Dr. Kogan is incredibly thoughtful and supportive. She provides a sense of security & understanding that allows me to be more open and vulnerable in our work. I always feel she has my best interest and provides extremely valuable tools & methods to help me through the issues we're working on. I highly recommend her to anyone that wants to proactively work through their issues and see results.
She is absolutely the best. I feel like she understands me so much which I didn’t know was possible with this type of format. I have already recommended to friends!
I've worked with Dr. Julia since the beginning of 2019. She is professional, knowledgeable, kind, and clear.
From day 1, she has listened empathetically and objectively to everything I share with her. She has given me tools for anxiety, motivation, family, and romantic relationships that have helped me transform my life around those themes. I feel empowered by her support and now have a vast toolkit I can use and strategies to implement whenever I need. She celebrates my successes with me and kindly guides me back to our strategies and tools when I have hard days.
I love how she responds thoughtfully, and if I get behind on responding in our messages, she gives me a kind reminder that she is still there for me and hoping to hear from me soon. I can't write enough about how thankful I am to Dr. Julia for her support and care. I highly recommend her as a therapist.
Dr. Kogan has been essential to me throughout this trying time, helping me work through the anxiety that I struggle with on a daily basis.
Dr. Kogan is such a breath of fresh air. She has allowed me to express myself and my concerns but also makes me feel like although the things I have wanted to work on aren't massive things, she makes me feel validated. The questions she asks and the worksheets she sends me are really helpful and actually a lot more thought-provoking than I anticipated. I would highly recommend.
Sometimes you may not believe that someone is helping you until you see the progress you've made. That's what its been like working with Dr. Kogan. I am not the same person who began therapy and I am very grateful for her guidance and consistent support.
I’m grateful to have been matched with Dr. Kogan. I’m learning so much from her, and she’s really good at helping me see things from a different perspective. I enjoy the worksheets and articles she sends me. She’s organized, intelligent, insightful, compassionate, and dedicated. She always responds to my messages, and she’s on-time for our phone chats. I couldn’t be more pleased with the counseling I’m receiving from her.
Dr. Kogan is practical but also compassionate. I’ve noticed a lot of improvement working with her over the years. She is good at helping you realize the answer yourself instead of handing it to you, which I think is really important in building new healthier thinking patterns.
Dr. Kogan is very knowledgeable and is expert in stress reduction techniques. Her techniques have helped me.
Dr Kogan is so helpful and attentive
Fantastic therapist with a high level of empathy who listens to your concerns and provides constructive feedback. Always checks in on you even if there is a week or two between appointment times. Highly recommended for anyone dealing with stress, anxiety or anger in any capacity.
Dr Kogan is always understanding and knows how to break down my issues in ways I couldn't see them myself.
I love her. She is SO encouraging and reminds me to give credit where credit is due, as so many times I am very down on myself and forget to do that. I will eternally be grateful that we were matched on your site. I appreciate her friendship and support so much and hope that our relationship can continue for a long time!
Dr. Kogan was great, she provided a lot of helpful information and tips and you can tell she knows a lot. I would definitely recommend her to anyone struggling with anxiety.
So far, Dr. Kogan has been amazing. I had switched from two other counselors because of their lack of response, and Dr. Kogan has been very responsive. She addresses my concerns in detail and offers me questions, that force me to reflect within myself and come to a conclusion. She helps paint the bigger picture in what is effecting me and helps to offer a change in thinking patterns and in perspective. She's great, and I'm glad I found her.
I made very good progress in dealing with the issues I was struggling with. This doctor put me on a path that will lead to success for me. I would recommend this doctor without reservation.
She is great. I've been speaking to her for over 3 years now since I moved states and honestly did not know how to cope with my new life. I've done very well since then, and the act of writing this out now, made me think that perhaps she is part of the reason why. I'm not entirely sure and I don't think there's a way to know but I think that without her assistance I would not be where I am today.
Dr. Kogan really listens to me, and she provides so many ideas and solutions for working through my anxiety! She gives me different perspectives while processing my thoughts and ideas, and has given me tools to tackle my stress and different emotions as they arise.
Dr. Kogan has been able to give me tools and strategies to cope with massive bouts of anxiety. It is still early days, but those early days have only been manageable with Dr. Kogan's guidance.
I like how she gives tips each week about how to help with things like deep breathing, mediation, etc. We’ve worked a bit on getting multiple avenues that I can use to stay happy and she’s been very supportive through that process.
