Deboraha Johnson is an active listener, and accurately reflects back to me all the details & nuances of the issues I have brought to her in therapy. Meanwhile, she helps me keep in focus the big picture of my goals for this stage of my life. Her observations and advice are well thought out, based on extensive experience with therapy and with life, and given to me in an objective and compassionate way.
Thank you Deboraha!
And, I have already recommended Better Help to several people
a) reasonable cost
b) very convenient - video or phone or text
c) ability to ask for another therapist if the chemistry or the match is not right for you
d) reminders to write in Journal--VERY helpful
e) reliable, timely service
Thanks for this!

I've had therapy in the past and whilst it wasn't bad, it was never as great as with Deboraha. She provided you with feedback, doesn't just ask you questions but has actual conversations with you that lead you to think and question your thoughts. She is an intelligent woman with lots of experience and in depth knowledge in the field of therapy. Anyone who gets to work with her should consider themselves lucky.

Deboraha is a great therapist and my first experience with her was so profound and relaxing. I enjoyed talking to her and her hearing out my concerns and troubles. I am looking forward to working with her more.

Deboraha was my first experience with a licensed therapist, and she made this experience very positive for me. I felt heard and respected, and it did not take me long to feel that I could trust her with my problems. The past three months she has helped me figure out my emotions, given me tips on how to improve my relationship from within myself, and been there to guide me along the path of finding more of my true self. I am grateful to have had her by my side.

Professional, easy to communicate with and keeps me on track. I always feel well listened to and that I am making progress.

Although I have only had two video sessions with Deboraha so far, I feel I have gotten so much more out of these two sessions with her than I have with any other therapist in my past. I feel comfortable sharing exactly how I am doing without sugar-coating and I feel very confident in the advice she is giving me. She responds to my messages very quickly and even sends me messages when she doesn't hear from me for a bit to check-in and to see how I am doing and remind me to write in my journal. She is patient, kind, excellent at listening to everything I have to say and then taking from it the deeper message/what I am really feeling. I am so glad I started Betterhelp and was matched with Deboraha.

Written by M.A. on Dec 22, 2021 after therapy with Deboraha for 2 months on issues concerning grief

Deboraha was my first therapist ever. She helped me a lot with dealing with my grief. She would nudge me in the right direction at the right time. She is a great listener and I felt very comfortable opening up to her from the get-go. It was a pleasure and most importantly the sessions with her helped put me in a much better place than where I was before.

Deboraha made me very comfortable to speak about my problems. She tailors her counselling to your needs and responds in a prompt manner. She gets to the underlying issue and acts as a guide to find your answers, this is great because it allows you to go at your own pace. She's helped me improve my relationships and mentality and I'm forever grateful for that.

I've loved working with Deboraha so far, she has been very understanding whilst also being able to give me different perspectives, which has really helped. She also introduced me to coping techniques that feel personal to me which I've incorporated in to my everyday life and I've already seen positive results. I'm so pleased to be working with her on this journey.
