Reviews

These quotes represent just a few of the many positive reviews that we have received for Debra Hayton. 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.

Debra Hayton is focused and attentive to her client's concerns and needs.
I plan to continue using her services, as needed, in the coming months and years.
