I really benefited from the time
I spent talking with Jx. They were a great listener and always gave me really insightful comments on the things I was trying to work out. During each of our sessions Jx shared something that I was able to latch onto and use to help me gain perspective and move forward in a positive way. Thnx Jx!

JX is such a caring person. Follows up on me and I love seeing the message "Your BetterHelp health provider sent you a message". I know she is always there for me. The only thing that I am sad about is that she doesn't accept my insurance. If you need a caring thoughtful and insightful therapist I highly recommend Judith. When my therapy is over I will definitely miss her.
