Dr. Wilson first helped me back in 2020 until I was ok not needing weekly help. Then a year later I requested him again for more counsel because well, life happens. And he willingly took on one more patient (me) when he wasn't accepting any new ones. Great family man, and has many perspectives to bring to the table.
I have really enjoyed my sessions with Dr. Wilson for the past few months. I can share things with him that I don’t feel so comfortable sharing with other people and his responses are usually insightful and useful.

Dr. Wilson has been amazing to me, he lets me know that what I am feeling about certain things is normal and he listens to everything I say. His advice has been amazing and has helped me through a lot. I can not say enough good things about him.

As a person with some pretty severe anxiety, Dr. Wilson was able to relate with his own experience and thus was able to effectively offer methods and advice that could help with controlling my anxiety. We've only had a few sessions so far, but his wisdom has definitely impacted me already and I'm grateful for his help.
I sought counseling with Dr. Wilson after having some trouble with a previous therapist. We were able to work around my changing schedule and I was able to make great progress toward my goals.
I have had Dr. Wilson for a while now and do have breakthrough moments every now and then which make it totally worth all of the work I put in and that he puts in with me. Very accommodating to my scheduling needs and respects my time

I'm fairly new to BetterHelp and about two weeks in with my counseling with Jonathan Wilson.
