Laura has been a lifeline for me and a tireless advocate for my health as I navigate a complicated web of medical diagnoses and treatments. She has been essential to my wellness and an important part of my support system. I am very pleased and privileged to have the opportunity to work with her, and she has been a gift in my life. Betterhelp has been consistently helpful to me during my time of medical disability especially, providing a variety of ways to interact with my therapist, whom I trust completely, and attend webinars to better myself. I appreciate the flexibility that Betterhelp offers and I like that if I am too sick or it is a hardship to attend a webinar, it is sent to me and I can view it later. I only wish I had the time and energy to utilize these tools more often as I am extremely busy with my young children and often dysfunctional family relationships. I feel that I am improving with the help of Laura and I am grateful for her expertise, patience, and empathy for me. I have a connection with her and she is very professional in her interactions while being very relatable and personal in her teachings. I cannot express adequately in words how much her help has meant to me, and allowed for growth in my family that I can see as I move forward step by step. Thank you, Laura.

I just finished my 1st session with Laura and it was really great! She is such an awesome person. I could really feel that she cares and is compassionate when it comes to helping me. I didn’t know what to expect before, but after speaking to her, I’m assured and confidence that she is helping to place me on the right track. I suffer from really bad anxiety and have gained a sense of excitement, joy and hope from Laura who has already given me helpful coping mechanisms and search for the root issues of what’s causing my problems. I only wish I had gone to her sooner. I can only speak upon issues of anxiety and depression, and if you suffer with these, I highly recommend having Laura help you with processing these things.
