Dr. Murphy is amazing. I’ve been working with her for more than six months and have not had a complaint. Very professional and always on time. She will make herself available if needed and is always on top of things.

So far I am enjoying our interactions and feel good about the support. It has only been a couple of weeks, but I appreciate the ease of access and prompt replies. I would recommend this service to anyone, and Dr. Murphy specifically.

I'm grateful for my time with Dr. Murphy and intend to re-enroll with her specifically once I financially re-stabilize. When prompted with the cancellation of my subscription she even referred me to some of her trusted colleagues and for that I'm grateful. Thank you for what you do.

Dr. Murphy's been amazing. The live video sessions are very helpful, but for me, because writing is so therapeutic for helping me sort out my thoughts, the ongoing chat dialog has been a God-send. I've been going through some tough stuff lately, and we chat daily, sometimes several times a day if I need it. She's responsive, kind, listens well, and offers excellent ideas and support.

Dr. Murphy is great. She always is there to talk about what I need. Checks in if I haven't responded. And makes sure I have what I need. 10/10 she gives me what I need out of a councilor

My experience with Dr. Kate has been incredibly helpful thus far. She is available and responsive, so logistically she is easy to work with. On a deeper level, she is very understanding and has helped me realize a few things about myself that I wasn’t aware of. Her focus is holistic, goal-oriented, and 100% personalized. I plan to continue my relationship with BetterHelp and Dr. Kate for the long-term.
