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

Michelle is exactly the therapist I needed. Whether BetterHelp is just that great at employing and matching therapists (on the first attempt), I don’t know. But I am incredibly grateful for her presence in my journey here.

She’s gentle, considerate, and able to communicate pieces of my healing in ways that resonate and make sense in each stage of achieving my goals.

If you’re reading this while exploring therapists and looking to set, review and expand on goals to guide your healing/make everyday adjustments and truly bring peace to your life, Michelle is incredibly helpful and talented in that area.

I can’t say enough good things about her and my experience with her thus far.

Having worked with Michelle on and off for 18 months, Michelle is always very patient and compassionate. Michelle listens to understand my feelings and emotions and has been a tremendous supporter in helping me to process my thoughts and feelings. I would highly recommend Michelle!

Michelle is the kind and thoughtful and supportive therapist I needed for working through a painful past and the relationship challenges that came with it. Her expertise and professionalism really shows when you need it most and are at your most vulnerable. I always feel comfortable being honest and emotional, and know she will have a suggested path or reflection to support my needs.

Michelle has been instrumental in my growth over the last 20months - constantly being there for the roller coaster that has been my life. She has provided that chance weekly to check in on myself and has been a cheerleader when I have accomplished even the smallest steps. She is amazing
