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

He has helped me to navigate some difficult times and also be able to keep a level head through the process of growth which I never knew could be possible. My anxiety has significantly reduced and I feel better equipped to handle challenging situations.
