Linda is very aware about what I need to focus on versus what I thought I needed to improve my mental health!

Linda has been a wonderful help through some terrible times. She's made me feel as if I'm not on this journey alone, and really helped build my self confidence.

I am excited to see where therapy takes me from here, under Linda's guidance.

Linda Goldsmith, though only the beginning of my journey, has been greatly helpful! She listens, has insightful thoughts, gives great feedback, and I would 10/10 recommend her! Not only that, but also I would recommend BetterHelp, and, in fact, I have! My friends and family are also signing up! even though it is my first week, Ms. Goldsmith and I are getting to good places! You have to do the work, but it's worth it, even when it seems trivial. It works! Even when there are hard days!

Linda helped me learn to deal with workplace related stress and anxiety at a time in my life when most things felt very overwhelming. Thank you, Linda!
