Erin has been so great to work with! I appreciate her ability to ask great questions that really make me think and self reflect in ways I hadn't before... Ways that help me to progress through issues and move beyond feeling stagnant. I would highly recommend Erin and BetterHelp to anyone and everyone.
I have only met with Erin a few times so far, but she’s already challenged me to see things differently in my relationships to help me better understand and navigate them. She listens to me, is easy to talk to, and is very skilled. I highly recommend her!
She is so great!
Erin is competent, kind, and compassionate. I appreciated her help and expertise.
Erin is great! I have enjoyed working with her and respect her perspective. My favorite part of working with her is that she isn't afraid to tell it as it is. I need that personally :). No beating around the bush, you know?
Erin listens to me. She offers extra materials such as Ted videos and books to review too. She pushes me to be better.
I've been working with Erin for a couple years now. Because of my experience with her I have recommended BetterHelp to many friends and colleagues. Erin is kind, empathetic, but will also call you out on your "B.S." in a very kind, if sometimes blunt way. I don't much believe in fate or destiny, but sometimes I wonder if the stars did align in the perfect way to allow me to find Erin. She has helped me on my healing journey, encouraged me to grow and sat with me as I cried. Erin has a very wise & motherly vibe, which I so appreciate. I will always be grateful for Erin and for BetterHelp.
Erin understand my particular needs. She asks pointed questions to encourage reflection. Erin leaves me with useful skills to practice. I would highly recommend Erin to any friend or colleague.
I feel truly supported by Erin. She is extremely knowledgeable in trauma and the impact it has on our life. She challenges me to change my negative thought patterns and unhealthy behaviors.
Erin was great. I had to cut my time with her short due to moving but during the time I was with her she helped me gain more awareness about myself and my emotions. I also appreciated that she would push certain topics that I may have been skirting around in order to get to the root of certain issues. I would definitely recommend her. Her experience with therapy and knowledge were definitely visible whenever we talked.
Erin is the first counselor that worked for me, after trying four other ones. Thus, I can say that I considered her to be a great professional capable to connect to people with vulnerability issues.
Erin is spot on!
Erin is very good at listening to your needs and providing solutions at a pace that is reasonable and achievable. These small steps add up to larger changes. She is empathetic but also pushes you on difficult issues as you can handle them. I highly recommend Erin.
Erin is amazing! She’s so good and insightful I really appreciate her.
Erin is great! She's easy to talk to, she has such a way with words. I highly recommend her!
She is a very knowledgeable counselor and knows her stuff. I enjoyed talking with her every week and each session was unique and different. I learned a lot about myself and got to the root of the problem. I realize that it will take a long time to get over my anxiety. It's not an easy quick fix. I loved her personality and she is very easy to work with. Make sure you ask for homework assignments because they are fun to do. Anyways, I totally recommend her! I'm thankful she was there for me.
She saved me. I was sliding down hill & could not seem to put the skids on by myself. But with her help I have climbed high out of that old pit & tackled all those problems one at a time & gotten past them. I had been to therapist before & they dealt with the one problem I had today & never tried to address any of the others. She helped me sort them out by priority & then deal with each one. I have found more balance than I have had in years. I have shared this with several people. I know they will be pleased if they need help. I definitely found my helping angel. thank you. Thank you.
I wish I had found Erin and BetterHelp years ago. Erin has helped me in so many areas of my life, and the convenience of online counseling makes the experience stress-free for me. I have been to several counselors over the years, but never found a perfect fit. Being matched to an expert based upon so many different criteria has made all the difference in the world. I have recommended BetterHelp to many people. Erin is amazing!
Erin is the best! I totally lucked out when I got her. She has been counseling people for years and her expertise shows. I have never had an online counselor before, but she is better than many people I've reached out to to get treatment in person. I will stay with her for many years to come.
Erin is amazing. For over four years I struggled thinking I was crazy and stuck in a whirlwind of grief and trauma and chronic anxiety. I tried other therapists and none of them could handle my baggage. Erin is supportive and firm, she knows my limits and helps me to push through them. She has truly changed my life. She is an amazing soul and one I’m grateful to have met.
Erin is great. Easy to talk to. Very accommodating. One of the best I've tried working with. I would highly recommend.
Erin is a great counselor! She is a consummate professional who is personable and very responsive. She excels at making the innovative online experience as beneficial as a traditional office visit!
I strongly recommend Erin without a moment’s hesitation. She has been just exactly the type of counselor I need. She is one of the most kind and caring people I’ve met, but tough. She knows b.s. when she hears it and calls me on it. She challenges me when I need to be challenged. She congratulates and celebrates me when I find my strength and courage. She has never told me what to do, but rather helped me to find my own true path and then trust it. I have made/am making it through a very difficult time in my life thanks to Erin’s help.
I’ve had a handful of therapists throughout the course of my life. Erin is hands down the best one I’ve had. It was true luck and timing that I found her. She is unpredictable (in a good way), flexible, and respects where I am at in my life and with my problems each time we meet. She is the perfect combination of proactive, understanding and gentle.
She is awesome. She is for people who are okay with direct communication. I really like her.
I have finished my recent therapy with Erin, and all I can say is you need to talk to her! She has been absolutely amazing and I will return to her if I have anything else come up in life. I'm going to miss you Erin!
Having the opportunity to work with Erin has been absolutely amazing. She has an amazing ability to guide and work through so much of what you throw at her! Love working with her!
Erin was incredibly well-matched to my concern. She is very professional but very accessible at the same time. In the end I found a friend not just a counselor. Our relationship was short-lived, mainly due to her guidance. She gave me just the tools I needed to get me through, probably, the toughest thing I ever had to do in my life. My whole family benefits. Thanks Erin, for your direction and no beating around the bush attitude. You saw what I needed and your expertise and counsel gave me my life back.
I have only met with Erin via video chat a couple of times so far but she seems to understand my concerns and pushes me to open up in just the right amount. She also takes the time to text me if she thinks that I'm not doing well between sessions. I would definitely recommend her to a friend or family member. I usually don't write reviews but you, Erin, earned it.
Erin has been incredible for me. On our very first session she brought to my attention and put some names to problems and feelings that I have been having for a very long time. I definitely had a "breakthrough" moment with her, during our first counseling session. It is very easy to open up to her and feel supported, comforted, and cared about. Excited to continue our counseling and relationship.
Erin is so great! She has made me feel comfortable, and is understanding and personable. I wish I would have found her months ago!
I have only been working with Erin a short while, but so far I’m very impressed. She has already shown more insight into what I want to work on than other professionals in the past. She is compassionate and understanding.
I am so glad that I found Betterhelp.com, and was then matched with the amazing Erin Vasquez. I needed help ASAP, and I was put in contact with Erin within 24-hours. She is a PERFECT match for me - more than I ever could have hoped for. We had our first phone session within 2 days. I didn't think she would be able to make a significant impact in the first hour-long session, but I left that session feeling better than I had in weeks. I was then completely blown-away by her responsiveness in the following days as she continued to helped me through some very difficult issues. Although we are not in the same state, it has made absolutely no difference. Betterhelp was the best choice for me for several reasons: 1) I got help immediately. I had tried to find a local therapist and was told I couldn't get in for several months! 2) I can message Erin at any time, and she will respond as soon as possible. I can schedule as many live sessions as I need/want through out the month. The traditional meeting with a local therapist only once a week would not have been as effective for me. 3) It's affordable and a great value!
I love how warm and friendly she is. I love how inviting she is and how she makes me feel and find my strength I never realized. She's such a great therapist.
