Laurel is simply amazing, she’s helped me so much and I feel like she helped set my mental state back on the right track. Before I started therapy I was pretty bad but now I feel like I can take on the world and I have Laurel to thank for that. I’ll always have a special place in my heart for her. Thank you for everything!

Laurel has been so wonderful. We have only had a couple sessions but she seems to really understand what I am going through and actually gives me tools to help guide me. It doesn't feel weird or awkward. It feels like I am talking to a friend who is genuinely concerned and wanting to help. I would 110% recommend her and Better Help to anyone.
