I signed up for BetterHealth to ensure I was maintaining a healthy mental state and to get some healthy coping tools, and in just 2 months Lina has helped me gain the confidence to handle difficult situations and even self-judgement. Lina is kind, responsive, and personable, and her reminders to always be present in all aspects of my life is now always at the back of my mind when I start to feel a little overwhelmed.

Lina has been such a huge help in my process of healing. She is able to take my mess of thoughts and feelings swirling through my head and find the core, asking me the questions i need etc. She’s patient and radiates so much compassion. Even when i go MIA she kept checking up on me encouraging me to get back to sessions and when i was ready.