I was skeptical about this entire process and may not be for everyone. It is working for me. Dr. Kogan is great at what she does! Dr. Kogan listens and breaks down each problem and gives you a little advice and exercises at a time to help you. Doesn't overwhelm you with a bunch at one time. For me I am feeling great and cannot thank her enough. I strongly recommend Dr. Kogan and better help for people in need.
So far I am enjoying this process and the feedback! I think having someone who validates and gives suggestions like you do is so helpful.
Dr. Kogan listens and responds very well with great insight, kindness, and understanding. She’s a fabulous counselor and I’m very grateful for BetterHelp helping me find her!
Through Dr. Kogan’s timely communication and targeted support, I feel like I’m getting more out of this virtual therapy than I ever did in my face-to-face sessions. She listens well and reflects back what she’s hearing and really validates my feelings and empowers me with options and suggestions for facing current or ongoing challenges, and so much more.
So far Dr. Kogan has been really helpful with responding in such an understanding way, providing me with tools to help me, and explaining things greatly for me. I really appreciate the help and insight she’s been providing.
Dr Kogan has been a great help through multiple difficult changes in my life. Being able to see the progress I've made, and the setbacks I've also had. She continues to give me support and makes great suggestions with how to take care of myself and those around me.
I love Dr. Kogan she is the best counselor on this platform and is going to be my recommendation to anyone that is seeking online counseling.
Dr. Kogan is extremely knowledgeable and professional. She listens to what I have to say than asks me just the right questions helping me find my own answers for the problems presented. I believe I have been working with her for about one year now and the changes I was able to achieve are very significant. With the mobile Better Help app its like having Dr Kogan right by my side whenever I need to speak. She answers quick and she is always very engaging on her messages. I very much appreciate Dr. Kogan for her objectivity, her caring personality and dedication and highly recommend her.
Julia is a warm, friendly, supportive, kind and highly knowledgeable therapist. She is proactive and timely. She has great insights into the human condition and provides specific and practical advice.
I've been working with Dr. Kogan for a little over a year. She's very responsive and supportive and always has a great attitude. It's nice to have someone like her to help work out issues.
Dr. Kogan has helped me so much and in so many ways. She’s professional, compassionate and extremely sensitive when it comes to analyzing thoughts, behaviors and feelings. Her attention to detail gives her the ability to truly help and guide me to understand myself and grown as an individual. She’s very considering and engaging, her work ethic and weekly checks in will truly make you feel comfortable, it has allowed me me to open up and express myself in an open and honest way which plays an essential connection for this kind of work and for it’s results to me beneficial. I’m extremely grateful.
I am so thankful to Dr. Kogan for the help she is giving me with my anxiety. She is caring and compassionate and always has wonderful strategies to help me day-to-day. I feel like she really listens to me and understands what I am going through.
Dr. Kogan is extremely helpful and knowledgeable. We have been working on this for some time now. The worksheets she provided me with really help dig deep and think hard about situations, looking from all perspectives. Another exercise we have been working on for my anxiety is breathing techniques and body relaxation techniques. These are great for anyone experiencing extreme stress or anxiety. I highly recommend Dr. Kogan, it has been a pleasure working with her throughout this. She responds in a timely manner and always acknowledges or responds to every little detail that is said. Which is great, sometimes digging further into a small detail can bring out an underlying issue that may have not been brought up. Dr. Kogan and BetterHelp have been a great experience and I hope I can continue getting the help I need and beat my social anxiety disorder to live a healthy and happy life. Thank you, Dr. Kogan and BetterHelp :)
I’ve only been working with Dr. Kogan for a few weeks, but the changes and improvements in my life are huge. She makes me feel heard and supported. She has helped me find clarity and work through some really difficult emotions and life changes. I am extremely grateful for her help.
Dr. Kogan is wonderful! She listens and gives practical advice.
Dr. Kogan has helped me so much in coming out of depression, and is so supportive and easy to talk to.
I enjoy every session with Dr. Kogan. Her response, support and continued interaction is superb.
Dr. Kogan amazingly knows how to respond to my concerns in a level of detail that I'm looking for without setting off any of my triggers. She has never, not once, made me more angry or upset about something than I already was initially. There are many things that irritate me, so this is not a feat to be taken lightly. I feel like I have more insight from a few months of working with her compared to my aggregate progress from years of working with various other therapists.
Dr. Kogan is amazing. She is so supportive and caring.
Dr. Kegan is very sweet and understanding. She helps me see things from the outside which has helped me realize that they are not as bad as I think they are. She follows up and offers suggestions not to tell me what to do but to help me think on my own what would be best to do. I have seen improvement and definitely recommend her.
