He’s an amazing listener and provides actionable advice that helps.
Very understanding and has great times to reach out and call, highly recommend
JonPaul is a thoughtful listener, I appreciate his ability to help me look at things from another perspective.
Mr. Dufour is very open and great at listening and has great advice when it is needed. In just a few weeks he has managed to help myself with some confidence and release some of my stress through talking.
JonPaul is very attentive, he provides great support. He reaches out when i become distant and he allows me to better understand my trauma.
JonPaul is great, he is relatable and understanding for me, especially me, being a man in his late 20s i feel he is old enough to offer his wisdom as well as relate to on a level that isn’t completely out of touch with my age range/generation.
JonPaul was great. He listed to my issues and gave me great advice. The reason for leaving this service was because of scheduling.
I was always afraid to start therapy and find a therapist because I heard it took a few tries to find a good match but Better Help matched me perfectly with an amazing therapist. I feel so comfortable talking to him about anything and he always has the best advice. I’ve recommended Better Help to all of my friends and family and I always brag about how good my therapist is. JonPaul has offered so much help and I’ve personally seen a big difference with me in only the past few months. Thank you JonPaul.
JonPaul is a very good listener. Not judgmental. A great person to have my first experience with.
Jon is amazing!
JonPaul is a great listener. I can tell he makes a lot of time in his busy days to care individually about my sessions, concerns, and progress. He gives me the affirmations I need & gets real with me when I’m kidding myself.
After just a couple months I am already seeing noticeable improvements in my mental health & wellbeing, as well as these improvements reflecting in my personal relationships. I owe so much of this to JonPaul.
I'm grateful to have been paired with a professional, intelligent, nurturing & motivating therapist. I honestly look forward to our sessions & end each of them feeling empowered & supported .
Thank you for always being non-judgemental, transparent & encouraging of my growth, JonPaul.
I was hesistant at first to try therapy. But after having my first session with JonPaul, I felt more relaxed. He was a patient listener, his responses to my situation were very thoughtful and encouraging. It is a pleasure to have him as a counselor.
JonPaul is a versatile therapist; he was able to relate and communicate to me despite having different backgrounds and experiences. He clearly knows what he’s doing; he is careful with his messages but makes sure that he gets a relative message across the conversation. A short session or a message from him gives me relief with what I am going through. It makes things seem easier and bearable, that I instantly think that there is a solution to my every problem. If I could personally thank him for his work, I would do so. I’m impressed with his work.
