Reviews

These quotes represent just a few of the many positive reviews that we have received for Kathy Bates. 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.

I have nothing but praise for this whole experience. Ms. Bates is a wonderful listener and a great therapist that, in addition to session work, provides a lot of adjacent information through diligent research.