I feel she is very attentive, and asks the appropriate questions to meet the needs I’m trying to address. Although I have just started I think she has already given me plenty to think about and address. Very pleased so far
I have been consulting Dr. Kogan for a couple of months now. It was her background and personal reviews that led me to her. She is outstanding. Dr. Kogan is patient, direct, compassionate and methodical. Although friendly she is quite the professional ensuring energy is focused wisely and realistic goals are set. I greatly appreciate her proactive assistance in providing options for me to lead a more productive and happy life.
Dr. Kogan is great and super understanding. I love reading her messages; they let me know she is listening and is in tune with my feelings and emotions. I feel heard.
Dr. Julia is fantastic! I have a tendency to be inconsistent in responding but she will check in with me a couple times a week, which reminds me to check in with her and with myself and how I am managing my issues we discuss.
Dr. Kogan is so understanding and knowledgeable is what she is talking about. She helped me drastically the first week I started talking to her. I am so happy I found her.
She has been an excellent counselor who is sincere, honest, and understanding.
I LOVE working with Dr. Kogan. She is so easy to talk to, and has really great concrete advice for managing issues. I’m seeing her for mainly CBT, and she has helped me make easy steps towards feeling better, building up to bigger changes that are helping me manage my anxiety. My mood has been so much better since starting work with Dr. Kogan, and I feel more in control of my anxiety. I couldn’t be more glad to have been matched with her.
Dr. Kogan is very attentive and quick to respond. She cares enough to keep checking in with me even when I let things lapse. She truly is dedicated to her patients and takes time to get the heart of the issue. I feel like every time I reach out, Dr. Kogan is not only responsive in a timely manner, but offers important guidance that is supportive and direct.
I love that she never gives up on me! She always addresses everything I write and then some. She really takes the time and makes me feel cared for. Through this platform I am able to get more in depth interaction then face to face because I can think out my responses and Dr. Kogan can really find the root of the problem.
Dr. Kogan helped me figure out what I desired to do with my marriage and helped me through deciding to get a divorce. She gave me words of advice for everything else including past issues both with myself and my family. Also, my father and ex-husband both had addiction issues so I went through some very difficult times but I always had a place to get my thoughts down and move forward!
I have been working with Dr. Kogan for a short time but it has made a tremendous difference in my life. As a mother of a small baby with a full time job, online counseling on my wacky schedule has been a god send. My anxiety has decreased and I look forward to a more peaceful future.
A great person. Interacts as a human, then helps as a counsellor. 10 out of 10. That is maximum what i could give. Dr. Kogan, you are great.
Dr. Kogan is helping me to better understand my struggle with anxiety. Her suggestions and the space she has given me to discuss my issues has really helped me in a short period of time. I definitely do not regret beginning counseling when I did.
Dr Kogan is cooperative, helpful, and smart.
Dr. Kogan has helped me make progress with myself more than previous counselors I have had and in a shorter amount of time. I am so grateful to have her support.
Dr. Kogan is a great therapist with extensive experience who has compassion for her clients. I had Dr. Kogan for months and I have seen how effective her insight was in my life.
Dr. Kogan has understood my situation very well and has provided me with great advice on how to deal with my anxiety; she has also helped me in my relationship. I feel that she is very knowledgeable in diverse areas and has the right tools for me to improve my condition. She has been with me for just a short amount of time but I feel real progress and I am confident in her abilities, a genuine effort to help me.
She's an extremely dedicated and focused counselor. I appreciate the amount of time and energy she spends to really work with people. If I don't message her often she will make it clear she is there and message me occasionally to let me know that she is here when I'm ready to come back and work with her. I have extreme amount of respect for her skill and drive.
Dr. Kogan has been very helpful in letting me address my issues in my own yet productive way. She is a good listener and does a good job of helping you steer yourself into the direction you need to be moving in while offering helpful advice along the way.
Dr. Kogan gives great advice and is so easy to talk to! I appreciate everything that she did for me and all of her guidance and support. I am feeling a lot better since I started working with her and couldn't have asked for a better counselor!
Dr. Kogan seems to be a caring counselor who has her clients best interest at heart. She has given me things to think about, as well as some sage advice on how to conquer those issues! I feel that she will be able to help me with more guidance from her.
Dr. Kogan is friendly and receptive but doesn't sugar coat anything either, which I appreciate. She offers suggestions without judgment and provides tools that I've been able to work on. Overall, it has been a very helpful experience working with Dr. Kogan.
Dr Kogan has been a wonderful counselor during a very rough time for me. She listens well and offers very rational advice and thoughts. I will certainly be continuing on with her to proactively tackle anything that comes up in the future.
