I have been working with Helen for a few months. It started off with grief but she has helped me with so much more. She listens, patient and has a knack to pick up on things in our conversations that gives her a sense of where I am and help me get to where I need to be. She celebrates the wins and helps you through the difficulties. I would definitely recommend her.

I have been working with Helen through one of the hardest years of my life, and she has helped me tremendously with understanding not only myself, but anxiety that can inhibit my judgement. I am so thankful for her and her guidance!

I was really hesitant to start therapy/counseling but I was basically at my wit's end. Helen was able to successfully help me learn ways to handle/cope with grief, stress, anxiety and a few other factors. I didn't feel judged at all and she was extremely compassionate and patient with me. The only downside to my move is that I couldn't keep Helen as my counselor but I GREATLY recommend her to anyone dealing with similar issues.

I am only two weeks into using this app. I think it has helped a lot. I love being able to send journal entries and have her respond promptly. She is also very caring and easy to open up to. Highly recommend.

Helen has truly changed my life! I’ve been through a lot over the years but somehow remained a little resistant to therapy. I thank god every day that I took this leap and I am forever grateful to Helen and the better help app. I feel positive for the future and it is thanks to Helen! I look forward to continuing on this journey and working more on my mental health. A thousand thank you’s wouldn’t be enough!!!

Was made to feel comfortable and at ease with both Helen and myself from the start. Very approachable. Strongly recommend Helen to future clients...a real soul searcher.

Helen was wonderful to work with- she was able to dig in quickly & help prioritize needed action. I preferred video calls, which went great and she always had followup worksheets, references & items to share as well to help me chew on or focus on in-between sessions. I appreciate either her fantastic memory or great note taking, as Helen was always on point at picking up where we needed & recalling past conversations for a very additive conversation!
