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

Since I’ve started therapy, my therapist really has been the person that I can talk to. Glad I have a therapist like Deidra to help me understand what’s causing my issues and what causes my frustrations.
