Very helpful. This epidemic is a big problem and Kristen and the team is working hard to give people the help that they need remotely through voice, video, and text chats.
Kristen listens and interacts with me in a terrific manner. She understands my emotional needs and how physic al problems impact my emotional state. She is very open to communicating through writing, which I love.
Kristen has been a wonderful therapist for me to work with. Excellent at helping me manage my widely fluctuating energy.
Kristen has been an absolute life saver. Completely understanding, perfectly non- judgmental and full of energy. Her expertise and experience is endless but she waits until the perfect moments to unleash them on you.
She’s the only therapist I’ve had where I was excited for an upcoming session, regardless if I knew what I wanted to talk about before hand.
Kristen was a very caring and capable counselor during a difficult time.
I like her
You have helped me so much. I'm so glad I decided to get help and I'm so grateful for you
Awesome so far
Kristen is a terrific therapist. I feel totally at ease and comfortable talking with her. She is totally supportive of me and my situation. I'm very glad to have started my therapy with Better Help and Kristen.
She is very kind-hearted, motivated, enthusiastic, and humble. Now, I can do very well at school because of her guidance. I am looking forward to work with her again.
Kristen is great! She is super easy to talk to, listens to what I'm saying, understands what I'm going through, and always has insightful questions or suggestions. Kristen was instrumental in helping me break out of my unhealthy patterns and get better at dealing with my anxiety and stress. Kristen also provided a ton of encouragement along the way as I was starting to make progress, which was much appreciated. I am glad I found Kristen and got to work with her.
Kristen is so wonderful and we are just getting started but I already feel so connected with her! I am looking forward to continuing therapy with Kristen!
Kristen is terrific!
