These quotes represent just a few of the many positive reviews that we have received for Holly Nelson. 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.
Holly is by far the best therapist I’ve ever worked with. I was going through some challenging times and I was able to heal and work through them. We discovered some underlying traumatic moments in my past that I was able to heal and love me for me and be able to grow and be able to be the best versus on of who I’ve always thought I could be. I would highly recommend her for anyone. She listens, digs and pushes you to heal yourself. She teaches you to see the best of you and builds that self love and confidence in yourself. I can’t wait to work with her again. Thank you Holly!

I've been working with Holly for just over 3 months and the amount that we've accomplished together is remarkable. I have a new understanding of codependency and have a clear path to recovery. Thank you so much, Holly!
