Heather is a great listener and is extremely good at helping clients arrive at rational thought. I am better off with the time I spent with her.
I love Heather!!
Heather has been working with me for 3 weeks and I can see a difference already.
The work I’m doing is ultimately on me.
She provides me worksheets and challenges me to make sure I’m staying on track with the answers.
She makes sure that I’m ok and that the ability to text during the week has helped me tremendously.
This is a great service and I’ve suggested to people that they look into this.
This has been such a positive experience so far that I have already recommended it. I was very pleased with the in-depth background information gathering that began the process. I found being able to message my responses to be more effective than an in-person interview because I could sit and think through my responses and be sure to share everything that mattered. Heather was helpful 2 weeks before my actual appointment with her took place. The act of sharing history brought up some feelings and the day to day things that prompted me to seek counseling in the first place were present and Heather was available and responsive through messaging. I never waited long for her to answer and she gave me great feedback along with "homework" that got me through the moment and started a toolbox of things I could draw from.
This forum and Heather are working for me and I've just barely begun.
Heather is so supportive with all my little "issues"!! I bet she has other clients that are going through more difficult situations and trauma, but she still makes me important and provides advice that is relevant in each situation. Even when I forget to check-in, Heather reaches out to remind me to connect. I enjoy our conversations!
Heather is very smart, insightful, and easy to talk to. I trust her. I feel like I won the lottery with her!
Heather is a lovely counselor to work with, and always leaves me with valuable insight and exercises that have made noticeable impact on my mental health. She is very compassionate, understanding, and I have never felt like she was judging me, which cannot always be said for counselors. She deserves a bonus ;)
Heather has been supportive in helping me work through a big life transition.
Heather is amazing. She’s patient, nonjudgmental, understanding and always available. She guides you along without imposing herself or her personal opinions on you.
Heather Butler is focused on the problems I have. I wrote to her about a specific problem and she developed a treatment plan for it. She responded very quickly to my email. I am bipolar: and Heather specializes in my disorder and also has extensive training in trauma, which I also have. I would recommend her to anyone. She is kind, thoughtful and excels in her field.
Heather is such a wonderful person. When I joined BetterHelp, my only fear was that the therapists would be like robots, but Heather is so personable and kind. She knows how to offer advice without being rude, and she isn't dismissive with my feelings like past therapists I've had. I am definitely receiving the help I need during my therapy sessions with Heather!
Heather has been such a voice of reason , resource, and encouragement to me since I started. She is a safe sounding board and balanced guide!
Heather is the bomb.com!!
She is very understanding, lovely to deal with
We went into couples counseling not knowing what to expect but hoping for the best. While it took a few sessions to get acclimated to the experience we soon found that Heather made us feel at ease about the process and helped us dive into some of the things we were struggling with. Over several weeks my boyfriend and I have been invested in this process and following Heather's advice as well as reflecting on her insights. We are communicating so much better and have been able to avoid frequent, trivial arguments and spend more time connecting, listening, and working through conflicts. I highly recommend Heather to other couples who may be working through similar issues.
Heather is always such an amazing listener. She always responds in a timely manor with such thoughtful responses. Im so lucky to have her as my counselor!
I am so thankful for Heather's insight, and guidance through this transition. She has helped me gain my strength back and to have the courage to make positive decisions and changes for myself.
I didn't think that therapy would work for me, especially in an online medium where you essentially get therapy through email. However, Heather helped me tremendously and I never thought that was possible from just talking with someone.
It has been such a relief to work with Heather. She is readily available with knowledge and resources in timely manner. Heathers kind and open personality really helps me feel comfortable and motivated to continue working on my goals.
She’s amazing! Listens to me and gives good advice to me. Works with me to help me better understand myself.
Heather has helped me see ways outside of self-depreciation and makes it as easy as pie.
Heather’s expertise showed through from our first conversation. Her willingness to partner with me in trouble-shooting issues we tackle together is so appreciated. Her toolbox is enormous and I feel very comfortable working with her. On this journey through life, I value her fresh perspective!
Heather was amazing! She really took a lot of understanding from what i say and broke it down for me. I couldn't thank her enough. She did a great job helping me. I would recommend her to those who are struggling. Often times you can tell when they don't truly care about your problems but i sense she has a care for her patients. Keep her
I haven’t been seeing Heather very long but I love her already. She is responsive, she listens and gives great advice. I would highly recommend her!
I'm finding Heather very helpful. I'm pleasantly surprised; I was little dubious that a website could take the place of researching my own therapist and having face to face therapy, but Heather is great. I really feel she gets me and my situation. She's struck a perfect balance between support, gentle nudge, and good humor.
Heather is just fantastic--not only kind and thoughtful with her questions and responses, but always at the ready with tools to help me out with any situation I throw at her. It is so wonderful to be able to discuss all of my issues with a non-judgmental, trustworthy person.
Heather has been very helpful during this odd time in my life. Not being able to go out and actually see a therapist I was nervous to try BetterHelp. But Heather listens to my needs, she challenges me to see thing in a different way and I really do love being challenged and making sure I am seeing things from all prospective. I appreciate her response time and always being ready to help and mold me into become a better version of myself.
Heather has been very responsive and has given me many suggestions and lots of thoughts to ponder on. Heather has also provided me with online information for ideas to go along with home work. She is very pleasant and personable.
I enjoy working wit her.
Heather was a joy to work with. We began our sessions during the Coronavirus outbreak, and she was very empathetic listener. Heather offered sound suggestions for mitigating stress and managing relationships with family members. But best of all, speaking with her felt like speaking with an old friend. I felt comfortable expressing myself yet also received an appropriate amount of coaching, i.e. my patterns of negative thought were challenged by Heather in a supportive manner. Finally, I had no difficulty scheduling with her, and she was incredibly communicative throughout our time together. Thanks so much, Heather!
Heather has been great! She’s always responsive, and comes across as caring, even over text. I’d recommend her to anyone.
Heather is a kind and attentive counselor who responds to messages quickly and thoroughly. She makes an effort to understand where I'm coming from and to help me move to a more compassionate and productive place mentally when I'm struggling.
Heather is calming, reassuring and a great listener. She reaches out, gives tips and encouragement! It has been great and I feel okay sharing with her. She is helping me through some really tough stuff and it feels good when I see an email from her!
Heather is a amazing person she takes the time to get to know her clients and works on ways to help better you if you are struggling in a area she will help you out with notes or send you a sheet to help you learn better coping ways to make you a better and stronger person
Heather is compassionate and caring. She is encouraging and she really listens to me. I've had a very positive experience so far.
Heather is great. Extremely responsive and understanding. I feel heard and validated. I enjoy working with Heather.
Heather is extremely knowledgeable, sweet and caring. She demonstrates a lot of empathy even for seemingly minor issues which helps validate your concerns and make you feel heard.
