Written by J.A. on Sep 14, 2021 after counseling with Katalin for 5 months on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, relationship issues, family conflicts, trauma and abuse, self esteem, and career difficulties

Kat has been extremely helpful in all our sessions. She always finds the right balance between listening and asking the pertinent questions. She even checks in with me when I have not scheduled a session for a while which makes me feel respected and cared for. One of the biggest things that has stuck with me from our sessions so far is that she told me I am not failing at life but living it and Betterhelp and Kat help me to do that.

Katalin is one of the best therapists I’ve ever had. I moved to a different state, so I can’t see her anymore, but she helped me through so much, and made me feel so much stronger. Honestly, she is amazing, and I am lucky to have been able to work with her while I lived in Florida. THANK YOU, KATALIN!

Written by A.N. on Jul 29, 2019 after counseling with Katalin for 4 months on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, relationship issues, family conflicts, sleeping disorders, self esteem, and career difficulties

I was kinda skeptical going into trying this platform, not sure if it would really help me or not and also nervous about it. Kat is a really great therapist! She is very patient and understanding. She always made sure to check in with me and how I’m doing and there to have sessions when I really needed it if something came up. She really takes her time to process what I’m going through and gives me great feedback and advice to work through things. She does an amazing job and doesn’t make you feel uncomfortable to talk about things that would be hard for you to discuss normally. You don’t feel like you’re being judged in any certain way as some people might make you feel. Kat is always prompt to respond and schedule sessions. I really would recommend her as a therapist to anyone!

Kat is an absolutely amazing counselor. After trying a few on the site with mixed results, I was lucky to find a therapist that was genuinely empathetic, thoughtful, and direct. Talking to Kat felt like talking to an old friend.

She laughed at my terrible jokes and kept up to date with the players and events in my life. Would definitely recommend!
