Javier is so attentive and understanding. He helped me explore my emotions and root problems and providing me tools to overcome my battles. He’s a great listener and compassionate. Would recommend him 100%.

Javier es increíble. Al principio tenía mis dudas de probar Betterhelp, pero me siento gratamente sorprendida. La aplicación es súper sencilla de usar, tiene muchas herramientas con las que te puedes comunicar con tu terapeuta y obtener respuesta casi inmediatamente. Por otro lado, estoy muy feliz que me hayan asignado a Javier como mi terapeuta, siempre está atento y a la escucha, incluso con cosas que yo siento que no son tan importantes, él las recuerda y retoma 4 o 5 sesiones después cuando yo menciono nuevamente el tema. Gracias Javier, infinitas gracias por estar ahí.
