Kelley Ryan has helped me overcome issues I thought I would never be able to make progress on, in just a few weeks! With her help, I already feel as if coming to Betterhelp was one of the best choices I’ve ever made. I highly recommend her. Thank you so much!

Written on Jul 07, 2022 after therapy with Kelley for 8 months on issues concerning stress, anxiety, and coping with life changes

Kelley was everything that I needed in my time of need: she was calm, she listened, she asked insightful question and most importantly I felt completely safe sharing all my thoughts with her. Kelley also gave me exercises to help with my worries, stress and personal boundaries. Moreover, she would always contact me during the week to see how I’m doing. I highly recommend her to anyone dealing with stress, anxiety and career issues.

Written on May 22, 2022 after therapy with Kelley for 8 months on issues concerning stress, anxiety, and career difficulties

As this was my first experience with therapy I was very nervous and unsure what to expect. Kelley put me at ease from the very first session and was always a great listener. I felt very comfortable opening up, and she had good advice on how to address what was bothering me or how to think of it differently. Kelley checked in with me every couple of days between sessions to see how I was doing if she hadn’t heard from me which I appreciated. Would highly recommend!

She is great! Feels like a friend but sends me helpful homework

Written on May 11, 2022 after therapy with Kelley for 2 weeks on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, and grief

Since I have been having sessions with Kelley I feel I am moving through the grief stages calmer. Before I started sessions with Kelley I felt overwhelmed and lost as to what is next and how to handle the feelings of loss and pain and sadness at losing my husband of forty seven years. Kelley has helped me to open up and share those feelings and see there is a lot of hope still. She is understanding and always listens to what I have to say and gives her perspective. She is helping me navigate through the hardest time of my life.

Kelley is really thoughtful. She's a great listener and is very engaged during our sessions. She takes time to send me worksheets to try when I have issues I want to reflect on. She also takes time to message me once a week to check in or send me some encouragement. I really enjoy our sessions and I've been grateful to have the support while I navigate through this stressful time in my life.
