I have only just begun with Joy Banks but so far any time I have sent a message she replies almost right away. She hears what I have to say and you can tell she truly cares for helping each individual person in any way she possibly can. I truly look forward to talking to her each and every week. She has been a true blessing and not a moment too soon and my life was every which way upside down and inside out that you could ever imagine. I am really looking forward to any classes or assignments she gives me and I have even taken it upon myself to write everything down from beginning to end for her to read and know where in my life and certain parts that need attention the most. J have always been scared to go into an office or building to talk with someone even though I knew all along it was needed but when your main experience with these type of people was as a child you watch them take your mom back and then few hours later your told you have to leave her there and that she don't get to go home with us it makes you look at these people in a very bad way when they aren't, they are truly just trying to help you the best way they can. So now that it is online this is perfect for me and I look forward to our weekly talks. She has brought confidence and self esteem back into me and my life when it was gone for too many years so I recommend Joy Banks to the world!! She is truly amazing.

Joy is a great therapist. She was able to connect with me, listen and point out the root cause that I’m working on. She’s very approachable and offers great suggestions to tackle my problem. Very glad to be matched with Joy.

I came to Betterhelp after losing both of my parents in a short period of time. I was really overwhelmed with grief. Joy, my therapist, is caring, insightful, thoughtful, timely and helpful. I am extremely pleased with our sessions and beleive I'm progressing through the grief process with her help.
