These quotes represent just a few of the many positive reviews that we have received for Dr. King Counts. 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 worked with several different counselors and strongly feel that he's been the only one so far that has genuinely expressed interest in helping me. We haven't been meeting for long but it's very evident that he cares, is knowledgeable and willing to try different forms of therapy to find solutions. I'm excited to find healing as I continue to talk to Dr. Counts!

Dr. Counts is a wonderful counselor, who listens carefully with compassion, concern and understanding. He is helping me with anxiety, depression and trauma issues. In just a few months, I am feeling much lighter and making progress towards some important improvements in my life. He is non judgmental and gives practical, applicable ways of handling stressful situations. My anxiety is improving, depression is lifting and I have a renewed hope in my spirit. He has been an answer to prayer. He is very knowledgeable and skilled in his practice. He was able to understand problems that I was unable to clearly articulate. I highly recommend Dr. Counts!

I have a terrible way with words and sorting out my feelings. During our first session, he helped make some things I was feeling more clear so I could better deal with them. Looking forward to our next session!
