Written by M.O. on Mar 25, 2020 after counseling with Keisha for 5 months on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, family conflicts, parenting issues, self esteem, and career difficulties

Keisha has helped me a lot and I can’t wait to get more help. I feel I can open up and say anything.

Written by A.N. on Mar 03, 2020 after counseling with Keisha for 4 months on issues concerning stress, anxiety, relationship issues, family conflicts, trauma and abuse, intimacy-related issues, bipolar disorder, and coping with life changes

Keisha is extremely helpful and prompts a lot of thinking. She is open to new ideas and will look into areas she may not have familiarity with, and tries to stay on the ball with the discussions. In turn she will relate back to our exchanges to keep a consistency in guidance and bring back practical suggestions to go forward. She is not judgemental, but she is willing to share an opinion which provides an anchor. We are still in the early stages of our journey and it is not easy, but I have a confidence to keep pushing forward with her help.

I was very nervous about counseling and her unwavering and non judgmental support has made all the difference.

I adore Keisha. She really takes the time to understand what I’m dealing with and help me learn positive ways to get through it. I feel heard and I feel very safe telling her things I don’t share with anyone.

Written by N.I. on Jun 22, 2019 after counseling with Keisha for 8 months on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, relationship issues, family conflicts, trauma and abuse, intimacy-related issues, sleeping disorders, and self esteem

Keisha really goes above and beyond for me. She keeps up with major events in my life and asks about them. It’s like she knows me from the inside out and we haven’t even met.

Written by C.R. on Apr 30, 2019 after counseling with Keisha for 2 weeks on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, relationship issues, trauma and abuse, intimacy-related issues, sleeping disorders, self esteem, coping with life changes, compassion fatigue, and adhd

Keisha is very respectful, none judgemental, and a comforting ally. I came to BetterHealth in near crisis. Having Keisha throughout the week to discuss and provide perspective on coping with things as they come has been invaluable. Being able to use this platform at my leisure as well has been a godsend with my work hours. Despite the fact I have insurance and see a traditional counselor one on one, I am so happy I decided to pay out of pocket and supplement my current treatment options with this service. Keisha and BetterHelp are literally life savers.

Written by C.I. on Apr 19, 2019 after counseling with Keisha for 6 months on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, relationship issues, family conflicts, intimacy-related issues, self esteem, and anger management

Keisha has taken the time and care to really get to know me and my issues over the several months that I've worked with her. I feel like a stronger and healthier person because of the help and guidance she's given me. Don't know where I'd be without her!

Written by A.S. on Mar 23, 2019 after counseling with Keisha for 2 weeks on issues concerning stress, anxiety, trauma and abuse, intimacy-related issues, eating disorders, self esteem, and career difficulties

Keisha is amazing. I’ve only been using this service for almost two weeks, but already it had lifted such a weight off my shoulder. Keisha is very knowledgeable and understanding and has already helped me so much in finding peace and trust with myself. It’s a long scary road but she makes it seem possible and really puts things in perspective for me. I would highly recommend Keisha, her guidance is invaluable.

Written by D.A. on Mar 13, 2019 after counseling with Keisha for 2 weeks on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, relationship issues, family conflicts, intimacy-related issues, eating disorders, sleeping disorders, parenting issues, self esteem, and anger management

I've really appreciated how consistently Keisha has responded to me. Every day she responds is around the same time. I can tell she takes the time to read through, and understand what I'm talking about and what I need. She makes sure she clearly understands me. And she doesn't push. Definitely recommend her to a friend!

She is very patient with me. She made me feel really comfortable and how I can tell her everything. She is been really helpful and understanding what my issues are. A lot of things I haven’t realized my issues and my behavior. I would definitely recommend Keisha to anyone.

I’ve only been working with Keisha a short time, however I feel she has a pretty good understanding of what my concerns are and what direction I should be moving in. On our first phone session I had a very real “aha!” moment that inspired me to keep moving forward.

Written by F.A. on Nov 27, 2018 after counseling with Keisha for 2 weeks on issues concerning stress, anxiety, intimacy-related issues, self esteem, anger management, career difficulties, and bipolar disorder

She's been really helpful and understanding of what my issues are. A lot of things she pointed out are things I never realized was what led to my problematic behavior. I feel very comfortable opening up to her and feel like I've taken a real first step towards recovery with the coping methods she gave.

Written by G.A. on Nov 26, 2018 after counseling with Keisha for 2 months on issues concerning trauma and abuse, and eating disorders

Keisha is amazing. It can't be put into words how much she has helped me. I am eternally grateful.

Written by J.O. on Nov 20, 2018 after counseling with Keisha for 2 months on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, sleeping disorders, self esteem, and bipolar disorder

Through working with Keisha over the last couple of months, I have found great support in our sessions and really enjoy working with her to build up my self-esteem and confidence. She always checks in with me if she hasn't heard a response in a few days, which is good for me because sometimes I'm quite busy or need that extra reminder to respond.

I would definitely recommend Keisha to a friend or colleague!

Written by S.A. on Oct 22, 2018 after counseling with Keisha for 1 month on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, lgbt, relationship issues, intimacy-related issues, eating disorders, sleeping disorders, and parenting issues

She's so kind, helpful, amazing women, and so beautiful, she knows how to help you, how to make you feel better feel about yourself no matter what, and never feel disappointed or sad for the way you born, she knows how to touch your soul, how to make you feel good about tomorrow, she make me feel hope, and I will always be thankful for her until the end of the days. Thank you, thank you so much for everything.

Written by D.E. on Sep 24, 2018 after counseling with Keisha for 1 month on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, family conflicts, and trauma and abuse

I couldn't have found a more understanding and helpful counsellor to help me. Keisha is very easy to talk to and I felt safe telling her things, I felt heard and non judged at all. She is very good at seeing the issue, making connections, and giving you insight as to why things are this way. She has given me much insight on my childhood experiences and how they effect me today and how to deal with the reprocussions. I would 100% recommend her to anyone who has any type of residual trauma or just even wants to better themselves and are unsure where to start/identify the issues. I thank her for her help

Keisha is very knowledgeable and compassionate. She understands and attends to her clients needs. She is very accessible and I loved that she asked profound questions in order to help me explore my own limitations. Thank you for your support.
