These quotes represent just a few of the many positive reviews that we have received for Kathleen Hill. We don’t pay anyone to provide their review and they are all made voluntarily. Some people's experience receiving therapy with BetterHelp might be different.
Kathleen is slowly building a map of my life experience to help track current behavioral issues that spring from deep survival habits formed in childhood and early adolescence which still trigger me as an adult.
She’s the best!
Kathleen is awesome at listening, validating, and giving moral support when needed. She also gives great techniques to feel and acknowledge our pain in healthy ways
Kathleen is incredible, I always look forward to our sessions! She listens attentively and has helped me overcome many hardships and assisted me in making changes that better my life experience. Highly recommend.
Have been in therapy multiple times over several decades and this has been my best experience by far. I’ve made more progress in the last few months working with Kathleen than I had working over years with others. I genuinely look forward to our sessions.
