It's only been 2 weeks and I feel like things have been good so far. I realize this is only part of my journey as I have to do the work myself in order to recover. David has been insightful in pointing things out and providing me with exercise for my healing.

David Gibbs is very encouraging and offers real, tangible ways to deal with what I’m going through. He always makes sure that I get to talk about what I need to without being pushy

David is very easy to talk to. I told him I need to be able to vent and want validation for my feelings and he really helped me through my anxiety for a situation. Now I’m already feeling relieved. Talking to him is just what i needed!

David has helped give me my life back in ways I never thought imaginable. Although this is just the beginning of my story, I know it’ll only get better from here as long as I keep putting in the work and believing in myself.

David Gibbs has helped me tackle some important issues I've been dealing with. He's direct in his suggestions and has offered support when needed. I also appreciate his positive outlook and professionalism.

David has been absolutely amazing in supporting me through my inner child work and shadow work so far. Even though we have really only just gotten started I already feel that he has helped me tremendously. He is very charismatic which I appreciate very much, and he is really helping to give me the confidence I was lacking to make these changes in my life. He reminds me every time we have a session that he is always available to me via chat message in between our sessions should I need him and ensures me he is always happy to hear from me. I think Better Help definitely did a great job matching him to me and I’m very glad they did. I look forward to our sessions each week and I love that he gives me “homework” or suggestions of things to look into and try before the next time we talk. He is very knowledgeable and uses fun and familiar examples as tools when talking about things. I can tell that he is very deeply passionate about his work and genuinely wants to see me succeed. I feel very comfortable working with him and I look forward to continuing my healing journey with him as my ally!
