DeJonae is supportive and encouraging. She is willing to listen and discern what is really going on. I feel heard when speaking to her.

DeJonae is absolutely easy to talk to! At the first session, I found myself easily talking without the fear of being judged or misunderstood. The therapy has helped me focus on making myself a better person in order to be able to cope with all the negatives surrounding my life. Overcoming these situations has been made easier with simply being able to talk to someone and not holding it in and having the right guidance has helped me and continues to help me!
Thank you DeJonae and Betterhelp!

DeJonae is an excellent counselor. She is patient, kind, and a great listener. She has worked with me and taught me a variety of tools to incorporate into my life that have improved my mood and lessened my anxieties.

DeJonae is very patient and understanding, she gives me time to talk and provides her own view and support as well, which is exactly what I need. I haven't been able to stay with her long, but the time I had with her (it was my first attempt at therapy as well) was very helpful.

DeJonae is an excellent listener. I feel seen during my sessions with her. She allows me to talk and get everything off my chest and offers practical solutions that I can implement for long term change.

Written by J.E. on Jun 22, 2021 after counseling with DeJonae for 2 months on issues concerning stress, anxiety

I am very grateful to have had the pleasure to work with DeJonae Gardiner. She turned my life upside down! She was always making sure I was okay and always checked in to see if I needed anything or to just wish me a happy weekend. DeJonae has gone above and beyond to listen to my problems as well as giving me a way to see them from a different point of view. I am sad to leave the app for the meantime but when I come back I will definitely ask to be paired with DeJonae Gardiner again!

Written by M.E. on Jun 14, 2021 after counseling with DeJonae for 4 months on issues concerning stress, anxiety, relationship issues, trauma and abuse, intimacy-related issues, sleeping disorders, and self esteem

Dr. Gardiner is attentive and supportive. She is an excellent listener and very patient. She recognizes that sometimes people just need to talk everything out. She is good at asking the right questions and helping to guide you to your own answers BUT she also helps when ypu cant find the answer on your own. I think she has a good balance.

This is myfirst time doing therapy and I feel comfortable. This is the safe space I needed. She's great

Written by M.A. on Apr 19, 2021 after counseling with DeJonae for 3 weeks on issues concerning self esteem

DeJonae is a kind soul who made this process a positive experience for me. Although I find it difficult to talk about my feelings, she created a space for me to do so and asks great questions that get me thinking. I enjoyed working with her and look forward to our next chat.

She’s awesome

Written by N.Z. on Feb 19, 2021 after counseling with DeJonae for 3 weeks on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, relationship issues, sleeping disorders, self esteem, and anger management

DeJonae has been amazing so far! At first, I was hesitant because it is hard for me to open up to people I know, let alone a new person. DeJonae has such a calming spirit and I was very comfortable talking to her. She's also a great listener!
It's still early but I have been able to make some great self discoveries that have helped me understand my behavior. I'm looking forward working with her in the future so that I can unpack more of my "stuff," and heal.

Written by I.S. on Feb 10, 2021 after counseling with DeJonae for 2 weeks on issues concerning stress, anxiety

DeJonae has been helping me for a couple of weeks now. I can tell that she really wants to help me. She checks on me during the week, and we end up messaging back and forth several times a day. She makes me feel at ease. It's so good to have somebody to reach out to in those moments when my anxiety gets realy bad. I highly recommend her to anyone that needs help with anxiety.

Ms. Gardiner is an amazing counselor! So far, I just had two sessions with her and she has helped me immensely already! She is very supportive, professional, kind, non-judgmental, and gives wonderful feedback. I am so glad I have her as a counselor. I feel a strong connection with her already. 

Written by C.H. on Feb 01, 2021 after counseling with DeJonae for 2 weeks on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, family conflicts, trauma and abuse, sleeping disorders, and self esteem

DeJonae has helped me to understand what my triggers are but also helped me identify a problem I didn't even realise I had. This guidance has really put me in a better mind frame and pointed me to the right ways to deal with anxiety and other stresses.
