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

I’ve been working with Melissa for over a year now. From the moment I met her, she has made me feel comfortable and made it easy to open up to her. She genuinely cares and it shows. Week after week, we have talked and she has helped me navigate through some tough times. She has a way of letting the conversation flow, while working her magic. I’ve had a lot of progress over the year, and couldn’t have done it without her!

My therapist is very engaged in my well-being. I truly feel that she's just not in it for the job but she really does help her clients work through their issues and be more productive and happy in life. I struggle a lot and she is very good with helping me work out my issues.

Melissa does an excellent job of listening and really hearing what I am saying. She is very focused on what I need right now in terms of support. I love that she gives me ideas and tools that are practical and can be used in my current day to day. Wonderful experience so far.

After my session with Melissa, I realized just how much she was going to be able to help me. We hit it off & I enjoyed talking with her. I did not mind sharing with her & realized we had so much in common. I feel like God placed together for this time of healing & new beginning for me.

super casual and feels like you are talking to a friend which is more comforting than a serious session

Written by C.H. on Mar 23, 2021 after therapy with Melissa for 1 month on issues concerning stress, anxiety

Melissa is very personable. Our sessions seem more like casual discussions than sterile therapy. I have already noticed a change in the way I approach things after only a few appointments. I'm very pleased so far.
