Written by A.N. on Jun 18, 2020 after counseling with Destinee for 2 weeks on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, trauma and abuse, sleeping disorders, self esteem, compassion fatigue, and adhd

So far, my experience with the BetterHelp platform and with my counselor, Destinee Abrego has been a positive one. The platform lends itself to ease and flexibility around your schedule. My counselor is very receptive and open to listen. She makes sure to validate my thoughts and feelings and I am confident that with her guidance I'll be able to learn and execute healthier attitudes and behaviors that will lead to a better quality of life.
