Reviews

These quotes represent just a few of the many positive reviews that we have received for Heather Breems. 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.

As I am older than Heather by a few years I wonder if she could help me. Also I have a deep Christian faith so I started out questioning that she could understand me from that viewpoint. These concerns quickly became non-issues.
Heather listens well, respects my faith and how that faith intersects with the issues I want yo resolve.
Heather has proven herself beneficial to me as I work to resolve some lifelong issues that negatively impact my life.
