Michelle has been great. She's a really good listener and is able to contribute and provide appropriate guidance as necessary. I've very much appreciated that guidance.

Michelle has been an amazing therapist. I have done therapy face to face before coming to BetterHelp and have loved the flexibility and availability that Michelle has to work around a chaotic schedule.

I have always recommended therapy to my friends and now BetterHelp is a part of that recommendation.

I’ve been working with Michelle for over a week now, and so far I’m really happy with how responsive she’s been and how helpful she’s been. She’s been able to really hone in on my issues so far and I look forward to working with her more.

Written by R.A. on Jan 13, 2020 after counseling with Michelle for 2 months on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, relationship issues, family conflicts, trauma and abuse, grief, intimacy-related issues, eating disorders, and self esteem

When I first joined a BetterHelp, I didn't connect with counselors right away. I continued to search and I found Michelle who has been a perfect match for me. She has been a wonderful source for support and encouragement. She gives me activities and worksheets that I have learned a lot from. I'm very grateful to have her as part of my recovery team. I've noticed a significant improvement in my mental health since working with her.

Michelle is amazing. All the methods she suggested worked like a charm. She really gets to know and understand the situation. I couldn’t have been more lucky to get Michelle as my therapist.

Michelle truly listens to you with clear aim for things to be better. She does this thing where she'll rephrase what you said to her in her own words, to which you can agree or disagree with- it's refreshing if you have people that regularly talk over you without listening to what you have to say.
