Jessica has been wonderful ❤️

Written on Oct 05, 2022 after therapy with Jessica for 3 months on issues concerning addictions

I haven't had a traditional therapist in many years, and I also have never had an online therapist at all. I wasn't sure if online therapy would be effective for me. I have been very happy with my online therapy and my therapist. She is very personable, a good listener, and has great understanding of therapy practices and issues that I'm dealing with. She has great insight and ideas that are functional and can help me in my day-to-day life. It has only been a few short months, but I already feel better emotionally and I feel like I'm making progress in many areas of my life. I am eternally grateful to Jessica for this.

Always timely, understanding and gives great reminders of the progress I’ve made. The only reason I’m staying with BetterHelp ❤️

I usually start therapy from a negative place, but after a few minutes of speaking with Jessica, I'm immediately put into a better mood. Not sure if it's her lovely personality that does this or if it's just the act of talking, but so far, it's working for me.
