These quotes represent just a few of the many positive reviews that we have received for Dr. Harry Pearson. 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.
I experienced Dr. Pearson as being for me - he is affirming and gives a lot of space, and also gives insightful feedback in a way that feels manageable. I never felt overwhelmed after we met - he met me where I was and helped me take the next best step. For people of faith, I think he is an especially skilled therapist as he is able to provide a whole person - spiritual, emotional, cognitive, physical - response to the crises that people are struggling with. I recommend Dr. Harry.
Dr. Pearson has helped me tackle major challenges in my mental health that I’ve put off and ignored for a very long time. I really value his input and our sessions together
My therapist is a great guy
