Written by H.A. on Aug 22, 2018 after counseling with Lesa for 2 months on issues concerning relationship

Lesa is one of the best counselors I have ever worked with, she listens, gives great advice and empathizes really well. She makes me feel heard and offers solutions when I'm looking for them, not just venting. I am so thankful to be working with her.

Lesa is wonderful and an amazing listener. She is kind and provides wisdom without judgement.

She is wonderful. She listened to my story and led me to ways to handle my anxiety and issues. I feel she really cares about me and if I picked, I would pinpoint her to help anyone I feel needs help. She makes me feel comfortable enough to talk about my past and helps me push past things I never thought was possible.

I worked with Lesa for a week. She is very kind, understanding and professional. After listing to her recommendations I found myself back and now I feel way better. Love you dear Lesa! You are such a wonderful and lovely soul.

Lesa is very kind, helpful, understanding and helps me a lot to understand what I'm feeling, why, and feel like I made some improvement in my life, all thanks to what she has said to me.

This was my first time seeking therapy and I would highly recommend Lesa. She is very relatable and very well trained in her field. I honestly didn't have much faith in this whole experience before signing up but she has completely changed my outlook. She has helped me better myself as a person but also as partner in my relationship. I can't thank better help enough for being an affordable option for counseling, but more importantly I'm most appreciative for Lesa offering guidance in my journey.

Lesa has been helping me to process a very long and hard break up. I appreciate her patience, validation, and understanding. She is helping me to think about things in a different way and I'm benefiting from her expertise and skill as a therapist.

Lesa is wonderful in helping me get through the tough times I am experiencing right now. As a first timer on BetterHelp I felt that it helped me gained some new perspective especially with a great listener like Lesa.
