Written by A.M. on Apr 07, 2021 after counseling with Erin for 3 weeks on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, addictions, lgbt, relationship issues, family conflicts, trauma and abuse, self esteem, anger management, career difficulties, bipolar disorder, coping with life changes, coaching, and adhd

I am a middle-aged woman and have tried therapy multiple times throughout my life. I often felt judged by previous therapists or pushed to talk on things that I was clearly not ready to discuss which lead me to deeper holes of depression and in bouts of pushing people even farther away. After almost a decade of trying to figure things out on my own-or maybe the pandemic had something to do with it? Who knows? I hit a new height of fear and isolation and became scared of what I may do if left to myself and reached out to Betterhelp.

My first counselor and I that were matched were a terrible fit lol I had 2 more sessions paid for so I figured I might as well use them and I requested a new counselor and received 4 profiles to choose from. Luckily, Erin was one of them! Erin is a breath of fresh air to my life. I feel like she is more of a partner in crime working WITH me on my mental health and day-to-day life. I feel like with her in my corner- I am more equipped to handle myself and my inner-workings that have hindered me and previously held me back in life. I am very thankful and happy I stuck things out with BetterHelp and was introduced to Erin. If you have the chance to work with her- take it!!!

I have never done counseling or therapy in anyway. I was at such a low point in my life that I reached to betterhelp. I got matched with Erin as my counselor and it’s practically saved my life. Shes very honest and blunt, but sometimes that’s what needs to be heard. At the same time she’s very flexible with her scheduling, and very considerate. She’s the best, and because of her I am a much better person at a much better place in my life.
