I have alot of trauma and I've been seeing Kathee for only 2 weeks now. But she has helped me gain insight about myself and help fight off those demons. It'll be a long tough road ahead of me but I'm glad it's Kathee who will be riding this tsunami with me.
She really cares. So much that she says it doesn’t even feel like work to her. She genuinely wants to help people!
Kathee is incredibly kind. Supportive, and helpful. I’ve already recommended the app to others and it truly is because she is so wonderful!
From my first session, Kathee made me comfortable and in a safe place. She is honest and blunt which I needed to open my eyes and see my situation. She also help me to stop clouding my emotions and mental wellbeing for the sake of others.
Because of her, I am in a better place. Thank you for leaving a smile and laugh on my face at the end of each session. Highly recommend.
She’s honestly the best. Like I’ve never felt listened to and cared about by a therapist before her. I pay for this service happily for her expertise
I have been feeling quite anxious as I’ve been on a journey with my husband who has been quite sick. In talking with Kathee she makes me feel it’s ok and normal.
She replies back quickly and with confidence. I like that.
Kathee is amazing and blunt and tells me things I don’t want to hear and I appreciate that. It allows me inward inspection of myself. She’s also supportive and lifts me up and has helped instill confidence in me.
The only reason I stay on this site is because Kathee isn’t local. She is extremely helpful and the best consular I’ve ever had
I’m only a couple of sessions in with Kathee, but I really do think she’s an amazing person. I had a councillor before where I spent my session crying and left in tears but I leave my sessions with Kathee in laughter. Maybe tears are necessarily sometimes and maybe some tears are to come but I already trust her. She doesn’t make me feel embarrassed or ashamed and even makes me feel normal. I was ready to leave the better help platform but I think I’ll stick at it now for as long as I can afford it. Thank you Kathee.
She checks on me when we haven’t talked in a bit. She’s very understanding cuz sometimes I take a day or two to respond to her message
I’ve been going through a lot in my life and I’m very grateful and thankful for my friend recommending betterhelp. Kathee has helped me through so much and has helped boost my confidence, I feel very comfortable talking about everything thag I’m thinking about or what’s going on in my life.
Kathee is easy to talk to. She listens and shows that she hears you and your concerns. I've had many councellors and therapists that seem to give generic advise and feedback that doesn't connect to me. She is the first therapist or counselor I've had that I actually liked and trusted.
Very understanding and open and is very interested in every way in getting to know you.
She’s helped me so much
She is very understanding, she listens, and if she doesn't get what you are saying, she will ask and not just assume. She has been a huge help to me.
I would just say that kathee is such an amazing person. Everybody needs to talk with her, she is the kindest and helpful person I've ever talked to.
She is very responsive through text and although we’ve only had one phone conversation thus far, it was thought provoking, healing and very helpful. I look forward to talking more about my traumatic past and learning to cope and deal with it moving forward as I do not want this to affect any future relationships or friendships.
Kathee is very interested in helping me to navigate my life, and helps me to feel good about the decisions I’ve made. After talking with her, I feel so much better. I want to continue talking with her for a long time.
I instantly felt better after my first call with Kathee. I noticed the difference and I'm very glad she was assigned to me. She's very patient, she's affirming, and she responds very quickly.
Kathee is the best counsellor I’ve had with BetterHelp. She actually really understands what I want from counselling and provides the exact kind of talk therapy I was looking for
She is one of the best counselors I’ve ever had she’s a great listener and more than once when I’ve had a breakdown she was there on the fly to listen to me and support me give me constructive criticism. I would highly recommend her to anyone
It was great connecting with you Kathee, felt a lot better and light after the session with you
