Kimberlee is incredibly thoughtful. I've so appreciated her services so far, and plan to stick with her. She is empathetic and insightful, but healthily direct, too. I honestly didn't have high hopes about therapy via telehealth; however, she has made it a wonderful experience. I highly recommend her.

Written by A.L. on Aug 21, 2019 after counseling with Kimberlee for 3 weeks on issues concerning stress, anxiety, family conflicts, self esteem, and adhd

At first I was unsure about the program but after seeing it advertised multiple times I decided to give it a shot. I was matched in a matter of hours and have been amazed at the connection I feel I have with Kim. In a very short amount of time she was able to see the real root of my issues and why I cope, process, and deal with emotions and situations the way I do. She has provided very useful worksheets and suggested amazing reading material. In looking into the things she has suggested, I have been able to show my friends and loved ones how accurate it is and a lot of them have began to consider looking into BetterHelp themselves! I could go on and on. I have nothing but good things to say! Highly recommend BetterHelp and Kim!

Kimberlee just gets me! She is so in tune with what I am saying and understands what I mean when I can’t even get the right words to express things. She’s truly a blessing. In the short time I have seen her I have grown leaps and bounds. I had given up hope of being whole and she’s giving me practical tools and amazing advice! On my good days I feel better mentally than I ever have my entire life! My “bad” days are less frequent and less intense as well!

Kimberlee Thomas is a therapist that is thoughtful, knowledgeable and compassionate. She responds quickly and has even put me in live sessions after hours when my work schedule clashed with the appointments that were available. I’ve done years of traditional therapy and nothing compares to BetterHelp with my therapist being so great!
