Written by T.R. on Jul 02, 2021 after therapy with Kristi for 10 months on issues concerning stress, anxiety, family conflicts, trauma and abuse, intimacy-related issues, parenting issues, self esteem, anger management, and career difficulties

I am so appreciative and grateful of having Kristi as my counselor. She follows up, checks in, and approaches things in a caring way that challenged me, but helped me to understand things I couldn’t see on my own. She pointed me in the right direction when she recognized it was time for me to move towards my next steps in therapy. Very resourceful and flexible when I needed to connect with her. I will miss our chats, she’s the best.

Kristi is an amazing counselor. She communicates clearly and sets realistic expectations. She is perceptive and tailors her time and techniques to the individual so you feel seen and heard. She is an excellent listener and is able to synthesize my experiences and ask questions that push me to work towards growth. It has only been two weeks into working with her and I appreciate her warmth, humor, empathy, honesty and growth inspiring nudge.

Kristi is great at listening and providing practical tools. She helps focus on my goals and I feel safe to share my issues without feeling judged or made to feel like my concerns aren't valid. She also makes sure to check in and is very accessible. I didn't know what to expect with counselling but this has been a great counselling experience and I feel hopeful that I can make healthy changes in my life.

Kristi has been so helpful over the last couple of months of using Better Help! I am so thankful to have been paired with her after my first counselor quit counseling after only a few days of speaking with her. Kristi has helped me to know how to recognize what it is that is messing with my mood and be able to work through it and improve me mood! I truly hope that if I ever need counseling again, that I am able to be paired with Kristi! I appreciate everything she has done for me and I highly recommend working with her!

Kristi is great. I really like her approach. She is a bit "tough love" sometimes, but I think this is what I need, not to get away with things easily. She is very quick to respond to my messages. I really like the feeling that I can reach out to her at any time. This alone comforts me. I would definitely recommend Kristi, and I have recommended Better Help to a couple of friends already.

I am in a time of need, and Ms. Myricks has been here for me. Through thick and thin, she has affirmed me even when I have been too gutless to affirm myself. She's given me the tools to stand back up straight again and begin to hold my head high instead of being stuck in a wallowing, helpless pit. She's been the outstretched hand that gives me goosebumps to be able to stand up, take my mat and walk again. I'm still on a journey, and I'm thankful, so thankful for Kristi Myricks, cause I might not be where I'm at in this journey if it weren't for her.

Within the first 24 hours of signing up, Kristi brought me out of a dark place and provided the tools I needed to put me on a path of positivity. For years I have sent myself negative messages without realizing it. I am now able to recognize these messages and derail them rather than letting negative / irrational thoughts prevail. Kristi was highly responsive and replied to my messages within minutes. We exchanged at least ten messages the very first day. I am grateful for her caring nature, helpful suggestions and support. Thank you, Kristi!
