Ms Linda helped our family navigate through some really turbulent times in our marriage. We are learning to communicate more effectively and it's been working positively to our marriage benefit. Her expertise is strong, this gives me confidence that we will live through the crisis.

Linda is a great listener and has a keen sense of people. I connected instantly with her and through her insights I had some great breakthroughs. Using BetterHelp let me overcome any fears I had about therapy.
