These quotes represent just a few of the many positive reviews that we have received for Kerry McCommons. 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.
Kerry has been such a wonderful counselor to work with and has helped me in ways previous counselors have not helped me before. I really enjoy analyzing conversations with her and she’s also super warm, accepting, and understanding of whatever situations you go through. She’s helped me transform my mindset with things I’ve struggled with for years and feel with Kerry’s help that I am becoming a more wholesome, happier person. I can’t recommend her enough!

Kerry is absolutely wonderful to speak with. She puts me at ease. Listens intently to all of my concerns and follows up with thoughtful responses. She responds promptly and sends messages to check in on me on her own accord. I have gotten a lot out of our sessions. Best therapist I've ever had!
