Jennifer gives the feeling of being very in tune with my needs and helps me create and work towards concrete goals, and guides me to celebrate my successes when I cannot see them myself.

Jennifer is the first counselor that I have been completely comfortable with! She is amazing and comes prepared each time. I am excited to continue with her!

I feel like Jennifer relates to me and my profession and issues and speaks to me in my lingo. I don’t feel as if I’m talking to a superior and this honestly makes me feel comfortable saying the things I need to say.

Jennifer is great! We meshed well from our first meeting. I’ve been with her about six months. She is down to earth and I feel very “safe” with her. Her communication style is direct and she doesn’t “push” a topic if I’m not ready to visit it.

She just gets me. For the first time in my life I finally feel like someone sees me.

Jennifer is absolutely fantastic. She always helps me confront my issues, asks deep questions, and helps form strategies. Furthermore, her open-mindedness is majorly appreciated and she’s not afraid to touch sensitive topics.

Jennifer is not only very patient and respectful in our sessions and communication between sessions, but she is extremely knowledgeable as well. She helps me challenge my beliefs and gives homework so I can keep working toward my goals. I have recommended BetterHelp to all of my friends and hope that they find someone through the vetting process of finding a therapist as well-matched for them as Jennifer is for me.
