She doesn’t let you slide into self pity for long! Therapy is a two way street, and so appreciate the challenges and reframing Krysten gives me, as well as an ear and support. Honestly Krysten is one of the best therapists I’ve had yet! PTL

Krysten is amazing at what she does. I always feel heard, and has given my the exact support I needed. She challenged my negative self talk (among many other things) and really flipped my world around. I recommend her! Talk to you after my trip :)

Krysten has given me some excellent tools to navigate challenges. They are often things I had never considered and have been helpful.

I had been interested in seeing a counselor for some time and decided to get BetterHelp when the pandemic first started. I wasn’t sure what to expect, but it was an affordable alternative to traditional therapy so I was willing to give it a try. I was paired with Krysten right off the bat and I was really impressed with her professionalism and expertise in my specific counseling needs. Even after I took some time away from BetterHelp, Krysten continued to send me weekly quotes and affirmations pertaining to mental health when I wasn’t even paying for counseling. Krysten truly went above and beyond to make sure I felt seen, even when she didn’t have to, and that made my decision to come back to BetterHelp that much easier.
