These quotes represent just a few of the many positive reviews that we have received for Kristy Groves. 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 feel very comfortable expressing concerns and feelings with her and she is very good at communicating her understanding back to me. She takes in and provides an outside look at things and offers great advice.

So far she's been wonderful. She listens to me and is so professional, I've already been seeing improvements.

I have loved working with Kristy these past few weeks. She is attentive to her patients, extremely respectful of my personal preferences, and very open to different and unique ways of thinking. Not to mention, she answers every single annoying question I have very thoughtfully. I'd highly recommend if you are considering working with her.
