These quotes represent just a few of the many positive reviews that we have received for Dr. Larry Whorley. 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.

He has given me things that I can use to help me recognize triggers and coping skills. Suggestions that he has given like attending a group session has helped me relax more. We stay in contact through out the week so he can monitor me. BetterHelp platform is turning out to work with my schedule.

The real therapist. Like that he gives homework to do and recommends to seek outside connections. Very therapeutic!

Dr. Whorley listened to my concerns, suggested great material, and I felt like he very much cared about me and what I am working on. Perhaps what stands out most is that he would check in between sessions to see how I was doing.