I consider my self truly lucky to have come across BetterHelp. Even more so lucky to have been recommended to Dr. Kogan. There has not been a moment since beginning that I have reconsidered the decision to find help with my every day stress through this online 24/7 resource. The attentiveness, concern, and understanding that is provided by a Dr. Kogan is unmatched.
Dr. Kogan is very attentive, effective and provides good direction,advice, coping mechanisms and exercises for handling (and improving) anxiety and negative thinking.

She’s a dream to work with. She understands me and does anything to help.
Dr. Kogan is a wonderful and kind therapist who really helped me see the destructive patterns of thinking I had in my life, and how to gain perspective on my thoughts and emotions. She also has good life advice and I always take valuable insight from her messages. She messages if I haven't responded in a while which shows she really cares!
Working with Dr. Kogan has been a great experience! Having a professional to communicate with and work through issues (relationship) has been wonderful for broadening my perspective and refocusing my own priorities. I'm fortunate to have supportive friends and family however reaching out to BetterHelp and being paired with Dr. Kogan has alleviated solely relying on them for support. Would recommend!
Dr. Kogan has struck me as a sweet and intelligent lady from the moment I was matched with her. She has a very warm and inviting personality and has a done a stellar job at trying to understand me and accommodate my needs and concerns.
I am very impressed with Dr. Kogan. She has been very helpful, she is the reason I'll continue this service. Thanks.
She is very nice and professional and I like her very much!!

Dr. Kogan is very thoughtful, patient and kind. I feel very comfortable discussing my difficulties with her. She really cares about my well-being and goes above and beyond to help me with my issues. She gives very coherent advice and helps me to see situations from more positive or neutral perspectives. I am very fortunate to have her as my counselor.
Dr. Kogan has been responsive and helpful and lends an air of objectivity to my emotions without being insensitive which helps bring things into focus in a way that might be difficult otherwise. She has never caused me to feel diminished or unimportant and it appears she always carefully considers what I write before responding.
Dr. Kogan has been a fantastic counselor for me over several months. Together, we have worked through various issues and arranged my thoughts in a way that has helped me tremendously. I feel comfortable sharing even the most private details with her. I credit her for giving me the confidence to move forward in many aspects of my life. I have broken out of some pretty deep depressions and feel more confident than ever in my life choices. I truly feel the best I have felt in a long time. We did this together. Thank you Dr. Kogan for your attentiveness and your expert-level counseling. Additionally, it's always great to see you check-in if I have not sent a message in a few days! I always appreciated that.
She is very supportive and responsive to needs, is gentle in her answers but understanding to what the key concerns are and helps you focus on salient issues.

Dr. Kogan is so kind and caring. She reaches out if it's been a while since I've replied just to see how I'm doing and hope that my week is going well.

I feel relieved when I talk to her and I would highly recommend her to anyone who needs a little help and attention. She is truly amazing!

I’ve only been talking with Dr. Kogan for a short time but from the first day I already felt like she was someone I could trust. She is so wonderful in offering tools to help me which I’ve used and they do work! She’s always there to listen no matter what and has an answer for everything. Thank you so much Dr.Kogan !

Dr. Kogan is a phenomenal therapist and counselor with genuine compassion and concern for her patients. Since our work together, she has provided me with numerous actionable exercises and strategies to manage and cope with a variety stressors and anxieties that I've faced as a result of a traumatic life event. Her concern, engagement, and availability has been and continues to be a tremendous source of support in my life.
Dr. Kogan was really helpful and patient in listening to what I said.
Dr. Kogan is a highly competent professional who is equally attentive and insightful. She has provided me with the tools to succeed and free me from my own self-inflicted problems, with which she has helped me to address. I am extremely grateful to have her as my counselor. She has helped me to realize a new chapter in my life, a better and brighter one than I thought possible.
It's only been a short time with Dr. Kogan, but she has already helped me a lot. The level of detail she goes into is really incredible, and she goes to great lengths to address every single concern, while also keeping a big picture mindset and trying to prioritize activities and efforts for the fastest and most effective recovery. I would 100% recommend her to others in need of counseling.
I feel she hears me and not just listens to me and I've already tried to get two people I know to do counseling!
She is an expert, she listens to you and is capable of quickly identifying the root of your concerns and problems. I would recommend her. My wife and I are both doing therapy with her.
Dr. Kogan is very friendly and a safe voice to talk to and open up to. So far, she has been very helpful in allowing me to feel free to get things off my chest.
Dr. Kogan is very responsive and even though we have spoken just one time she did give me ways and ideas on how I can relieve stress and gave me accountability on how I can do those things. She also is very responsive to text messaging via BetterHelp as well. I totally recommend her.
