Jessica is so kind, respectful, and helpful. She's also so capable at recognizing which types of therapies work for me and which don't and suggesting new ones to try. She's incredibly patient and understanding, and she's the first therapist I've had that I feel truly cares about my wellbeing. I'm so glad that BetterHelp paired me with her.

Jessica is the second therapist I’ve tried on here and I won’t be trying anymore! She helps me in several ways and doesn’t just make me feel like I’m talking to a friend. I enjoy her professionalism along with her ability to relate. I am happy I got her on the second try she really has made me enjoy therapy.

Jessica is amazing. Talking with her feels like talking to a friend, yet she takes a neutral stance and offers additional perspectives. I feel like she truly cares for me and my well-being. Despite all that I tell her, she really listens and remembers names and details. She is also very responsive to messages in between video sessions. I would highly recommend reaching out to her, you won’t regret it

I connect so well with Jessica and she actually listens to me even if I sound ridiculous. She is very easy to talk to and supportive. I would recommend her to anyone!
