I’m so glad I got matched with Jan. I really feel like she hears me and puts me at ease in a way many therapists have not. She sends me helpful links to address my problems that can empower me. Our talks feel productive. Also as a small business owner I really appreciate her career coaching knowledge as well. I’m so glad I gave Better Help a try.

Jan is so fantastic! She gives me feedback and the attention I need to get through all the things I’m going through. She gives me just the right amount of homework to get things going but not too much where I feel like it’s homework. It’s actually worksheets and articles that really help me.
