Dr. Murphy is excellent. Though I haven't been working with her for very long, I feel as though she is easy to trust and genuinely cares.

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.
