These quotes represent just a few of the many positive reviews that we have received for Karen Heinrich. We don’t pay anyone to provide their review and they are all made voluntarily. Some people's experience receiving therapy with BetterHelp might be different.

Karen and I have developed a good rapport in a pretty short span of time. She’s always professional and listens well. I appreciate her directness and honesty.

I contacted Better health and within a day I was partnered with a counsellor Karen Heinrich. She contacted immediately and we booked for the next day. I was severely sad during our first session and by the end of our session I had regained a manageable level of my sadness. Karen checked my wellness by text almost bi-daily and we met again weekly with no waiting period. Karen efficiently gave me coping skills to better deal with my sadness and Covid isolation.
I highly recommend anyone having difficulty with effects of Covid, don't wait as long as I did, seek help even if it's just to confirm your mental health is well.

Karen is a lovely person. She’s a great listener and helped to suss out issues that really bothered me. I found that her recommendations on how to handle stress and negative thoughts were also quite useful.
