I would highly recommend Joshua Siskin as a therapist I have had two sessions with him and I already feel better. He is a great therapist.

I am greatly thankful for getting matched with Joshua.
His expertise and professionalism have helped me to get back on track.
My anxiety attacks are almost nonexistent after finding out why I have them in the first place, all thanks to Joshua's advice and analysis skills.

I think joshua is extremely caring and dedicated. He's very respectful, punctual and from our short experience he seems like a very capable, skilled and knowledgeable professional in his field. And wiyh that said, a disclaimer should be said as well, the timing of this question is too soon for accurate and strongly based insight. Either way, Joshua Siskin is definitely a very precious soul and he really, really listens.
I don't know if that's the case but better help asked me for a review after what an algorithm would probably see as possitive interaction, so if my hunch is correct, the portion of the good / bad reviews might be controlled by manipulation and that's something more appropriate for a pay to win phone game and not a platform for psychological services. If that's the case and if the reviews are monitored - not cool betterhelp, not cool.
Anyway, Joshua Siskin, so far is really great!
