Written on Oct 05, 2022 after therapy with Diana for 4 weeks on issues concerning relationship issues, and intimacy-related issues

I like how Diana is direct and cuts to the chase but still maintains a sensitive and understanding side. She seems to have lots of tools to frame things in a way that don't seem as complicated as you make them out to be.

My therapist is knowledgeable and provides me with tools I have put into practice to aide in my recovery. Scheduling and communication is very easy too!

Written on Jun 11, 2022 after therapy with Diana for 2 months on issues concerning stress, anxiety, addictions, self esteem, coping with life changes, coaching, and compassion fatigue

Diane has been a tremendous help to me these past few months! She is compassionate, understanding, and knowledgeable. She also shares great tips and book selections to enhance our work. I love the worksheets she provides, they are really helpful. I have made progress and feel so much better after just a few months. I am lucky to have been matched with her on my first try, I credit that to the thorough screening tool you use. I have already recommended Better Help to a friend and donated my free week to her as well. I will continue to promote Better Help to everyone I know, it’s been such a positive experience!

Diana is a kind but firm therapist. She won’t sugar coat things, but she has a gentle heart. In my opinion, it’s the best sort of counseling you can get - since it allows you to reach conclusions or make progress at a pace that is tolerable for you, without enabling unhealthy denial or avoidance.

She makes great reading recommendations, sends you helpful “exercises”, etc. if you would like those tools, and speaks from a place of personal experience, so you feel unashamed and confident.
