Im in the service industry, i talk to a lot of people and if we chat about needing someone to talk to or anything in that manner, i tell them to check out BH they have what/ who you need to help you with anything. Such a good platform.

My counselor is amazing they feel like family and I can talk/ ask anything ans not feel uncomfortable or ashamed.

Dr. Perez is an absolute joy to talk to and even during some of my hardest and darkest times, she's helped lift me up and give me some real perspective. I would highly recommend to anyone who needs someone who is an excellent ear and who can help guide you through whatever you're going through.

Dr. Perez is an attentive listener compassionate counselor and always provided a safe non judgmental space for me in our therapy sessions. She offers helpful advice when I ask for it and was always there for me when I needed guidance. I feel empowered and heard by Dr. Perez and hope others can experience therapy of this quality, even via remote therapy.

Written by H.E. on Sep 16, 2020 after counseling with Karen for 2 months on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, relationship issues, eating disorders, and anger management

I came to counseling because I was going through a turning point in my relationship and life and was having a hard time reconciling how I felt about everything. Dr. Perez helped me focus on myself and gave me that person to talk to when I didn’t have anyone else to tell about what I was feeling. It was nice because I didn’t feel like a burden by always talking about my problems to someone but it didn’t feel as formal and was more accessible than regular counselling so I felt more comfortable to talk.
