These quotes represent just a few of the many positive reviews that we have received for Dr. Janet Morgan. 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.
Dr. Morgan is a kind and informed therapist who listens well and provides specific suggestions and supporting resources to guide recovery for both trauma and everyday care.

Dr. Morgan is an excellent therapist.
I have been in therapy on and off for about 20 years and have worked with many different types of therapists. Hands down Dr. Morgan is by far the best I have ever worked with. She is truly exceptional. Kind, compassionate and most importantly requires her clients to take an active role in their well being. She provides a variety of worksheets and uses Choice Theory as a way to assist clients in developing the skills needed to live a mentally, emotionally and physically healthy life. After less than a year of therapy I feel more prepared to navigate my life in a healthy way.

I feel very comfortable talking with Dr. Morgan. She not only listens to me, but hears me… she talks me through the emotional mess that I have swirling about in my heart and mind, and doesn’t make me feel like less of a person because of the trauma that I have gone through in my life. She is helping me dig and understanding on a deeper level Who I am, how to love myself, and how to let go of the past. I am thankful that God placed her in my life, at just the right time! And I look forward to the continued healing within my own heart and mind!

Genuinely positively life-altering. That’s the easiest way to describe my experience with Dr M. Learning all about being aware of feelings without being controlled by them, turning thoughts, needs, and desires into actions and goals, focusing on forward movement and bettering my self. I can’t say enough about her care, encouragement, and teaching. Greater than I ever could have imagined a counseling experience to be.

Dr. Morgan has the experience and approach I need for my severe CPTSD, depression, and anxiety. So glad to get practical help instead of silly platitudes for a change!

Shes not here for the paycheck. She really cares. This isnt work for her and it shows through her willingness to listen and readiness to help you work through it your way. Shes the only therapist i have felt confident with and can trust her guidance.
