My therapy style is warm and interactive. I believe in treating everyone with respect, sensitivity, and compassion, My approach combines cognitive-behavioral, humanistic, psychodynamic and rational-emotive therapy. I will tailor our dialog and treatment plan to meet your unique and specific needs.
It takes courage to seek a more fulfilling and happier life and to take the first steps towards change. When you are ready to explore or take that step, I am here to support and empower you.

These quotes represent just a few of the many positive reviews that we have received for Darlene Narvae . We don't pay anyone to provide their review and they are all made voluntarily. Some people's experience receiving therapy with BetterHelp might be different.
Darlene is a heaven sent angel. She has turned my life around. She believes in me, encourages me, and genuinely cares about me. She does not judge, she adds different perspectives, shes understanding, she allows you to be yourself without any restrictions. She has always been there for me since i started Betterhelp. Honestly i do not know where i would be right now without her. Darlene, you have saved me and i am grateful to have you.

Darlene is empathetic, compassionate, and an amazing active listener. She gets through to the root of the issue and helps you understand things you may not have understood about yourself for years and years. Her style is warm and maternal. I trust her knowledge, and she is not only a skilled therapist but a wonderful human being. I am so glad to have been connected with Darlene.
