Maxine is so easy to talk to. She gets me and I always feel better when we chat.

Maxine is outstanding. She is a great active listener. She has proven to be very insightful and kind as she encourages me to open up and explore some areas I didn't even realize I needed to unpack. I had a previous provider through Better Help and it wasn't a great fit. I am so grateful that I tried again and have been matched with Maxine!

I knew within the first five minute of speaking with Maxine that she was going to be perfect for me. She is thoughtful, caring, professional and extremely knowledgeable. I feel comfortable in her presence and look forward to my sessions with her. I'm not sure how I was paired with her but feel like it couldn't have been a better match. Thank you Better Help!!!!
