Kendall is the greatest. He has helped me accelerate my growth in my mid 20’s and I’m incredibly grateful to have found him.

I have left a review in the past but happy to do so again! He is relatable, professional and always gives the comfort of not being judgemental and gently reminding me I'm there if and when I need him! Calm and patient! And have only used Kendall with better help as my therapist!

I want to write and let you know how amazing my therapist, Kendall, is. I've been working with him since April and it has been great so far. Kendall listens to my needs and respects what I want to get out of our sessions. He isn't judgmental at all and always makes it clear that this is my journey and I'm in control.
I'll be honest, I have used BetterHelp in the past and didn't have a great experience with a previous therapist. They were the exact opposite of Kendall. They were very judgmental about my personal preferences and frequently compared my life experiences to theirs. I'm glad that I found a new therapist that I really connect with and is helping me see the growth that I'm looking for.

Kendall is a thoughtful, respectful, and very sincere person. I feel I can trust him to hear me and not give me a canned, or thoughtless response. I respect him the most because he doesn't bullshit me.
