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'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 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!
