Great experience working with Josette. I found Josette to be incredibly helpful - insightful, supportive but always willing to challenge me where i needed it. I look forward to continuing my therapy with her and would recommend her without hesitation.

Josette Prisk, or as I like to call her Josi, is a remarkable therapist. I had no idea what I was getting into when I first started looking at BetterHelp. I have long labored under harsh prejudices about mental health and the people who provide these services. I was wrong, very wrong. Josi has been there for me and helped to turn my life around. She listens well and is piercingly insightful! Not only that, but she is also extremely knowledgeable and instinctively knows how to point this old dog in the right direction. Time and time again she has cut through my mental fog and given me the tools to do this for myself. Her compassion is matched with empathy. We connect. And if there is one thing a therapist must be able to do it's connecting with the patient. Trust is definitely there. Honesty is there. She has become my true north for several months now and I have managed to sail through the worst storm of my life thanks to her. I really cannot say enough kind things about Josi. I was truly lucky to have found her and I am extremely grateful to receive her care.

Josette is an extraordinary therapist who takes the time to understand the needs and concerns of her patients, and has a keen sense of how to work with them to identify them themselves. She is strategic in the way she works with you, allowing you to do the work in conjunction with her in identifying and working through your emotions and or traumas. Highly recommend Josette on Better Help!

The person who gets me even though we have never met. She has helped me understand and accept things at my own pace without shaming you in any way. She is the best.
