Abbie listens with compassion. She makes me feel comfortable to speak freely. Her input and response indicate her knowledge and respect for what she does! I would recommend Abbie to my best friends.

Abbie was my first therapist I have ever had, and she did a great job at facilitating a good first impression. In many ways she felt like a good friend, and was always kind, respectful, and insightful. The way she framed questions in and of itself helped me reframe the way I looked at my struggles in order to begin overcoming them. Thank you Abbie!

Erika made me feel comfortable being myself and speaking freely. She let me talk but also asked good prompting questions to get to know me and how I think. We've only had one session, but I also sent two messages and she was really prompt with her responses, which is a huge strength of the BetterHelp platform and her professionalism. It feels like I have a mental health ally in her.

Abbie (Erika Luhn) is very perceptive and does not need a lot of information to understand how to help.
