I was nervous to go to counseling but I was willing to try BetterHelp because it worked with my life and work schedule. I was paired with an amazing counselor who I’ve been able to connect with and confidently share everything with. She’s always attentive and makes me feel comfortable being open, which Is hard for me. Im so grateful for her doing one of the happiest yet hardest times of my life.
