These quotes represent just a few of the many positive reviews that we have received for Erica Ayala. 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.
Erica feels more like a good friend than a therapist. She understands grief and really helps me keep boundaries for myself and provides support in my decisions when I make the healthy ones. I honestly think she would provide strong suggestions and concern if I don't make a healthy choice. I really appreciate her!!!
Erica is amazing she is very nice but most importantly she very helpful in me getting better
