These quotes represent just a few of the many positive reviews that we have received for Melanie Reyes. We don't pay anyone to provide their review and they are all made voluntarily. Some people's experience receiving therapy with BetterHelp might be different.

Being able to connect with Melanie, her ability to easily relate to the cultural nuances impacting my current issues and situation, has made such a big difference in therapy. Without having to go into too much detail, Melanie just gets it. She conveys a good dose of sensitivity and understanding, while providing objectivity and thoughtful feedback on how to approach complicated family dynamics. I also highly recommend her if you are in the helping profession and trying to manage during a highly stressful time for many clinicians/providers. She's been a great support in this regard as well.

Melanie has made such a huge positive impact in my life in such a small amount of time. She’s very responsive, knowledgeable, comforting, and understanding. I would definitely recommend starting therapy with her.
