She is great. Makes me feel super comfortable about whatever we talk about. I don’t feel the need to hide anything, I feel like being transparent 100% when we talk

Leslie was an exceptional match for me. She has a wide range of experience that helped me with the various issues (chronic pain, disability, depression, recovering from a major medical crisis). I am glad to have used Betterhelp just to have worked with a skilled professional.

Leslie has been extremely helpful not only in actively listening, asking questions, and making recommendations but also in following up. My schedule and day to day life events often get in the way of me consistently staying in touch, but Leslie checks in if I don't, and while I appreciate her doping her job, it's also clear that she genuinely cares about the people she works with.

Leslie is a very good listener and is patient with me. I have had a lot of things I wanted to say for a long time and I haven’t found anyone willing to do it on an unbiased level. Leslie does that, with that said everything is not poor me she offers support through questions and statements that are understanding. I don’t feel like I’m being interrogated which is also a bonus.

She is knowledgeable, personable and kind counselor who is great in connecting dots and finding patterns in one’s behavior. She is aware of immigration challenges and that helps with the process specially with the ones who have been in that track of life.
