Mrs. Johnson has been a great help to me. I appreciate that she listens to me and provides useful feedback and practical strategies to implement when I experience anxiety.

I’m so thankful that I started therapy. Lakitta has been so helpful to me. She listens without judgement and helps me work through difficult situations. I love that I can still have therapy without interfering with my schedule by meeting online. My experience with Better Help has been a good one.
