These quotes represent just a few of the many positive reviews that we have received for Dr. Laklieshia Izzard. 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 came to Dr. Izzard feeling lost and looking for guidance and strategies for overcoming the hurdles I was up against in life and she was immensely helpful in doing just what I needed! From the first session, I felt I had been paired with just the right counselor and we got to work right away on worksheets and discussions around boundaries, values, affirmations, positive thoughts, and more to equip me with the tools I need to find my way and dispel the distractions and negativity bogging me down. I am so grateful for the help I received!!

It was an absolute pleasure being able to connect with Dr. Izzard over a period of a few months as I was dealing with a great deal of stress, anxiety and depression as a result of both my work and home environment. Dr. Izzard led a very open and honest dialogue with me to generate ideas and actions that I could put into practice immediately to improve my overall situation. Our weekly sessions were extremely productive and I would highly recommend Dr. Izzard to anyone looking to make continual self improvements like I am/was. Thank you Dr. I!

I had a wonderful experience with Dr. Izzard. She shared tools with me that continually have proven to help me process and overcome anxiety, self-doubt and lack of confidence.

Dr. Izzard brought me on a journey from A to Z.
When I started working with her, I had a lot of anxiety around the future; around my career, my growth, and whether the actions I was about to take aligned with my goals and my foundation in God.
Through a combination of weekly introspection, personal time with God to deepen my spirituality and communion with Him, and useful tools and techniques to routinize the process of re-centering myself, Dr. Izzard helped me see the bigger picture of my life and the plans that God has for me.
She always brought inspirational stories to the table, which enabled me to see my current situation from a higher, wider angle. So much so that I was able to get my anxiety under control within the first few weeks of working with her. Soon enough, I started to experience a sense of relief and "letting go" of the things that were causing me pain and uncertainty. She helped me re-ground myself in God, and gave me tools to navigate through the ups and the downs with faith that everything will ultimately be alright.
Dr. Izzard is prompt, quick to follow up, compassionate, and kind. I would recommend her to anyone.
Thanks so much for your patience and help, Dr. Izzard!

Dr. Izzy was a huge help on my journey. Over the course of about 8 weeks she provided me with great guidance and showed me methods to overcome my challenges. I also became closer to God in the process. She is amazing and I would recommend her a million times over!
