These quotes represent just a few of the many positive reviews that we have received for Melat Johnson . 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.

Melat has been my therapist since I began BetterHelp. She’s such a great therapist and makes you feel safe and comfortable to be yourself. It’s as if she’s a breath of fresh air. She goes at your pace and brings a lot of motivation. I’d literally recommend her as many times as I could!!! She’s amazing. I honestly don’t want another therapist after Melat!

Was able to help put out immediate fires and now is helping with longer term issues.
Can highly recommend.

I've only had 2 sessions with Dr. Johnson so far but this is the first time in my life I feel heard and understood when talking about my emotions and thought process. I trust her expertise and knowledge. She treats me as an equal, as a human being and really listens without judgment.

Melat has been fantastic and offered some really insightful advice to me during our sessions, she was great at helping me to understand what was going on with me and to take positive steps to work on my issues.

Melat was able to make session times that worked into my schedule. That is hard to find!
Melat is a good listener and gives me the time to think and to speak. She isn't putting words in my mouth but will ask for clarification or make suggestions to help make my point.
To be honest, I had signed up and then cancelled with Betterhelp the very next day. A representative of Betterhelp helped me get into contact with Melat. I am very grateful for that representative that wouldn't let me quit and for Melat for taking the time to help me be a better me.
