This woman is literally amazing!! I couldn't express how grateful I am that BetterHelp chose her to be my therapist this time around. I really was in a dark spot when I found her and in just two sessions, Deshala has truly gone above and beyond to ascertain I find the clarity I need. Though she is my therapist, she feels like a friend. She sits there sometimes far longer than she should, really listens and provides genuine, objective feedback making it a conversation that facilitates growth and feels safe. I actually used BetterHelp a year ago and was unimpressed with the service but am happy I gave it another chance. Highly recommend and BetterHelp is so lucky to have her as part of their platform
