These quotes represent just a few of the many positive reviews that we have received for Gail Albers. 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.
Gail has a calm demeanor and a very non judgmental attitude towards any issue you bring to her. She has the ability to empathise and constructively lead you to an understanding of self and the stimuli. She has been very responsive and comforting in extremely emotional situations yet leading you to practical solutions and approaches on how to manage that next time. I would recommend her anytime!

I have never attempted counselling before and I was really happy to find Gail to work with.
She has a very professional and friendly approach that makes you feel very supported and listened to. She was able to identify my concerns and made me feel that she understood.
I look forward to our sessions and always gain new insight and practical strategies after speaking with her.
