Krysten helps me reorganize my thoughts and asks questions to make me see things differently. I tend to get stuck in my own head and she pulls me out of it.

Written by L.A. on Apr 27, 2021 after therapy with Krysten for 1 year and 7 months on issues concerning stress, anxiety, family conflicts, and coping with life changes

Krysten has been incredibly helpful over the last year and a half. It's my longest relationship with a counselor and a big part of that is feeling accepted. She doesn't judge my issues but offers good, simple advice that doesn't seem overwhelming to tackle. We've communicated mostly through emails- sometimes multiple times a day- and haven't had any issues staying in touch.

Written by C.I. on Mar 31, 2021 after therapy with Krysten for 2 weeks on issues concerning stress, anxiety, and self esteem

Krysten was immediately comforting and made me feel heard - I greatly appreciate her help and support and am so glad I started doing BetterHelp!

Written by S.A. on Mar 05, 2021 after therapy with Krysten for 2 months on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, addictions, relationship issues, family conflicts, grief, self esteem, career difficulties, coping with life changes, compassion fatigue, and adhd

When I started working with Krysten, I was ready to engage in the therapy process, but I also had a lot of skepticism due to past experience with in person therapy in my life. However, Krysten has completely changed my opinion on the power of telehealth and on the importance of actually trying the recommendations my therapist gives me. Krysten makes me feel heard, seen, and also initiates really meaningful conversations with me that address everything I want to talk about. Krysten has also helped me identify and begin to manage my stress, how to have healthy boundaries, and how to move forward on loving myself and recognizing my worth! I would 100% recommend Krysten and BetterHelp to anyone that is looking for a positive therapy experience.

Written by E.L. on Feb 02, 2021 after therapy with Krysten for 3 weeks on issues concerning stress, anxiety, relationship issues, and career difficulties

I have been working with Krysten for just over a month now. She is amazing! I feel so comfortable talking with her. She gives me great ideas on how to deal with my anxiety and goes in depth about situations that have arisen and talks me through them. I was at a low point when I reached out for help, and Krysten helped narrow down and talked me through the things that were causing the greatest sources of anxiety. She is knowledge and I can tell she really cares about me and how I am doing.

Written by L.A. on Jan 31, 2021 after therapy with Krysten for 2 weeks on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, family conflicts, and self esteem

I've only had one live session with Krysten so far, but having spent time in therapy prior to BetterHelp, I knew what I was looking for in a therapist. Krysten seems like a great fit for me, in that she is kind, warm, and eager to listen and validate my concerns. I really felt heard by her in our (so far) limited time together.

Ive only had a handful of sessions and conversations with her via messaging & so far it has been nothing but helpful for me! She is amazing. She really does cover all the questions and voices her concerns as well.

Written by E.T. on Dec 31, 2020 after therapy with Krysten for 2 weeks on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, relationship issues, self esteem, career difficulties, and adhd

I have been working with Krysten for over a week and I’ve been very happy with everything that she has done so far. She is always very supportive and considerate of my thoughts and my concerns. She helps me to reflect on what my issues really are and how I can work through them. I would recommend her for sure!

Written by S.A. on Dec 27, 2020 after therapy with Krysten for 3 months on issues concerning stress, anxiety, relationship issues, family conflicts, intimacy-related issues, self esteem, and coping with life changes

Krysten has been fantastic to work with and provide challenging and behavior changing skills I've needed to get through the last 6 months!

Written by J.O. on Dec 10, 2020 after therapy with Krysten for 2 weeks on issues concerning stress, anxiety, relationship issues, and career difficulties

Having Krysten as an active sounding board has improved my relationships with my partner and friends. The messaging is also a very helpful way for communicating. It is like having a journal that answers back with new ways to look at things. The messaging also allows the sessions to be more impactful, because we have already moved the dial before going into them.

Written by S.A. on Dec 09, 2020 after therapy with Krysten for 2 weeks on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, and relationship issues

Written by M.A. on Nov 10, 2020 after therapy with Krysten for 1 year on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, relationship issues, family conflicts, self esteem, and bipolar disorder

Krysten is a weapon in my arsenal to help keep my mental health issues in check. After our sessions I always feel better. I'm glad to have her to help me.

Written by A.L. on Oct 12, 2020 after therapy with Krysten for 2 months on issues concerning stress, anxiety, relationship issues, family conflicts, and parenting issues

I absolutely love Krysten! She listens to me, gives great advice and feedback. She gets back to me in a timely manner and acknowledges what I'm going through. I've done online counseling in the past and had an awful evidence. I didn't feel heard or had to wait days to hear back. This has been a game changer. I love her optimistic approach but she will shoot me straight as well. Highly highly recommend her!

Written by L.U. on Oct 01, 2020 after therapy with Krysten for 4 months on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, relationship issues, family conflicts, self esteem, and career difficulties

I have been seeing Krysten for 6 months now. I thought I was going to do this for a month, and here I am. It’s the best decision I could have taken. Since I started talking to Krysten I feel lighter, better. Like I got something off my chest. She truly listens and helps me find a solution to the problems I’m having. She genuinely cares and does her best to understand what I’m going through. And that to me is invaluable. I had never done counseling before, but I definitely want to keep doing so with Krysten. I recommend her 1000%.

Krysten's counseling is extremely insightful. I can always count on a quick response to my concerns, and her comments are always spot on, as if she has really digested and thought hard about my situation. She asks questions and encourages me to approach my troubles in ways I haven't thought of before. I so appreciate how understanding and intelligent she is.

Written by L.A. on Aug 27, 2020 after therapy with Krysten for 10 months on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, family conflicts, eating disorders, and coping with life changes

Krysten has been a phenomenal resource. I absolutely swore I would never participate but I decided to try Better Help. I recommend this service when anyone I know has disclosed they may be interested in counseling services. In particular, Krysten has given excellent advice, provided very good insight, and been extremely helpful while working through practical relationship issues in real time. She is always very responsive and has always met me where I am emotionally. I can not recommend her more highly.

Written by L.E. on Aug 23, 2020 after therapy with Krysten for 2 weeks on issues concerning relationship issues

She makes me feel heard and helps rephrase my thoughts, asking questions to help shift my mind to a different view of the situation, which is something I prefer, sort of a "helping you help yourself". I like the timeliness of response, especially with this service being a week-to-week service, I like to employ as much time as possible.

Written by V.I. on Aug 22, 2020 after therapy with Krysten for 3 weeks on issues concerning stress, anxiety, family conflicts, and career difficulties

Krysten is amazing. She listened to all my issues and helped me dive deeper into each one, figuring out causes and patterns. She gave me a great perspective on how to go about each problem. I started implementing the solutions she gave and they helped me so much. I feel better equipped to handle future problems now. I don’t look to the future with stress or anxiety anymore. I’m able to think outside what I used to and see what’s right in front of me and focus on that. It’s made me much happier. I can’t recommend her enough.
