These quotes represent just a few of the many positive reviews that we have received for Kelsey Burdo. 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’ve had two therapists before I ended up with Kelsey. She is incredible. I always found it extremely difficult to stay on track with my thoughts and get to the core of problems because other therapists would just let me talk with no guidance. Kelsey is always asking questions to keep me on track, and also helps me to dive further into core issues. I haven’t been talking to her for long, but she has already helped me tremendously and has been a great support through everything I’ve gone through and am currently going through. Best therapist ever!

Kelsey is always prompt for our scheduled sessions. She offers insightful feedback and suggestions. She helps me to think of things in a different way and truly hears not just the surface of what I’m saying, but the potential underlying causes. My experience with Kelsey has already been extremely helpful after only a few sessions.

I am currently going through a divorce with a narcissist, whom I was in an emotionally abusive marriage of 8 years. It has been a roller coaster to say the least. I switched to Kelsey after my last therapist wasn’t available multiple times in a row. And I am BEYOND GRATEFUL. Kelsey is so kind and so helpful with ANYTHING I am have issues with or just need help deciphering. She always has great guidance without shifting off of the path I am going on. I am LOVING therapy with Kelsey and will continue for as long as I can!!! She is one of the BEST therapists I have ever worked with and I have had MANY! Thank you so much for being you Kelsey. I am sure you have helped so many. You have definitely found your place. And I hope you enjoy it as much as I appreciate your help.
