Karen has been so wonderful in my healing journey. After experiencing some sudden changes and not coping well, a friend recommended BetterHelp and I was matched with Karen. She’s truly invested in my healing journey and is a joy to talk to. I’m so appreciative of the work we’re doing together and her kind demeanor. She often offers differing perspectives to help me better understand my situation and how to move forward. I highly recommend her!!
