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

Written by K.R. on May 29, 2022 after therapy with Emilie for 1 month on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, relationship issues, eating disorders, self esteem, career difficulties, coping with life changes, coaching, compassion fatigue, and adhd

Emilie is a very good listener with an immense amount of empathy. She's the exact therapist I needed at this time of my life and I'm so glad BetterHelp had her available to me. She seems relatable, kind, and like someone I could be friends with if we met in a different setting. Of course, she's very professional so we'll never know what that would've been like but she's just so comfortable to to talk to.
