny is an excellent, empathetic listener. He is helping me form a positive perspective on bettering myself while encouraging me to be kind to myself. He really connects with what I’m trying to convey even if I don’t know exactly how to phrase my points and always provides helpful feedback and advice. Overall, I would recommend BetterHelp and Danny Drew to any of my friends or colleagues. 10/10

Danny has been such a big support! Talking to him feels like I am being listened to. He remembers the things I tell him, he reminds me of things I left behind, and he says things that help me make a decision. I keep a notepad next to me during every session because I like to take notes of things Danny says. I was in need of counseling for a while and I am glad I started when I did. Danny got to know me and learned about my situation before a lot more happened and when I had his help through the hardest times it made it all clearer. Getting back on my feet feels easier and I get more and more confident in the steps that I take. Thanks to Danny Drew and BetterHelp. It's great to have you!

Written by N.A. on Aug 21, 2019 after counseling with Danny for 1 month on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, family conflicts, trauma and abuse, grief, intimacy-related issues, self esteem, anger management, career difficulties, and coaching

I had some trauma when I was younger that was severely affecting my life and my relationships in a negative way. I also didn't have even the kind of money to afford this service for a long period of time. But Danny took the time and discussed treatment options for PTSD that I did not know much about before. I had tried different forms of therapy with limited success, but being able to write out my feelings, thoughts, and experiences allowed me to express myself in a way that I would not feel comfortable doing while sitting one on one with someone in the same room with me. Maybe that's a sign of me being on the older side of the texting/dm/instant message generation, but the messenger discussion was a game changer for me. Danny and BetterHelp helped me so much in a short amount of time, and they didn't dismiss me or treat me as less important just because of my adverse financial situation. Because of Danny, I found a local EMDR therapist that I can see, and it has been so helpful. Thank you so much.

I found Danny Drew to be friendly and caring. He seemed to show genuine interest in my problems and was keen to do what ever he could to help. I felt he understood me well. He gave encouragement and when needed drew me back to the question he had asked when I was going off at a tangent. I have every faith in his service. I would not hesitate to recommend Danny to anyone else.
