Reviews

Written by L.E. on Nov 21, 2020 after counseling with Marcela for 2 weeks on issues concerning relationship issues

Dr Mejia was fantastic. I was able to work through some relationship issues with her. She is insightful, has great resources and offers sound and practical advice. The platform was easy to use and navigate. I really enjoyed my first experience with BetterHelp. They really did live up to their name.
